I’m at about 4 cups a day, love my keurig i usually start the day with a newmans own extra bold.March 6, 2013 10:18 pm at 10:18 pm #938634
4-5 cups a day. Used to be about 10 or so 😉March 6, 2013 10:40 pm at 10:40 pm #938635WIYMember
I hope you are joking about 10 and even 4-5 is very unhealthy. Cut down man.March 6, 2013 10:44 pm at 10:44 pm #938636
I kid you not. I have between 4-5 a day. And yes, a number of years ago it was about 10. So I made some progress there….March 6, 2013 11:58 pm at 11:58 pm #938637squeakParticipant
i like coffee better than any liquid. if i could i would only drink coffee and no water. i like smoke better than air. if i could i would breathe only smoke and no air.March 7, 2013 12:44 am at 12:44 am #938638

I don’t think coffee has any effect on me anymore. I think it just keeps the coffee levels of my blood stable.March 7, 2013 1:28 am at 1:28 am #938640SecularFrummyMember
The coffee room is all the coffee I can handle. I stick with the caffeine pills.March 7, 2013 1:39 am at 1:39 am #938641
Same here, coffee no longer has an effect on me. I usually just drink it for the taste.March 7, 2013 6:49 am at 6:49 am #938642SaysMeMember
i’ve seen many coffee addicts break their addiction. It is possible!! And you won’t be a wreck every taanis. I also know a current caffeine addict. As in i’d guess 15 cups a day. UghMarch 8, 2013 12:01 am at 12:01 am #938643Torah613TorahParticipant
Never drink coffee. Can’t stand the stuff, or caffeine in general for that matter.March 8, 2013 2:26 am at 2:26 am #938645
Get out. Jk…don’t worry, we’ll rub off on you soon enough! 😉March 8, 2013 2:40 am at 2:40 am #938646yehudayonaParticipant
I knew a guy who told me he drank 20-25 cups a day. He was a physician.March 8, 2013 2:59 am at 2:59 am #938647
Decaf?March 8, 2013 3:26 am at 3:26 am #938648
Decaf is not considered coffeeMarch 8, 2013 3:28 am at 3:28 am #938649rebdonielMember
I need to start drinking a few cups of coffee throughout the day- good for nerves and for keeping weight under control.March 8, 2013 6:16 pm at 6:16 pm #938650
Well I sure hope he isn’t drinking 20 cups with caffeine! Ask your doctor how unhealthy that is!March 8, 2013 6:40 pm at 6:40 pm #938651squeakParticipant
Joseph, please link to jfems coffee comments to show this torah person what happens by hanging out here.March 8, 2013 6:48 pm at 6:48 pm #938652
Ahem, this is a very important meeting. BOT, dude.March 8, 2013 7:04 pm at 7:04 pm #938653
Regular coffee is a lot healthier than decaf. The decaf coffee goes through a lot of processing.
There’s nothing really unhealthy with regular coffee.March 8, 2013 7:53 pm at 7:53 pm #938654
+1March 10, 2013 12:56 am at 12:56 am #938655
I don’t 20 cups of anything is healthy!
And just for the record, everyone says coffee stunts your growth but as a kid I had coffee every morning and I’m quite tall!March 10, 2013 6:25 am at 6:25 am #938656
So the only complaint that you’re aware of with coffee is that it stunts your growth. And you yourself defied that. Right? No doctor will tell you that coffee is unhealthy.
Coffee for kids is another story. I personally would never give coffee to kids (I don’t really know why, I just wouldn’t) probably because it will make them irritable.
For adults though, it’s great.March 10, 2013 6:53 am at 6:53 am #938657
ditto on that one, fkellyMarch 10, 2013 7:07 am at 7:07 am #938658
So then why is it unhealthy for adults after they stopped growing?March 10, 2013 3:44 pm at 3:44 pm #938659
I drink about four or five (large) cups of brewed coffee per day, plus the occasional decaf.
