  1. I drink too much. Probably, on average, about 8-16 fluid ounces daily. This isn't just something that comes out of a dripper, either. We're talking about shots from my espresso machine, moka pot or high-test coffee piled high in my pour over set up. You have to love the laxative qualities and the stimulation from the caffeine is great, even if you're a bit resistant to it like me.

    How much coffee do you drink and when did you last have some?

      May sound like a kid, but I like cappuchino and cocoa much more than coffee. And I drink such on some occasions, like a cold morning or when there is no bread and there are some cookies in the house.

      I have quite a sweet tooth, and while I don't really crave chocolates and flavored candy, I would rarely turn them down when offered (but I don't take stuff from strangers, sorry rapists). Same goes with liquid. I like to dunk milk chocolate bars and cookies into them first hand, then when done with them, finish the cup.

      Tried some actual coffee while back. Much like beer, I was disgusted and never tried that again. I get it people need it for extra energy, but I am constantly pumped with energy so I don't really need that. However, if things get really rough, a Toblerone bar might be a fine choice for a little pick-me-up.

      fraggle, you've mentioned that highly-caffeinated enriched coffee before.. Overall can you say the effects were enough to make you intoxicated from caffeine? Or it was purely a more "efficient" way of consuming coffee since you were able to drink less because of the potency..? Obviously it might not have been enjoyable or useful to consume it, but I am curious about the side-effects.

      Actually I was drinking it for a while because I liked the taste. It has an incredibly smooth, chocolatey flavour to it. Almost all coffee has a sharp bitter (sour?) taste to it that I don't find pleasant, and for a long time I wasn't a coffee drinker because of that. BBotE instead is smooth and doesn't have that sourness.

      In terms of the effects it's obviously very strong stuff. Personally I don't feel like I experienced really strong primary effects (the usual jitteriness, being "hyper", etc.) - some people get this in extremes. I had a colleague who tried it and said he could "see through time" for the next half an hour for example. But my most recent experience of drinking it has made me wary of trying it again for a while for secondary effects I was starting to suspect it may have been having - screwing with my energy levels and mood, and leaving me crashing hard later in the afternoon.

      If you're curious I highly recommend getting a bottle and sharing some with friends. It lasts for over a month so you can easily drink your way through it, especially if you're sharing it. Maybe start with a smaller bottle or get one of the sampler packs. If you're stuck choosing a variety then Kona is a good all-rounder.
