I had a "thing" Jan and Feb.  part of it was that I couldn't sleep.   I quit coffee cold turkey.  I cut out anything that resembled caffeine.  chocolate, some teas etc.  

 

once all that BS was mitigated.  I slowly started up.  dang it if that first cup after a two month coffee-ban wasn't a total elixir of luxury.  it was so delicious!  now, I am one cup.  maybe a half cup "reheat".  but that is it.

 

my office has a hot pot going all day long.  I dont visit it ever and stopped contributing to the coffee fund altogether.  

 

you?  how much?

Working life (nights), I'd guess 6 or so. 

Retired life,  2 before noon. If I have one later it screws up sleeping.

Never drank a single cup of coffee until retirement.

Now I drink a half cup each morning, that's it.

I can't even drink a coke in the evening or will be up all night.?

I have had exactly one cup of coffee in my life....exchange student got me an iced coffee...I had to drink it...ick.

 

Used to drink caffeinated soda like it was water as a youngster and in to high school. Noticed the high's and low's...so swapped out to caffeine free...then quit soda/pop all together in college.

 

About all I drink is water with the occasional adult beverage maybe once a month.

 

I'm a morning person and generally up and going before sunrise.

you my friend are a badass.  coffee is more social for me.  talking with my wife with a hot mug, or friends and coworkers.  well, that is how it started.

 

now I can't seem to commute to work without my travel cup.

My wife thinks I'm a weirdo / crazy for not drinking coffee...but my reply to her is always:

 

"I may be crazy...but I've been like this all my life....you choose to be with me...who is really the crazy one"  

 

HA!

Easy to spot the problem here. Iced coffee is NOT coffee 

 

one cup a day first thing in the morning. I’ve had a second cup midday a few times and was entirely too hyper

I average about a pot a day - that's 12 of the 'mini' cups they measure it by, but only 4 of my mugs worth.

All day long 

When it’s 90 deg and everyone grabs a beer or soda I’ll have a cup. 
Caffeine never bothered me.
I’ll have an expresso, or French press late in the evening and sleep all night.

I drink about 3-4 cups (about 8 ounces each) every morning.  When I'm out and about, fishing, hunting, etc, I have a Yeti travel mug that holds 30 ounces.  Rarely do I drink any after lunch time.  Straight black in french roast.  Like liquid tar.  No sugar, cream, sweeteners, flavors, etc.

 

Growing up, my Mother always had coffee on (still does), so naturally it was pretty much always available.  I hated it when I was younger.  Thought it tasted like mud.  Since about age 16, I've had it pretty much every day of my life.

 

People that don't drink coffee are weird.  My Mother in Law won't touch it.  She's weird, even though I married her daughter.

Down to ten cups per day

But it's not really 10 cups... like @MN Fisherdescribes I put water in the maker to the 10-cup line, but I use big mugs, so I really only have about 4 or 5 a day.   Nothing fancy, seven scoops of Folgers or Maxwell House, whichever is on sale....often one of those scoops will be vanilla flavor Folgers.  No milk, cream, sugar or anything else

I put 16 oz of water into my 4 cup coffee maker every morning and that’s is normally all the coffee I drink all day.

Ahhhh, the “nectar of the gods” as I enjoy a cup of Peets while I type my reply.  I’ve been drinking coffee daily since I was 12 when I’d get up at 0500 and start folding my papers before peddling off and begin my paper route. Later, it was just part of the work culture no matter the job. Now it seems energy drinks are preferred by some people instead of coffee.

My Mother drinks it all day long too.  She'll fire up a pot right after dinner to drink in the evening.

I didn't drink coffee until about 6 months ago. Some weeks its maybe 2 cups a week some weeks its 2 cups a day 4 or 5 days. Then I will have a time where I realize I haven't had any or any caffeine at all for that matter in like 2-3 weeks. Real spotty with me.
