32oz a day, fresh ground half calf blend put through my conical grinder. I have been lazy and using the gravity fed pot for awhile, but I usually use a manual drip maker heating the water to exactly 192*F. Yes, I am a coffee snob, it carries over well into my other hobby, whatever that is.

Coffee must be dark black and thick - of the truckstop variety - and then I'm happy. I drink a cup at home and fill up a mug that holds probably 2 cups at work. That keeps me going till lunch.

I don't like drinking coffee after noon though. I switch to sweet tea at lunch and supper.

None for me.

I can't stand mocha anything - ice cream, desserts, drinks... blech!

I've had a couple coffee stouts that were ok. I do love a good stout that has those coffee-like flavors from the roasted malts. Go figure.

I hate coffee. yuck. I can't stand the taste, and that much caffeine will have me climbing the walls all day. I rarely even drink caffeinated soda. I'm hyper enough as it is.

I'd say I have about 16 oz / day on average. Mostly Dunkin Donuts coffee during the week b/c it's near my office. Weekends I tend to brew my own.

1 big cup if when I'm home: conical grinder, french press. I use a teapot to heat the water so I'm probably above the recommended water temp of 192-202.

When I'm out and about it's one or two double espressos.
Hey, knock that shvt off. We're drinkin' here.

If I don't have my hand in a cow or on a dog, it is usually holding a coffee mug... Caffine is the only way I function by the end of a week.

I usually have two to four shots of espresso and a 16oz mocha every weekday.
One could do worse than be a swinger of birches.

Anywhere from 1 cup to an entire pot. Depends on how many tests I have and how many hours they keep me in the classroom where I can't study.
