Hmm...does anyone do this? I think it's popular amongst the people who have whitened their teeth.....

Never thought of that before!, I myself don't drink coffee, I only drink tea, but I guess you could do the same thing with tea??

i see people at Starbucks drinking hot coffee with straws all the time, and I didn't know that was why they did it! I was wondering why they would drink hot coffee with a straw

I don't, at least not usually. No real reason not to, I guess, there's just a few things I don't drink through a straw, coffee, tea, and water. If it's a coke, especially over ice, OTOH, I've got to have a straw as I can't stand the ice breaking loose when I tilt the glass up, I have a drinking problem (remember "Airplane"?)

I will occasionally sip a bit through the little stir sticks I bought (a box of like 7,000 at Sams Club!) but only if it's very hot as that makes it a bit more comfortable to drink..

There is one "straw" I drink coffee from when I can - a TimTam straw. TimTams are these fabulous cookies from Australia. You nip off a corner on one end and then nip off the opposite corner on the other end. Then you stick one end in your coffee and suck the liquid up through the cookie. You pop the whole thing in your mouth and get a delicious explosion of coffee & chocolate.

I think I need to find the TimTam website now and order a hundred-billion cookies. Excuse me for a moment. . .

I don't drink coffee anymore but I guess I can see doing that if you have whittened your teeth. It's expensive.

Not all coffee is hot y'all. I drink cold coffee through straws all the time. And if that coffee (hot warm or cold) has whipped cream I do so so I dont get it on my face (think dr. evil from austin powers), and I dont want my teeth to look icky either.

Straws are just another name for eye gougers and nose reamers, I never use them.

Sometimes I drink hot coffee through those really narrow straws...only because I want my big 24 ouncer to last...sometimes it takes me a good 2 hours to finish my "cup". Guess you could say I'm a nurse who nurses her drink! Otherwise, I hate straws..and while we're at it, I HATE those cardboard sleeves they use to protect you from the hot cup. I have a tactile sensitivity to them.

I do drink coffee through a straw on occasion but it isn't to keep my teeth white... just helps to keep from a burnt mouth at work. That coffee is HOT!!

I don't actually drink it through a STRAW but through the stirer as it is less hot that way, AND I don't get too much and get burned while walking and drinking at the same time!

Heh... I dont drink coffee but if I did I would drink it through a straw. I have a straw fetish I think. I love nothing more than having a big, tall glass full to the rim with ice and a nice, cold coke. The colder, the better! Mmmmmm I only wish we had some coke right now, but all we have is diet mountain dew. I like the tiny straws also but my mom hides them from me though she NEVER uses them at all. I also like to bite down on the straws when I drink, making even less liquid go through so I can suck on it and savor teh taste. :O I am weird I suppose xD. I also like to drink canned beverages by just popping the top enough to open the tiny holes on the back near the tab but not really opening it, so I can suck it out of the top O_O Usually makes the can bend in and then I drink it through a hole in the side. Mmmm... sometimes I like to poke a very very teeny hole in the side with a knife, then shake the soda up and drink it as it sprays at me from the can. xD I find it fun but I am strange...

I've never heard of drinking coffee through a straw for keeping your teeth white.
But I have drank coffee with a straw after getting a tooth pulled!

Without a straw for me

I don't drink my coffee through a straw, bu I do drink it through chocolate bars - sometimes - like Kit Kat, Tim Tams, Penguins etc!

If they drink coffee through a straw to prevent colouring their teeth, do they drink red wine the same way?!

When I can, I drink my coffee with a straw. I prefer those small thin straws over the wider straws for sodas or cold drinks. Not only does the straw help with the caffeine stain on my teeth, but it also cools the hot coffee slightly before it touches my mouth.
