I only really have it when I'm really tired because it always makes me jittery and I feel even more stressed! But it does its job in keeping me awake and tbh it tastes amazing :P

Tbh cappuccinos are alright and I'll buy one whenever I feel like one, (after I was convinced by some people to try one >.>) but I'd still prefer tea over coffee any day. :P
That being said, I try not to rely on caffeine, because every time I have it, (coffee or otherwise) I have the energy akin to that of a 5yo child on red cordial. :)

I used to drink coffee with heaps of sugar and with milk when I was younger.  ;D But I haven't drank coffee for years, since I thought it would be bad for me, since I already get my daily dose of caffeine from cola and chocolate. Like everything, coffee is good in moderation, but if you drink excess amounts, it becomes harmful.

What type of coffee have you had?


I'm not sure, once the surge of caffeine hits you, it's like being supercharged.

No wonder so many people use it as an artificial substitute for sleep.

Yes, I'd rather spend my unhealthy food points on chocolate cake, which interestingly enough tastes rather nice with a spot of coffee powder mixed in.

So I guess the invention of coffee was not entirely bad.

I completely agreee with you. Chocolate>>>>>>>>>>>>>Coffee. So I'd rather have my daily intake of caffeine eating chocolate or something nice, than having to overload my coffee with sugar to make it drinkable.

^See, that's where Harry isn't very clever. Hermione would never have made such a mistake.

I have one coffee a day, in the morning. However it really dries my mouth up so I limit it to one.

If this was a 'Choccie milk v. coffee' thread, i'd go with choccie milk anyday of the week.

P.s - Coffee without any sort of sugar is shite.

Well since the topic is your thoughts on coffee, I think it fair to present infinitely superior alternatives for those of us who aren't literally tasteless ;)

Is this... is this going to be a thing?

Because I feel the ATAR Notes Forums would become particularly tense. ;D
