I'd prefer espresso unless some chain café offers french press coffee.

French press coffee with heavy cream and brown sugar is an indulgence that I love.  Life is too short for crappy drinks, especially coffee.  Usually, though, I have Puerto Rican espresso with scalded milk.

Bravo

For some reason I am shy about ordering espresso at Starbucks or similar places.. I need to get over it.

Does it really containt that much caffeine that it has some effect? Or is it just placebo?

To be honest, I can't really tell. Seems to be enough to not have to drink another coffee. Sometimes I get sick from coffee (other times it's the best thing).

I've always assumed caffeinated sodas are just scam in terms of caffeine. But then again I'm not caffeine-addict so I can't really tell whether it eases caffeine withdrawal.

It's a bit weird that I haven't gotten addicted into caffeine since couple of years I used to drink 6-10 cups of coffee on daily basis. I've never had a headache or anything due to not drinking coffee.

I believe in some cases (probably not yours) you don't know if addiction is there until you try to quit something forever. Temporarily stopping might work, but it's not the same as saying you are able to not have something at all. This is what I found out about my drinking problem of the past. I was not the worst alcoholic, but then again I couldn't truly live without alcohol either. Actually, the problem was getting quite bad if it was for me getting more serious about finding God at the right time. Now, with coffee, I am an addict, but I don't drink huge quantities, just constantly. I don't really want to quit right now because I also need coffee; I couldn't care less if my body is addicted as a consequence. Smiley

IIRC I spent some lent completely without coffee. Not a problem. I did drink tea though which probably contained caffeine too. It's just that many people seem to talk that they need coffee every day in order to wake up in the morning, in order not to get a headache and so on. I've never had that kind of problems.

Maybe your body is not that sensitive to coffee. I was like that before, even towards alcohol, but nowadays I am sensitive to any drop of anything that enters my body. A drop of alcohol would give me an instant hangover for a day without any exaggeration. But it's complex; there are probably many factors at work here such as an illness and my ascetic struggle.

I've never had such problems either.  Many times I'll have an espresso or black coffee at night and go straight to bed.  Other times, I'll go weeks without coffee.

I envy you. Earl Grey for me. A scotch sounds good right now. I wonder if alcoholics in Scotland put scotch in their Earl Grey like American alcoholics slip bourbon into their coffee?

I had coffee. Espresso in American English . But sipping it at my usual hangout I had a moment of general doubt both about myself and humans at large; they were having a so-called slow bar at the back where a bunch of people were tasting all these different sorts if green tea. As if one an tell the difference. And as I know the barrista , he saw me and invited me to sit down with them savor all those green tea varieties . I told them that to me all green tea just taste like water infused with hay, of the sort used to grow cultures of amoebas. Or is it paramecium ?

Almost all green tea is grassy in some sense, but most people it brew it wrong in America. The water is too hot and they steep the leaves too long and a lot of the more noxious tannins prevail or something like that.

That being said. I just finished a drink which consisted primarily of parsley and kale. This health stuff is going to be the death of me.
