In my troop scouts aren't allowed to drink coffee. We don't allow them to
bring their own. However I am the only scout who can drink coffee, right now
I am 17, they let me start drinking at 16 though. Although I earned their
respect when I was about 14, I think they waited a while before letting me
drink coffee when I showed more self-control.
In my troop we have a lot of fun with the subject of coffee, at J.L.T i got
the nick name of "Javaman", At troop campouts they joke that if "I" the S.P.L
doesn't get his coffee I will be grumpy, the also say to others "Don't get
between David and his Coffee."
I have a personal quote "Coffee is our friend." The boys in the troop know its
all jokes though. so we don't have any problems.

and remember "Coffee is our Friend"
