    This Is A Failed Attempt At The Longest Subtitle In The Yeshiva World Coffee Room. However, as the old adage goes, "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again".

    Imagine a world without tea!

    No more "Tea or Coffee?"

    No more Tea breaks!

    No more tea time......

    The world would be sleeping. Shachris without minyonim.

    Actually I think after a few days everyone would adjust and get used to not drinking coffee. coffee is a stimulant that we got used to. We didnt always drink it and we don't have to drink it daily if we choose not to. By the way not everyone drinks coffee (or tea or any form of caffeine).

    Actually, I don't like coffee and I don't drink coffee. I survive quite well, B"H. (For the record, I don't drink hot tea either.)

    When I was a bochur in yeshiva, someone once said over in the name of Rabbi Avigdor Miller zt"l that he felt people rely too much on their daily coffee and it can be detrimental (note what happens by a fast day to coffee addicts). He said before davening he would drink a cup of cold refreshing water instead, y'know just to get the 'ol body going, and that was good enough. I decided then and there to do the same. I always drink water before running out to shacharis. I only drink coffee occasionally.

    I cant stand Coffee, but if you like it Gezah D'Heh.

    There is no Halacha that says you have to eat bread and water. Eat and drink what you like and if a Shot of Johnny Walker gets you up in the morning . Enjoy it

    Coffee is a new invention. They've only had it for the last few centuries. The world got along fine without it before that. While most American goyim can only imagine time in years or at most decades, our perspectives are in centuries or millenia (note how we call the Amidah the "18" even though it has been "19" for for over 1500 years).

    many בתי מדרשים would save money on the coffee, sugar, milk. they would have a spare room. People may have no excuse to be late for davening, some people would not find a replacement when they would catch up on the "Yach".
    As an avid coffee drinker, I wouldnt miss my daily doses of caffiene, but I would use less Paracetamol on days when I couldnt have it!

    Ironically, redundant subtitles can be redundantly ironic.

    Apukerma: While coffee wasn't drunk until the last couple of centuries, it hasn't been as necessary as it is nowadays. A couple of centuries ago , the light bulb was invented. We now go to sleep much later and work many more hours.

    Caffeine pills do NOT make it for me. I love the taste of a really good cup of coffee. It's like a symphony of flavor.

    Of course it's a new invention. Before that was an era known as the dark ages. For a reason.

    However enlightenment preceded the invention of the lightbulb by a few centuries.

    Excellent analogy oomis! And I like to drink that symphony while listening to a classical symphony, especially as I watch the sun rise. Cheesy, but true :-)

  20. MediumThinker: The caffeine for caffeine pills is extracted from coffee. How do you think we ended up with decaff? World without coffee would be a world without, or at least with many, many less caffeine pills!

    Our company ran out of coffee this morning and it was, to say the least, absolute pandemonium and chaos, you'd think it was the beginning of an Apocalypts or Apocolytis (however you spell that word).
    Anyhow it reminded me of this thread, lol.

    Ditto. But I do like some brands of coffee/tea and some flavors, but I could go years without it and do.

    I love the taste of coffee, and B'H don't have any withdrawal symptoms whatsoever on a Tzom when I cannot consume coffee.

    BTW I won't go anywhere near near tea of any description. I thinks tea tastes & smells awful.

    What about caffeine in sodas? It is extracted from coffee and sold to the soda and energy drink companies. That's why companies LOVE to sell decaf coffee. They make crazy profits by selling each part separately.

    On a side note, I heard that caffeine poses a problem on Pesach, because most caffeine is extracted from coffee using an alcohol process.

    After seeing those addicted to coffee, I get a negativity towards the "coffee"

    Nah.. It's not our problem. It's the other people, who are addicted to not drinking coffee.

    I don't know where this is from...

    If you can start the day without caffeine or pep pills,
    If you can be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,
    If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,
    If you can eat the same food everyday and be grateful for it,
    If you can understand when loved ones are too busy to give you time,
    If you can overlook when people take things out on you when, through no fault of yours, something goes wrong,
    If you can take criticism and blame without resentment,
    If you can face the world without lies and deceit,
    If you can conquer tension without medical help,
    If you can relax without liquor,
    If you can sleep without the aid of sleeping pills,

    Then you are probably the family dog.

    I agree with zahavasdad I don't care for the taste of coffee either. Fortunately Hashem created other plants for energy. Green, Black and White Teas for starters. Ginseng, Guarana, Yerba Mate, Rooisbos and numerous other choices.

    I would love a world without coffee! It would mean I can breathe again! No offense to those who like the smell of coffee, but I don't. I kinda feel bad for people who can't survive without their morning joe, but then again, I'm similarly addicted to sugar, so I can't say anything.
