    I drink coffee everyday. In the morning, the afternoon, and occasionally late in the evening. I used to be a barista at Starbucks, and that took my already present caffeine addiction to new heights. I probably consumed 900-1100mg of caffeine a day on average.

    To cut to the chase. How much coffee, latte, cappuccino or espresso do you enjoy in a day, and how do you drink it?

    I really like an iced latte with various flavors and extra espresso. Or a pour over coffee ground fresh made a little stronger than normal, with a bit of turbinado sugar and heavy cream as an accent. Cheers! ☕

    I. Love. Coffee.

    I drink it all day long, I prefer it with a bit of 1/2 & 1/2 but I'll drink it black if needed. Coffee, like gravy is one of nature's miracles.

    I don't know if I qualify as a coffee "nut". I do drink it daily. On work days I take a 16oz travel cup with me and drink that plus another cup later in the afternoon. Days off I brew a pot in the morning and have a cup or 2 and that's it. All coffee I consume is just plain ole black. No foo foo cream or sugar or high fructose garbage. Just the coffee.

    Well, lets just put it this way: the serving size of my cappucino is 3tbs to 8oz of water. I do 7-8 to about 16, twice every morning.

    Full 12 cup pot of Folger's® Gourmet Supreme every morning.
    If I don't finish it, it's there when I get home. Then re-heat.

    Nope..I am a serious Mountain Dew drinker..but coffee hits me sideways..makes my head swell..and actually wigs me out a bit. Plus is so acidic it causes my GERD to really act up, yet Dew does not.
    BUT..
    My lil lady was a barista at Starbucks as well..her drink is a espresso shot over ice, (tall in venti cup, ice to top) 3 pumps of mocha, and fills the rest with milk, with a splash of half and half.

    i drink coffee mostly all day. 6 to 8 cups in the morning before i go to
    work, then i take a 32oz rumbler with me to work. large cup after lunch.
    on the wknds i'll kill a full pot through the morning.

    i usually drink it just black, with a pinch of sugar, but i'll drink it all. a
    4 shot latte, or a 2 shot topper on a cup of coffee. iced coffee. love all
    of it, and drink way to much. i stray away from the natural stuff once
    in a while and get a caramel frapp or some fruity arse drink, too.

    Maybe 1 cup a year. I don't like caffeine. Makes me tired within 15 minutes. Not lying or being a smartass. I drink caffeine free drinks. Squirt is my go to along with Arnold Palmers.

    Love coffee. Look forward to it every day. First cup is italian dark roast. Second, a fresh 3 shot americano. Always black. Sometimes if things are slow at work. I'll have a double espresso to boost things up.

    About of pot of coffee per day ... but like today since I got my teeth cleaned at the dentist I did not drink any ... thought I'd keep em unstained for 1 day. :laugh2:

    I like good coffee, but I am not a coffee snob. I can drink office coffee.

    I don't like instant very much ... from the big machines or from a cabinet at home.

    I like Starbucks Komodo Dragon coffee very well. But then I like McDonald's coffee too. Actually McDonald's coffee is pretty damned good. :thumb:

    This has been the defacto pot for the weekends, for the last few years. Sometimes it gets switched with Sumatra.

    Oh, and can drink a latte ... but to me that ain't coffee. That is a milkshake with an espresso in it. :laugh2:

    I drink enough coffee each day that I don't notice the caffeine high anymore, I only notice when i'm in need of another coffee fix because I get a killer headache. I mostly drink Nespresso both at home and at work. I try and limit to 3 pods per day, usually two in the morning and one in the afternoon around 3pm to help me finish the day strong, or vice-versa. Shoutout for "Arpeggio!"

    I like trying coffee in new ways. I can drink it black, Cuban style, espresso I can drink black. A scoop of good vanilla ice cream, frozen custard or gelato with a shot or two of good espresso is a righteous dessert.

    When I quit Starbucks I felt like I had the flu, and terrible headaches. I had some bad caffeine withdrawal. I did catch up on sleep though. I'm probably at a healthier less than heart attack inducing amount of caffeine these days.

    FTFY. :D

    Straight black, not too strong. By 10 or 11 in the morning I've had enough.

    2-3 cups per day, usually at home. Maybe an espresso at lunch if I'm grabbing a 'sang-which'.
