Caffeine doesn't give you energy, it tricks your body into thinking that it isn't tired by blocking adenosine receptors in your brain (it doesn't improve your reflexes or tracking abilities, for instance). If you can wake up and be up and alert, that's great, but those of us who refrain from bellowing "who dares disturb my slumber?" only because we don't have the energy for it need some chemical assistance.
It also takes two or three hours for a caffeine hit to take effect, so some rely on the boost it gives when the early morning energy boost starts to subside.20
Usually in the afternoon but sometimes I will drink it in the morning or at night. It depends on when I get up, how tired or well rested I am, and whether I have to stay up late to do something important like study for an exam or finish an assignment. Just because people get up in the morning doesn't mean they're well-rested. They may have only gotten a few hours of rest or they pulled all-nighters10
Call me insane.. I need my coffee first thing in the morning.. Not everyone wakes up well rested, not everyone sleeps well at night or through the night... The days I don't drink coffee in the morning, are the days I look like I have narcolepsy😴😴 can't stay awake lol40
What Girls & Guys Said
It's probably not healthy, but I do like drinking it later at night, because then I wake up earlier in the morning. Though, most days I drink it in the morning. They've always got some at work, and it's free. I used to date a girl and we'd hang out until 4am, pop in a 24 hour diner for coffee and toast and I thought that was the coolest.11
I drink it almost exclusively for the taste, it does not really help me feeling more rested or stay awake, if I am tired only sleep works :D coffee in that case just make me feel sick. Though, I do have trouble falling asleep if I drink a lot or too late. So mostly I drink in the morning or afternoon. Now and then a single cup in the evening if I did not have any earlier in the day.10
Most commonly in the morning for me as a pick-me-up and sometimes before working out as a pre-workout. I've never been the type to wake up so nicely in the mornings though even as a boy. It takes me like an hour or two to fully wake up and become alert unless I accelerate it with coffee. I tend to become the most energized and alert around the afternoon or night.10
Might I suggest waking up before noon some day and re-evaluating the whole “coffee thing” after maybe getting a j o b and moving out on your own, and thus giving your poor coffee drinking parents a well deserved break? I mean they get it, they wouldn’t survive a day without that stuff coursing through their veins. It’s their life blood and without it they wouldn’t be able to work 80 hour weeks plus feed clothe and care for some ungrateful kid who’s already old enough to drink and vote but yet still too young apparently to catch the hint that mom and pop may wanna have a little private whoopie time before their stuff is covered in dust and cobwebs but that ain’t gonna happen until the parasites get their own digs.0
I'm not a coffee drinker... but I used to drink iced coffee with a best friend of mine during school and college years... and it would always be during the afternoons, evenings at most12
I'm a night owl and most productive during night, so a cup or two of coffee is always a bliss
but other than night time anytime is good too10
I drink regular coffee in the morning, maybe a liter or so, but I sure do enjoy a quad shot black espresso mid-afternoon!10
Afternoon because I wake up late, & when I wake up early I'm probably too lazy to make coffee. Though both morning and afternoon are good.10
If I have almond milk at home, I'm willing to drink it morning, noon and evening. My mother can drink coffee almost before bedtime. By the way, she sleeps very well.10
I love coffee but I've been avoiding it. Because I'm getting a little nocturnal so drinking coffee when I wake up somewhere at around 11am might give me trouble sleeping if I have to try to sleep early.10
I start in the morning and drink it all day.10
Morning and 1 cup in the early afternoon. Any later and I'll be wide awake all night.10
I drink my coffee in the morning but I have to take my time drinking it
I'm a typical man who likes to what they call Nurses His Coffee LOL10
I find cardio to be more effective but if I get low on steam then afternoon10
Girl, you’re crazy. I start brewing the second I am up.22
In the morning. I feel like it does nothing for me when I drink it later in the day, for some reason.10
I usually start work around 5 am, need some sort of kickstart. But I’ll still drink coffee all day too10
When I wake up as well as right through the working day so 9am to 8pm probably about 6 cups a day10
I have an essential tremor that is aggravated by too much caffeine, but I can usually get away with a cup of coffee when I wake up.10
For me there is no time of day I just drink it because I like the taste. And I love it at all points in a day.10
I make 24 oz of coffee in my French press first thing in the morning. I pour it into two 12 travel mugs and sip from them throughout the morning until they are gone.
I buy 5 lb bags of ground, dark roast robusto Cafe Justo coffee at a time on-line. It is 100% shade grown and organic, harvested and processed by a co-op owned by the indigenous people.
I put three measuring scoops into the press and use my own pure well water.
When I pour coffee into my travel mugs, I often add a measured teaspoon worth of Equal Exchange hot coco powder to each 12 oz.
When the coffee is fresh and hot, I add maybe an inch of cold whole milk to cool it off.
When the first pot of coffee is gone, I add one more measuring scoop of coffee to the grounds that are still in the pot and pour in another 24 oz of water.
So on a typical day, I drink 48 oz of coffee over a period of maybe eight hours.
