      Hi Penlady,

      Thank you for visiting, commenting, and for the vote :) As for me, I like coffee hot or cold and also drinks twice a day. Though nowadays I try to limit it only in the morning.

      Thanks again :)

      I love coffee - though I confess I prefer it hot. I can't function through the day without it. On some days, I have two cups: one in the morning, the other at night (when I'm up working late).

      Interesting article. Voted up and interesting. Thanks for sharing.
