    How many cups do you have a day?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi All,

    I couldnt really find a thread for this, and thought it might be an interesting topic to discuss. However, I dont think this should end up becoming competition; just a place to check how obsessed youre becoming :D

    I average around 10 a day, and thats 10x~30ml shots usually in the form of a latte.

    How about you? :)

    Re: How many cups do you have a day?

    I usually have a double latte or flat white in the morning in a travel mug and one or 2 single flat whites at night.

    I dont think how many you drink is the only measure of* obsession here* ;D

    I will settle for 1 very good coffee a day rather than 3 bad ones.

    I used to do three singles a day, now do two. Sometimes I can have up to six on weekends. Theyre all piccolos.

    Usually around 1 double at home and 2 or 3 at work.

    On the weekends 2 - 3 doubles per day.

    Haha I remember the feeling well Mr Slurpy in having the full six cups worth stovetop in the one cup. I doubt my mind could handle that non stop though.

    This I gotta agree with though. I know countless peeps who say that theyd have trouble sleeping by consuming more - I however feel calmer, more reflective by drinking (good!) coffee.

    Agree 100%, not that Im an expert on Measure Theory :P I too would settle for 1 good coffee over 10 bads, but assuming all coffees you make are good I would take 10 goods a day over one...

    Re: How many cups do you have a day?

    With espresso less is more and I think that also translates to the number of coffees had.

    Make them really good, and have a few less.

    My limit for pleasure is 3 in the morning and none after lunch (not to adversely affect the sleep pattern).

    When cupping at work it will normally not be more than 3 or maybe 4 types in a sitting and we do cup and spit. We often repeat and re check so the 3 or 4 become many more easily enough. Too many in a sitting results in fatigue, not just on the palate but from the whole thing, it is time consuming, and there is a point where we decide thats enough.* That is where we are doing all our own prep and cupping. We cup early in the morning and virtually have no coffee after for the day....perhaps one for pleasure a little later.

    Note the above is entirely up to the individual roaster, depends on what they are cupping for, and that is just what we at CosmoreX Coffee do. The definition of what constitutes "for pleasure" is also interesting, because we find the process of cupping different things very satisfying in a work related sense and not necessarily any less pleasurable than sipping a standard cappuccino for a bit of "smoko" time, just that it constitutes a different type of pleasure or satisfaction.*

    The above is different to when we are sitting on a formal judging panel for example at the Sydney Royal, where we cup much more but all the prep is done by others, we cup and spit only, and when we find an occasional stunner, we tend to polish at least some of it off* ;)

    After that, its all up to the individual and their individual contitution and remember...everything in moderation!

    Two cups, that is two single shots. I used to drink over 12 cups a day but I stopped when I started to get heart palpitations, moments when I felt my heart stopped.

    Re: How many cups do you have a day?

    anything between 1 and 3, or 4 if I like the coffee place I try that week

    usually 1 in the morning and 1 at night, I make the excuse at work and with clients that I only have 1 in the morning and at night otherwise I dont sleep well

    because coffee at a client is usually instant or something really awful, as well as the coffee from the auto machine at the office is on par with instant for how bad it is

    Re: How many cups do you have a day?

    Heres the weird thing,

    Even though I love coffee Ive been limiting myself to decaf for years because Im such a poor sleeper. Having recently over the last three months resumed drinking between 1 and 2 doubles of the real thing per day (in the am) Im now actually sleeping better than Ive done in ages! Go figure....

    2 long blacks, Fiefys barista comp blend ....It is very hard to find coffee as good as that ;)

    If you havent tried it ...you must! 8-)

    sometimes a mac or double ristretto latte as well.....usually no more than 3 a day.

    2 Max. Always one at breakfast time, involving the sacred ritual of grinding the beans fresh. I enjoy the process of making the coffee as much as the coffee itself.

    I make a latte myself and one for the missus.

    Then at lunch I will occasionally have one if I can find a place that makes a decent one. ;)

    Re: How many cups do you have a day?

    I hit one at breakfast time (usually in place of breakfast) and another at about 6pm when I get home from work. These are double shot lattes (or cappuccino, depending on how badly I froth the milk).

    Weekends I add one or two during the day as well.

    Re: How many cups do you have a day?

    I work from my home, so usually four or five shots a day. I start with a milk based coffee first thing in the morning and have the others as long blacks or espressos as the day progresses. In my household we enjoy what we call a "piccolo long black" - a single shot on about 50mls of hot water. We would probably have a couple of those each day and dont think twice about drinking espresso based coffee in the evenings and at night.

    Best wishes, Russell

    Hey i can still have an appreciation for coffee, i might not have the refined taste buds of some of the people on here but i know what a good coffee tastes like and can certainly appreciate one.

    Plus im a poor student and i definitely dont want to be going down the path of a coffee addict. Not now and hopefully not later in life. The things i could do with that money...

    Re: How many cups do you have a day?

    At least 6 a day.

    Ill have a short mac in the morning straight out of the Alex Duetto before I go to work.

    2x espressos out of the Saeco in the office

    2-3 coffees from clients

    1 espresso at home before dinner.

    On Saturday mornings when I put my barista hat on, Ill have at least 10 coffees in 4 hours.. constantly sipping on espresso test shots in between customer coffees to ensure the coffee is coming out okay!

    Re: How many cups do you have a day?

    The short answer is too many at the moment.

    I just bought a new machine, and cant walk past it without pulling a shot. Im a bit obsessed with texturing milk and practicing late art, so its a bit out of control. Perhaps 8 - 10 ????

    Would like to get it back to 4 ish.
