    Decaffeinated Coffee? What is the point?

    I gave up drinking coffee about a month ago because I was feeling overdosed from drinking too many cups every day. I liked to drink coffee because it seemed to psyche me up for work. I am now drinking tea instead. I could always drink decaffeinated coffee but what is the point of drinking coffee without caffeine. Surely it is the drug "caffeine" that makes coffee appealing. Do you think people really like the taste?

    When I run out of coffee and happen to have decaf in the house, I'll drink the decaf because I like the taste of coffee. Most teas have caffeine in them. Are you drinking decaf tea?

    For the time being I'm drinking decaf because I'm pregnant. I'm a huge coffee addict so decaf has helped me to continue drinking coffee without harming my baby. I really can't taste any difference between the two. The only issue I have with decaf is that it's harder to find unique flavors that you can find amongst caffeinated coffees.

    I only drink ordinary coffee for some of the day and then switch over to de-caffeinated later on in the day. I really enjoy the taste of the coffee whether it has caffeine in it or not and just having a hot drink beside me when I write helps to jog the brain cells a bit.

    Drinking decaffeinated coffee is like putting ethanol in your gas tank. It just ain't got no giddy up.

    I totally agree with what you are saying. A few years ago I was staying with my sister and the only coffee she had in the house was decaf. I'm not a heavy coffee drinker, but I do like my morning and mid afternoon coffee and decaf did nothing for me, I had to be rude and go and buy some proper coffee.

    I like coffee a lot but I have stomach ache from the caffeine so I am obliged to drink it decaffeinated, but the problem with decaffeinated is that I heard that to take off the caffeine from the coffee, they must add a lot of chemical products which are not healthy at all.

    There is no point. None of the benefits (super powers) all of the negative side effects (worse breath, not the best taste). Just avoid it.

    Some people like the taste and or are trying to cut down on caffeine and for them decaffeinated is fine. Anyone who wants a caffeine hit would obviously need real coffee.
