    During the week 4 doubles from the automatic machine at work then a long black when i get home.
    On weekends its generally about 4 - 5 long blacks always made with the double porta filter.

    Re: How many coffees do you have a day?

    Two coffees (double shot) are my lot most days, with sometimes a third if Im at home in the afternoon.

    On odd occasions there may be a couple more - as a coffee snob I feel a duty to regularly sample my favourite cafes to ensure standards are being maintained!

    Usually a double for morning tea, and another just before dinner service starts.

    Re: How many coffees do you have a day?

    Usually 2 doubles,....but occasionally 3 doubles
    One double in the morning (my must have kick start to the day), which is usually two lattes and another double quite late in the evening(when everything is done and I can sit down and enjoy) is the norm. The evening doubles are mostly lattes too, but occasionally treat myself to an iced coffee or an affogato with one of these shots.

    Very occasionally I might have time for a coffee in the afternoon before I pick up kids from school, so will pour a double but only drink one latte and save the other shot for an iced coffee in the evening. When this happens,. I dont normally make another double in the evening.

    Not too bad,.. 4 - 6 coffees per day

    Re: How many coffees do you have a day?

    Mon-Fri (when working):

    10:00am - caffe latte
    3:00pm - espresso
    ~8:30pm - espresso at home

    Weekends are a mixed bag with no caffeine routine :)

    A minimum of 6. Mostly lattes but I am slowly getting the espresso taste. If I go all espresso I will be able to cut down the milk and hopefully some cholesterol! ::)

    Re: How many coffees do you have a day?

    How many is too many?
    Medical literature varies and there is conflicting information about the "good" and bad" effects of coffee ranging from high blood pressure, cholesterol effects (good and bad), cancer, pancreatic disorders etc etc ...
    In essence nobody actually knows how much is TOO much
    I (like the rest of you by the sounds) enjoy coffee and drink 2 - 3 cups / day and often more on the weekends.
    My maxim is : "Most things in moderation except moderation"

    Re: How many coffees do you have a day?

    Myself Ill have an espresso in the morning, and a sip from a dozen or so during the day.

    There was a great ad in NZ for a supermarket chain with the catchphrase "Everything in moderation, including moderation" I like it.

    That articles a bit suss.
    No mention of espresso so Ill assume its OK.

    Also, the withdrawal symptoms looked to be almost the same as the addiction symptoms, so whats the point of quitting?

    Re: How many coffees do you have a day?

    Usually around three Flat Whites per/day here, each with two double ristrettos as a base - that makes it around 12 shots a day. Pretty moderate really...

    Ha ha. You dont do things by half, Sketchy. They reckon this is a good way to see that you dont have a problem with any substance (including alcohol, coffee, chocolate [smiley=evil.gif]) - see if you can do without for a couple of days. So I think youre ok now - back on the bean (just not 18 doubles a day! :o).

    Me, Ive got a bit of a cold and, after my first double shot this morning (which didnt go down with the usual level of enjoyment), I dont feel like any more :( . Possibly my bodys way of telling me its not what I need right now.
