Tampa Bay’s Morning Krewe

Weekdays 6:00AM - 10:00AM

J.R. drinking

Something happened on the show today that has never happened before.  J.R. tried coffee for the first time.

J.R. told us that he has never even tried coffee.  Ever.  He read an article about how drinking black coffee everyday will prolong your life and is good for your health.

The study said about 2-5 cups a day is linked to lower likelihood of type 2 diabetes, heart disease, liver and endometrial cancers, Parkinson’s disease, and depression.  It’s even possible that people who drink coffee will ive longer.

The article goes on to say that certain groups should be careful about drinking coffee, there are no known studies about the effects of coffee on children and caffeine could be harmful to pregnant women.  Too much caffeine can cause anxiety in people or disorders, too.

He said he’s never tried his parents coffee, or even tried it all the years he’s been doing morning radio.  Kevin, loves coffee and drinks his black every morning.  Launa is not a coffee drinker and drinks hot tea instead.

Kevin brought in his favorite Dunkin flavor and a mug that his kids got him for Father’s Day so J.R. could borrow it.

The mug was perfect, it said “Best Farter Ever.  Oops! I meant Father.”

Kevin's coffee mug

Kevin made him some black coffee.  J.R. tried coffee for the first time.

He didn’t like it.  He said it didn’t smell good and when he sipped it, he had a disgusting look on his face and said right away it tasted horrible.  He actually took a second sip to confirm that he didn’t like coffee.

It’s crazy to think that he has never even tried coffee or a flavored drink or candy flavored coffee before.  So now he can scratch that off his list.  J.R. tried coffee for the first time.
