    I probably drink at least 1 full pot of coffee a day. But, that is only 4 of the monster size cups that I use.

    Well coffee does wake me up and keep me alive on the road to and from work.

    I make some anytime I need to get up before 6 a.m. and hit the road for a job a long way from home.

    And I save half of it for the trip back home at the end of the day.

    I got my 1 pint coffee pot at a backpacking/camping store, and my 1 1/2 cup coffee mugs at Starbucks.

    Tea is my main beverage during the day.

    I make a half gallon of iced tea each morning from Lipton's instant with lemon and sugar already in it.

    This lasts me a 12 hour shift.

    That's kind of how I do it. I have a huge travel mug and drink a cup or two in the morning and fill the mug with the rest and hit the road. I spend a lot of time driving.

    I’ve drank coffee since I was 12. Recently tried Starbucks breakfast blend. Threw that crap in the garbage. I’ve been drinking Folgers special roast. But lately something has changed. It doesn’t have a coffee taste. Maybe it’s cheap beans they are using now. Anyways I seen some McDonald’s coffee at the grocery store. Pick up some to try out. Pretty good with a good coffee flavor. It’s called special roast made with 100% Arabic beans.

    I drink hot tea most of the time. Green most often, but also decaf black. I switched to decaf when I started having reflux problems, but I figure green has a low enough caffeine content I can drink that regular.

    w00t! I'm not going to die from alcoholism!

    Srsly, if you get the chance, buy yourself a bag of Type 1, or "Extra Fancy," 100% Kona coffee.

    A 1 lb bag goes for ~$70 bucks.

    I wouldn't buy this all the time, because $70 for coffee WTF? But it is really, really, really good.
