Coffee - Do you drink it ?

I'm a coffee drinker and was wondering what are some acceptables sweeteners and creamers?

I always drink it with sweetzfree liquid Splenda and HWC.

Sometimes I also add butter or coconut oil for bulletproof coffee.

I drink it with joyous abandon. Caution it is supposed to stall some people though. I don't use sweetener as I find it too cloying in coffee, but I use
CCO ,butter and heavy cream. I also have a sweet coconut oil I extract myself from desiccated coconut and that gives it a nice rounded flavour with just a hint of sweetness.

My preferred sweetener is stevia. I don't get the aftertaste that some do. I also use Torani or Davinici SF syrups from time to time if I want something different

I just use regular old Coffee Mate creamer.... and that's only to cut down on the acidity a tad.

I do exactly that, HWC and Splenda or davincis sugar free caramel. I make a full pot and have one mug to take, and use the rest the next couple days for the same version iced. Also very good! Keep forgetting to try butter, but it seems lately I've been trying to catch up on protein bc my fat is so high!

I love coffee and know I drink too much. I like it iced and black. As a matter of fact, I'm drinking some right now.

I added unsweetened vanilla almond milk to it a couple of weeks ago found that pleasant. (I know that won't work for the general coffee-loving populace but just thought I'd throw it out there lol.)

I have had great success with mixing a medium roast coffee (Pike's Place in this case) with chocolate protein powder and serving it after dinner. It even satisfied my fake sweetener hating, I'd-like-a-bit-of-coffee-with-my-sugar ex.
