    How does one get the caffeine out of a bean anyway? It's gotta be some kind of toxic chemical wizardry or something purely evil to create such an abomination of nature.

    I have to drink half caf coffee as a compromise. My wife can't take the regular caf coffee, she starts shakin' like a dog passin' a peach pit. We drink the Maxwell House half caf, it's not bad. If we go out to a restaurant I get regular, she gets decaf. The things we do for love LOL.

    I switched a few years ago because of issues with anxiety and insomnia and going off the leaded stuff pretty much ended it.

    Probably could have just cut down, but honestly I don't mind the decaf.

    I have been known to have non-alcoholic beer too, usually when I was the DD.

    My wife rarely drinks regular coffee -- she says it made her irritable and she slapped the kids. I say it was the kids! Anyhowdy, she drinks this stuff.

    No coffee in dat! Barley and chicory. I think it takes like old rope, but to each his own.

    If it needs a flavor boost add 1/8 tea spoon of instant cocoa per 4 cup size pot.

    Because of health issues I have had to cut back on caffeine. I make my own 50/50 blend coffee at home and keep it to about 3 cups a day. Keep a pitcher of decaf sweet tea in the fridge, but I try to watch my intake of that due to blood sugar issues. Getting old sucks.

    My Wife gave me a back rub and immediately after one of the most wild rides of my life. There is no correlation between near beer and Decaf. Near beer is a funny tasting drink that doesn't get you buzzed. THe only thing Decaf doesn't do is make you stay awake, buzz in your head and be alert. Decaf still tastes like a friggen cup of coffee. Nice in the am or pm and after being a coffee drinker so long, it still seems to relax me without the caffine. If you love coffee and can afford a bit more. Drink KONA DECAF! My favorite!

    Why would you drink coffee if you don't want the caffeine. It's like eating meatless steaks.

    Decaf is an abomination! :eek:

    Is kopi luwak vegan? It merely [Mod: merely!] passes thru a civet cat, so the civet isn't harmed, but is it exploited? Discuss.

    decaf is just coffee for people who don't want the buzz, but enjoy frequent peeing..

    Never really cared for civets, they've not done much for mankind and haven't really been keeping up their end of the bargain. They make nice hats though...

    Pretty much Karo syrup sweet. I can't drink it... The sugar gives me heartburn.
