So with the beans being a mark of posting, how much coffee do people consume in an average day?

I have to *cough* confess to drinking enough coffee to be embarrassed by my own consumption.

Call me stupid but what does "I have a drip" mean?

If it means I always have a coffee with me then that's my choice.

I've cut back to 5 or 6 cups a day. I used to have to wash my face in a 32 cup coffee maker just to get started in the morning :D

:D I think it means as in "IV Drip", as in, constant supply directly to the bloodstream.....thats where I used to be.

I'm more of a tea man but during term-time coffee is good for keeping me awake writing essays. Got a cafetiere for Christmas to help me through...I do enjoy coffee but I know of people my age (c. 20) who've been told by doctors to stop drinking already!

Where is the tea option, eh? That's tea discrimination. I demand it be added :p

So ya, I don't drink any coffee, one cup of tea a day when I need a boost its two.

Hey, if it's any consolation, I'm closer to 50, and drink at least a pot of coffee BEFORE I leave the house in the morning...*l*

I'm good for about 4 cups in the eraly morning, then one or two in the afternoon.

With temps reaching 115, I have switched to giant cups of iced coffee -my consumption had escalated. I now seem to have developed a 60hz hum.

Green tea for me, thanks. I dont understand the whole 'coffee' thing, it's never given me any 'wake-up' effects. If anything, coffee makes me feel sleepy :S

When I absolutely, positively need to stay awake, Green Tea is amazing stuff. Always works, even better than coffee.

I own my own espresso machine - one 16 oz (double shot) Latte out the door on the way to work.

On the weekends it's usually waking up with a 16 oz latte followed by a few 8 oz Cappucino's

I went for less than three/day because I had none yesterday but like a good cup of coffee, especially when the hours get really long, contrary to the "zero" option.

I did a lot of latte's for a while then Cafe au Lait. Usually I only do the strait black stuff anymore when its decent and nothing else is avaliable.

2-3 times/week, but not regular coffee, there's what's called a French Vanilla here at the Tim Horton's chain of restaurants in Canada. More like 1-2 times/week at most now, but in the winter they are great on weekends while watching a movie :) (I dislike hot drinks in the hot weather)

Can't imagine a morning without a cup of coffee and the news.

I get addicted way too easy, so I ty to stick to that one morning cup only each day.

8 - 10 mugs of filter coffee per day. I get headaches if I don't drink coffee

Coffee? Umm, sometimes I guess. I'm really not that picky. I get my caffeine anyway I can. Coffee (even instant), Tea, soda - whatever it takes to get my fix.

When I really need a lot of "get up and go", which isn't very often, I'll reach for either a pot of tea or coffee. I reckon its not healthy to do that too often though, so I abstain, usually I don't absorb more than about 500 mg/caffeine a day.

No thanks, a nice strong cup of tea is what I need. I'm also down with maté.

Tea here as well. About 2-4 cups a day, depending on my mood. Usually black, no cream, no sugar. I'll have a latte every now and then if I'm at a coffee shop, but that's about it.

I get headaches if I don't drink coffeeYeah, weekends when my wife, another avid coffee drinker, was pregnant so that the smell of coffee made her nauseous, I ended up with a lot of headaches by mid-morning. Took me a while to figure out it had to be caffeine withdrawal. So I used soda during those weekends (anybody know where I can get Jolt anymore?!)

Sunforge

The curious thing is that I don't drink that much coffee at weekends, although I'm a fiend for it during the week.

Anyone else change habits weekday to weekend?

lisati
July 6th, 2007, 11:27 PM
I was reading a poll on another website about what sort of coffee people drink. They didn't have "instant coffee" on their list, which is what I usually have at home, I ended up choosing "I don't want to aswer this question."

On reflection, it could be that in some circles it would be perceived as a sign of weakness to drink instant coffe AND admit to it......

I nearly always have a cup of coffee close by (even in 100+ degree heat, at all times of day), and have been known to commandeer the cups of old ladies during emergency situations.

I don't usually notice the buzz unless I drink a few cups on an empty stomach.

Several months back, you could say I had a drip. But I've cut back to less than six cups (in this case 10-Oz. mugs) per day.

Still, I'm not the same person without my morning coffee.

Used to be a lot more but generally a cup when I get to work and 1 at lunch. no more

In the morning when I go to school I drink a cup of tea plus a cup of filter coffee en usually 1 cup of filter coffee in the evening. At my work however there's a nice espresso machine so I usually have one or two espresso's or cappuccino's there.

Nothing beat's a pure strong espresso combined with an "after eight"(thin chocolate with mint)!

Hi :popcorn:ch.

Yea, that would come close. I'd cheat though and open the valve to get a steady flow. \\:D/

So you susbcribe to the steady flow theory? I prefer the many little bangs theory (some 6 cups of espresso a day, and then some at night).

Steady flow keeps me wired, and maté (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mate_(beverage)) gives me the "pick-me-up" :)

But don't believe everything you read. This is bunk (http://www.noborders.net/mate/index.html) where they say: ( B, I, U are mine )


More than a drink, Yerba Mate has become a cultural phenomenon throughout South America. Its benefits are obvious. In Buenos Aires, where people carry their Mate with them throughout the day, the site of an obese person is rare. Click on the menu items to the left to find out if Mate could be for you.

and their link to a Buenos Aires person with a maté is wonderful. I've never seen a maté (the gourd) like that in use here. But it is highly favoured in Uruguay where it is true that people walk around the cities with a maté, but not here.

And then there is this line:

the site of an obese person is rare
The person who wrote that is obviously blind or never been here.

Such bunk.
Gotta run, going to the in-laws for a maté.
Seriously, we are. :)

I can kind of understand that quotation. When you go about town carrying your mate, I can practically guarantee that either you, your mate or both can not be obese.

Not the same as Maté, it seems.

I work at sea, when I am at home I have 3 or 4 cups of coffee per day, when i am at sea I have one at 0630 before I leave my cabin, one with breakfast at around 0700, one when I get to the engine room at around 0715...... Can anyone see a pattern developing here?

I kept count one day and it added up to 25 cups of coffee, although we had some pretty bad mechanical problems that day (Imagine a whole ship controlled by Windows computers) and I didn't finally leave the engine room until 0200 the next morning.

Up until I came here, "mate" meant one of two things, depending on who I was talking to.

British English - mate - a friend
Canada & US - mate is the person you are sleeping with (ie: wife)

Then along came maté ( ma-tay : like say )

Imagine my surprise when I saw "mate" in a message that was referring to "maté" when I didn't know "maté" existed.

"Every Wednesday a group of my friends and I get together and we share a mate."

YEA! RIGHT!


Not the same as Maté, it seems.

No, not quite. :lolflag:

Although, you can share a maté with a mate. :)
