    Coffee: Gotta have it or not, poll.

    I have to have at least one large cup of coffee a day. More often than not it’s at a coffee shop.

    What about you, do you brew it yourself or get it at the local coffee shop? I enjoy hanging at a shop relaxing with a Cup-O-Joe and playing on the net.

    Do you have to have it every day or not?

    Feel free to take the poll.

    Not. I will drink a cup once in a while during the colder months. But never in the summer or warmer months. I just don't need it.

    2 cups every morning of a quality dark roast, made on my drip machine set to start 5 minutes before my alarm goes off. My daughter brought home a pound of some good stuff from a roaster local to where she goes to university (Leeds, UK), so I've been enjoying that.

    Sometimes on my way to work, or coming back from a morning dog walk, I'll stop at a coffee shop and get a mocha or a chai latte. If I'm feeling particularly groggy on the way to work I'll get a small thermos of dark roast and drink it at the lab.

    When I'm working from home (like now) I'll make a "faux-cha" which is just heated milk with chocolate syrup and instant espresso.

    One place I really miss coffee is backpacking. No time to make it because we're usually breaking camp super quick to get on the trail for another 10-hour hike, and my cook kit is already put away from the previous night. So while I'm packing up I'll chug a half quart of water with an electrolyte plus caffeine mix. SO dissatisfying… I suppose I could do cold brew but I really don't want to leave anything out with any kind of scent (due to bears).

    Coffee makes me crazy. I'm a naturally wound up guy and adding caffeine makes me anxious. I can't focus on anything then crash & feel strung out. Bigtime green tea drinker though.

    I will admit to an "addiction" because if I just flat out stop drinking it I'll get bad headaches. But the easy remedy is to start mixing in decaf and over time phasing out the caffeinated stuff completely.

    But I just like the taste of coffee.

    Brew my own daily. Coffee maker set to brew at 4:50 am, my first sip is at 5:00 am daily.

    I drink about 5 cups black on weekdays and 8-9 black on weekends. I really like coffee and have certainly been on a daily basis since 1980.

    These days, caffeine is my only vice.

    love the smell of coffee...hate the taste! I start every day off with either a Diet Pepsi or a Lifewater. Don't feel like I ever needed the caffeine to wake up.

    i'm nowhere near close to drinking it daily, but i'd say i drink it more than occasionally. which is why i verbally answered instead of polling.

    There's no such thing as "more than occasionally". You either drink it daily or drink it occasionally.

    Poll Nazi....

    I drink a cup once in a while when it's cold and I have to get up early for an east coast call (French Press). Also when on the boat and we are up for an early departure to get up lake before the crowds get moving. Lake = Cowboy Coffee

    I'd say on average about 20 cups a year.

    French roast, french press, burr grinder. 4 minutes at apx. 200F Half in the mug, half in the thermos. Summer sees the same thing but room temp cold brew overnight. And yes, the thermos travels with me on my bike commutes. Any questions?

    Tried the starbucks instant coffee Via? Not bad. At all. Hot water for oatmeal and coffee. Best, get some of those shelf stable 1/2 oz coffee creamers for both parts of your breakfast. Priorities....

    Regular me... Keurig maker but with my own cups filled with my own dark roast coffee. The coffee varies according to whim. Set to strong and 12 oz. First cup at home around 4 am or sooner depending on cat factor. Next cup about 2 hours after that and that is usually all. On the road I'll get what I can, and often take a little hand expresso machine for those hotels where it's impossible to get anything. Downtown Tucson there's a restaurant called Cafe Desta, Ethiopian, and apart from amazing food, they do a coffee called Mackato which is wonderful...

    Actually I've tried the Vias and they are indeed not bad. I just got away from hot breakfasts & coffee because I was usually the slow guy breaking camp. I really do need to get back to my priorities though, as you say.

    I also have one of these whenever I get back to carrying luxury items:

    Next to beer, coffee is the best thing you can drink. And no, water doesn't count.

    Coffee may help with Alzheimer's and

    Older adults who drank four or more 8-ounce cups of regular coffee daily were half as likely to die of mouth and upper throat cancer. ... A 2009 U.S. study and a 2011 Swedish study both found that older women who drink more than a cup of caffeinated coffee daily have a 20 to 25 percent lower risk of stroke.

    I drink enough coffee that if I get a paper cut I don’t bleed, I leave coffee stains

    No caffeine after 1600 for me though, otherwise I don’t sleep well

    (I couldnt see the poll to answer because I’m on Tapatalk but I’ll check again when I get to a full browser)

    Oops, that reminds me, I need to go set up the coffee maker for the morn.

    I don't drink quite that much, and with a little milk.

    I'm not picky, basic grocery store coffee is all I need.

