  • How many coffees do you drink in a day?

    So i’ve recently cut down from two coffees (one in the morn & one in the arvo) to a double shot in the morning.


    This saves me about #3 a day on coffee, paying for an extra shot instead of a whole new coffee.


    Once I have the double shot in the morning, I can’t seem to justify the days I badly want an arvo coffee.


    On the weekends, I get away with one shot in the late morning but stick to the same rhythm most days.


    How many coffees do you drink in a day? Why do I feel so scandalous for considering a third shot?

    Weekdays:
    Two double shots every morning before work.
    Occasionally three.

    Weekends:
    Routinely have three double shots over the course of the morning.

    Rarely drink any coffee in the afternoon/evenings

      2 doubles before 9am.

      1 or 2 (unusual) more in arvo / evening. In recent times, I've not been having it during the work day. Dunno why. Sometimes I split, so end up with 5 - 7 shots a day all up.

      Ummm... Your doing fine shonasays.

      And welcome.

        Weekdays I have a double shot at 4:30am then a double, some times two between 1:00 - 4:00pm. Weekends it can be around 3-4 a day.

          Up at 6.30, 2-3 doubles before work and another in the car on my way to work around 10.30. Maybe 8 x 100ml cups of filter, my last one being around 7pm. Knock off at 11ish. Rinse and repeat until Sunday when I start with a latte and drink a mix of long and short blacks all day long (8 or so?) sometimes a siphon or pot of filter if I have something interesting. Monday I clean the machine and have about 3 long blacks all day. Considering decaf on Sundays haha

                2 double shots before work. 1 shot of cold drip at work between 9:30 and 10 and a shot of cold drip after lunch between 1 and 2.

                    Haha wow.
                    I start the day with a single shot at about 6am. Then make a double to drink on my way to work. Occasionally I'll have another single shot later on.

                    I had to just google what an unhealthy dose of caffeine is, given some of the responses above. I'm actually shocked at how much coffee is OK to consume.

                      Almost always 2 coffees a day, usually espresso based. Occasionally there's a 3rd, but it's very dependent on what shifts I'm on. This is my limit. I don't feel any negative effects from this amount, but any more and I don't sleep well. Caffeine tolerance is very much an individual thing so don't drink 5-6 cups a day because the medical profession says it's ok if your body can't handle it.

                        I'm a dbl shot latte to knock the dust off at 6.30am, followed by a dbl shot long black which I usually take to work in a thermosy thing. Most days I have an aeropress during the day if I'm at work around midday, or a single shot long black if I'm at home. I find that way I get a good idea what I'm roasting is suiting best (milk based or black), espresso machine or brew. Some days I'll sneak an extra long black in when I get home from work, but I'm usually up for something else brewed by then....

                          with breakfast, a double shot in an aeropress (my wife doesn't like me turning on the espresso machine at that hour)

                          a crappy instant coffee (moccona) in a mug for the morning at work.

                          a crappy instant coffee in the afternoon at work.

                          weekends is 3-4 shots in the espresso machine over each morning, then I am ready to enjoy the rest of the day, with gleaming intensity.

                          the instant coffee at work is sadly essential, as if I have good coffee there, I drink too much, and get the jitters...

                            I reckon I'd go the decaf option over instant.
