Coffee or caffeine pills?

I never enjoyed the taste of coffee, matter of fact i hate coffee. I love the smell but cant stand the taste, how does that work? Tea never appealed to me and i never drink soda so caffeine never saw my system until i discovered caffeine supplements. Ive been hooked ever since (pun intended).

You're doing it wrong.

Coffee is the way to start the day. Bad coffee is, well, just bad.

Caffeine pills. 200mg per pill, one in the morning is enough to keep me going for almost all day.

Right? I didnt like the taste of beer or scotch the first time either, but then I stopped being a pussy and learned to appreciate it.

A good cup of coffee on a frigid morning, maybe over the campfire. Man, there's literally almost nothing better.

OP, there's so many different roasts and flavor profiles. There's certainly a cup of coffee out there you'd like. You just gotta find it.

I'm reminded of the time our automatic "coffee robot" at work malfunctioned and stopped pulling shots. One of our employees commented that her mocha that morning was "Like, totally, legit, the most epic cup of coffee ever." yeah sweetheart, that's because you just had a hot chocolate. The coffee dispenser is plugged.

Coffee or tea to start, coffee or tea throughout the day. I prefer real, loose leaf tea, but have to settle for coffee sometimes. Energy drinks too... I've cut down on the energy drinks post-college, but I still like them.

Yes I drink coffee and I do so because it's delicious. If you put enough cream and sugar in the fucker I don't see how anyone could not like it. Black is a different story.

That being said do you really need coffee to get through the day? I mean... I can't say I have tried not drinking coffee, because I enjoy it as part of my breakfast. However on the rare occasion I have to get up and do something quickly that day and for some reason don't have time to drink coffee... I don't ever recall feeling like I can't get through the day.

Maybe you need better sleep and not coffee or caffeine pills or whatever?

I drink a ton of coffee. Not necessarily because of the caffeine, but because I love coffee. In the evenings I’ll switch to decaf just so i can enjoy the taste.

Oh and I drink it black. No adding of cream or sugar. It’s perfect as is.

Coffee at least 3x per day. I don't do it for the caffeine anymore than I drink to get drunk. I do it for the flavor. I love a good, strong, but smooth coffee and/or whiskey.

Yes, because it is part of my morning routine. Also, I feel lifeless without having a cup of it.

I drink coffee with a skimmed fat free milk , two spoons of sugar , two spoons of coffee ground ,stir until everything dissolves .I add a few drops of rose water as well . The last one might sound strange but it can thrive its smoothness
I don't like Americano thing and dislike Nescafe either .

I know I’m generalising here but the “coffee” you guys drink is absolute shite. We are very spoilt down here for I know.

Have one weak cup of instant coffee a day late morning, before and after it's mainly green and mint tea to cut down on teeth staining.

percolator brewed Lavazza Crema E’Gusto every single morning, and more than one. Or at least a few espressos through the day. Love coffee. Only way I can wake up.

LOL, same. All the bitter taste liquids/foods are tough to like the first time, but now I appreciate almost all of them.

To OP I'd recommend these sweet coffees with syrup.

And eventually, you make your way past all the milk and sugar and cream and just start drinking your coffee black, appreciating all the nuances.
That was my evolution anyway...

At work I make one fresh cup of coffee everyday with a splash of oat milk. I use a pour over method (chemex) and beans that are freshly roasted from the local coffee shop.

I limit myself to one cup a day though bc too much caffeine makes me jittery.

It’s all about how you brew it, I prefer a Chemex to a Keurig or standard coffee maker.

Not a fan of freeze-dried instant coffee or filter coffee/french press.

Got an espresso machine at home so usually make myself some form of fresh espresso-based coffee in the morning, usually a flat white or cortado.

I find caffeine doesn't have too much of a useful effect anymore, but still really enjoy the flavour of different grinds, so about 1/3 of what I buy is decaf wholebeans.
Also been drinking caffeine-free diet coke a lot more than the normal caffeinated diet coke.

Just find a week without caffeine sometimes I get headaches going cold turkey, but then it has more effect again when I need a pick-me-up or a kick.



Key to good coffee from fresh ground beans is extraction time. Don't want it to be too short or it can be quite sour. If its too long it'll be bitter. Thats the case whether its an espresso machine, or leaving them to percolate in a french press or any other way of making your coffee.
Cold brew can actually sometimes be some of the best, if you do it right.
