There are lots of ways to get your caffeine fix, from coffee to tea to homemade energy drinks. Enter your ideas in the Caffeine Challenge! The projects we’re looking for should include or be inspired by caffeine in some way. That could mean making a caffeinated bath bomb, chocolate covered espresso beans, or teaching the world the Argentinean way to prepare yerba mate.

One winner will win a Waring Pro professional espresso maker, and 25 runners-up will win an Instructables prize pack. Start thinking about your caffeinated Instructables, and good luck!

Upon publishing your Instructable you'll see checkboxes for open contests. Select Caffeine Challenge. If you have entries currently eligible for entry, it will also show up by clicking "Enter this Contest" on the right side of this page.


Entries are accepted by Instructables staff within one business day Monday - Friday. What matters is the submission time, not acceptance time.
