    How many Coffees per day? ie: drink & make ?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Greetings CSers, 8-)

    Just wondered (probably been asked before) How many coffees per day do people drink ? and also make for others in their workplace or home? ......and........

    I would love to know how many coffees our Professional Baritas out there make per day on average and maybe even a record day? :-/

    Cheers, ;)

    I make at home a min of 8 cups for personal consumption for my wife and myself, but that doubles when we have guests

    I make 3 a day for myself.
    On weekends I make an extra 1 a day for my wife.
    As the weather has turned cold I now make 1 hot chocolate a night for my daughter.

    The above numbers might vary if wee have guests over or if I make the occasional dink at work for a colleague.
    At work however, Ive taught them to use the Sunbeam 6910 so they make their own.

    Let me see:

    Personally I drink between 2 - 5 doubles a day :o - I drink one whenever I feel like a coffee. (didnt realise how high my caffeine intake is until now)

    and on weekends I will probably make 1-2 more - for other people.

    On average, drink 2-3 coffees per day. On weekends I probably make more (trials/tasting/play/etc) but usually only end up drinking the same amount as any other day :)

    Sounds like Im the wowser among this lot. :D :D

    I have a double every morning with brekky, and thats usually it most days, exceptions are weekends and maybe one or two weekdays where Ill have another later in the day.

    Since discovering the decaf mocha java, I have added one or two decaf doubles to the above most days.

    Used to have more caffeine, particularly a cuppa after tea every night, but started waking up with a "coffee headache" if for some reason I didnt have that evening cup. Got really sick of that, those headaches are mongrels, so had to cut back. Try to break it up a bit now to avoid the same thing happening.

    Would make one or two extra cups most days for others when Im making for myself.


    Cheers....................Sean

    Re: How many Coffees per day? ie: drink & make ?

    When I first started roasting, my coffee consumption increased..and probably doubled for a few months for obvious reasons,.. but it has since settled down into a nice amount for me.

    On a regular day without visitors, more often than not,..Id consume two doubles a day, but occasionally three doubles. The morning coffee,..I could not live without and never miss.. the second coffee is usually late in the morning (if Im not running errands) once Ive tidied up after the familys morning mayhem,.. and most days lately...thats usually it for me. Most afternoons and evenings, Im totally flat out doing all the after-school sports stuff, then getting the tribe fed,.house tidied again etc...theres just no time to make coffee or sit down to enjoy it...and by very late evening when I could sit and would really enjoy a coffee,... Im usually just too stuffed to make it. Wish someone else in this house would make me one,.. my daughter would if I asked her,.....but then Id be left with cleaning up after her so I dont ask. ;D

    About caffeine headaches.... when I was drinking instant coffee (I cannot believe I just put those two words in the same sentence),..I woke with a dreadful caffeine headache every morning for as long as I can remember..and it took two strong coffees in the morning before it would lift. I never wake with a caffeine headache now... what a bonus!!!!

    Home-wise, I make 2-4 capps/lattes per day (for wife and self) and maybe a couple of hot chocs late evening.

    Cafe-wise, sometimes up to 150 per day during busier
    periods.

    I usually have 3- 4 doubles per day (none after 5pm, I need some sleep!!).
    In between my wife will have a latte or two, my daughter likes long blacks with a splash of milk, so Silvia gets a good workout each day, but she doesnt complain!!!

    2-3 doubles a day, usually espresso or ristretto (I usually cant tell until it starts coming out :-[ ::)) . Thats during the week.

    Weekends usually 3-4 doubles a day.... and I usually hit up a cafe with mates on a Saturday morning. Went to Cordial for the first time on Saturday. V.impressed. So much so, I grabbed a 250g bag of The Golden Cobra coffee which I had never had before either.

    I just ran the calculator over my coffee consumption
    and if I average it out to 10 per day that equals = 3640 cups made in a year


    WOW thats coffee bliss
    Know wonder we Roast,Grind,Make and Drink our own coffee
    There is a lot of coffee love in that process
