Nasty Stuff that sugar...I prefer it balck and straight, that way you get all the flavours etc. Tried honey, but that went badly wrong. Saying that I used to have a double shot with equal parts condensed milk....that was nice!!!

I'm talking about a 1.5oz shot.... (0.04 liter) so if I would use 1.5 spoon of sugar there would be more sugar than coffee in the cup ;)

When I use a moka pot and have a big cuppa then 1 teaspoon of sugar.

No sugar needed unless a roast goes really wrong.

Cheers,

I think I figured it out: continentals drink sugar in their coffee, UK inhabitants don't.
