If there is one thing that I’ve learned about techies, it’s that they love their caffeine. Just take a look at all of the various caffeine candies and exotic sodas that are marketed to geeks, or how many programmers have a mini fridge in their cubicle.
Until I gave up caffeine (I know, I know…), I was a black coffee kind of guy, but in earlier years, I was all Mountain Dew, all the time. Some geeks I know really dig chocolate (or, specifically, chocolate-covered coffee beans); others get their caffeine through different sources entirely. What’s your preferred delivery mechanism for caffeine?
