Do you drink coffee? Why or why not?

    Why wouldn't you drink it! Best invention of life

    Only two cups a day. One early morning before work and one mid afternoon just to keep the alertness going 😀

    I was always a tea drinker, but recently I’ve begun to drink coffee. I love the smell and enjoy a latte occasionally, but I find myself now drinking a cup of coffee with half & half every morning and sometimes another in the afternoon.

    I didn't start drinking coffee until I was in my 30's. I drank Mountain Dew instead. I decided I still wanted caffeine without all the other stuff and tried coffee. Now, I drink it every day but not much, one or two cups a day is my max.

    I don't drink it every day, but I do enjoy coffee a lot. I just don't get up early enough to make myself a cup without being late. I have a hard time dragging myself out of bed at 5:30am, even though I've been working this shift for 7 years.

    If my office had a coffee pot, I would drink coffee all day long. I'll drink it black, but I do prefer it with a splash of milk and splenda, or a small amount of creamer.

    No no and no. Don't like coffee at all. The times I have accidentally picked up someone else's coffee cup and have had a mouthful of coffee or eaten a coffee lolly / chocolate, I may have never moved so quickly as to find a sink, rubbish bin or sink.

    Weird thing is I don't actually mind the smell of freshly ground coffee beans....but just don't ask me to drink it.

    The world is a better place because I get my 24-30 ounces of iced coffee every day.

    I drink it black. 6 calories for the 30, and 5 for the 24. It's a little steeper if I'm at home with one of the fancyass cold brew bottled mixes -- 13 calories for 8 ounces -- but is still worth the calories.

    I drink coffee because I like it.

    Also, it's a myth that it dehydrates you. There is a mild diuretic effect associated with the caffeine but not enough to counter the amount of water you're drinking with a cup of coffee.

    Can't live without morning coffee.

    Have one cup every morning with sugar free vanilla creamer.
  • monicapiazzamonicapiazza Posts: 92Member Member Posts: 92Member Member
    Yes. Coffee is life haha. I allocate close to 300 calories a day for it (creamer, sugar ect)

    Don't drink it. Think it's gross no matter how much crap you put in it

    Yuck, it tastes awful and ruins the taste of many good desserts

    Been drinking coffee since age 4 so I must drink it daily or else I get really bad caffeine headaches. Over the years, I've decreased my intake from 6+ cups of coffee to 2 cups in the morning, Monday through Saturday.

    I'm imagining little 4 yr old you in the car seat with your styrofoam cup of joe cursing out the bad drivers on your way to school :lol:

    I grew up with Italian relatives so the only reason I didn't drink espresso as a child is because I hated the smell! But I did have a little cordial glass with wine in it at holiday dinners :drinker:

    I drink one cup in the morning every day. Sometimes a second in early afternoon if I'm really dragging. I also sometimes have a cup or two of tea and a diet soda the rest of the day, but the caffeine in coffee is really the only time I feel it.

    I am a coffee snob. Kenyan AA, Columbian, Sumatra - all whole bean - all freshly ground - are my favorites.

    FWIW - if you must buy coffee that is prepackaged, Starbucks and Peet's are acceptable alternatives IMHO.

    I will give up bourbon before I give up coffee.

    Starbucks is NOT acceptable coffee. You want to avoid the big companies. Find a local coffeehouse that imports and roasts their own coffeebeans in small batches, not by the ton like Charbucks does.

    Amen. This is what I call them, too.

    I drink two strong cups a day to ward off homicidal rage and to be socially acceptable. I consider it an insurance policy. I don't have enough money to bail me out. Coffee is a far cheaper option :D:D:D
