Caffeine intake preferences...

In preparation for NaNoWriMo one of my tasks is to think about supplies. Caffeine is definitely something I'm wondering about given that the grey weather is setting in along with the cold, and this definitely slows me down... (and I'm usually a tired person!) So I need some input from everyone!

What’s your preferred method(s) of caffeine consumption?
A. Coffee - from home or work coffee maker
B. Coffee - coffee house
C. Caffeinated soda (Pepsi, Coke, Mountain Dew, Barqs, etc.)
D. Energy Drinks (5 Hour-Energy, Red Bull, Rockstar, etc.)
E. Caffeine mints
F. Caffeine pills
G. Other (What other?)

Personally I tend to get my caffeine from soda (Pepsi, and I’ve been going to diet lately to lessen the sugar, but there’s sweetener anyway and it’s still acidic… bah, whatever) and I’ve gotten cafe mocha more often this past year. I have a Starbucks on the corner of my block and a local coffeehouse down the road a bit.
What I’d really like is to have something I can have on-hand in the house to prepare. Problem is, I don’t like coffee tasting too coffee-like - mochas work best for me. Also, I like it hot, chilled coffee tastes icky to me. So I’m looking for advice: tips for what to buy or how to do the mocha thing at home?
Thanks all! =D

I don't know about the mocha thing. I drink really strong coffee with french vanilla creamer and a hint of sugar. I didn't like the taste of coffee either until I had an 8am class in college and couldn't survive without it. You get used to to taste but until then, sugar and creamer help.

While I do have a cup of STRONG (so strong, in fact, I sometimes get the jitters. lol. probably not good!) coffee in the morning, my preferred method of caffeine is Diet Coke. I probably bleed Diet Coke, that's how much I love and drink it. lol
