Can't wake up in the morning? That's nothing one cup of coffee cannot take care of. Faced with a task at work that seems overwhelming? It is nothing two cups of coffee cannot resolve. Chronically depressed and probably in need of psychiatric care but have neither the time or money for it? Three additional cups of coffee can make short work of that problem!
Is it just me, or is coffee like some kind of miracle?

you have coffe at 8.30 am
you have to go number 2 by 9.00 am
the session is never clean, it requires lots of wiping because your deposit is not in a solid state.
that means skid marks, smelly butt, and if you work for a company that saves money on TP, a bleeding rear end.

coffee is a tool used by toilet paper manufactures in order to sell more of their product!
it's all a secret plot hatch by a group of elite called the Decaffeinati.
Stop pushing their propaganda!

Some people can handle all of these tasks and more, without a single drop. But you're right, it certainly does help the world go around, and I've often thought about what a huge economic effect coffee has on our nation. Just imagine if it were outlawed (caffeine is a drug, a stimulant), what the economic consequences would be. a reply to: olddognewtricks

Be careful my friend. I used to think the same thing. Now its adderal extended in the morning with a booster after noon.

At this rate I may dust of my chemistry degree and break bad just to keep up with 55 hr work weeks.

I think you've got it backwards. The pressure to increase productivity has given rise to the caffeine culture and ADD addiction.

I have decided to believe the science reports which claim that coffee helps to postpone the onset of Alzheimers.
I would link one of them, but I can't remember where I found it.

Personally, I drink coffee just because I like the taste and because it's become a bit of a habit by now.

It doesn't wake me
It does taste great
It does suppress my appetite
It also makes me hungry
It makes me go to the bathroom (which isn't a problem)
I only drink half a cup in the early AM between 4-7 AM

I guess, I drink coffee because I like the taste and it goes great with my American Spirit cigs

Whoo..it takes you 30 minutes to go do #2? I'm there after a sip and that's why I only drink half a cup a day mostly. In the winter moths I may drink a whole cup, but I live in So Cal/Los Angeles County so a cup of hot coffee in the AM can damage my delicate innerds


I don't drink much coffee, but I love it like weed (which I'm particular too...sorry ATS)!

I never really timed it, but tomorrow morning i will try my best and give you an accurate estimate.
When i was still smoking i can tell you it was in the order of nanoseconds eheheh
I live in the czech republic and here especially in winter you need something warm to face the outside world, and apparently hot wine is frowned upon as a morning beverage in the work place

Only if its the real stuff, freshly ground coffee perfectly extracted with the right pressured and temped water, for the right length of time so as to get the best of the beans only, then add perfectly steamed, silky smooth milk, layer into the cup and watch it dance around with the crema.

Admire, Sip...and admire some more.

I love real coffee.

Hell yeah, American Spirit, additive free baccy!!!

That and real coffee (well, I mix my American spirit with another goodee, sometimes, as I'm not a baccy, or other, smoker full-time)

But coffee, real coffee......3-4 times a day, without a doubt.

Coffee works..... you know what else works and is BETTER?

Good diet, good exercise and solid sleep. (Maybe even meditation!!)

No need for coffee.

Don't forget soda like Mountain Dew - and Excedrin has concentrated caffeine in it, take some of that when you want to focus. $10. for a whole bottle.

How true this is. The great big hole in that plan however is sleep. I am a typical person for this part of the country in that I have a long commute to work (long story short: well paying jobs are never in the same town as affordable housing) coupled with a profession (IT) that requires my brain to be in overdrive for long hours. I really need nine hours of sleep daily if I were to eliminate coffee but I typically just get five or six.

I'm no expert but I think you'll be good with 6 hours


I'm sure you already know this, it's none of my business, but... ... IT professional - you should be working from home!

YEAH? ? HOW? I am a mid-level QA tester, with basic programming skills, and just beginning to learn automated testing. How do you suggest I make it into a work from home scenario, if you please?

I too am a Java Junkie. Any coffee will do really. Except De-Caff. I mean, what's the point right? It would be like a cigarette with no nicotene. But I am one for excess. Over Drink, overdose, over smoke, over the top everything. "I want the world and I want it now!" Quoted from My Bud, Jim Morrison. So coffee for Me is a given, I'd say...... You know, just sayin'......

I only drink water. All humans should only drink water.

Coffee & sodas are the #ing devil.

Reports show a direct correlation between Starbucks product consumption and the dramatic rise of vanity selfies.

Personally, I'm happiest with my simple drip blend. Two pots a day keeps the teenagers away.
