We try not to drink too much coffee because my boyfriend's dad has previously consumed so much coffee in a week that he went to the doctor with palpitations. Don't overdo it, guys! xD

I once made it my mission to make a cup of coffee with every mug in the house, in a day once. I was so ill.

god, we easily have two dozen mugs.  I would probably have to be hospitalized if it was all caffeinated, even though I take mine one part milk to two parts coffee (approx).

Yeah, totally don't do coffee, but I've done the over-caffeinated thing.  I have no idea how many pots of tea I had that afternoon (I was busy writing, and would make another when it was empty), but I couldn't stop shaking that evening, and my heart was beating so fast, it felt like it was going to explode at one point.  ..... might have combated it with some herbal teas to relax and calm my body down.

Don't over do the caffeine..... Scary stuff.

XPPP

I drank literally nothing but sugary black tea for half a year once. Also before that there was a loooot of tea. And diet coke. I kinda miss it! AND TEA SMELLS SO NICE........ never hit the energy drinks, but the strong sugary tea pretty much did the same thing anyway. XD

I really like coffee, but always with sugar and a bit of milk. I love the smell of coffee in the morning <3
But maybe what I love most is cappuccino - CAPPUCCINO IS HEAVEN! XD
I also like marocchino, which is an Italian mixture between coffee (espresso), dark chocolate and whipped milk *w*

That sounds lovely!

I don't go out of my way to drink coffee, but when I do, it usually has rather a lot of milk and sugar in it. 

I just had a chocolate truffle with a coffee filling that was rather depressing.  Coffee doesn't have to be so bitter.

The chocolate truffle sounds great! I adore chocolate *-* And a hot chocolate in the winter is the best thing in the world.
I can't drink plain coffee as well... I always add sugar and milk...

I'm loving the Girl Scout Cookies creamer by Coffee Mate *u*  for coffee at home I usually like a bottled creamer more than milk/sugar.

A bottled creamer? I've never tried it (and I've never heard of it before)!
I'm cookies-addicted. I should stop eating them.
(...I should) <3

they're very, very popular in the U.S.!  it's sort of like a heavy milk or light cream and it's quite sweet, so you wouldn't add another sweetener like sugar in with it.  comes in so many flavors but vanilla and hazelnut seem to be the most popular!  and peppermint during Christmastime!

but stale, bad-tasting coffee is also very popular in the U.S...  the major brands people buy for use at home are already ground (and have been ground for a very long time) and most people don't own a grinder or anything other than drip brewers.  you usually have to go to nice little coffee houses to get decent coffee. 

I have a drip brewer (easiest), french press, and used to have a stovetop percolator but I stopped using it because I'm lazy...
