Coffee

    How many do you drink a day? And what type?

    I drink 4 (skim milk + honey) and have been told by swimming coach that's too much. I'm thinking there are some who are far worse than that.

    I drink three black coffees a day. I read somewhere recently that 6 is the max you should have. I tend to have them on the bounce too (maybe a small delay between the second and third coffee's)

    I also never drink coffee after 2 pm (unless boozed and it is mixed with some alcohol in some way)



  • you can also read that there is no upper limit. Basically have whatever you want that makes you feel good

    1. Breakfast. Pick one up on the way to work. 10.30

    Never after 12. No, check that, very very rarely after 12.

    I presume when they talk of coffees they mean one standard shot?

    What do you have as a pickup for the after lunch drowsiness?



  • We used to have a Starbucks in our cafeteria and I would have 8 or more a day because free coffee. Even if it had been good coffee that's way too many and I used to get withdrawal headaches at the weekends when I only had a couple a day. Don't do that, kids.

    Now I have one flat white a day when I'm in NZ and none in the UK, where the coffee is generally mediocre. One of the reasons I always look forward to NZ, because I love a good cup.

    @mariner4life ditto, I never have coffee in the afternoons / evenings.

    work out at lunchtime helps. But i usually have a tea of some description mid-arvo. Herbal or black depending on how long since i was in China. No sugar no milk in that.



  • Up until 3 weeks ago one black plunger coffee a day, but my new minion at work goes to 7/11 and gets $1 coffee each day so I’ve been having those. Surprisingly good for $1 - although free for the month of August with your own cup!!!

    I generally have a mocha on the weekend.



  • When you guys are hungover (like I am today due to being in Auckland for a birthday last night) do you find Coffee just makes the heart rattle along like the clappers?

    I hear that. More like "I'm too scared to have a coffee"

    Pinot Gris.



  • @mariner4life Queensland bogans too tough to have a bit of chocolate in their coffee?

    Actually doesn’t @Rancid-Schnitzel put honey in his? Edit: And skim milk!!! Can i borrow your gif?



  • As someone that exports coffee, you can never drink enough. I'd ignore a swimming coach on this topic that advises you otherwise.

    Shit man, I made it out, I’m going to indulge in all that being white middle class offers me!



  • @Nepia I likes me a good Mocha too!

    I drink maybe 4 or 5 cups a day...having after certain times doesnt affect me.

    I am much better off than I was when I drank similar 2 or 3 years back with 2 sugars...now no sugar.

    I feel worse if I have a coffee when hungover!

    where's the Fern bulk buying discount?

    Also, I've cut back to about 3-4 a day. If I'm meetinga lot of people in cafes, I switch to decaf... otherwise get the jitters. I try not to after lunch, but sometimes it just happens...