    He reminds me of a boss I had as a teenager. I worked on an essembly line making phone books. The guy that ran the line looked similar to him and he drank a ton of coffee. A complete jerk when the machines jammed. He'd start shaking like that and throwing a tantrum, phone books flying everywhere.

    question: when you put cream in your coffee (if you do and dont have it black), is it actually cream, or is it milk?
    All the gear and no idea.

    I love coffee, but I don't need it to start the day. I do need it if I take a quick nap during the day (rarely happens).

    I drink one or two double espressos daily. I buy ground cofffee from a local cafe and brew on my DeLonghi EC155.

    In Greece ice coffee is very popular, has been for decades. A freddo espresso is nice to have (before, during or after a good ride).

    I drink a cup every morning while perusing the internet before getting ready to work. Once a week or so the wife and I will go to Starbucks.

    I didn't take the poll because there was no option for "i have a cup every morning but i don't 'have to'".

    I go with milk, just easier to have on hand then cream and now it is what I'm used to. At work I use those little cups that don't need refrigerating, not sure what that stuff is. I try to avoid "non-dairy creamer", really not sure what that stuff is and it leaves a hard crust in the cup.

    I also put it in the cup first, then when I pour the coffee in, it automatically mixes it, no need to waste a spoon or strirrer. Not sure why everyone doesn't do that.

    Didn't get around to setting it up last night and my wife got up and made coffee. But not enough, only got two cups instead of 3.

    This is what I do also.

    I usually use 2% milk but lately I've been using just a small amount of heavy whipping cream since we had a small carton left over from the holidays (was to make pumpkin pie but bought too much).

    But I also like it black, like my bikes.

    I also do it this way. You ask why everyone doesn't do this. Because Americans are a wasteful non thinking bunch. Just think of how many trees spared per year if everyone did this. No need for stirring sticks. I also just use milk instead of cream. If cream is available I'll use that.

    We have 4 coffee makers now: traditional drip (Ninja), press pot, pour-over, and a camping percolator type. Weekends mornings are for good coffee and the news, preferably outside in the nice weather.

    Is this a 30 Day Coffee-Free Challenge thread?

    Opt out, thanks. No vices, except for coffee. Too good to stop now.

    Do you have to have it every day or not?

    I used to wait until I got to the office to drink a cup or two, I like the taste of coffee.. black. After kid 2 was born I started actually needing coffee and make a cup for my drive into work at 4:45am.

    DJ - Since you seem to use your iPad at tables a lot you should check out a case that has a Bluetooth keyboard attached to it. My wife got me a new iPad for Christmas and got me a case with a keyboard and it makes typing a lot easier for emails, online forms etc. Mine is a Logitech that she found on sale for $50 from $100.

    Yeah, I've been concidering that route. Of course I was concidering that route with my previous iPad as well. So it's been a thought for 5 years. Logitech is the one I looked at, pretty sweet setup.

    When I was younger, it was unnecessary, non-habitual and something done with the friends. Now, I can't turn it down but drink it down instead. Iced or hot, but never room temperature.
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    Two cups Folgers Instant, black, every day, unless I forget to get the second cup out of the microwave. In that case, I drink it the next day. I need the first cup to begin normal functions, and the second cup to remember who I am, what I'm doing, etc. Which is why I sometimes find the second cup in the microwave, the next day. And FYI, the next day it's just as good at room temperature. And yes, I only own one cup, so that's why I wander around looking for it the next day, and finally find it in the microwave.

    No matter what I have planned for the day the first thing I do is have a large cup of home brewed coffee! If I have no plans I will drink the whole pot! If were in party mode it might even get a little bailys added to it!

    Every morning I get up and make instant coffee and I drink it so I have the energy to make real coffee.

    I put instant coffee in a microwave oven and almost went back in time.

    Yes, drink coffee. Every day is a safe statement.
    I over do it often but it's free and I get bored at work.
    The real enjoyment is a good cup, for me that's fairly strong or bold and the very occasional Starbucks, a good restaurant and mostly our own K-cup machine.
    We love it and nothing ever in my history ever gets/got more use.
    I get a few varieties and usually shop to get them around 30-38 cents unit cost. Sometimes less.

    Starbucks isn't a regular thing for us but a treat or a stop if we are getting on the road for a bit of a trip. I know it's costlier but we just don't think of it that often and it is good coffee. I don't begrudge the price. When there I get the café au lait . Nothing fancy for me. Grande size is good 'nuff.

    I'm not a coffee shop hang out person but it would be a fine place to have a small meeting or a meet up with others, killing time or ? Also, if meeting up to go onto other destinations, done that before.

    Wondered that myself. I've never consciously abstained from coffee to try that test but just now thinking I was "out of it" last week (kind of ill) for a 5 day streak with a fever body aches, chills etc... and I'm sure I went without coffee for 3 - 4 days at the least.
    No effects that I know of.

    Exactly! I've tried many, many times to explain this.

    Maybe I should have just posted the video instead...
