  • Personally I enjoy a Chai Tea Latte from Starbucks (I'm more of a tea drinker than coffee). However, I do enjoy an iced mocha when it is warm out, but only in the early morning or late evening... or if I'm really really tired.

  • Well I drink both coffee AND tea. Coffee earlier in day and tea later.

    Even McDonalds though can vary by location. The McDonalds south of town near I70 and the one on Wabash in Terre Haute has coffee superior to the brew in downtown Brazil even. Their iced coffee varies in quality even more than the hot.[IMO]

    I agree though, it's not real unless it has real cream or milk.

    While it is not anywhere near the top of my list and has powdered creamer, the best deal is at Rural King where popcorn and coffee are always free.

    Beats even your senior discount!! [lol]

  • Overall rule of thumb; the cheaper the coffee is the higher the caffeine content. Most institutional coffee i.e. McDonalds, Hardees, local restaurants will be grown at low altitudes, be very low quality and contains higher amounts of caffeine.

    Once per once, an espresso based drink will have less caffeine in it then the $.52 cent cup of coffee from McDonalds for two reasons:

    1. Espresso is roasted much darker than regular coffee thus removing more of the caffeine in the process.

    2. Espresso from high end roasters will be blends of high altitude high quality beans. The higher the altitude a bean is grown the lower the caffeine content.
