I like it on the stronger side. We use a drip coffee maker at home. Sometimes if I have espresso I'll use my moka pot, which is my favorite way to have it. I drink it black, so I like it to be tasty coffee since it won't be drowned out by cream and sugar. DH cuts it half and half with decaf and drinks other things during the day too. His doctor told him he was essentially speeding with the amount of caffeine he was consuming in addition to his asthma and allergy meds.

DH used to drink 2+ pots a day himself. Now between the two of us, we do 1-2 pots. I only drink about 1 travel mug (16 oz?) a day and some days I don't drink any. We do go out for coffee a couple times a week and I get whatever swill they have at the chain cafe.

How does everyone enjoy their coffee? I don't mean how do you take it... but what strength do you prefer? Weak or on the strong side? Do you prefer instant, drip, espresso?

Have you cut down on the amount you drink? I would like to cut back from the 4 a day to 2, and I'm thinking of cutting out the amount ground that I use for drip. I'm using 1.5 TBSP per 10 oz. mug. So far just thinking. LOL!

What are your thoughts about coffee?
