Many people have been emailing us and asking us to put up a feature where people could comment on what really is a Regular Coffee.
The folks on the East Coast are telling us – especially those in the Boston area – that a Regular Coffee contains both cream and sugar. It’s a darker brown in color, but not too dark; there is enough cream there to be seen and tasted. And the sugar does not over power the taste of the coffee, but it just enough to sweeten it.
Now the folks on the West Coast are telling us that a Regular Coffee is simply straight up black – no additives of any kind. If they’re using cream, it’s low fat milk and if they’re using sugar, it’s a sweetener substitute like Splenda; but those people are definatley in the minority.
We haven’t heard much from the Midwest, but from those I have coffee with often, most of them have it black too.
If you’re interested in how I take my coffee, it’s mostly cream and sugar with some Dunkin’ Donuts coffee added. Generally when I’m done doctoring it, it’s whiter than a Chicago snow fall.
Let us know what how you take your coffee and what you believe a regular coffee contains.
