I love coffee. Seriously. I drank 16 cups/128oz of coffee today. Buzzzzz! Well, not really. My family are immune to caffeine - Mum & I especially. It's not uncommon for us to drink 3-5 cups of coffee after dinner, and still be asleep within hours. I used to take a 500ml (16oz) Thermos cup of coffee to bed, drink it, have the last sip, hand the cup to J, roll over and fall asleep straight away. Mum drinks even more coffee than I do, by the way, and always has a cuppa with her whether it's hot or gone cold (I don't have her taste for cold, or even warm, coffee - I take mine scalding). I also get 700-800mg a day in my diet pills, plus whatever I get in tea & Diet Coke. Yes, I consume exorbitant amounts of caffeine.
Coffee is actually a fear food for me - unmeasured coffee, anyway. I weighed my coffee for quite a while, and then found an average weight, but still use measuring spoons. The thought of dumping a heaped spoon of granules into a mug scares the shit out of me, even to have black. Massive fucking fear.
Do you girls drink coffee? A lot of it? How do you take it? Obviously, I drink copious amounts of black, Stevia-sweetened coffee, really damn hot. I like lattes on occasion, too, but milky drinks/liquid calories are a major fear food. I'd rather have a measured skim latte sachet than an unmeasured black coffee, though.
