That would explain why my wife drinks so much coffee.  That's all her father drinks.

...and it's your mom's fault you swallow.

My dad's coffee habit is legendary in our family. Multiple pots a day until his doctor told him his blood pressure couldn't stand it anymore. My sister and I never touched the stuff while we lived at home.

Since adulthood, my sister and I have independently developed coffee habits similar to Dad's.

/Cool anecdote, bro.

Both my parents drank a lot of coffee.  I never developed a taste for it myself.  To this day, I don't drink any coffee.
 
2014-06-11 07:05:09 PM  
And here I thought it was because it contained highly addictive caffeine.
 
2014-06-11 08:08:07 PM  
You're wrong, subby.  I hate coffee.
 
2014-06-11 08:14:37 PM  
Well, when he gave me his kidney he did ask that I keep it well-supplied with coffee.

I've been drinking a pot to a pot and a half of coffee a day.  Since I was 12 years old.  My mother used to tell me, "Don't drink that stuff!  It'll STUNT YOUR GROWTH!"

I stopped at 6'2", so if it did, I'm glad of it.  Coffee is my beer.  I could be having the absolute worst day ever, be in complete misery, but all of that melts away with one good cup of coffee.  Zen comes in a ceramic mug.

Just like my folks did, there is a pot of coffee brewed here from wake-up, until bed-time. Nothing fancy, just coffee flavored coffee.
 
2014-06-11 08:22:15 PM  
Can't be right. Both my folks drink coffee all day. I rarely drink it. I prefer milk or home made cola.

Dear Mr. Science Guy, wrong-o !

My dad is LDS and has never had coffee, nor has my mom. Me, my coffee cup is the size do the Stanley cup and my grinder is industrial sized.

I blame him for all the beer and weed I need to cope also.
 
2014-06-11 08:26:56 PM  
Not true in my case. My folks werent coffee drinkers, and though I'm not addicted, the morning coffee I have maybe 5 days a week is alot more than my folks had. Dad actually didnt care for coffee so we never had it even stocked in our place except for company.
 
2014-06-11 08:28:24 PM  
my dad doesn't drink coffee

I chug it constantly and if you can't stand a spoon up in it then it's just warm colored water

I never understood how my parents could drink hot coffee all day, even in the summertime.

Interesting. I was under the impression that I'm addicted to coffee because it contains addictive psychoactive compounds. But if bull shiat science says it's my dad's genes, then surely, it's my dad's genes.

Like Toxoplasma-ridden cat lovers, coffee lovers are simply parasite hijacked automatons.

"Pseudomonas putida CBB5 can live on pure caffeine."

You can have best of both worlds with Civet Coffee.

Dad drinks some occasionally. I can't stand the stuff.

Take that, science.

It does not matter how nasty tasting the coffee is if you consume it by using an enema.

/also does not stain your teeth.

I appear to have all of these genes.  Cool, I guess.

But what about my propensity for high quality crystalline methamphetamine of the type I used to get from the Reading Pagans back in the 70's?  Who exactly do I blame that on?

Whenever I was in the tropics for an afternoon walk, I found a quality cup of hot coffee was very refreshing.  Something about the alkaloids.

I'm sorry but I like my coffee like my dad, hot and creamy, just doesn't have the same erotic zing to it.

Which in no way supports or disproves the article, but thanks for the random, mostly irrelevant, but tenuously related wikipedia link. I think.

Don't drink as much coffee as my dad, but he did influence how and why I do.

'You can put sugar and milk in it if you want, but you're not drinking it for the taste. Drink it black. Takes half the time and half the effort.'
 
2014-06-11 09:16:15 PM  
This list looks familiar some how:  artichokes, bacon, broccoli, coffee, chicory, dark chocolate, blue cheese, ice cream, buttered bread, orange juice, plain yogurt, white wine and mushrooms.

Hmmmm!

I've got it! They've discovered the genes for Frenchness! Either that or the recipe for the perfect breakfast. Minus the broccoli, of course.

List could use some crullers, cream and fresh fruit.

I read that as homemade milk.

My dad had two water heaters installed in our house. I never realized it then but surely one was full of coffee.
 
2014-06-11 09:49:37 PM  
The article doesn't say anything about WHICH parent you get it from.

I clearly get it from my mom.  She has to drink coffee multiple times per day or get ridiculously bad headaches.  Yup, I got that, too.
 
2014-06-11 09:56:41 PM  
I'm another that doesn't drink coffee at all and my parents both drink it all the time.

Realy annoying at a restaurant "just a 1/2 cup please" GEEZ can we get going already?!!?

CSB

My father drank coffee everyday in the morning. I drink coffee every day in the morning and have done so for decades. My mother did not. My wife does not.

Genetics? It's split between the kids. 2 must have a cup in the morning, the other never touches a cup of coffee although available.

I suggest a dominant gene.
 
2014-06-11 09:59:48 PM  
thanks, Dad

stopped using sugar in my coffee 30 years ago and stopped using half and half last year.  Been brewing my coffee with real ground cinnamon (saigon cinnamon is my favorite) for the last 10 plus years.  Drinking coffee black is vastly more enjoyable.

Don't know about the rest of the country but the McDonald's around here have better coffee than Dunkin Donuts, so when I can't get to a preferred coffee shop i can still get an acceptable cup of joe.

I brew coffee at home because the ~2 dollars (plus tip) gets expensive for every cup I drink during the course of a day.  Medaglia D'oro makes a fine medium espresso roast that I find perfectly cromnulent and can get at most supermarkets readily.  I stopped grinding beans because the cat was traumatized by the machine and I got up at ungodly hours (not so much anymore, I'll admit.)  Now I have two super nervous kitties (maybe they're getting into my coffee during the night?) and if I were to grind beans there would be two kitty shaped holes in the kitchen door and I'd probably never see them again.
