Discussion on: Do you drink coffee while working?

Used to be a coffee fiend, and some days still am. Current research shows 4 cups of coffee a day is perfectly healthy, beneficial and safe. That is, regular cups of coffee btw. Drink it black all the way! Some days, I may opt for a cup or two of Death Wish Coffee, which has notably higher amounts of caffeine. I also rotate, after having a cup of coffee I have a cup of water, then maybe a cup of green tea. Growing up on coffee (literally, since about 5 years old), I find 2 to 4 cups to be optimal and more than enough, particularly if you want to avoid over-stimulation, increasing anxiety and sleep deprivation :)
