Right, sitting here on night shift I was thinking about the how people have their Coffee. Cause I could use 1 right now :)

So...How do you have it and how many do you do per day?
Does your style change through the day or do you stick to the same type every time?

My family are from that small spec below Italy boot and we sort of follow the Italian trends where they don’t have milk in their coffee after 11am...so for me its strong long blacks and about 3 a day..The last one being about 4pm

If I don't have about 2 cups in the morning, I'll need a nap about 4pm.

So, I'll wake up, make a (small, 4-cup) pot of the cheapest, gnarliest, drip coffee I can...and I'll enjoy it more than you :)

+1 on the no milk in it after 11. I heard about that and now have adopted it. The Italians and Sicilians know thier sh1t.

I have a nice capuccino in the morning and an espresso in the afternoon. I only use Illy espresso.

Black, usually about 3 cups in teh am, maybe 1 at lunch, and usually 1 around dinner time. Roast depends on my mood, but I usually go for med-dark roasts.

Daily doses of strong black coffee, a couple of cups (mugs, really) in the AM to load the pipelines, then more as desired throughout the day. The espresso machine gets a workout as well, but I don't count those because they're such tiny cups. I try not to have any after 4:00, unless I'm going out, so I can get to sleep.

Got one of those and I like it a whole bunch. The no clean-up thing seals the deal as I'm the only coffee drinker in the house and I hate grinders/filters, etc. The misses uses the milk frother for chai. 2 or 3 pucks in the morning, usually as espresso and rarely as a latte, and green tea for lunch/afternoon.

I can do iced or hot anytime.

I'm down to 2-3 cups a day. I start with a cold brewed iced when I wake up, and then usually get a hot at the office caf.

I can drink more when the need arises.

When Delicate Flower and I go to get coffee, it's a giant cup of espresso (4-6 shots of espresso over ice, depending on the person at the machine).

Then there's the tureen of Diet Coke at lunch.

2 regular in the morning and 2 decaf in the evening. I just put 1/2+1/2 in it. I like all kinds of roasts. My favorite variety is 100% Kona. If I do an espresso drink, it's usually a cafe mocha, but I also love a good straight cappuccino.

Black. French Pressed. Anything from 1-4 cups a day but I'll never have 4 again after I started talking really fast the other time and became 'hyper' too.

Sometimes, days without too.

If I'm drinking anything but African I put some half and half in it. I usually take stuff made with African beans black.

I just had a late afternoon espresso made with Arabian Mocha Java.
