  1. It’s strange how people describe coffee as an energy booster when all it does is just tricking your brain into thinking that you don’t need a rest when you actually do. Our body is the product of long term evolution, it is smarter than you realize, when you feel really sleepy, then that’s the signal telling you that the body needs rest. If you keep ignoring it and do the opposite, there will be consequences, which might not show immediately, but eventually the harm will appear.
    So instead of thinking what to intake in order to keep you awake, try to get rnough sleep or improve your quality of sleep.

  2. Try the flavored coffees out, some don’t even taste like coffee, seriously. I recently tried a cup of Decaf Caramel coffee, extremely weird…it was like drinking a candy bar.

  3. Health warnings aside, I think the easiest way to ease into drinking coffee is to start with drinks that use coffee as an ingredient and go from there.
    If you absolutely hate the taste of coffee, drinks like frappes have a slight coffee taste but most of the time taste more like milk shakes. I would start with those and move to lighter coffee blends with creamer or milk and sugar added. After that you may want to start trying stronger blends but that all depends on your tastes.
    I’m mostly basing this off of my journey to liking darker beers. A few years back one swig of Guinness extra stout would make me cringe. Today it’s a little weak for my tastes. Around that time I started drinking lighter beers and eventually acquired a taste for darker and darker beers.

  4. Start buying coffee at shops. It’ll be easier to get into than making crappy coffee at home and after a while you’ll know if you really like it.
    At coffee shops save your money and don’t get lattes or frappes that taste better to the new consumer. Instead get regular coffee. Ask for room for cream if they don’t ask you then put two creamers or enough till the color is caramel brown after stirring. Add as much sugar as you think is healthy for you or to taste. Which ever comes first.
    For me reducing the amount of creamer and sugar I used took forever. I have huge sweet tooth. Though most starting out will be drinking black coffee in no time. Then you’ll start realizing how much you have been spending at coffee shops and you’ll start making it at home.
    Time frame for first cup to making a quality cup at home: 6 months – a year
    Plus caffeine is gods’ gift us workouters.
    Coining that term.

  5. Cold brewed coffee, with ice, non-dairy milk, and cane sugar.
    I know everyone says that coffee dehydrates you. I disagree. I used to drink coffee (usually cold) before intense martial arts workouts, and I found that it did indeed boost my energy level. I also drank plenty of water.
    What about a strongly brewed cup of tea? Maybe that would be more enticing to you than coffee? Something like Earl Grey?
    I used to like Morning Thunder by Celestial Seasonings. It has both mate and black tea, and I thought it was delicious with some milk and honey.
    Keep experimenting. I also like Lapsong Souchong, which is a smoky tea.
