A Question about Coffee

How much coffee do you drink?  Writers and nonwriters alike can answer—I’m just curious.

I went on a writing retreat with Sara McClung and Cristin Terrill this weekend, and they seem to think I drink a lot!  Which, I know I do . . . but I didn’t really drink that much in front of them, and so now I’m interested to know how much people generally drink.

How many cups a day?  A week?

  1. Daily cups of coffee: 0

    Daily cups of tea: Uh, do I really have to admit that?

    Seriously, though, I’ve never been a coffee drinker, but I recently started drinking hot tea (British style, with milk and sugar). I usually drink a couple cups a day, although sometimes I’ll have as many as five. Especially if I’m writing or it’s really cold outside. There’s just something about having a hot cup of tea at hand while scribbling in a notebook.

  2. I don’t drink coffee; soda is my crutch for caffeine. But I think the only detrimental effect is short term memory loss and a tendency to repeat oneself.

    What was the question?

    Oh, I don’t drink coffee; soda is my crutch for caffeine.

  3. I’m an all or nothing kind of girl when it comes to coffee. I can go weeks without having any, but then I make a 10 cup pot and drink it all.

    Don’t look at me like that. 🙂 I really only drink decaf, except when I get the occasional fancy coffee when I’m out and about. Otherwise, a bit of sugar-free flavored syrup and some milk and I’m good.

    I drink tea too, but usually only one cup at a time – I don’t guzzle it the way I do coffee. 🙂

  4. I used to only drink green tea, and on special occasions, I’d get a latte. But since my son was born, my coffee intake has gone up quite a bit–for me that is. I drink a large cup a day. That may not sound like a lot, but it is for me. And the strength of the coffee keeps going up too. I figure by the times he’s in school, I’ll be up to 5 cups a day.

  5. I drink 2-3 a day. But at home I drink the Folgers 1/2 caffeine brand. It’s not the caffeine I’m addicted to, it’s the taste. :)Probably because I use flavored creamer and make it taste like dessert.

  6. I generally drink 1 mocha every other week. No coffee, unless my connection brings me the good stuff from his parents coffee plantation, then all bets are off.

    I do generally drink two cups of tea a day. I’m trying to cut back. 😉
