Coffee drinkers are quite particular on how they take their coffee. Some coffee lovers look down on those whose coffee looks like creamer with a side of coffee, and others cannot even imagine drinking it black. We decided that we would ask the controversial question to find out how South Jersey takes their coffee.

The responses are extremely specific. The type and cost of coffee effects the color of said coffee. The cheaper and worse the coffee the lighter the color. Also, alcohol is a factor. If the coffee has Bailey's, #1 is overwhelming acceptable. So, how does South Jersey prefer to take their coffee?

Overwhelmingly, South Jersey prefers coffee shade 2.
