i drink my coffee pitch black, straight up, and without any additives. the quality of the coffee becomes stripped when there isn't a residue of sweetening or whitening in sight, and i'm quite selective with my java.
at home my preferred choice is either from harvey nichols or dean and deluca courtesy of friends and family abroad. because my consumption surpasses reasonable amounts, i often must try locally available varieties and if necessary, even supermarket brands of which i prefer meira's fair trade version.
my favorite place in my neighborhood to sit down and enjoy a cup of my daily drug is bali-hai. (i apologize for the link; curiously, they lack a proper website...) their coffee is of italian origin, a medium and rather fruity roast, but i've never asked the brand. served from proper porcelain cups with saucers the experience is rather charming without feeling cheesy. as a huge plus, there are endless refills my friends and i exploit fearing we'll be banned forever from the place.
and the food is worth trying, too.
