I drink coffee black. Used to drink it with cream and sweetener,
but learned to like it black. No coffee=breaking routine.

Use all things in moderation according to your capacity to stay healthy enough to use it.

I usually have one cup of coffee a day. Unfortunately, it is with cream and sugar.

I have at least a couple of cups a day -- sometimes more. I try to limit it somewhat because I do put milk (sometimes cream, if I'm feeling decadent) in it. But sometimes it's a good trade-off, if it is enough to keep me from eating something with more calories...

One cup in the morning for me - hazelnut with cream and sugar. Just the thought of it gets me out of bed. Sometimes one more cup at night. Studies show a little caffeine is actually good for you because of the antioxidents.

I have to have my coffee in the morning, I drink more at work then I do at home on the weekend, I sure fat free Vanilla creamer. I don't drink it at night anymore it keeps me awake must be because I am getting older!! I don't drink soda. So the rest of my fluids is water.

I just found the almond milk option for cereal, meals, etc. But I never thought of it for coffee. We usually use an expensive (to me) brand of flavored creamer but I am sure it adds a lot of calories. Will try the almond milk with my two large cups of coffee in the am now! (Maybe add some almond flavoring to it to increase the flavor and cut a few calories at the same time.

I drink 1 cup of a nonfat ice coffee or latte per day. I've started using my almond milk when I make it at home. Yum emoticon

LOVE coffee, but have to watch it because I need to add milk or cream. My breakfast cup (well, Venti cup from Starbucks) gets half-and-half, and that really helps me get thru to lunch without snacking so it's worth it. I use 2% (it's what they give us free in the fridge at the work) for my afternoon cup -- skim just doesn't do it for me in my coffee.

I Iove coffee, but I find I have to limit myself to one strong cup in the morning (and occasionally one espresso after a weekend dinner). If I don't, I tend to forget to drink water during the day.

One cup of good quality, strong, french-pressed black coffee every morning. Must be piping hot. It's the only one I will have all day, may as well be THE BEST Cup of coffee, make it worth it!

I drink my coffee in the morning while doing my SP reading. 2 cups. I used to do decaf but stopped because of the decaffeinating process (chemicals). Never drink it in the evening. That's usually herbal tea.

I used to drink several cups of coffee each day then I started having anxiety issues, which the caffeine made even worse so I completely stopped all caffeine intake for a time, now I drink only an occasional cup of decaf. It's a major comfort food for me but my major downfall w/ it is that I HAVE to have foo foo creamer in it!

I am a coffee nut!!!! I tend to get the flavored grounds and use Fat Free Vanilla Creamer in my coffee. Not other added sugars. The aroma of coffee just is a big ahhhhhhh for me. I am not sure if it is the flavors I am trying or the fact it is coffee, but it gives me such a boost in energy and emotionally. I know it sounds weird but it truly does. The kids or my husband notice when I'm bubbly, singing, and hyper, and they all ask me if I have been drinking coffee. I have to laugh because there is no hiding it from them. I will have 2 to 3 cups in the morning alone. I love my coffee hot or cold both are just great with me.

I have a fresh cup of coffee with creamer in the morning. If I go to a coffee shop to knit, which happens four times a week, I will either have a cafe au lait or a latte.

I enjoy coffee int he AM (or beginning of the shift as I work a fireman's schedule) but after 12:00 (either end of the clock), I also have had to stop with caffeine of all sorts. This has made it so I can manage my sleep reasonably.

I cannot answer your original question, about how many YOU should drink.

What I drink varies according to what I'm doing.
I have, however, switched to decaf after noon - just in case it impacts my sleep patterns.

My hubby & I often have a coffee together in the evening, so this is when the decaf really matters.

I tried to use almond milk my tea (because I drink my coffee black), and I don't think I like it - I think it's sweeter than regular milk/cream - and I don't sweeten my tea, so it alters the flavour to something I'm not fond of consuming. So, unless I go back to coffee cream for my tea, it will be herbal, green or black tea; no add-ins, for me, I think.

Hope those who switch to almond milk for their coffee are not disappointed - perhaps it's a personal thing

Wow never thought of having my coffee with almond milk. I will try that.

I usually have an expresso in the morning and occasionally a cafe con leche after dinner.

For all those out there taking medication for their thyroid, make sure to wait atleast an hour between meds and coffee.

I have 2 large mugs (about 30 oz total) in the morning. That's the only time of day I drink it and I just can't see giving it up- I make so many other sacrifices in my diet and my favorite time of day is the early morning when I'm the only person in the house awake.

I brew an organic product I buy from Hawaii and use stevia (truvia) and fat free half and half.

To add sweetness to coffee (or tea) use Stevia (aka President's Choice Truvia) Stevia is a plant and the leaves are used. I grew it once and the leaves are super sweet.
This is a natural sweetner unlike aspertame and splenda. It is NOT recommended for pregnant women, children or those who have a low blood pressure.
The box says that it's "Beneficial in the maintenance of health blood sugar and blood pressure levels.
I don't use it often but I have found that there is no aftertaste when I've used it sprinkled on fruit salad.

Here is a Healthy Beverage Guidelines article that covers how much coffee (and other beverages) you should drink per day:
. Short answer though, for unsweetened coffee is about 0-4 servings (0-32 ounces) per day.
