how many cups of coffee do you drink?! - Page 2

post #21 of 40

Usually two cups a day.  I pretty much always have one in the morning and sometimes have one in the afternoon (right around when my kids get off school).

 

Now that I have a Keurig coffee maker it's so tempting to drink it more often b/c it's so easy.  I actually didn't start drinking a cup in the afternoon until I bought it, though I often had a cup of tea then, which I don't now.

I don't drink coffee but I did tea pretty much all day everyday. I could easily drink 8 cups a day.

2-3 large cups in the a.m. They're filled with ice cream too... I discovered that putting chocolate ice cream in your coffee makes it like a mocha! It's like adding cream and sugar... and chocolate... mmmmmmm...

 

Then often I will get a cappuccino or mocha in the afternoon while out & about.

I don't drink coffee. I do have this powdered cappuccino mix that I usually drink a cup of during the winter. Mostly I drink diet sodas, a 2 liter a day.

I have recently gotten down from 6 cups to 4.  Trying to get back to 3 which is *one* big cup.  6 just seems a bit excessive for me.

 

I only drink it first thing in the morning.  The rest of the day I drink water or caffeine-free tea.

What size cups are we talking here, ladies!?  lol.gif

 

I actually got my little food scale out and measured ounces, b/c i'm pg and trying to watch my intake.  So I drink roughly 2 cups with 4 oz of coffee itself a day.  If I want/need more than that by 3-4 pm, I'll make a pot of half caff and have another 4 oz cup.

Ditto for me on that whole post.  I need my coffee just to get through the day.  I'm trying to cut down on 2 or so cups and substituting with tea but still for the average day it's caffix.gif

I have been TRYING to cut down but I usually drink an average of 2-6 in a day.... shy.gif  I guess that's better than 12 , lol! but still tooo much.

Exactly zero. shy.gif But I just have never liked the taste of coffee. Now green tea and iced tea I will drink. I drink probably 3 caffinated drinks a day between the two kinds of tea.

Zero. I like coffee a lot, but I'm too sensitive to caffeine so no coffee or tea for me. Just herbal teas.

I'm sure it would help me a lot in the mornings, I have SO much trouble getting the kids and I up and out of the house early.

I don't drink coffee, its actually against my religion (no not kidding). I try not to drink any caffeine but I will have a Dr. Pepper if I have a really extreme migraine and nothing else will work to calm it down. Usually it only happens a couple times a month, I'm prone to stress migraines.

I love love looooooooooooove coffee and can't imagine life without it.  I'd say my average is 3-4 cups a day.  thumb.gif

between 1/2 a pot to a pot a day.  That's about 4 cups.  Sometimes it's tempting to make another pot!

post #34 of 40



yum!  I've had coffee with vanilla ice cream, def going to try it with chocolate. 

 

I drink 1/2 to 1 cup of coffee in the a.m. and just switched to decaf.  I actually have more energy now b/c I am not sufferring from afternoon caffiene withdrawal!

 

I will occasionally (once every week or two) have a caffeinated drink in the afternoon-like an iced chai tea today while out and about :)

I adore coffee, I don't care if it's decaf or high test. With splenda and heavy whipping cream, it's the only indulgence I can look forward to every day. It's always been 2 mug sized cups, but as a new SAHP it has crept up to 3, and I find myself wanting another as of late eyesroll.gif

I'm allergic to coffee so I drink herbal tea I drink about 6 cups a day.

post #37 of 40

Maybe one cup per week :) I gave up drinking coffee regularly, few years ago!

post #38 of 40

Make a full pot in the morning. DH takes one to work, I drink the rest throughout the day.  But if a friend comes by on goes another pot!  As soon as they see me coming at playgroup, the grinder revs up.  I cut way way back during pregnancies and nursing, but once I weaned the littlest-- watch out!

post #39 of 40

I drink a travel mug on my way to work, and usually have a second one around 10:30 at work. No caffeine after noon or I can't sleep that night.

post #40 of 40

I'm new and was browsing the forums when I saw this post.  

 

I love my coffee!  I drink, on average, a pot a day.  My coffee maker makes 12 cups.  If I am home alone, I drink it myself.  If dh is here we go through another pot.  I'm up at 5:30 every day and not in bed till after 11pm.  My coffee keeps me going!
