    I would like to hold this position but given my personality type, it's mainly a lack of exposure.

    3 cups in the morning, then a large coffee around 10am. I have been trying to cut out the afternoon coffee but it only happens about every other day.

    my experience with the pod coffee (keruig, etc.) they suck.

    I'm a coffee in the afternoon/night, for some reason it does a number on my bowels in the morning. For you marc maron fans, POWWW!

    Sigh, after many years of happy coffee consumption, I can no longer enjoy any because of the caffeine. I've somehow developed a physical intolerance. One cup, and by the next evening I'm sick with a headache and nausea. Detoxing from caffeine was a long and painful process.

    I envy you guys.

    I agree with you on the keriug. After years of grinding my own espresso beans and the mess of a pump machine at home, the nespresso is the next best thing.

    Mexican Chiapas is my new favorite brew coffee.

    My last cup of coffee (and caffeinated soda) was on October 13, 2006 -- yeah, a Friday (which I believe is good luck). I came down with a virus/flu, lost my appetite and stayed in bed for days. Realized later that I had gone through detox as a splitting headache that would not quit became part of the situation. I didn't start drinking coffee until around 2003 or so. I did develop a taste for good coffee and I thought I went a bit overboard -- not as far as Phil in Kicking & Screaming, but, in that direction; I wanted my COFFEE (Sumatra became my fave). Anyway, decided to go back to the way it had been for most of my life. It is harder pulling all-nighters without caffeine, but, somehow, I've been able to do it.

    In a race, I had an epiphany that maybe downing triple shots on my way to make a french press wasn't a good idea, and even though the caffeine was helping me endurance-wise, it was also making me nervous, anxious and twitchy.

    So I had a little "coffee time-out" and switched to green tea, which, due to L-theanine, doesn't give the same that coffee is well-known for.

    But green tea just doesn't taste anywhere near as good for me. So now I'm trying out having both green tea and coffee pre-ride, to get that calming effect of L-theanine while at the same time getting that much needed caffe arabica taste.

    Oh, and I only **** with french pressed Stumptown. Preferably beans of the Columbian and Brazilian variety. Stopped drinking gas station coffee in high school.

    I live with two Brits. Tea time all day. 3-4 cups every day.

    I also have a 100g sack of pure caffeine powder sitting in the fridge for my homemade gels and drinks.

    I love coffee. I start every day with a big mug of espresso. Those little weenie espresso cups are way too small.

    But I'm a lot healthier without the caffeine. Fortunately the roasters in our area make decent dark roast decaf beans.

    What's interesting about going decaf is that I am now sensitive enough that I can detect the caffeine in decaf. More than a couple cups and I get wired. So I try to limit myself most days to the one mug of espresso and a cup or two of dark watery liquid at work.

    Percolators aren't very expensive, and the coffee is great! Or you can get one of those doohickeys that fatal and everyone have been touting as the next best thing.

    You could probably buy green tea extract or l-theanine in concentrated forms and either put it into your coffee or just take a tablet. That way you won't be bloated full of water before a ride.

    Huge fan. Grew up with 'cafe con leche' & 'bucci', kinda miss those.

    These days I'm a fan of our cheapo $30 espresso machine/milk steamer combined with this. (the black canister - not as expensive at Safeway)

    I spent 10 days in Italy. Coffee back home is forever ruined for me.

    I have found a great coffee shop, however. It's called La Colombe. It's a must for the NYC guys. Plus, the owner is super cool dude who digs cycling.

    i have this machine in my kitchen. It works well, but leaks and drives me mad.
