    Your PERSONAL negative effects of drinking coffee?

    personally, I do not have a lot of negative effects.
    I guess that the only one I have is .... when I drink coffee (black coffee or even flat white) after 6 pm, I have a tough time sleeping well throughout the night. (well, I go to bed early around 9:30 to 10 pm).. so perhaps for the people who sleeps at midnight might not have the same problem as me.

    anyway, your personal negative effects?

    I drink about 3 cups a day + water inbetween and I'm a regular toilet visitor - it's annoying especially at work(((

    I only have two cups of coffee in the morning but always have to pay a visit to the restroom afterwards. If I happen to drink caffeinated coffee anytime in the afternoon or later, I have trouble sleeping that night. As a result, I religiously stick to my two cups in the morning and if I have any coffee later in the day it is Decaf. But even Decaf is known to have some caffeine so I try not to drink coffee at all after the morning cups.

    Anytime you drink anythingyou will be making a trip to the restroom, water, coffee, soda, whatever. Remember, Dark Roast = light caffeine, Light Roast = Heavy Caffeine.

    Well for starters it isn't actually true - or at most only partially true.

    Roast profile does not impact the amount of caffeine.

    A darker roast is able to yield more caffeine in the cup... if you are dosing on weight not volume.

    This is because when comparing two espresso shots (one dark, one light) the dark roast is less dense means you are using more coffee to get the same weight.

    listening to this, i just wonder how many hours (I guess it is different for every person) normally last to disturb your sleep... I am taking about the caffeine from a cup of a normal brewed coffee.

    for me, I can not drink it before 5 hours of my sleeping time.

    This is the first time I've had someone explain the rationale for how much caffeine ends up in the cup. And it makes total sense to me. Up until now I had always thought the same thing. That dark roasted beans contain less caffeine and lighter roasts contain more. But that is all before you do any grinding. Thanks for the explanation.
