   2 mugs black each morning. For some reason the "official" size for coffee markings on the pot are for 6 oz cups while most mugs are 12 oz so if the pot says 8 cups you will only get 4 mugs.


I figure that back in the day, they didn't have as much coffee, so they had smaller servings.  Now in the McDonald's era where coffee is plentiful, they started making bigger mugs but the measurements are still the same.  Just a rough guess, but I can almost guarantee 1/32" accuracy.  ;D
Boy, back in my day..

I make mine in a SS perk on the stove. 4 cups of water, 3 tablespoons grinds. I buy a brand by a national store chain here. I don't buy some of the cheaper stuff like Maxwell, no taste to it. Add a tiny bit of sugar (maybe 1/3 of a teaspoon) and a good dose of cereal cream (10 % MF). No half and half for me (oil and sugar slosh?) I'd rather have the real stuff. :D  Anyway, 2 - 3 cups from Royal Albert fine china (tastes a lot better) in the morning with breakfast and that's it for the day. ;) Besides we have lots of china cups between mother and uncle collecting for 40 or 50 years. LOL

  I remember an old friend of my dad telling how to make "cowboy coffee" in a galvanized bucket, add 1 gal of water, 1 lb of coffee, and a horse shoe, boil on the camp fire till the horse shoe floats.   :o  I also remember him saying never let the truth get in the way of a good story.

When I was working for the man, I had a big mug, probably 16oz.  I would drink a couple cups in the morning.  I was having trouble staying awake at work so I drank more.  I was up to 7 or 8 mugs a day and this was extra strong French Roast.  I would dose off at home if I sat down.  Turned out I had Sleep Apnea.  Got a CPAP and now I don't drink coffee anymore! :D

BLACK, six scoops per pot, Duncan Donuts blend, one to three pots a day (before noon).  Sometimes drink it at night but usually follow Dang's P.M. procedure.  I never really drank coffee until I quit dipping snuff several years ago.

You wanna real buzz before you go to sleep?  Take some coffee grounds, put em in your lip like dip, but drink the spit.  It kinda gets all over the place, unless you wrap it in something like cheesecloth, but it'll wake you right up, and about an hour later you'll come down and sleep like a rock.   ;)

i have fond memories of drinking coffee with my granddad when i was a kid. i stayed with them alot growing up and it was 3 or cups with breakfast and that was it for the day. it was really strong and black.  :) after drinking the cup down to the last little bit  where the ground had settled we would pour the coffee and grounds on a biscuit. that with home cured ham and eggs made a fine breakfast ;D

I remember having a cup of coffee before breakfast, two or three more with then one or two at work. I was then given a chocolate coated bean, (those are good). About a half hour later I was like Elmer Fudd on helium then crash landed, couldn't keep my eyes open. :D

I had a coffee bean crusted rib eye steak a couple months ago. Certainly different, not bad.
