Has coffee taken over?

  1. So how many of you HATED coffee before starting nursing school or before pre- reqs but now find yourself running for it and finding it a necessity to stay awake? Can I say "Moi"!!!:spin:

    I have to admit that the taste for coffee (veeerrrrryyyyyy flavored Starbucks type blend) has grown on me since I began nursing school.

    But I much prefer an ice cold refreshing mountain dew to kick my butt in gear early in the morning.

    For my caffeine needs, I have a preference for either Coca-Cola or Pepsi.

    Sorry, it's Jamba Juice with a boost of energy. Not a clue what the "enegy" is, but it works!

    Not into coffee in the last. (gahhhhhhhh)

    I can't stand the taste of black coffee. But put some whole milk and some chocolate in it and I'm there :hatparty: MMMMMM MOCHA. The Blue Moon at 39th and Lake Street is the bomb:roll

    I have always loved coffee, my consumption of it increased and will probably continue to next semester

    I was a coffee drinker before nursing school, however, I can say with assurance during times of reading that big med-surg text my coffee drinking tripled and quadrupled. I should have just infused it in my veins, that's how much I needed to stay awake.

    I LOVE coffee! I love Lattes. But hardly anyone in the Southwest (including Starbucks) knows how to make good lattes! I came from the Northwest, where coffee is an art form. Sigh. Even though good coffee is hard to find, I still make the sacrifice here in the Southwest and drink it constantly. I haven't had this much coffee, however, since the last time I was a student.

    Coffee???? COFFEE????? WHERE???????

    I am a coffee FANATIC, though I very rarely will actually drink it black, unless it's a certain brand, perhaps. I frequent Starbucks WAY more than I can afford!

    I love coffee, but I just don't get the Starbucks thing. $5 for a cup of coffee??? What is it about Starbucks that makes it worth the price? I've had one cup of Starbucks coffee and it was so strong it made me think of Lisa Douglas's coffee.

    Not for me.....I'm a tea girl all the way. But it needs to be real tea, good strong stuff Lipton or similar just won't do it.

    Late nite studying calls for a big pot of strong tea :-)

    Peace,
