a question and a pointer

i'm not a coffee drinker, but it's my general understanding that coffee is consumed mainly for the caffeine.

so what's the point of decaf? who drinks it and why?

--

an idea for the next logical step beyond the automatic paper towel dispenser (the ones you see cropping up in public restrooms) came to me the other night. i wrote about it on resonate if anyone is interested.

I remember hearing somewhere a long time ago (so it could be completely wrong for all I know) that decaf actually doesn't have 0 caffeine, it just has 'less' caffeine than regular.

It has less caffeine than regular, for those that don't want to be super tweaked out.

My mom drinks decaf only, largely because she loves how coffee tastes but doesn't want all of the caffeine.

I'm a coffee drinker because I like the taste :) we drink half-caf here at my grandmother's

I drink coffee more for the taste than the perkiness effects. If I ever had to cut down on caffeine, I would go with decaf. And coffee's better for you than cola.

i drink decaf most of the time, which still isn't often, but when i'm craving that coffee warmth i almost always go with the unleaded version (caffeine makes my heart freak out).

It's for posers, wimps, and people with no taste. You know, like O'Doul's.

Ok- to add my 2 cents. I actually drink coffee for the taste more than for the caffeine. I guess that is why I drink it black - absolutely no cream nor sugar or any of that other stuff. I like coffee for coffee. :)

I also sometimes like the taste of coffee with a yummy desert - especially chocolate - and then I need it to be decaf. Unfortunately I am pushing middle age - gasp! - and if I have caffeine after say 2pm I am up all night. It sucks. Ah well. Time moves on...
