in reply to My preferred source of caffeine is...

One of the coffee shops by where I work has staff that I have finally gotten "trained". They don't look at me funny when I ask them for "The Sniper Special."

They have an item on their menu called "A Shot In The Dark." This consists of a large regular drip coffee into which a shot of esspresso is poured.

I have further refined this to a large drip coffee of the day with 2 shots of esspresso in it. This has become known as the Sniper Special aka "Big Double Shot in the Dark."

Good for what ails ya...

No, it's just however many espresso shots would fit in a grande cup (which in our case, was 10 to 12) That would get me going in the morning. Alas, I miss having a stomach lining. Nowadays, I stick to copious hydration and my one-a-day which has about 1000% each of B vitamins 1, 2, 3, 6, and 12, for making your cells oh so happy. Seriously, taking a one-a-day vitamin everyday for a couple of weeks (and keeping up with it) nets a very noticable change, as does keeping up on hydration. Unfortunately, caffeine is a diuretic...
