I wish I could figure out how coffee works

September 23, 2016

I only started drinking coffee recently. Before then I tried drinking coffee occasionally and absolutely hated it. Then one day, I decided to do what I did with tea, and try it without any sugar, milk or anything else added and I decided it was actually quite alright. Part of me regrets it, because guess what – now I’m addicted.

I never really believed you could get addicted to coffee, but I can definitely understand it now. Don’t get me wrong, I can go a few days without drinking coffee, but I seriously feel like I can’t concentrate properly at work without it. How did I ever concentrate before I started drinking coffee?

I wouldn’t mind being addicted to coffee if it had the same effect on me each time I drink it, but the problem is that I never know what’s going to happen after having a cup. Some days it makes me super alert and productive, other days it makes me more tired and just plain grumpy. How is that even possible? I drink it around the same time each day, so I don’t think it has to do with body clocks and all that.


Yesterday I had a cup at around 9.30am, which I believe is supposed to be an ideal time. And it made me a bit more alert, but exhausted at the same time. I could concentrate and do my work, but I just could not stop yawning. Today I had a cup and it made me feel great! I’m so confused.

I’ve decided that my body can’t really handle some types of espresso coffees. They literally give me the shakes. Perhaps some beans are stronger than others. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to figure out which ones do that to me, which is a pain. These days I mostly just have instant coffee at work, but I often order an Americano or a Long Black if I’m out and about.

Maybe my brain’s still getting adjusted to drinking coffee. Seeing as I started drinking it in my late twenties, I’m sure my brain is freaking out, wondering what on earth this weird drink is. I’m sure it’ll figure it out soon.

Do you drink coffee? How does it affect you?

    Well, coffee has its good things about it and bad, i prefer to enjoy it with just a little bit of half and half and just sit and enjoy the flavor. I don’t put sugar in it, to me it distorts the aroma and flavor of whatever coffee I’m having. As of late, I don’t have as much coffee as I used to, which is good, hope all goes well for you with it.

      Yes, sugar definitely makes coffee taste and smell completely different. To me it ruins it, which is why I can’t enjoy mochas and other coffees with flavouring. I try to stick to one cup of coffee a day, and if I feel like another I usually have a decaffeinated one. 🙂
