    None. I feel like I’m missing something, but I think it tastes horrible unless it’s loaded with sugar. Darling Husband drinks a ton of coffee. We keep a pitcher of cold brew in the fridge and he tears through it. 

    I like tea, but I really just don’t have the patience for hot beverages. I have to wait for them to be cool enough to drink so I set them down and then forget about them until they’re too cold to be enjoyable.

    I put 2-3 because I drink just one – but it’s a giant, black iced coffee… so it feels like cheating to call it just one cup. I could probably split it among 4 friends.

    I despise all forms of coffee – mochas, tiramisu, black coffee, latte… you name it.

    mrscb2bee : . My husband and I have a 2.5 liter coffee percolator and get through 2 full pots a day. It’s great at Christmas as we get flavoured coffee. Either rum or Irish cream. 

    HAPPY COFFEE DAY

    I’ll say 1-2 if you call a cup 8oz.  I generally have 8-16 oz. once in the morning (strong and black, no cream, sugar, or flavoring).  If I make coffee in the morning with my Keurig before work, then only 8oz.  If I have to hit a coffee shop after I get to work, then a small or medium (though I rarely finish the medium).  

    That isn’t to say that’s my only caffeine – I’ll usually have a soda at lunch.  I like coffee flavored things (candy, chocolate, ice cream), and I NEED that one cup in the morning (other forms of caffeine just don’t do it), but it’s not my beverage of choice beyond that and I don’t like the ones that are basically liquid candy bars.

    2 cups every morning.  Sometimes a cup in mid afternoon. Occasionally an esoresso after dinner.

    Usually about 3 cups surprised  I distinctly remember the last day I went without a cup of coffee (on accident due to unforeseen circumstances) – it was in 2005, and I thought my head was going to split in half.  Never again!  

    I’m planning to TTC in a few months and am going to try to cut back before then, boohoo

    Ugh, too much coffee!  On an average day I usually have 3-4 cups.  I drink mine with unsweetened almond milk and no sweetener so that is how I justify my indulgence.  This was typed all while sipping on my 2nd cup.

    We can easily drink 1-2 pots. I feel more justified in this with all the new studies coming out on how healthy it is to drink 2+ cups of black coffee per day! It not only tastes good, healthy, and gives a small boost of energy, but it also helps to avoid me snacking in between meals.

    Well considering I have been working a million hours a week here lately (got home after midnight last night) I have a cup first thing, another mid-morning, and an afternoon iced coffee (or two if I’m falling asleep).

    Coffee is like the irresistible bad boy you cheat on sleep with.

    2-3 cups,  but each cup had a triple shot in it or more cool. With foamed milk. 

    Its life.

    yogabride2018 :  Haha!!  I was trying to decide if my giant iced coffee counted as one cup or not.  I drink iced coffee (usually Starbucks venti, sometimes grande) every. single. day.
