On any given day, how much in ounces do you consume? I love the taste and the effects of coffee. I am probably around 24-32oz or 3-4 standard sized cups myself ...

Too much. I don't know how many ounces are in a pot, but usually it's about a pot just for myself. I like three mugs in the morning while checking email, then I can wake up.

A lot. I drank a pot today by myself. Of course I started this morning at about 7.30 and just had my last cup at 2.30. So that may not be too bad.

I drink maybe 12 oz (max) about twice a week. I've only found one or two coffees that I really like; most leave a gross taste in my mouth after I've finished them. I'm a black tea person, the stronger the better, and that is definitely my preferred morning beverage.

I start my day with 2 canned doubleshot's, chase that with a big cup o black. Now, as the weather cools more and more my taste for hot drinks will heighten.

On the coldest of days I find that I don;t stop drinking coffee until I get a caffeine headache.

I only drink home-brewed coffee that I grind myself. Everything else tastes like crap.

I generally have a cup a day. Any more and I'll be overly shaky or starving to death by 10 AM.

Maybe 3 cups a year. Just never got into it. I even have a small coffee company a couple miles down the road.

So much, it's criminal. I'm a f*ckin freak about it. I get locally roasted gourmet sh*t, keep it in foodsaver containers in the fridge, and grind it just before brewing. On weekends, I french-press, on weekdays I drip. I'll sometimes throw some espresso in there for a "redeye", or just a shot on its own, or an americano. I love it all.

In all, I'd say I drink a total of about 4-6 cups a day on a normal day. I think my trusty travel mug holds 3.5 cups, and I have another cup with breakfast. Sometimes I'll have some in the late afternoon too. It's my addiction, and I loves it.

I am at about 5-6 cups a day, I make mine at work in a Kuerig machine on a 6 oz setting. It is a nice mix between a coffee and an espresso.

I used to drink quite a bit of coffee. Then I got a small coffee pot for my office, and it was downhill from there. I was making about 2 or 3 small pots during the day. Eventually I started always having a sour stomach. So I stopped drinking it altogether, and the sour stomach left. I switched over to Tea and mostly drink that, although I will have maybe 3 or 4 cups a week nowadays.

Brew what you like. Do this, and you will find your inner brewer.
