Topic: Totally Bummed -More about decaf- - by half (27 lines)
1) From: HeatGunRoast
I have no bad effects from caffeine (blood pressure, jitteryness, etc.) EXCEPT sleep
disturbance. This seems to be related to the half-life of caffeine in my body rather
than the amount of caffeine I consume. The tipping point is mid- to late afternoon.
In other words, the amount of caffeine (as in half-caf or full caf; one shot or
three) does not seem to be nearly as large a factor as the length of time I allow
myself to metabolize the drug.  This is one reason I've never gone the half-caf
route. 
One of the elements I find least satisfactory about decaf is the relative lack of
body in the (espresso) cup. If not entirely my imagination, why is this so?
