I'm not really a coffee addict...I usually have half a cup in the morning, and reheat the rest in the afternoon, to keep me awake. The problem isn't really the coffee. I like cream and sugar with a little coffee for color...I've tried black -- couldn't take it.

This morning I had a cup of ginseng tea with stevia. It tasted good, but is this an acceptable substitute? I've also been thinking of taking more B vitamins...any suggestions?

Try teeccino, it's herbal "coffee", it is nutty and wholesome like coffee, but naturally non-caffinated. I really like it. My favorite is the Vanilla Nut flavor. Look it up online. I found it at two local stores.

Love the food that loves you back.

Take it one day at a time!

OMG!! There is nothing I miss more than my coffee. The smell of it brewing in the office drives me crazy, but I've stopped cold turkey and have been off it for the last 3 months. Now I saw your post and can't believe there is something else out there. How does it taste? I see they carry it at a Whole Foods close to me. I'm sooo excited!

The Vanilla Nut and Mocha flavors are my favorite. They are just great. Plus it is non-acidic and high in potassium. It also has less carbs than coffee per cup. You brew it just like coffee in a coffee maker. 0.5g net carbs per cup! If you care about that sort of thing. Smile

Thanks Saray! I'm placing my order today, since the nearest whole foods is about an hour away. I'll let you know how I like it!

Yea, let me know. My husband loves it too. He drinks it black. And he only drinks "good coffee" black!

Thanks Sararay! I wanted to go to Whole Foods on my way home tonight, but it was pouring rain here and I just couldn't do it. Tomorrow for sure!
