    There are a lot of drinks with caffeine out there. Many people use them to wake up in the morning, get through the day, or stay focused in the evening. Which is your favorite or preferable caffeinated beverage?

    I drink decaffeinated coffee because I feel like I can drink more of it without as many ill-effects.

    My favourite tea is Earl Grey.

    I like sugar-free Cola drinks, and I'm indifferent between the decaffeinated variety and the caffeinated kind. My favourite Cola drink is Pepsi Max, followed by Coke Zero.

    I prefer tea over coffee unless my office has the Belgian chocolate-flavored coffee available. Coca-Cola during lunch is also a contributor and a favorite.

    EDIT: Cross-post, Earl Grey is my favorite too!

    I'm obviously fond of coffee -- black, sweet, and preferably taken with a scone or jam biscuit -- but I drink more tea. I drink coffee at breakfast, water throughout the day, and tea with meals. That used to be sweet tea, but I've been sharply reducing my sugar intake.

    Mine too, and very much so! I started drinking tea instead of coffee because of the havoc that coffee was playing with my digestive system, and because I rather suddenly developed a taste for black teas.

    I can still appreciate the occasional black coffee, but it's no longer a staple of my diet.

    None. Caffeine gives me terrible migraines, even in relatively small amounts.

    Early grey, hot, black.

    I stopped drinking coffee a half a year ago or so and have cut out all pop + energy drinks maybe 2 months ago.

    Feeling great as a result, miss caffeine somewhat.. I consume far less of it now and have noticed that I'm a bit more groggy in the mornings, but far more energetic at later stages of the day.

    Caffeine is such a weird and socially accepted *addictive* drug. Virtually every working adult in the western world is addicted to this stuff! Shouldn't we all be going into rehab?

    Coffee. I roast my own beans which are usually Kenya AA.

    But I also drink a lot of iced tea, unsweetened since living in NYC, and Coca Cola. The latter frequently has Captain Morgan added for flavor.

    I drink soda (any soda, especially root beer), but not for the caffeine.

    i recently kicked a caffeine habit. there were zero withdrawal symptoms. it's not addictive. at best a little bit habit-forming.

    anyway, i used to drink caffeinated soda, mostly cheap supermarket brand cola and the occasional cup of coffee.

    Red Bull. I drink plenty of coffee and Mountain Dew: Livewire as well, but Red Bull is my signature favorite drink.

    Cola, but I'm not wedded to any brand as long as it's not diet.

    Caffeine is very dependency-forming, not addictive. I dislike the taste of most caffeinated drinks (by coincidence, I assume), and have no need for a stimulant or for wasting my money when water is effectively free.
