And when I say you, I mean “not me.” As those who have worked with me can tell you, I am not a coffee drinker. Maybe a cup or two a month, and even then only when absolutely necessary. I prefer my caffeine cold, and usually not until later in the day. According to this Washington Post article and the video below, the scientifically worst time to drink coffee is when you first wake up. So to all you bedraggled morning coffee drinkers, get your science right, start pounding coffee in the late morning or mid-afternoon, and leave us non-coffee addicts in peace. Youâ€™re welcome.
