At least it's better than Red Bull; it still has about half the caffeine of a cup of coffee and I can do without the added calories.
My Main beef with coffee other then it makes me freak out is that its hot!
I want a cold beverage not a hot one. Even skiing I want cold water to drink. Hot stuff stinks.
See, I know people who get hot chocolate instead of coffee... it's not the same!
Also, i have an awesome coffee maker with a temperature setting; I don't like my coffee radioactive either, so I keep it at the lowest temp. It's perfect.
If I keep myself to two cups in the morning, i'm good... more than that and I start feeling weird. I have a tendency to make a pot on the weekends and just keep drinking it until I feel like my heart is going to explode, so that's not the best idea. I guess there is a lot of conflicting research about the health effects of caffeine; some say it's fine in moderations, others say that a cup or two a day can actually be good for you; and of course, if you drink a lot of it, you're probably destroying your kidneys.
Also, i rarely go to Starbucks, but when i do, I consider it a special occasion. I think I'm the only yuppie in my town though; I don't drive a pickup truck, i tuck my shirt in to go to work, and I listen to NPR.
