How do you like your coffee?

I like my coffee with some fresh milk and half a teaspoon of sugar. I always insist that my coffee be steaming hot although for some reason I rarely ever finish until it is just starting to get cold.

  1. I'm not a coffee drinker at all so this is great to know!

  2. Good to know because I love my morning coffee (and blogging and Facebook... ;0)

  3. I'd drink it every morning even without those benefits! Although, I would have started drinking it years earlier if I'd known about those gall stones. Man, those things are killers!

  4. I don't drink coffee. Well I do like iced coffee but I don't it very often.

  5. It prevents dental cavities? Are you serious? Sweet!

  6. I have heard that coffee can be good for you. I am not a coffee drinker though

  7. That is great! I love coffee and it's great to know all these benefits, makes me want to drink more!
