Atkins cafe caramel shake. I add two teaspoons of instant folgers and 1 tbsp. heavy cream. Blend it up in my magic bullet with ice. Your own atkins style frappucino. It's amazing!

My dad gave me a generous Starbucks gift card for my birthday 6 years ago that I am still using to this day. It's great for road trips, post-airport runs in the morning, and nighttime decaf stops. As for my morning coffee, I usually have it at home: with a generous splash of heavy cream, 3 tablespoons salted butter, ground cinnamon, & 2 Stevia packets. Try it!

I don't drink coffee, but have a heck of a tea habit. I've switched to half and half so I use about 2 tablespoons of that and often a couple shakes of Penzys Vietnanese Cinnamon. It melts right in.

It adds fat, but also has great micronutrients! Just don't use salted butter!!!


I have a long lack with heavy cream and Norbu sweetner. Itis my breakfast ever day, and is so awesome lol I make mine in one of those stove top coffee makers, using awesome local to us ground beans.

There are some great cafes near to me, but in Australia NO ONE serves coffee with cream. Milk or soy milk or black are your options Starbucks over here only have sweetened whipped cream. When I stayed in the city last weekend, I took my own cream with me into Starbucks

I was just wondering some things to try in my coffee, because lately I cant function without it! I don't own a coffee pot because everything I have attempted to make a pot of coffee it doesn't taste too pleasant.. if I could make a good pot of coffee I would like to buy a coffee maker

I work at Starbucks and love my job what could be better than making drinks for people who love them I don't spend my money on Starbucks,I make extra when someone orders and have that I love my job

Anyhoo, when not at work (I am very part time right now, just 1 day a week) I love love love my Keurig!!! My husband and I drink very different coffee and it only makes 1 cup at a time. He loves strong black very coffee tasting coffee. I Love anything that makes it taste like no coffee We could not be opposite in that respect! But I love to add my sweetener, heavy whipping cream and 1 TBP of Hershey's Special Dark cocoa powder (do not like the original cocoa powder) to my regular cup of coffee and it is deelish I love it so much I have 3 cups just like that throughout the day.

Adding butter to coffee just tastes great! It has been done for generations (my mother said her grandfather used to take his coffee this way) and is referred colloquially to as "Bulletproof Coffee." As for the fat factor, I allow it with gusto on Atkins; however, fat isn't something I consciously make a point to incorporate just for the sake of adding more in. My recommendation is to try it along with heavy cream. It's good and unusual - I really think you'll like it.

I love iced coffee! I used to get an iced coffee from McDonalds every morning with sugar free vanilla syrup. And, then I realized it is 8 carbs. Ugh...I about died. And, then I found Maxwell House sugar free international suisse mocha. I mix it with a cup of water and microwave. Pour it over ice cubes, and then the real treat is a splash of almond milk. I found one by Califia Farms that is 40 cals, 1 carb, 1 fiber for 1 full cup. That coffee is 2 carbs per cup. So, I have really knocked out some extra carbs, and I get a nice big iced coffee everyday!!!1

I would recommend a French press. It makes wonderful coffee, quite easily. And it will save you a LOT of money.

Taste mainly! When they were talking about BPCs they stressed unsalted butter because it messes with the flavour of coffee...but I guess if you don't mind it, go salted

Now that's a neat idea...

I cinnamon, but hate how ground cinnamon floats on top of coffee. I should try the sticks. Do you use them more than once?

I use Penzy's Vietnamise Cinnamon in my tea-- it doesn't float like other brands, it kind of melts in. Love it!
