I can't tell you if it's bad for you (although it probably is), but I may be able to cure you of liking it - try eating a spoonful of instant coffee. I did it years ago and can't go near a mug of coffee for any money
i asked the same question on a thread in the 'health' area a few months ago. Mothernature (i think?) provided me with the same link and according to that, coffee is actually alright for you. i've started drinking coffee again but not as much. i drink decaf on days where i haven't had a rough night with ds.
No, it isn't bad for you at all in reasonable amounts. In fact, it may help stave off Alzheimers. Having said that, I find caffeine makes me so irritable these days that I only drink decaff at home. Love a decent coffee when I'm out though.
Instant coffee is definitely bad for you because it tastes so awful, even when fairly traded and organic. But a steaming pot of freshly-brewed Java, preferably drunk from a china cup in a cafe somewhere exotic (like Java itself), is one of life's finest pleasures...
