Everybody loves caffeine; for those of us who love our daily fix we have to make do with choking down gallons of coffee, or consuming energy drinks that look like urine and likely taste worse.  

Step 1: Disclaimer

WARNING: 

Caffeine is a deadly poison, do not exceed a safe dose unless you are prepared to experience shaking, feeling like you are going to die, and/or actually dying. When handling it take appropriate safety precautions and wash your hands afterwards. DO NOT LICK YOUR FINGERS AFTER HANDLING CAFFEINE.

If under 18 undertake this experiment only under the supervision of an intelligent, competent adult.

I ACCEPT NO LIABILITY FOR ANY ACCIDENTS THAT ARISE AS A RESULT OF PERFORMING THIS PROCEDURE.

That said, if you follow the instructions carefully and apply common sense this is a fun, safe and rewarding experiment.
 
Instead of a scale, you could use caffeine tablets. Generic brand is best, less fillers. Just crush, put into water, add citric acid, and filter.
Wouldn't it just be easier to drink three cups of coffee? :D
<br> Your caffeine image is dodgy, well it's just wrong (in the bonds, and in general) use <a href="http://images.google.co.uk/images?hl=en&source=imghp&biw=1408&bih=854&q=caffeine+molecule&gbv=2&aq=2s&aqi=g2g-s1g1g-m1&aql=&oq=caffi&gs_rfai=">one of the coloured ones</a> instead.<br> Great coffee idea, but have you ever seen <a href="http://www.lileks.com/comics/coffeenerves/index.html">Mr Coffee-nerves</a>?<br> <br> L<br>
Why destroy good coffee like this? Might as well have used instant. Could have just added the pure caffeine to any beverage (except beer, it's sacred).<br><br>But really though, good, freshly roasted coffee, has plenty of caffeine, and you get more than enough in a pot, which you enjoy drinking, rather than struggle to keep down, like with instant coffee.<br><br>Should mention that I've bean roasting my own coffee beans, more than 4 years now, and probably a little over sensitive to some of your bean abuse...
Thanks for the feedback - I get that's what you get from being too jumped up on caffeine ;)<br>
<br> Ha, Coffee-Nerves...<br> <br> L<br>
