Do you drink coffee throughout the day in the summertime? I Do and my friends and family all look at me like i'm crazy or something and they tell me that coffee is only supposed to be drank in the mornings and especially only in the mornings when summer is in. Is this weird? I just get the urge sometimes to have a cup of coffee and because it's summer shouldn't make a diffrence right? yall let me know what you think.

Well I think it's silly that they think it should only be drank in the mornings. I very rarely drink coffee on a morning. I dont find I need it to wake up. I drink it more for the taste than any benefit. I maainly drink mine during the day but not every day. I prefer chilled coffee to hot especially during Summer because it is more refreshing.

No it isn't weird. lol I drink coffee in the mornings, during the summer, I don't drink it so much. I do however, drink coffee if I am out with my daughter and we are by a Starbucks! I do NOT pass up that! A few weeks ago I went to wal-mart, my daughter and her fiance wanted to eat, I wasn't hungry, so I got a cup of iced coffee and an apple pie, and that was around 5pm, so you are not the only one who drinks coffee during the day. My dad drank it all the time. lol I was a kid and didn't understand why he did that, but now I do. He liked it!

I also drink coffee with sugar usually after a meal about twice a week, lunch time in particular. And I only get to do this here in the office, In fact, I have just eaten my lunch which consisted of rice and viand and I just drank coffee, too. I also did this yesterday. Here in our part of the world, it isn't summertime. But my personal preferences on drinking coffee do not depend on the time; like you said, summertime. Even if it's hot, I do drink coffee sometimes. I do agree that some people find it weird but personally, I really don't care. My primary reason for drinking coffee after lunch time or summertime is to have adequate fluids in my body and I usually do this when my viand is dry or without soup. Several months ago, my officemate mentioned a recent study about the positive effects of drinking hot beverage after a meal. In the study, it states that coffee dissolves fatty particles ingested or eaten and helps flush away fats. So, it should be good to the health somehow. However, just yesterday, I read one mylotter's post regarding a cancer update. Included in the foods to be hot on the list which is not good for a cancer patient or to prevent cancer, one should take caution in drinking coffee, among others. So I guess I will have to reduce my intake of coffee these days. Prevention is better than cure and it may cost less, right?!

At this time i would drink tea until 9am and then drink coffee until 12pm and then went back onto tea. but i haven't drank a cup of coffee in eight years now. I'm a tea drinker all the time.
