Your Coffee Intake...


First cup was long gone by 7:30.

I can tell this is going to be one of those days that ends with my hands shaking vigorously.

What's your coffee intake? I honestly drink usually no less than 60oz of coffee a day. Usually closer to 80-100.

I can't be the only one.

Ditto, and just swap it for a bag of alcohol at 6pm.

Re: Your Coffee Intake...


At this point it's all about the ritual of going out and getting the first cup.

It feels good to walk down the block, read the paper headlines, say what's up to my dealer(deli counter guy), and head back with a delicious hot cup of Joe.
They actually just got a Nescafe machine at my deli so Espresso is now an option on the table for me, in case I feel like I need to mainline.

Coffee is bad for you. Especially if you use sugar. I never drink coffee.

Not in moderation. Obviously.

All the diets and workout plans are ok with you drinking black coffee. Even the clean eaters allow it.

But like you said, it's the cream and sugar that is killer

Somedays as much as 2 pots, others only 4 cups. It all depends on the day.

Man, if cream and sugar is for girlies, than what does my raw sugar and soy milk cup make me?

Actually, don't answer that.

Re: Your Coffee Intake...


I drink 3 to 4 large cups in the morning. If I am having to go out I have one at home and one in a centrino coffee mug. Keeps it hot as long as I need it to be.

I will at times have a coffee in the afternoon but not after 5 or 6.

I use turbinado sugar its spun in a turbine to remove the molasses. It still has some just enough for a nice flavour. and 10% cream in mine.

Re: Your Coffee Intake...


I love the smell of coffee in the morning.

I could (and have) finish a whole pot of coffee before noon.

no sugar, no cream - that stuff goes right to the hips. Just a little milk for colour.

Re: Your Coffee Intake...


I used to drink coffee all day, probably 3 pots but now that I'm older, my bladder, nerves and stomach can't handle more than about a 1/2 pot in the morning. Any coffee after around 4:00 keeps me up at night.

I love coffee but it doesn't like me anymore