The question is, does anyone know of an inexpensive ground roast which tastes good? I’ve splurged on Gevalia, but I’d like to economize. Folgers Gourmet was horrible; I imagine the regular is worse. I tried the Kirkland Signature World Blend – I returned it. Chock Full O’ Nuts is not bad, but does anyone know of something better?March 10, 2013 6:03 pm at 6:03 pm #938660
Maybe Taster’s Choice French Roast. (brown container. not red)March 10, 2013 7:24 pm at 7:24 pm #938661
The Taster’s Choice French Roast in particular tastes a lot like brewed coffee. IMHO the Folgers, all of them are awful. It’s almost as bad as drinking dirty water.
Did you try Maxwell House? There’s also Starbucks, you know.March 11, 2013 12:25 am at 12:25 am #938662
Wait a second! I didnt say that was the only unhealthy thing about coffee! I was just saying that even though people say it stunts growth… But think about it- do you honestly think its not unhealthy to drink 20 cups of caffeine a day?March 11, 2013 4:10 am at 4:10 am #938663
I don’t think I drink 20 cups of caffeine in a day. I also don’t think it’s terribly unhealthy, or simply unhealthy for that matter. I am only aware of 2 problems with coffee. One is not even applicable to adults. I will list them for your reference:
1) It is said to stunt growth (in children)
2) It’s a bladder irritant. (When consumed in large amounts)
The above issues are not very problematic health-wise.March 11, 2013 4:16 am at 4:16 am #938664
To fkelly and all other folks that don’t appreciate a good Cup O’ Joe:
This thread is for people who enjoy drinking coffee. If you don’t find yourself to be in this particular group, feel free to open your own support group on a different thread.
We think that coffee improves our quality of life. We also like the taste of it. We very much appreciate the fact that it perks us up and helps us to get through the day.
So, please be so kind and let us enjoy it without having to think too much about it.
Thanking you kindly,

Oh, I’m humbled.
Thank you shnitzy. LolMarch 11, 2013 2:12 pm at 2:12 pm #938667
Sharp, I’m not talking instant. on another thread, I opined that Starbucks Via is the best, and TCFR is second.
I’m referring to brewable ground coffee. No, I haven’t tried Maxwell House (do they make non-instant?). If I do, do i get a free Haggadah?March 11, 2013 4:30 pm at 4:30 pm #938668
DaasYochid, Maxwell House makes brew-able ground coffee. Give it shot.
As far as a free Haggadah goes, I regret to inform you that I’m not handing out any. But I do give free coffee for the asking. And you definitely qualify for a free pot of the coffee of your choice.
So experiment and let me know which coffee to prepare for you.March 12, 2013 3:41 am at 3:41 am #938669
I was COMPLETELY serious. You are now authorized to compose such a beautiful masterpiece the next time we get intruders. Your subtitle should reflect this honor. Not sure why it doesn’t.
Hey!Me too!! Too bad about those free Haggados though, would’ve broken my record of “more haggados than I can ever count”.March 12, 2013 3:43 am at 3:43 am #938670
Shnitzy, I need coffee noooooww!! Saw the invasion?March 12, 2013 3:51 am at 3:51 am #938671
I will bl”n try the Maxwell House, after I finish my awful Folgers. If I remember, I’ll let you know how it is. It’ll be some time after Pesach (since I won’t get the Haggadah anyway) 🙁 .March 12, 2013 3:58 am at 3:58 am #938672
DaasYochid: Are you seriously planning on finishing your Folgers? Well then, after Folgers anything is delightful.
But seriously, Maxwell House is a lot better.
You will get a pot of coffee though, so don’t stress the Haggadah 😉March 12, 2013 4:27 am at 4:27 am #938673
All right. Come on troops! All at once then! (With mug of coffee in hand)March 12, 2013 9:08 pm at 9:08 pm #938674
Sharp- I am a recovered coffee addict 😉March 13, 2013 2:26 am at 2:26 am #938675
Are you happier now?March 13, 2013 10:11 pm at 10:11 pm #938676
Hmm… I think we’ll take that as a no.March 13, 2013 10:23 pm at 10:23 pm #938677
No Im not, I miss my coffee 🙁March 13, 2013 11:56 pm at 11:56 pm #938678
Told you so. 😛March 14, 2013 12:15 am at 12:15 am #938679
🙂 well I stopped because it gave me stomach problems… But I do occasionally have and caffeine doesnt do anything for me anymore.March 14, 2013 4:40 am at 4:40 am #938680
