Do you like coffee? What kind of coffee do you like? How many cups of coffee do you drink per day? I love americano with milk or orange raff. I drink coffee every day, but not more than two cups a day. I recently found an interesting article https://booksrun.com/blog/7-healthy-reasons-to-drink-coffee/ about the coffee. Did you know that coffee turns out to have a beneficial effect on human health? Coffee is diabetes prevention. Interestingly, in coffee houses like starbucks natural coffee, what do you think?

4 cups, on average - usually just in a press or i'll make myself a latte.

I'd love to believe these articles, but my gut says its Starbucks or some coffee trade association paying for some good press. It's still beats drinking water or tea.

Actually any strong or somewhat strong coffee, Starbucks, Kona Coffee, but with Coconut creme from Nestle. Stuff is so addictive. Oh and about 3-5 cups a day.

I get $100 worth of Peets cards at Costco for $80. Their lattes are decent. When I purchase beans, I try to find Counter Culture Forty Six on sale at Whole Paycheck. Fall back is Dana Street Roasting, a local shop that has decent beans and they have the absolute best ice blended latte. Their prices are lower than all the chains.

I've been a coffee drinker since I started working in '73 & had to work the night shift! Retired now for 10+ years!

I've tried pretty much everything out there, settling on Starbucks SUMATRA single origin whole bean coffee. This is what you want if you like your coffee black & strong, but want it to be smooth! :biggrin:

I grind my beans fresh per cup, use RO - reverse osmosis purified water & a cone paper filter directly into my favorite Aladdin classic 12 oz travel mug.

For an afternoon snack, I have hot cocoa made with freshly brewed double strong coffee! Yummy!

Love the smell of brewing coffee. Hate the taste. Never had a cup of coffee in my life. Anything with coffee flavor I avoid.

I perk a pot every day with a mix of supermarket brand and espresso. Add half & half and a splash of french vanilla.

Yes, probably 3 cups a day for years. Cream and sugar please. I like the starbucks pikes place but love some Chock Full O Nuts just as well. Lately been substituting and really enjoying the cranberry or orange redbulls though for the 2nd and 3rd cups, perhaps due to the heat coming on spring. Cranberry redbull with a lemon squeezed in is one of the best drinks i've had!

..and one more thing: Get the book "Uncommon grounds" Excellent read about everything to do with the commodity of coffee. ie, where the beans are grown,the region that's ideal for coffee trees, how weather affects production, laborers, farm owners etc. And the economics of it all is fascinating, especially the influence of over loading the market or holding back the harvest for speculators. Roasting too is an art that's guarded like fort Knox. Enjoy your brew.
