I usually go to bed around 2 am. If i’m with friends/doing something, i’ll drink another cup or two around 11 pm.

User name checks out. Do you drink all that? Or do caffeine pills?

So an espresso is normally 1 to 1.5 oz (like a shot) 12oz is 8-12 servings of coffee. Are you sure that you're not pulling lungos? (long shots, so more water for the caffeine) If not, then you probably shake more than I do when I have the Sunday scaries.

I mean, I love my coffee, but I rarely do more than 6 a day

I generally see somebody I know on TV on Bloomberg/CNBC etc. once or twice a week. This sounds cool, until I remind myself that I see somebody I know on ESPN five days a week.

I usually have a cup around 10-10:30am and then maybe another by 2pm at the latest. Might switch that second one up for green tea every so often. Someone posted a thing here a couple years ago about how cortizol levels drop around those times so that's when I opted for it.

I only drink coffee when I’m hungover and can’t stay alert or after a massively slutty/disgusting lunch (think Sophie’s, Chipotle/Dos Toros, chicken parm hero, Chick-Fil-A, Shake Shack, massive amounts of Pho or Ramen.) I’ll have one cup to basically wake me up

I use boiled water and powdered coffee; to me, anything beyond that is luxury. Is the taste good? You get used to it; but if you drink it for the taste, we are not on the same page.

I take two tablespoons of powdered coffee in three fourth cup of water. Start my day with this. Take another round in the noon; 4-5 hours away from the first one. I try to avoid taking another one in the evening but if I see it turning into an allnighter, it's pretty much mandatory.

To balance it out - I meditate at least 15 minutes in a day. And take up a fruit salad here or there; I would like to go on a run every morning. But that hasn't happened yet.

I get why some people may call it an addiction. I am pretty sure I can put it down if I want to; but I have to get shit done and my system will take a lot of time to reach equivalent performance levels without it. Plus, I have been following the same routine for about two years now and haven't developed resistance.

2018: 12 shots of espresso, a cold brew or two, a hot coffee or two. I averaged ~1,200 mg of caffeine per day. I also got into Death Wish Coffee towards the end, which I believe was ~700mg a cup or something insane like that.

Early 2019: had a medical procedure because I tore my esophagus and had ulcers from too much coffee

Rest of 2019 and beyond: 0 cups of coffee.

Haha I read it in the appropriate voice too

All good. The human body is resilient and I feel fine now. Thankfully it was light tears and I stopped before it got more serious.

I only drink coffee after 10am to not ponder with my cortisol production and generally not after 12am. I used to drink up to 4/5 cups in that timeframe but that makes me feel a little bad in the afternoon so I cut down to 2 cups.

Start out the day with 16 oz of homemade cold brew
3-6 x 100 mg of caffeine pills throughout the day until 8 pm

I love coffee, especially the cold brew foam type drinks, but I like the convenience and knowing the dosage of caffeine in caffeine pills.

Stay caffeinated and stay woke my friends!

Currently at range anywhere from 3 to 6

single or double Espresso in the morning
perc coffee coffee mid day
perc coffee in the afternoon especially if carb dense lunch

Never really drink coffee past 4pm. Anyone go from pretty regular use like the above to none at all? What were the benefts?

One large cold brew around 9am - used to do a second cold brew around 2pm but have cut that out

6:30 am -- start the day off right
8:00 am -- Whenever I get to the office
10:00 am -- Keep the morning rolling
3:30 pm -- Pregame before I take on the kids when I get home

Every so often there will also be one at Noon and/or one around 8pm (if it's going to be a late night). If I do have one at 8pm, I do half-caff so I'm not staring at the ceiling at 3am.

Mind you -- this is down from the 7-8 cups a day I'd slug down in B School or as an engineering student.

12:30 - 1:30 PM: Fighting the lunchtime sleepies
3:00 - 4:00 PM: Trying to stay up during inevitable downtime

That's it

120-240mg each day but I do powered caffeine. I’ve cut down a lot recently too, was on the Redlines hard for a couple months.
