    I started drinking coffee with cream when I turned 10, to emulate my parents. Never looked back and I have 2-3 cups a day.

    BP coffee in the morning and then 1-2 cups of black coffee or maybe with some heavy cream during the day.

    Couldn't envision my life without coffee.

    Might be the tannins in the tea. I can't drink tea on an empty stomach, either. No issues with coffee.

    I have the same issue with tea and the above is the conclusion I have come to as if I let tea overbrew it gets worse.

    It took me a long time to acquire a taste for coffee but now I love the stuff! I usually take a big mug and pour heavy cream into it until I can no longer see the bottom. I then grind my coffee beans and brew one of those little four-cup pots of coffee. When it's done, I fill the cup to a level where I can still carry it without spilling it all over me and take it to my desk. I rarely ever use the entire pot and depending on how much cream is in there, I usually use somewhere around 3 "official" cups of coffee (more like 1.5 using the cups that most of us own).

    Heavy cream is the best tasting for me. I've tried Bailey's creamer (it's crap but oh, it tastes good...just like Bailey's), milk, 1/2 and 1/2, other creamers, butter (Bulletproof style) but Heavy cream wins. I don't even use sugar anymore and that is a MAJOR achievement for me.

    I can't say that coffee gives me "energy". Having finally been diagnosed with ADHD during grad school, the caffeine really just works to focus my brain. If there are other health benefits to caffeine, that's awesome.

    I've never really understood this thing about caffiene reducing hunger- I was married to a man raised in poverty in India where feeding your family tea all day to ward off hunger was an important technique, so I guess it must work for some people. For me, I want something with my tea, so there is a purely ritual addiction, and then my tummy wants food to sooth the irritation.
    I love a strong concoction I've started making of green and black tea with full cream to dull the bitterness. I find it works better than coffee for energy, and wards off hunger for hours. Not that I'm trying not to eat, but it has that special effect if calorie intake is a concern.

    Cornwin1968, half and half taste like sugar water. Heavy cream is the real stuff. Makes strong coffee, chai, and different teas taste rich and delicious.

    Ode to caffeine.

    I love my coffee. I drink it black. In my fatty days, I was a Starbucks frappachino (sp?) junkie, then I found Dutch Bros., and I was hooked on Cocomo's.
    Now, I have Dutch Bros about once a month or less, as a treat, but I stick to my morning coffee. I drink coffee until about 10 am, and if I am feeling frisky, will brew a pot to have iced coffee (again black) on warm afternoons.
    With all the fast food restaurants jumping on the foo foo coffee wagon, I have a hard time getting a iced coffee on the road, so then I just have an unsweetened iced tea instead (McLosers, sells them for a buck).
    Coffee is in one week, and out the next, but for me it's a daily dose that I love!!!

    It seems that finally, after over two and a half decades of being addicted, that I have finally managed to kick it.

    I don't care what health benefits it has.

    Interestingly, I have never experienced any of the effects of coffee (neither the positive nor negative ones). Drinking coffee has never reduced my hunger, has never made me more mentally alert or awake, never given me energy, or improved my mood. I have also never experienced any of the side effects most people report when they stop drinking it. I feel exactly the same when I drink coffee as when I don't drink it.

    I have to admit that I'm a bit jealous of all these people getting energy boosts from coffee. Sometimes I'm tempted to think it's an Emporer's New Clothes situation, where no one actually gets energized from it, but because everyone is saying they do all the time, people have come to believe it
