    A pot a day?

    Fecking lightweight. Between 2 of us we'll knock down 5 pots of fresh brewed caffeine, just a little skinny milk in mine and no sugar, and there is not even a noticeable effect on my blood pressure.

    Coffee has been proven to provide health benefits, from adding vitamins and antioxidants into you to protecting against things like Alzheimers and Parkinsons, appears to help protect the liver, when not taken with sugar appears to help against Type 2, improves cognitive function, can reduce the risk of colorectal cancers, help with depression, the list goes on.

    3-4 cups a day of PROPER coffee, not that instant or decaf shite, per day will do much more for you than "healthy" drinks like smoothies, fruit juices, etc.

    My dad had a few times palpitations, was pretty scary btw, he stopped drinking coffee and it disappeared until he tried to drink just "a little bit" of coffee and it came back lol. Now he got it he takes the decaffeinated one :D

    It has a lot of benefits thats for sure but people it can hurt some people depending on their condition.

    Some people are sensitive to caffeine, and in all honesty they would be better switching to tea over decaf due to the chemical process the coffee beans go through to remove the caffeine.

    He'll still get the benefits on the cardio system with tea, especially a good Earl Grey thanks to the statin-like effect of the Bergamot, and I'd rather have that than something that has been "washed" in all sorts of chemicals.


    I'm the opposite, I've seen me having to get up at 2am to have coffee so I can get to sleep.

    Yes, I am THAT addicted but since I've been on the Joe for, erm, over 40 years it's expected.

    i've only been drinking coffee for about 20 years, i used to be a soda addict, mostly because it was instant, didn't have to get up and wait for it to brew. then the carbonation started bothering me, now i can't drink anything carbonated or it makes me feel like a swollen tick.....
    so i started drinking coffee, at that time with 3 sugars and 2 creams, i've cut it back over the years to 1 and 1...black coffee still sucks.
    and i drink the simply smooth from folgers that has the tannic acid removed, so it's never made me nauseous like regular coffee will if i drink a whole pot. the process to remove the acid may or may not be good, but i can drink it, so i do....

    I tend to go for specific types of coffee, some are far more acidic than others which is why I prefer not buying the brand name stuff here as so much of it is either too acidic or isn't pure Arabica so has that nasty, bitter, Robusta taste (Starfucks, I'm looking at you and your overpriced crap).

    But I know several places where I can buy some damn good and smooth Yrgajeffe at what I think is a good price, as in half the price the brand names in the stores charge because they have a fancy label, so I always find something that I can drink by the gallon without the need for anything like Zantac to keep the gut acid down.

    i live in a small town. it's a tourist town, so anything here is 3 times the price it ought to be, and that's the cheap shit.
    it's a 50 mile drive to the nearest city that has anything worth a damn, and it's all through a lot of traffic. if i'm going to knoxville, i'll do some shopping there, but it's not worth the drive just to pick up a few things

    At home I drink decaf, since the wife has to. But on the trail my mix is 2/3 Cafe Bustelo instant, and 1/3 Miss Swiss. Enough caffeine to get my ass out of camp and down the trail.

    Lots of hikers are using the "energy" gummies these days. I'm too tight for that. I just add instant coffee to my water bottle if I must have more umpgh. But when I find myself in that situation, I will sit down and have a one man safety meeting. Thirty minutes later when I get back around to walking, I'm ready for more PUDS.

    When I already got 2-3 coffee during the day I try to drink tea instead, I feel less side effects with it.

    Forgot to mention black tea is best to replace coffee. At least for me ;)

    When my wife had to go to decaf I started us off with half-caf. Then after a couple weeks cut that to 75/25 decaf. Then to full decaf. No side effects that way. I always drank regular coffee right up til bedtime. Never kept me awake, but would wake me up to go pee.

    Coffee has many benefits for ones health.However there are a multitude of negatives that can impact certain individuals that make it not viable for consumption.There has been health experts that express concern on coffees acidity and the damage that causes to the body due to the acidity if not balanced providing a ideal environment for cancer to thrive.This was expressed in a book I read about health (cant think of the name, but will re-edit this with the reference later), that coffee can cause joint inflammation of the fingers when consumed in excess.
    Speaking form experience the only negative from coffee that I endure is fatigue, I consumed about 8 cups of coffee a day.( Have 4 shots of espresso in the mornings, not sure what this equates to in cups of filter coffee.)\

    Happy Toking.:bigjoint:

    a 2 oz espresso has about 80 mg caffeine, a 12 oz coffee has 120. if you stick to a couple of espressos, you're better off (caffeine wise) than drinking a couple of coffees

    Yeah, I will stick to the espressos.I can barely tell whether I crave the taste of coffee or the caffeine, but it wakes me up in the morning fairly well.
