Coffee?

Living up to my name, it's time for a coffee question. How much coffee do you all drink a day? I want to make sure I'm not overdoing it even though I've scaled way back.


Also any coffee companies that you've tried that are absolute fire and I should pick up? Been eyeballing bones coffee company.

When I was 23 I could drink coffee all day and it would keep me alert, awake, and crushing the phone. Nowadays if I have more than 2 cups I get jittery as hell and if I have a cup after 3pm I'm up all night. 

Getting old is weird.

@salesnerd - Pro tip for you: If you want to help the jitters try taking your coffee with 200mg of l-theanine. It's a perfectly safe amino acid that will slow the digestion and make the caffeine buzz much smoother and less jittery. At least this works for me.

Oat milk seems to be the rage these days! I use almond milk with my protein shakes, way better than water and less filling than milk

Same, way less jittery and you can have another cup in the afternoon if you’re tired without staying up all night.

Death Wish Coffee packs a punch. Especially if you've built up a caffeine tolerance... which sounds like most of this thread has haha.

I'd love to only do mornings but that after lunch feeling is so brutal!  Still trying to figure out what can help my energy level in the afternoons and so far I've only found that eating a smaller lunch has helped.

High quality coffee is a tiny thing that makes a big impact on my day. When I'm on the road and drinking what's available it makes me appreciate the recently roasted, freshly ground coffee that my wife says is way too expensive that I have at home.

Nothing worse than a cup of swill dirty water or an old pot. I miss road coffee and getting to try local coffee shops. Home brew is just not the same anymore

Yeah, even a great pot of coffee at home isn't quite the same as a perfectly made cup from a local coffee shop. I've been loving the growth of small batch roasters popping up everywhere.

I have cut back to 1 or 2 cups in the morning. I got to a point where I was having caffeine withdrawal headaches, so I decided I needed to pull back 😂

Totally feel you. I did a cleanse and couldnt have caffeine and noticed the headaches (well how could you not lol) and then realized when i go back i have to go smaller scale. They came out with seltzer with caffeine which helped in afternoon to avoid another cup. Good luck, im with you!

I try to limit my 1-2 cups to the morning only, then water. Occasionally the afternoon slump warrants an iced coffee but it's rare.

I don't feel right if I haven't had a coffee when I've already started my day. This is not 'omg man, crack lol' post, but I don't feel settled until I have had my cup of java. If I haven't had it, about two or three tasks in I'll start to realise I want it and take a second to go and grab it. 

All hail the bean.

I'm head of sales for a small coffee company and I only drink 2 cups a day. Doesn't mean that you only need 2 cups a day, it's just what works for me. My only advice to all the sales savages is life's too short for shit coffee. Buy the good stuff.

This is the hardest ask of my day lol. What I can tell you, without breaking rules of engagement, is that we sell usually private coffee brands. So you usually won't see our name brand unless your actively hunting for it online. 

So even if I could tell you, I'd have to give you a customer example first lol

Good old black Tetley Tea. Been drinking tea since I was a wee lad. Of course back then when I was 2 or so, it was just warm milk with some drops of tea to color it. lol No, it's hardly any milk and mostly tea. How times have changed. lol

I used to drink more, but 1 cup some time during the day is enough.  I use a preworkout drink that's heavy caffeine and I think the combo taught me a lesson I won't forget one day.  You ever felt extremely sleepy, but your insides were doing the Junebug?  Yeah, not good lol
