Hey spud, you need at least one more choice before I can vote. I don't drink coffee, never have and never will. Tea and Mountain Dew are my source of caffeine and wisdom. :D

absolutely caf

The best coffee I had overthere was at Tim Hortons but it also might be I just hungered for it at that moment.

The coffee here in the Netherlands is generally stronger than in the US.

Do you guys have Senseo and Nespresso machines there too?

You all that don't drink coffee are the lucky ones. Don't start - it'll take hold of you and never let go. :)

(Haha, I write this as Vienna sings, "who are you, taking coffee no sugar" in my ear... now, that's something I can't do. I can go without cream just fine, but sugar is essential.)

Another "non-drinker" vote here. My late mother used to be a constant coffee drinker (or so it seemed) and I think I "rebelled" by never picking up the habit.

It's my one morning can of Coke (not diet, sorry, Ang Mo) or Dr. Pepper for my daily caffeine dose.

Another non-coffee drinker. I generally try to stay away from caffeine and soda in general. Occasionally I'll drink a diet cola, and I take supplements that have green tea extract in them. I love the smell of coffee though. I especially love the smell of the coffee isle in the grocery store when I am visiting Puerto Rico.

Another non-coffee drinker who likes the smell of coffee. Not enough, though, to tell you whether I prefer the smell of decaf or regular! My drink of choice is water - half because we have such good water here, and half because I'm cheap!

"I don't drink coffee, I take tea my dear." - Englishman in New York (Sting)

I've always loved that line, not only because I love the song but because I don't drink coffee either. I generally avoid coffee or sodas, usually it's fruit juices, tea, or simply water.

Diet coke is the brew that is true!!! A sodariffic anti-depressant if ever there was one.
--the only adults who are never depressed: chuckleheads, California surfers, and fundamentalist Christians who believe they have had a personal encounter with Jesus and are saved once and for all. Would you trade your depression to become any of these?

My first coffee (usually an americano) of the day is caf. The next um ... several? are decaf.

Otherwise I drink water, beer, and the occasional mixed drink. Just can't get in to soft drinks/sodas/pop (depending on where you're from).

Another non-drinker here. I'm also caffeine-immune, as apparently Vienna is! I do like the smell of coffee and will sometimes have a mocha or some other ridiculously sweet concoction that more closely resembles a candy bar than coffee, but my preferred drinks at cafes are chai lattes and hot chocolates. And since moving to England I drink tea pretty much every day.

For a time in college I got into the habit of drinking caffeine-free Diet Coke. Everyone I knew thought I was mad. No caffeine OR sugar?! What's the point?! :roll:

Oh I'm with you. I can't drink non-diet soda at all. Tastes like syrup and puts me into sugar shock. I'm quite tolerant of caffeine, as well, so I too would go caffeine-free because there wouldn't be any point to going regular.

Oh and for the sake of scientific completeness in the data here ... I used to be a hard-core half-and-half user in my coffee. Not a lot of it, but whole milk wasn't the same and skim was a joke. I switched to soy about a year ago and haven't looked back. No sugar. Unless it's really bad coffee.
