Apparently I am one in a family full of caffeine-addicted introverts, because that is my morning ritual, too (sub a giant bun on top of my head for rollers, and over sized boxers for the slip…don’t judge me). Except I am a food dork, so I do food dork things to make my morning coffee that much more delightful. Like that time I turned it into sangria. Do not fear, for I am not downing alcohol as I start my day! This iced coffee is just sangria-style, loaded with fresh fruit and extra ice.

Caffeine addicts rejoice! World's first colorless coffee contains the equivalent of two espresso shots!
It can be tough to get through your morning without a coffee in hand, but the worry of stains on your teeth can be somewhat off-putting.
But help is at hand, as a firm has created the world's first colorless coffee.
CLR CFF looks like water, but contains the same amount of caffeine as a double espresso.
Cherry Coke Popsicles are just so darned cute I can barely stand it. Not only that, they taste great. I have been dragging my feet with this homemade Popsicle craze, but now that I have made these, my first effort, I’m sure I will be testing more flavors. Making them is just so much fun!
One of my favorite drinks as a young teenager was Cherry Coke. I don’t mean the kind you buy already mixed, but the kind ordered at a soda shop – the kind where cherry flavoring is added to cola and garnished with a maraschino cherry. YUM!

Yes, you have read it correctly. There is a particular drink on the market that mixes chocolate and caffeine. The best part? Well, it may just help to improve your brain’s thinking process.
In a joint study between New York’s Clarkson University, the University of Wisconsin, and the Oregon Science University researches have found that student’s test taking abilities increased with cocoa and caffeine. Researchers tested 24 students at the University of Georgia where they made each subject take a “mental energy test battery” according to Business Insider.
They would repeat the process three times after consuming three different test drinks. Each drink contained different ingredients; one had only caffeine, one had cocoa, and the last drink had a combination of both cocoa and chocolate.

AND I LOVE IT! Each morning when I wake up I probably drive my housemates mad with the noise when I crank up my increasingly noisy, but oh so lovely, coffee machine.
The bizarre contraption cost me close to $500, but to me it is money very well spent.
When I get out of bed the first thing I do is grind some coffee beans, heat the coffee contraption up and get ready to pour myself a sweet cup of caffeinated magic, otherwise known as a flat white.
I don’t take drugs, I am not a heavy drinker, but when it comes to caffeine I will admit I am hopelessly and pathetically hooked.
Most mornings I will not leave the house until I have consumed a cup of the heavenly liquid, and if I have not had my cup things feel incomplete.

Yup, it’s a thing! Einstein Bros. Bagels is launching the world’s first caffeinated bagel Thursday. Dubbed the “Espresso Buzz Bagel,” each pastry contains 32 milligrams of caffeine—about a third of what you’ll find in the average 8-ounce cup.
The Lakewood, Colo.-based bagel chain says it’s been working on the product for about nine months. Spurred by younger consumers’ interest in craft coffee, the bakery hopes this “unique and innovative” food offering will be a hit with tired hipsters across the country.

Looking for a new way to get your caffeine fix? We've got just the thing. Using finely ground coffee in an easy homemade butter, you're 15 minutes away from the best thing to happen to toast since—you guessed it—sliced bread.
This compound butter is perfect spread over breakfast pastries like scones, croissants and English muffins. Or spread on top of biscuits for a red-eye twist on fried chicken and biscuits. If you're a fan of coffee-encrusted meats, try a savory variation of our coffee butter recipe by omitting the sugar. Form the butter into logs in between parchment paper and chill. When ready to use, cut the butter into coins and serve over grilled skirt steak.

A surprisingly delicious way to get your caffeine. If you mention lemonade iced coffee to people you might be met with funny looks. “I think the combination of citrus and coffee is something we associate with being wrong, but it’s really delicious,” says Eden Elan, general manager of Paramount Coffee Project.
At first, a citrus flavor blooms on the palate. It’s quickly followed by the slightly toasted, slightly sweet taste of coffee.

No this is not a joke! This is REAL! If you’ve ever dreamed of taking your Dunkin’ Donuts coffee on the go (and in cookie form), then your dreams have finally, finally come through. After a brief courtship and (hopefully) an easy labor, Dunkin’ and Nabisco are pleased to announce that, yes, friends, they’ve had a baby. (and it’s not Oreos’ first!)
What does that baby look (and more importantly taste) like? Well, we don’t know the answer to the second question yet — the cookie’s not out — but according to Grub Street, the usual white filling (no one’s ever going to convince us it’s vanilla; it’s white flavor and that’s all there is to it) has been replaced by Dunkin’s signature mocha flavor and will satisfy all your flavor cravings, if not your caffeine needs. (Although, how great would that be? Forget caffeine pills and big-ass lattes! Get your Jessie Spano on by eating cookies until you literally pass out!)
For anyone who loves a cocktail, an espresso martini is pretty much perfection in liquid form.
It's simple, stimulating and the perfect pick-me-up for a night out.

Ground coffee, a potent source of caffeine, is a natural hair care ingredient that can be used to promote fast hair growth. It even adds a natural softness and gloss to your hair, and more than anything else, serves as a natural dye which helps cover all your greys in the finest possible way. Coffee nourishes your hair roots by making your hair follicles strong, boosts blood circulation to the scalp, and improves its texture.
