    Lately Kona blend seems to be doing nicely, no sugar no cream...

    Unpolluted is the only way to drink coffee!

    Haven't seen you for quite some time. Welcome back.

    I used to be on 10 cups a day but have cut down a lot, on about 3-4 now

    Thanks for the info, Ms Ducky!!! Funny that I can handle black tea, but can't handle the green... Maybe the chai varieties that I drink have very little black tea in them???

    Tec, can you drink chai tea?? How about herbal teas???

    I brew a pot of coffee up to the 8 cup level and drink it daily. Not sure how many ounces that is. I love Kenya AA, Hawaiian Peaberry, Kona. This is my big splurge. I also like my coffee piping hot with lots and lots of real cream in it, I'm no purist.

    Oh, I love coffee, I mean like LOVE coffee. I like coffee ice cream, coffee everything.

    I've never tried chai tea. Think I'll pick some up tomorrow to give it a shot. But I don't like most herbal teas, so I rarely drink them. I don't remember them affecting me one way or the other on the times that I have.

    Time to do some experimenting, I think :)


    PS - Thank you, MsDucky

    Whenever I drink coffee, I start shaking or trembling. I have solved that issue by mixing it with powdered milk, chocolate and artificial sweetners to make mocha.

    You're welcome Ziddina and Tec. I found this online while looking up info on tea and theophylline. It seems like it fit the thread.

    I can drink two cups of coffee and than go to sleep. Everyone seems to think it wakes them up but not me I like the taste

    My husband and I split a 12 cup pot in the morning. I like a good dose of half in half in mine, no sugar. We buy Starbucks beans at Sam's so it's ground fresh every morning. I cannot drink coffee later, it makes me sick.

    A funny story: in 2005 when the first hurricane shut down the power across central Florida, a local 7/11 had emergency power. People waited in line for over an hour just to get one cup of coffee. (There were 4 pots going at once, and each person was limited to one cup.) Best coffee we ever had! When the next hurricane hit I made iced coffee the night before, not the same but it saved us from withdrawal symptoms.
