I always feel bad about drinking too much coffee. Is it unusual to drink between 16-24 ounces of coffee througout a day? Am I a freak or is this normal? (I either get my double Americano or just drink brewed...every day)

UMMM....You are kidding right?? 16 to 24 ounces or did you mean 16-24 drinks? I just finished my first cup of the day..16 oz drip...was actually thinking about having an espresso but now I am scared that I might have a problem...Admitting there is a problem is the first step to recovery...never mind I am off to get my espresso!

Just making sure. I always think too much coffee will be bad, but still drink it every day. Just need to know I'm not alone!

Too Much?

Lately, I've been hitting about 80 oz. of strong, freshly ground and brewed, french pressed coffee/day. This may be too much, but, so far, I feel great! No trouble sleeping, either!

USDA

USDA database says average per capita coffee consumption was about 1.6 cups/day in 2002. This is down from 2.77 cups/day in 1960. I'd have thought per capita consumption would be up with all the Starbucks, etc.

I could never just drink drip Maxwell House at home. I'm spoiled on my hazelnut Americanos and Italian roasts. If you're gonna do it, do it right!

Ya can't go back!

I agree- once you've tasted good coffee, the pedestrian sludge that passed for it as purveyed by Maxwell House, Chock Full'o Nuts, and Folgers just won't ever do again! :-D
