View Full Version : How much coffee a day?

Just wondering how many cups of coffee does everyone drink a day?

01-29-2008, 06:20 PM
I probably drink two or three mugs of coffee a day. Sometimes more, sometimes less. But definitely at least one cup a day.

I drink a (quite large) mug-- probably the equivalent of a Dunkin Donuts large- in the morning. I used to be a total coffee addict and would easily drink four or five huge mugs per day. However, I still use half and half and that added up to a zillion and a half calories, plus my eyelids were always twitching from the caffeine OD. I'm much less tired when I only have coffee in the morning, but it was really difficult to get to that point, and i still drink a fair amount.

I drink 2 large cups in the morning, then have a latte in the afternoon.

I have probably 3 cups of black coffee a day. *Eye twitches* I should probably cut back. lol ;)

4-6 cups a day...and I love every single cup!

4-8 cups here also. I just gave up those flavored fake creamers for FF half and half and I like it just as much. I wondered if I was drinking so much just for the flavors I was adding!

Oh, I do love my coffee. I have two HUGE mugs a day, but I use skim milk and sweet-n-low instead of my old favorites cream and sugar. The change hasn't made me love my java one iota less!

Oh, I am the coffee queen. On days my hubby isn't home - I WILL drink the whole pot. Usually, three or four large mugs - so about 6-8 cups :D

I usually only pull out coffee on 7 am test days (yes, all our tests during the semester are at 7 am so that we can still meet for lectures on the days of the tests).

But those days I think I finish a whole pot by 9 am. I take it black (have since I was a kid) so I figure it's not too bad. We only have about 2 a week during the thick of the semester.

Just to add some perspective -

None. Never drank it. Never intend to. I do drink decaf green tea sometimes, though.

I don't drink it at all ( well maybe once a month) But the other day I was in the mood for a starbucks latte but then I wondered how many cals must eb in it so I didn't bother!

one cup in the morning, nearly every day.
sometimes another in the afternoon.

I don't drink coffee, can't stand the taste.

I love tea but I since I don't drink caffeine, I only drink herbal or decaffeinated tea.

I drink one mug of pressed coffee in the morning. Depending on which one I grab probably 6 to 8 oz.

01-29-2008, 09:08 PM
prob 5 or 6 cups! *shakes head* I know its bad.

01-29-2008, 09:30 PM
One cup, with a splash of REAL cream

01-29-2008, 10:39 PM
Usually one cup five days a week. (That's right, I need coffee to get through the day at work!)

I drink one large 12 oz. mug of tea every morning, with cream and sugar (190 cals).
I can now only afford one, but used have sometimes 2 or 3 a day which would add up to a LOT!!!!

On the weekends we usually have a Timmy's. before, it was an extra large triple triple. Now, it's a tiny double double :)

I hardly ever have coffee during the week.

5 or 6 cups, 4 or 5 times a week. sometimes i skip it, but mostly i don't.
I add cream, but no sugar.. never really liked the taste of it in coffee.

I have one cup of black coffee with breakfast every day. Maybe a couple times of week I have a cup of coffee in the afternoon.

1.1 liters (thats the size of my Stanley Thermos). I have been trying to cut back, and mix 1/2 reg, 1/2 de-caf. I compensate by drinking almost 100oz of water at work. I gotta have my Hazelnut. And I found a sugar free non-dairy Hazelnut creamer.

I also have to have 1-2 scoops of instant coffee in my protein smoothies.

I love coffee flavored candies. I even found a sugar free international coffee flavors bag.

Am I addicted? Why am I worried about coffee at 12:30 am?

I just purchased a few books on Amazon:

Uncommon Grounds: The History of Coffee and How It Transformed Our World (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0465054676)

The Caffeine Advantage: How to Sharpen Your Mind, Improve Your Physical Performance, and Achieve Your Goals--the Healthy Way (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0743228960)
