I never put plain white sugar. Usually I drink it black, sometimes with just skim milk, sometimes I will put a little skim milk and Raw Sugar or this 2 calories sweetener made from all natural Chinese fruit extracts called Sweet and Slender (bought at Whole Foods in a magenta, yes magenta, box).

Quoting Aloges (Reply 15): I bet the difference between a "cafézinho" and airplane "coffee" would surprise you.
Nah, just regular coffee would do it for me. Not the Starbucks-stuff (with their standards I need a triple espresso without sugar...), not the Senseo (Dutch and Belgians will understand), just the stuff I make at home, or the stuff you can get in every Swedish café!
We have it in Germany, too. I've never tried it, though.

I've had one cup of Starbucks "coffee" during the last year, and that was exactly what I was looking for at the time: a refreshing high-sugar drink with a bit of caffeine to inject some energy into me.

Quoting Aloges (Reply 21): However, "cafézinho" pretty much is the regular thing in Brazil.
Ok, I didn't remember the Portuguese word. It has been a couple of months since I was in Brazil. We were visiting my Swedish girlfriends brother there, so I got the chance to have Swedish coffee in the first week. The Brazilian hotels have pretty good standards too, so I'd say it comes down to:
Brazil + coffee = good combination
Brazil + coffee + VARIG = about the worst coffee I've ever tasted.
BTW: coffee is my only addiction, hence the effort I put in this thread.
