alexcwlin comments:

It all depends on the circumstances where the expression is spoken. (看乎语境吧)

1. If it is spoken by a coffee server before the coffee is served, then it is the same as (如果咖啡服务员在咖啡端上来之前说了这句话,那么这句话的意思跟如下一样的):

a. How would you like your coffee?

b. What (would/do) you like in your coffee?

c. What do you like to (have in/put into) your coffee?

Then your response would be (那么你的回应会是):

a. (I like it black/I’ll take it black, please)! (黑咖啡)

b. Two sugars please! (两份糖)

c. Two creams but no sugar, please! (两份奶走糖)

d. (Regular/Cream and suger) please! (一份糖加一份奶)

e. Double-double please (两份糖加两份奶)

2. If it is spoken by someone while you are drinking the coffee, then it’s the same as (如果有人在你喝咖啡的时候说了这句话,那么这句话就是跟如下相同):

a. How’s your coffee?

b. Do you like your coffee?

Then your response would be (那么你的回应会是):

a. It’s great! (极好)

b. I like it very much.

c. Mmmh! It’s delicious! (唔, 滋味)

d. It’s (okay/so-and-so)! (一般吧)

e. I’ve had better (note: this is a rude response). (我以前喝过更好的. 注意: 这是各无礼的回应)

f. (It tastes awful/Yuck/It tastes like pee)! (它尝起来很差/恶心/尝来像小便)

(Note: If a question is asked after you have finished your coffee, then the question would be phrased as “How did you like your coffee?”. The response would be along the line of Item #2 above with appropriate modification to reflect Past Tense.) (如果有人在你喝完咖啡后问你一个问题,那么这个问题就可以用“How did you like your coffee?”回答应与上文第2项一致,并作适当修改以反映过去时态)

3. Question:
