I thought this thread was about how much coffee individuals drink, not how little.

Eighteen cups +/-, I've cut back a bit.

LOL! My wife's sister would fill the cone of a single cup coffee maker to the brim with Community Coffee, pack it down like espresso and than call the resulting cup of mud one cup of coffee. She had multiple cups. For some strange reason she was a very talkative and energetic person.

I'll take a cup of green tea though, Maybe 2 on a cold/nasty/lazy day...
I accidentally ate coffee flavored chocolate when i was little and was grossed out for the proceeding 30yrs. I was a huge tea drinker, up to 5 cups per day (my cups are about 3 times the size of normal cups)

Probably 3 cups of Bunn drip coffee from mourning to afternoon. Wife & I finish the pot.
Lately I've been making decaf in the evening with a small old stove top aluminum percolator cus I think it's kinda fun to do, and the bolder percolated taste make the decaf taste less like decaf. I don't usually drink it all.

None. Quit drinking coffee 35 years ago and don't miss it. Caffeine was causing me problems and my prior habit of 3-4 cups per day of strong coffee was the primary source. Took several weeks of withdrawal symptoms to get over it. It's a stronger substance than a lot of people recognize.

Have changed over to herbal or decaf teas, but even then my consumption is a cup or two per day, maximum. Otherwise, plain water is the beverage of choice these days … so that means no soda's, too (another big source of caffeine for many people).

Usually, two per day. One in the morning and then one in the afternoon. My afternoon drink can be coffee or a caffeine drink:: latte, mocha, flat white, cappuccino or a caramel macchiato.
