I'm not one of those people who can go to sleep after drinking Coffee. I know people who can though. I actually prefer my body to respond to coffee like this anyway just in case I want or need to stay up.

I wish coffee could wake me up or keep me awake, but it doesn't. I think I'm far too addicted to caffeine for it to have that effect anymore. I can drink coffee at 1 in the morning then go to bed and sleep fine.

I have no problem going to sleep after dinking coffee. When I want to go to sleep, I go to sleep. When I want to wake up, I wake up. I drink quite a bit of coffee, but not enough that the caffeine gets to me. I like the coffee at The Second Cup. I ind the stuff from Starbucks to be way too powerful.

I've never drank Starsbucks coffee. I feel like i'm probably the only one who has not drank it. I've heard it really does not taste that good.

Actually coffee makes me sleepy so I wouldn't drink it if I wanted to be awake to study or for work. I don't know why I have this certain reaction with coffee and same with energy drinks. They're suppose to wake or energize you up but instead I feel the opposite.

I can't drink caffeinated drinks because it makes me jittery, gives me headaches, and hurts my stomach...so I'd have a hard time sleeping after drinking caffeinated coffee.

I love my coffee whether night or day. Coffee dosn't keep me awake at night I can go to sleep just fine with drinking it. I know it also works great after a few cups to help me wake up in the morning and get me going on what ever it is I have to do for the day. I'm glad coffee dosn't dosn't effect me in any which way for I would be so lost with out it if I could only have it dureing the morning and mid day hours. :)

It's late as I'm editing this response,and I have my Second mug of coffee at my elbow,and fully intend to finish it before bed! I think I'd need to hit the espressos or something more potent to keep me awake,or even something highly caffeinated,as regular brew doesn't do it for Me,either..

I can, although sometimes it is a little more difficult. Coffee does revive me a little but it doesn't get me wired(unless I drink a lot of it), so I normally don't have a problem falling asleep afterward.
