** The Discworld is the home of the TropeNamer. Klatchian Coffee is so potent that it can take you right through sobriety and out the other side, into a state of horrifying depressive hyper-awareness known as knurd ([[SdrawkcabName "drunk" spelled backwards]]). In order to offset its effects, Klatchian Coffee enthusiasts typically drink Desert Orakh (one of several Discworld {{Gargle Blaster}}s) to make sure they're safely drunk.

One of the strongest available beans is called the ''Klatchnikov'', as in "a shot of coffee".

* Somewhat similar to chifir' is Saidi[[note]]Upper (i.e. Southern) Egyptian[[/note]] tea. It consists of about 3 teaspoons of tea boiled over a strong flame for about 5 minutes, producing, in essence, a 1/9 recipe of chifir'. This gets back up to chifir' levels when you consider that it's drunk in full servings rather than sips, meaning that you drink substantially more than nine times the amount you typically take of chifir'--although some will drink it with milk (diluting it slightly), the fact that it usually includes ungodly amounts of sugar (to mask the bitterness of such strong tea) makes up for it. And Saidis often drink several cups at one sitting. Visitors from Lower Egypt and elsewhere typically go haywire after half a glass; a Westerner who had a cup once called it "suicide tea" because of its capacity to induce extreme wakefulness and extremely rapid heart rate.

* WebVideo/EpicMealTime routinely uses Four Loko--once referred to as "alcoholic unicorn blood"--in some of their cooking videos. They would make it clear when they were using the "pre-ban shit" (when the formula was given a ReTool and was just another Monster-like energy drink) to emphasize the "epicness" due to the dangerous combination of alcohol and caffeine. Indeed, [[AwesomeMcCoolName MusclesGlasses']] famous [[MushroomSamba breakdown]] in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eah23WvLYsQ Chili Four Loko]] is a direct result of consuming so much of it with the massive amount of chili and bacon (he'd later have to be stuffed into the bathroom for several hours to dry off).

* Starfire Expresso in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' is an easy-to-make drink that restores {{Mana}}; if you're intoxicated, it also quickens the sobering a little.

* One of the evil grand vizier ComicBook/{{Iznogoud}}'s plans to become Caliph instead of the Caliph revolved around getting the Caliph to lie down in a cursed bed where all who slept disappeared. However, just as the plan was put in motion the Caliph had a sip of strong, Arabian coffee and all Iznogoud's attempts to get him sleepy (including experimental political performance theatre) failed.
