The Stereotype of Tech Support & Coffee - True?
I'm curious as to the truth of the stereotype of the IT Technician/Tech Support Analyst never being more then 5ft from a coffee pot, and getting through at least 5 mugs a day. So, I'm interested to see if you are all coffee fiends, and if you are, what's your "brand of choice" and daily intake figures?
I'm currently giving "Rocketfuel" with added Guarana a go and it is rather strong! I get through about 3/4 half-pint mugs of tea/coffee a day.

Sorry to break the "geek" stereotype, but I am a TEA man through and through
And it has to be PG Tips!

(The thanks was for the Dilbert )
I get through around 5 cups of coffee a day, and have at least one large can of Rockstar a day
EDIT: just thought I'd mention, I rarely drink coffee or energy drinks when I'm outside of work though - at home I'm a tea man

The "Thanks" is for your dedication to caffeine!

McDonalds coffee, Nescafe or the coffee pods. Our office kettle is within my arms reach, and i need a couple of cups to start the day.
MYTH - CONFIRMED (for me at least.)

Heyyyyy...there's just as much caffeine in tea! (Allegedly!)

My answer can be given in the form of a previous thread of mine ... How much is too much coffee? ... lol ...
In fact, I've just popped to Tesco at lunch time to buy some more filter coffee as I'd ran out! GAH!

Decaf here... ever since I had an overactive-thyroid.
One cup of 'real' coffee at morning break is a much caffeine as I can handle now.

I like both tea and coffee. We alternate between flavoured and non-flavoured ground coffee here - currently finishing off the last lot of rich hazelnut from Whittard's - yum! 3-5 cups during work is the average for me.

But I doubt it matches "at least" one can of Rockstar!

I don't drink Coffee or Tea at all. I drink water all day. So Myth Busted for me.

1/2 kilo tubs of Sainsburys Gold Blend instant here. We buy them when they're on offer as we go through far too much of the stuff to buy anything more exotic ;-)

Hate coffee. Drink the occasional cup of tea, but mostly stick to water or apple juice.
Why would someone drink coffee? Tastes like tar!

Why would someone drink apple juice, it tastes all fruity, eurgghhh

That all depends on the coffee - just like wine or beer, it's not one taste fits all!
