The State Of Coffee Drinking

May 29, 2014, 7:29 AM by Brittany Larson

The State Of Coffee Drinking
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

If you haven't already, most of you will fulfill your daily dose of caffeine soon.

According to the FDA, approximately 80 percent of adults in the U.S. consume caffeine every day. On average, coffee drinkers have around two cups, or 200 milligrams of caffeine, everyday.

"I wouldn't say that I need it, but it wouldn't be any fun without it," avid coffee drinker Mike Erger said.

"I like the taste of coffee, always have," coffee drinker Ron Dannenbring said.

Whether you're grabbing a coffee to go or you're waiting in line at the drive through, people enjoy their daily dose of caffeine.

"I probably don't need it everyday, it's more of a luxury that I have built in for myself. Usually I have a cup of coffee every morning," Calie Roggatz said.

"Especially if I am going to go for a drive or a long trip business. Starbucks or some place like that is going to be on my path to getting out of town," Mike Erger said.

Mike Erger admits he drinks coffee everyday, sometimes three to four cups.

"To say that I am addicted to caffeine, I don't know because I haven't been given a chance to come off,"  Mike Erger said.

But Erger keeps his order simple.

"Half decaf, half regular coffee. I don't do the fancy stuff. I don't know how to pronounce all of those things," Erger said

Erger says he noticed when he's taken in too much caffeine.

"I think I have drank too much coffee in the past too much caffeine in the past as to where I had to slow down because of heartburn or reflex so I don't have any issues as long as I stay with half decaf," Erger said.

Others drink caffeine or a cup of coffee for social reasons.

"I get together with a group of guys and we run on Saturday mornings. But we run and then we have coffee and we have been doing it for years. I don't think I need the kick. I got off caffeine and I can go without it and I don't notice it at all. But I like the taste of coffee still," Ron Dannenbring said.
