I hated coffee as well. Way too bitter.
I found that if I used a really course ground it removed most of the bitterness.
I would add half and half (still do if panera, wont even purchase at Starbucks).
But I found an instant blend, slightly watered down, with 1 packet of splenda (no need for milk/cream).
But I can't drink what most people call coffee. My Russian friends call American Coffee "Coffee Juice", and they call what I drink a Second derivative of "Coffee Juice"... (We get darker liquid washing the stain from the cup, LOL).
To each their own. You are better off with the water.
My office has unlimited coffee available, and I have a 24 oz cup. It rarely gets emptied completely, but I refill it at least 8 times a day, often more. That doesn't include the full 10-cup pot I have in the morning before work, of course.
but on average... I use to get a double expresso with 2 cubes sugar and some milk.
That's my standard portion, from which I take 3 a day, sometimes more (depending on how soon I started or how much stress brings the day).
Trying to reduce, but not so successfull on it
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
Turns out 9 mugs of tea per day isn't normal , and that disregards the coffees I have just to start the old motor. The Mayo Clinic suggests closer to 4 cups of coffee or 8 cups of tea per day as a maximum safe limit[^]
So much for the cup that cheers but does not inebriate.
The amount of energy necessary to refute bullshit is an order of magnitude bigger than to produce it.

There's a fine line between crazy and free spirited and it's usually a prescription.
I'm currently unsupervised, I know it freaks me out too but the possibilities are endless.
As an avid tea drinker (green, several varieties of black, occasionally white or yellow) I try to keep my caffeine intake as low as possible, in my case that is 3-4 mugs a day.
It used be well over 450mg per day.
Yes, I'm Italian: a coffee right after the waking up, one coffee before starting to work, one coffee at the mid morning, one after lunch, one at the mid afternoon, one after dinner... And more as needed.
