    Because it's a legal, addictive stimulant. And tastes great if prepared right.

    I've been coffee free for two years. It was hard to give up, and my mornings sucked without it, but now I don't miss it or need it to get the day going.

    I gave up caffeine about five years ago, great decision. Missed it at first, but haven't given it a second thought for ages. Just say no to drugs :D

    For me, it's always been about flavor. If I find a brand or type of coffee I like, I'll drink that stuff all morning. But for me, it has to be straight black. No cream, no sugar and strong as hell.

    I can't stand the taste of coffee. No sugar or cream or any other additive can take away that disgusting bitter taste. I assumed everyone who drank it did it mostly for their caffeine fix. But I get my daily fix from another source, Diet Pepsi.

    unless i'll ive had coffee each and every morning for a long time, often it the thought of coffee that forces me from bed, im not sure i will ever ever try to break free from this drug, i also enjoy tea through the day, i could give up alcohol before caffeine, then again, its not just the caffeine, if i didnt have coffee/tea but say coke available, i wouldnt want to drink that as a substitute. I just love the taste and kick of coffee together.

    I've never had coffee of any kind; the smell alone disgusts me so much that I can't imagine actually drinking it. I also stay away from other forms of caffeine (colas, energy drinks, etc), other than a little chocolate every once in awhile.

    Take with a grain of salt, since it's Wikipedia, but this would be a decent start to answer that question...

    Because it is tasty! Best cup is the first one right after brewing. :) 
    I used to have a pin that said "Decaf is the anti-Christ." :p

    Along with the obvious drug bit, I think for me coffee is a habit, much like going out for a smoke is part of the habit of Smokers. I enjoy drinking coffee when I work, or play video games, no matter what time of day it is. It is part of my day I guess.

    Because it's delicious.

    Good either hot or cold, with flavoring or without.

    Anyone had Turkish coffee before? Thick (like, tar thick with grains at the bottom) and black as night. Good stuff.

    Becuase of the caffeine. It's a legal stimulant!

    Plus it doesn't taste to bad either...

    Try it once back in junior high as part of a movie thing. Scarred me for life.
    Nothing beats a glass of fruit juice though. With no pulp

    Can't stand the taste of coffee. I'm more addicted to drinking Mountain Dew than anything else.
