How Many Cups Of Coffee Per Day?

Mon Nov 29, 2004 10:24 pm

Considering I have trouble sleeping, I think I might drink too much coffee.

When at work, I usually dring a half full Starbucks Mug twice a day, plus usually a cup of tea right after lunch.

I honestly think it is too much, but I need it to keep the day running...

So, let's now make the Anette coffee survey : what about you guys (and gals of course)

At least 3: one at home in the morning, one after getting to work and one in the afternoon.

Some days it's more. Add Diet Coke to the list (especially if I'm having a drink or 3). That's the reason I yawn all day - can't sleep at night!

Depends if I have plans for the evening or not.
It usually is two mugs a day; breakfast and after lunch.

Well, if I have someone to sleep with, I would sleep even less.

However, if that makes you sleepy, you might have a deeper problem !!!

It's strange, but I can't actually fall asleep properly when someone's in the bed with me. I've so far not been in a serious enough long-term relationship that it would be a problem, but it is something I need to work on.

I'm trying to get in as much practice as possible though!

I don't drink much coffee anymore but somehow I became Red Bull addicted (contains also much caffeine), currently I have a coffee and a croissant though because a croissant with Red Bull would be a little bit disgusting.

2 large cups in the morning before school/whatever. Then another cup in the afternoon. Could be a few more if I am studying a lot in the evening/night.

I try not to drink coffee, it stains you teeth. I got some caffeine pills. 200mg of caffeine, just like a cup of coffee.

Four to eight cups of tea a day. None of that herbal crap either! Good Canadian orange pekoe for me.

If I don't have a cup of tea by about 10:30, I start getting the wickedest headache. Hello, addiction!

I typically drink coffee only on my off days, and I usually drink 2-3 cups in the morning. Occassionally, I might drink a cup or two during the week.

Now perhaps the best thing to do is to set a time everyday in whinch you quit drinking anything with caffeine in it. Get some caffeine free colas and tea, that way you can still enjoy drinking those drinks, only without having to worry about the effects of caffeine.I started doing this because I started having trouble sleeping because I was drinking colas before going to bed and then having trouble getting to sleep (I used to not have this problem up until about 2 years ago, I could drink 2 or 3 cups of coffee right before bed and it not bother me at all.). I stop drinking caffeinated drinks between 5-6 pm, and I very rarely have trouble getting to sleep at night, and by that point, it's been over 6 hours since my last caffeinated drink.

5 to 8 cups a day.

Usually 3-4 in the AM and the balance in the PM.

Headaches are the norm for me if I do not get my quota.

Do they have a caffeine patch?  Smile

And yes Timmies is the best. Usually double double...sometimes 3 cream if I feel a late coming on ...  Smile  Smile

Waaay too many, but that's ok.

On mornings when I have to be at work early, I wake up to a fresh pot of coffee finishing up. This morning was Starbucks Arabian Mocha Java. I have part of a cup while getting ready for work, then top that off and enjoy a cup on the road to work.

Then when I get to work I have a cup of whatever's brewing that day, sometimes with a little ice to cool it down, but always black. Then another cup around mid morning. Then one after lunch, then I usually take one for the drive home but I don't always finish it. Sometimes after dinner I'll go out for a cup of coffee and read.

So thats 6 or 7 a day. Could be worse, there's other addictions.

Coffee doesn't do ANYTHING to me. I can drink a triple espresso and go straight to bed. That's why I never understood why people need a kick from coffee to start the day, I have no idea what caffein can do to your system because I've never experienced the 'kick'. I drink coffee because I like the taste. Nothing more. Can't say that I'm immune to caffeine, because I've never had an overdose of it either.

Anyone else with no response coffee? Nobody that I know of is.

KEno: I just can't function before my second coffee of the morning... Just the first one at home doesn't help much - I'm still asleep when I get to work. It's a wonder I haven't crashed my car yet!

15-20 16oz mugs a day, plus a couple of 22oz cups from time to time when driving on the weekends. Basically, I'm never without a cup of coffee close by. I rarely drink soft drinks - just coffee, water, orange or apple juice, vodka & tequila (both kept in the freezer and drunk straight up).

One café solo in the morning and one in the evening will do fine for me...

café solo = espresso, but stronger

Well, most things anyway... Things like doing crack and murder you can safely leave out, I guess. Coffee's relatively harmless, so that's not a bad choice to start the catching up with!

2 strong mugs with breakfast
another 2 or three before noon
a double espresso (or Lebanese) after lunch (even when no lunch)
three or four mugs during the afternoon
a double espresso (or Lebanese) after dinner
a mug before going to sleep [no coffee = invariably no sleep]

Never any Cola and the likes

On a good day only 4 or 5 now. We have a low-end espresso maker that you just dump beans in the hopper, distilled water in the tank, and when you want a cuppa you just put the cup under and push one button. Makes regular etc. Best yet is Colombian beans from Graffeo.

And as for decaf

I don't know what my record total was, only that it was 13+ cups of regular in one sitting. I was working for a tourist railroad at the time and after a long workday, a couple of train and engine crews decided to meet at the local Cracker Barrel for dinner. We got to talking and carrying on that time flew by and the coffee went down like water. We were so wired that the restaurant crew had to throw us out at closing time. On a regular day, one or two at most.
