I might be fast... stays with me for quite a while!

I drink it mainly to enjoy but the caffiene boost is sometimes a great bonus. does that happen to other coffee drinkers too? to drink for the taste but also are conscious on its caffiene effect too?

At a guess - as many as 99.9% of people are sitting down while drinking coffee and I’m one of them
And for me I think it’s a relaxant

Yeah that is interesting... I just don't get a buzz from coffee, and yeah definitely drink it while relaxing, and enjoy coffee for coffee.

That being said, if I have coffee anytime past 5:30pm I tend to struggle to sleep (yep, 5:30pm for some reason hehe).

I used to drink at least 3 double shots a day and felt the same, but then if all of a sudden I don't drink coffee one day, I will feel quite tired and headachey. And I've gotten incredibly bad headaches at some breaks...

I'm now planning little phases of a couple of days of no coffee, just to reset things anyway hehe. And wean myself off slower rather than cold turkey. But yeah, I don't drink it for that purpose (as a drug/performance enchancer/relaxer)

For me it's a heart-starter in the mornings.  I have a thing called Addison's Disease and the coffee fills the gap between my being awake and the Cortisol taking effect.  Also, I love the taste like I love wine, scotch and beer... but those things aren't appropriate first thing in the morning ;)

I'm definitely one who prefers to savour my coffee, always have been and never for caffeination purposes...  ;)
I just love great coffee and try to squeeze out as much enjoyment as I can from each cup.  ^-^

I definitely get a kick out of caffeine mere lolly water will.not do ! I start my day with a latte after breakfast each morning immediately followed by another one usually home roasted and I'll have coffee out fairly regularly but not if I've had two at home already

and o hardly ever have coffee after lunch as I have trouble sleeping otherwise

but two in the morning kick start my day quite nicely!

I can have coffee at night and generally have my last cup about 8.30 / 9.00pm
Does not affect my sleep but with my job I go to sleep around midnight

But just like Mal I like to savour the coffee and chase flavour in my roasting and blending
