** Worse, one limited edition run made use of [[http://www.deathwishcoffee.com/index.html Death Wish Coffee]] (see the page pic) which bills itself as "the strongest coffee in the world" and claims to be approximately 200% more caffeinated than the average coffee. The store advises consuming only 50 ml a day.

And now the company has become a sensation across the nation!

* In real life, combining lots of caffeine with lots of alcohol (to use the trope names, mixing Klatchian Coffee ''with'' a GargleBlaster) tends to produce some rather dangerous effects, to the point that it's hard to to tell which set of effects on which life-critical system (namely, your heart or your lungs) will kill you first. The worst part is that the conflicting buzzes prevent you from knowing your limits on either. Thus, one of the nastier "overdoses" to show up in First World emergency departments is the "Red Bull and Vodka" (or substitute your favored local caffeine-and-ethanol concoction) OD - which results in an unconscious patient with a very deadly combination of supraventricular tachycardia and respiratory failure. In response to this class of incident, the FDA in November 2010 clamped down on drinks like Four Loko and Joose by setting limits on the amount of caffeine that can be in the drinks.
** The only way to top this required replacing caffeine with cocaine, which is several times more potent stimulant. In combination with ethanol in the body, cocaine can also produce a stimulant called cocaethylene, which may have a stronger cardiac effect than plain cocaine. This vile decoct was actually called "the trench cocktail" (окопный коктейль ''okopniy kokteyl''), because it was introduced as a military stimulant during WWI. During the Russian Civil War, such an alcohol-cocaine tincture was very popular among Baltic Fleet sailors (a primary Revolutionary muscle) as a stimulant and rumored cure-it-all. Given the typhoid fever outbreak that was raging around at the time, these sailors might've been up to something, though. It's also known as "Baltic Tea", a neologism coined by the modern writer Creator/VictorPelevin.
** The other unfortunate side effect is this can, and has, led to a sort of home brew version of roid rage where drinkers become, for lack of a better word, overstimulated and go off the show from the combination of the caffeine hit and alcohol impairment.

* Two words: Bawls Exxtra. Bawls is a high-caffeine soft-drink that tastes like a cross between sprite and creme soda, but contains a bit more caffeine per ounce than Red Bull does. Bawls Exxtra is the sugar-free version, sweetened with [=AceK=] and sucralose (Splenda). It has '''50% more''' caffeine per ounce than regular Bawls.

** The "other" active ingredient in Red Bull is taurine (which is not extracted from bull testes, as much as some people would like us to think), and it's also the ingredient which sparked most scandals with government regulatory bodies in European countries. As a compromise, all energy drinks marketed in Europe were required to have 320mg of caffeine and 0.4% taurine per dose. As in USA there was no such rule, American manufacturers could increase the content of either caffeine, or, as with NOS Energy Drink, taurine. 5-Hour Energy juice has [[UpToEleven 2.2 times the amount of caffeine/liter in a Cocaine can]], yet it comes only in 2oz bottles.

* Black teas are the tea equivalent, especially the strong, tannic Ceylon, Assam and Kenyan teas favored for "English Breakfast" blends, due to their strong taste and caffeine content compared to green and oolong teas. There's a reason why people add milk and sugar in countries where these teas are popular, such as India and the U.K. Too much of the average black tea can cause the same problems as coffee can. The only "advantage" using black tea over Coffee is that pure black tea tastes less intense so more people will drink it. A cup of black tea still has nowhere near the caffeine that a cup of coffee does, only containing the same amount as a can of cola. The L-theanine in tea takes the edge off as well.

* ''Literature/CiaphasCain'''s Valhallans have tanna, the 40K version of chifir (Russian prison tea). Cain downs the stuff without a problem, while Veil says it's definitely an acquired taste.

* ''Literature/CiaphasCain'''s Valhallans have tanna, the 40K version of chifir (Russian prison tea). Cain downs the stuff without a problem, while Veil says it's definitely an acquired taste. It becomes a running gag that if he goes more than a day without it he gets mild withdrawal symptoms and enough of a craving that he'll ask about it as soon as meets Valhallans again; after an event early in his career where he fought half-way across a planet after jokingly claiming it was to get some his aid started carrying a supply at all times.

* Possibly the closest thing to Klatchian coffee isn't actually based on coffee. It's a type of tea, called [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chifir%27 chifir']]. Chifir' is a perennial favourite in Russian prisons, and is made by taking two or three tablespoons of tea per person, pouring it on top of boiling water, and letting it boil for 15 minutes. The prisoners then drink 2 sips of it. Each. Anything more can cause heart attacks due to its caffeine content it is an entirely possible side effect of a caffeine overdose. Because boiling tends to extract tannins and glycosides in addition to the caffeine, this brew is also ''extremely'' bitter and strongly constipating.
** As a general rule Russians brew tea in two steps. First a so called "zavarka" is prepared an extremely strong brew (generally around five tablespoons per 1 liter of water), which is then diluted to taste by each drinker (traditionally using hot water from a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samovar samovar]]). Some don't dilute it at all and this extra strong tea is called "kupets" (merchant).

constipating.



** This tea is also consumed in Sudan and Yemen. Yemen is interesting, because they also chew ''qat'', which is essentially [[ThisIsYourPremiseOnDrugs caffeine on cocaine]].[[note]]Well, not quite; qat, or khat, is the leaf of the ''Catha edulis'' plant, which contains cathinone, which is a bit more like amphetamine than cocaine. The general effects are more or less the same.[[/note]]
** One should also remember that making Chifir' with sugar qualifies as attempted suicide because of how hard on the heart it is.



* [=RedBull=][[note]]As well as the ''[[FollowTheLeader many]]'' energy drinks created after its success.[[/note]]
** Sighted on Facebook by way of the "Funny Status" app: "I put Red Bull in my coffee pot this morning instead of water. Right now, [[TastesLikePurple I can see noises.]]"
** [[DeceptivelySimpleDemonstration It's nothing "magical"]]: a normal can (250ml) of Red Bull is as strong as a strong and similar sized cup of coffee[[note]]one Red Bull can has ~80mg of caffeine, the same quantity of instant coffee between 27mg and 170mg, it depends on how it's brewed[[/note]], yet the sweet taste and coolness during hot summer months may push the hapless guy to drink comparatively much more Red Bull than coffee, up to 4-6 cans (1-1.5 ''liters'') in a single sitting -it does not help that [[http://www.informacionmercadona.es/wp-content/uploads/EnergeticoHacendado.jpg certain]] [[http://i.imgur.com/avbvR4nh.jpg energy drinks]] come in bottles of 1.5 liters too-. Which may be fatal for someone who has increased blood pressure or a heart condition.



*** This is called cold brew and it has become wildly popular as of 2014-2015. There are many recipes and special equipment for it, but it can be as simple or complex as you care to make it.

Given the typhoid fever outbreak that was raging around at the time, these sailors might've been up to something, though. It's also known as "Baltic Tea", a neologism coined by the modern writer Creator/VictorPelevin.
** The other unfortunate side effect is this can, and has, led to a sort of home brew version of roid rage where drinkers become, for lack of a better word, overstimulated and go off the show from the combination of the caffeine hit and alcohol impairment.
