    Why do we even pretend this is an acceptable answer. Decaf coffee, non-alcoholic beer, vegan imitations, sugar free sodas. Just have something else you hypochondriac.

      Don’t put vegan imitations and sugar free into the same bucket as decaf coffee and non alcoholic beer vegan imitation. Low-alcohol beer/cider is good effort top tier. Decaf is coffee without the try hard stimulant jitters. We’re all just doing it for the taste anyway, no one needs 80mg of pure stim on a evening.

        If you cant have something for whatever reason just have something else.
        Vegan chicken, sugar free cola, non alcoholic beer and decaf coffee are similar in their solutions to "problems" so they most definitely deserve to be grouped together.
        I didn't say shit about low alcohol either lol so no need to bring it up.
        Tldr; Just have something else.

                They should have something else. The imitation is not even good at replicating the taste in any of the examples I posted. Not for vegan shit, not for alcohol free shit, not for sugar free shit, not for decaf shit. To even imply you do it for "taste" is laughable because it tastes like shit and nothing like the real deal.

                tried every tea under the sun, broth, kombucha, and whiskey a few times which actually did the trick, but most mornings I will give less of a frick about adjusting to decaf taste than I would about adjusting to some limp wristed dandelion tea shit

                To be the in that video about he claims decaf can be pretty good.

                The issue is that cafes etc…. Buy it in bulk and keep it until it’s used up, but in reality decaf beans go stale much/more faster than regular beans so the freshness is what’s needed.

                Imagine getting the comfy and warm coffee flavour without the anxiety attacks and intrusive thoughts. Very nice. Apparently it’s higher in polyphenols as well (for whatever reason), so it’s not terrible for your gut either

        Nah. It loses its taste faster, is missing half the aromatics, and you practically need to overextract it and/or roast the everloving frick out of the beans to stop a shot tasting like it's diluted.

                True, so even then its insane how much not worth it decaf is when you can have "real" coffee. When I was a barista we usually used beans for a few days before thrashing them. They just taste sloppy after a week.

              Caffeine exists as an insect repellent, it is produced naturally by the coffee plant because it objectively tastes bad. So the fact that you think removing the caffiene somehow lowers the quality of a coffee proves that you're an utter moron.

                I never said or implied just removing the caffeine lowers the quality, I just stated the observable fact that decaf is inferior and therefor not worth it. Dunno why you guys dont get that lmao.

                By stating that decaf is low quality, you are indeed implying that removing caffiene lowers the quality. If you had a triple digit IQ, you would realise that decaf is not objectively bad and any observed differences between regular and decaf coffee is due to the roaster and/or consumer being unable to account for the differences between the two.

              that's a distinction without a difference. making decaf is just a very aggressive form of washing the beans, which fricks with their texture. Instant adds an entire process after what should be the final product. It's no more coffee than Kraft slices are cheese.

    Caffeine is a terrible drug and can cause depression, insomnia, anhedonia, anxiety, racing thoughts, sleeplessness, restlessness, nervousness, headaches, and digestive issues. It messes up appetite and can vastly increase sugar intake (sugary drinks, etc.). If you start feeling tired around 2 PM every day its probably because you drank caffeine earlier in the morning.

    It shrinks blood vessels to the brain so it is no wonder why society at large is comfortable with caffeine addiction (saps your money AND makes you dumb).

    Long story short frick caffeine. Nicotine is a better drug (in small doses) - it increases blood flow to the brain and increases testosterone. No wonder they want to ban it altogether.

    If you actually enjoy the taste of coffee and don't just drink it as a stimulant, then yes it is worth it since it allows you to drink coffee more times throughout the day. Although admittedly a lot of decaf tastes bad, but the same is true for most commodity coffee in general and you have to pay more to get coffee that actually tastes nice on its own without being drowned in milk and sugar.
