I've never been a regular coffee drinker, but halfway through my pregnancy with my son I started to crave it. So, I had a little decaf now and then. Thankfully, my son was very easy on me, pregnancy-wise. It was my daughter that nearly killed me :P hehe...

I got very nauseous around the smell of coffee when I was pregnant with my first.  Couldn't be NEAR it for months. Just walking into a coffee house made me feel close to puking.  It was a very particular type of nausea though, and I only had it when I was pregnant.  And, eight years later, I was entering the bulk coffee aisle at the grocery store when I experienced it again.  I thought--"Oh my god...I'm pregnant."  I left my cart in the aisle, ran to the pregnancy test kits and took it to the bathroom in the store before paying for it.  (I had been through 6 years of infertility treatment hell...this was impossible.)  Except, it wasn't.  I was pregnant...by 16 days or so!  Diagnosis by smell.  /sidetrack

I am now back to fully loving coffee--several shots a day, though not 17.

For a good part of my life I found myself unable to drink coffee. Something about the acid-y kickback always just made me gag inside. Then around age 17 when I was cram- I mean, studying ::) for final exams, I would take the old coffee my parents didn't drink that day and put it in a tall glass with a BUNCH of ice and milk and some sugar to stay awake. It wasn't so bad when it was cold.

But after that, I went back to hating the stuff, until I discovered cold-brewed coffee halfway through college. It was like an epiphany! I was a regular customer at the local cafe until the place stopped serving it...

After College, cold brew does nothing for me, it seems bland to my changed palate. I tend to go now for the really deep, musky, acid-y zing of the strong roast, something that would have made me sick just 10 years ago. I'm not a big fan of Starschmuck's, but I do like their Pike Place Roast :D not incredibly strong, but it has a certain something I can't quite place...

Ever since I had my first tongue blistering sip I've liked my coffee like I like my women, hot and strong with a little bit of sugah
