Should I use "of" here?
- I drink some coffee every day.
- A lot (of) actually.
Why?

Thanks for your thoughts:)

@Gill21,
No you should not use 'of'. The phrase 'a lot' used alone means 'a large amount'.
Question: how much coffee do you drink every day?
Answer: a lot.

@Gill21,
If you're going to use "of," then you have to include its object, e.g. "coffee," "it," otherwise, omit it.

A lot of coffee, actually.

A lot of it, actually.
