    Just quit a month ago. Before that, I had one 12oz. cup daily, brewed with freshly-ground single origin beans that I roasted at home every week. Loved drinking it, but not good for my sleep/energy.

    I've been wanting to try BPC for around a year or two, but I love black coffee too much. I roast and grind my coffee fresh - putting anything else in it feels like I'm tainting it. :(
