    I drink 36 oz., or 4 1/2 cups. It's always black, no additives. I usually don't drink it in the afternoon, I'm more of a morning coffee person.

    Lately I've been wanting one more cup, so now I'm getting it up to 6. :neutral: I am thinking about cutting back, maybe 2 or 3 cups in the morning.

    How many cups of coffee do you drink per day?

    I drink 2 1/2 cups or so out of one of those little 4 cup makers every morning. I guess that would translate into ~15 oz. I used to put half and half in my coffee but now I use skim milk. If I need something hot later in the day it's almost always tea.

    About the equivalent of 5, most through the morning, a cup about 4:00 PM.

    And after dinner if we eat out - at a place that has good coffee.

    3 in the morning, 2 or 3 after dinner.

    None between 9:00am and 6 or 7pm.

    Fall asleep on the couch at around 11:30pm, 3 or 4 times a week.

    2 black in the A.M. Occasionally 1 with a little half and half around 2:00.

    My wife took a break from coffee for 6 months. She thinks it helped her reset her clock, so to speak.

    Two cups of black coffee in the morning, but once in awhile Ill have one in the afternoon if my butt is draggin'.

    I used to work weekly rotating shifts and on graveyard shift it, would be over a dozen coffees, plus caffeine pills to stay awake at 4:00 am.

    Thank goodness I don't have to do that anymore. It did take quite a while to wean myself off the caffeine addiction.

    Anywhere from 2-6 cups of varying sizes. First thing in the morning and any time of day after. As a matter of fact, if I'm watching TV at night and notice coffee still in the pot from earlier in the day, I'll pour it into a glass and have iced coffee. I'm not ashamed.

    What are we defining as 'cup'? 8 ounces?

    3 - but the way I make it, one of my cups is about 3 of someone else's. I have no skin on my tongue.

    One grande (16 oz) Starbucks (or equivalent) in the morning. The wife likes Starbucks, so we have a ritual of going to Starbucks every morning before we go our separate ways. If we don't get coffee together I go to Dunkin Donuts instead. I will occasionally have another in the afternoon or in the evening, if it is a late night. But, generally if I am going to have caffeine after noon, it is tea. It is easier on my stomach and won't keep me up.

    How many ounces is a Mr Coffee carafe at the 9 cup level? :confused: I pretty much make a pot every day. The way my coffee grinds work, I only fill to the 9 cup line, so I guess that's about 45 ounces if 10 cups = 50 oz per what I found on the internet.

    I try to get my coffee drinking done by noonish. However, a couple of my glaucoma meds have drowsiness as a side effect so I've been partaking of a mid afternoon-ish cup and was in fact thinking of having one when i saw this thread.

    no sugar or sweetener. I put real ground cinnamon in the basket, drip brew. Half and half in the morning, black in the afternoon. Lately coffee without cinnamon just doesn't taste right anymore.

    I split the carafe so that I have some in the morning when I get up. I nuke the first cup or two, make the new pot, have another cup or two, leave the rest for the next day. I hate not having any waiting in the morning.

    Yeah, that is an average cup. A large Starbucks is 16 oz. or 2 cups.
