    It’s an age old story: sacrificing something for a woman’s love.

    Not to hijack, but what do you Brits use in your tea?

    I have been trying to wean myself off of coffee creamer. I am down to about 2 tablespoons per cup of half and half. I used to splash it in the cup with no regard except for the color of the coffee.

    It's always been half and half, but I could consider cream if I could reduce that to about a tablespoon per cup.

    Awesome, yummy, delicious cream.

    We've wintered in Virginia a few times and missed it terribly.

    I usually drink my coffee black. Sometimes I use half and half when it’s available. Not a big fan of full cream in coffee because the fat in it separates and forms tiny pools on the surface. Grosses me out when that happens.

    Half and half and a Splenda, about 3x per day.


    Makes me the worlds most sorta-calorie-conscious person ever.

    I drink my coffee black but half and half for espresso. Nespresso Vertuo is pretty strong.

    Like the supersize me but make it a diet coke crowd.

    Except coffee is life so you get a pass from the gods.

    2% for cappuccino because it forms a stiffer froth. We use 2% or whole for coffee. We always buy organic mile. Who needs extra antibiotics or nine year-olds with breasts from the hormones? We buy milk from grazed cows where available. That used to be a Whole Foods thing but we're finding it in more and more food stores these days. My wife and I rarely buy coffee out. Starbucks is too hit or miss and 7-11 and Dunkin miss by a mile.

    Half and half for me when I use anything at all.

    I was discussing the finer points of half and half vs. powdered creamer near the coffee machine at work a while back. Our driver and his helper were walking by and the helper asked "what's half and half?"

    Without missing a beat, our driver answered, "It's what fat people put in their coffee."

    What's half and half?

    I tend to have small black coffee, but it's common for people here to put cream in their coffee (typically 15% fat). We even have tiny plastic tubs of cream that are served along with coffee, that Swiss people are very attached to.

    Occasionally, in France or Italy (where normal coffee is served with no milk or cream), you'll see a Swiss tourist pull out a tiny tub of cream to add to his coffee :).
