What are some of the things you put in your coffee to make it taste better? I am not talking normal cream or sugar. I want to know some of the other things that make it better. A friend of mine says he brews it with cinnamon. Sounds interesting but there has to be some other things that can add to it. Lets hear it GAF.

Honey works well. I never take sugar in my coffee, but a bit of honey once in a while is okay.

Dunk a couple gingersnaps in it. Scoop them out with a spoon all mushy and coffee-soaked (yum), drink sweet-ginger coffee.

I always drink black coffee, but that sounds amazing.

Freshly ground coffee beans + water. Adding anything else makes it worse.

I can't think of anything other than 2% milk I put into my coffee. I feel it ruins the taste for me.

A tiny bit of vanilla extract in the grounds before you brew it, makes for a nice vanilla coffee.

A little bit of salt in the grounds while it's brewing is awesome. Salty, smokey, black coffee is where it's at.

I haven't tried this before, but it sounds like it might be a nice change. I'll try this for my next pot, thx.

Normally? Nothing. I like my coffee black, like I like my presidents.

Occasional additions, though never together:

-Baker's cream. 40% butterfat, as opposed to 36% in whipping cream, 15% in half and half, or 3% in whole milk. Accept nothing less.

-Coffee ice cream. Self explanatory.

-Cinnamon. World's greatest spice.

-Cognac. For a classy kick.

I have an ibrik and add condesed milk and a little sugar but usually just black coffee from a french press, freshly ground and filtered water.

That vanilla extract sounds awsome. I might try some almond extract too, great idea to change it up every now and then, I do suppose rarely adding some chocolate happens too.

Never heard of adding salt to the grounds either.

[edit:] heck yeah, coconut oil!

Someone said it already but a tiny bit of salt added to the grounds before brewing.

Salt + cocoa powder is also good.

I love creamer in my coffee and have tried just about all of them. Yeah I'm a fan of Bailey's and various other alcoholic additions, but on an everyday basis it's hard to top this one.

That artificial cream shit is full of partially dehydrogenated oil solids. You consume that multiple times daily and your arteries will get fucked up.

Nothing beats heavy whipping cream and splenda.
