Coffees in general.

Thipu1:
The thread asking for Australian coffee help brought this to mind.

What constitutes a 'regular' coffee varies greatly from region to region, even in the USA.  In some places, a regular coffee contains both milk and sugar.  In others, a regular coffee is black.  When we're eating out we always order our coffee as, 'black, no sugar'.

When we were in Rome and wanted a plain, black coffee we always ordered an Americano. 

What's a regular coffee where you live?

Giggity:
If I order coffee in Houston, it comes black. Anything else, you gotta specify.

That's the way it is here in Maryland. You order it the way you want it...cream & sugar, etc. It doesn't have a name for a type.

At Tim Horton's in my area, a regular is one cream, one sugar.
