* 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.

Compare GargleBlaster for very strong alcoholic drinks. May overlap with HideousHangoverCure or {{Uncoffee}}. If it's powerfully ''bad'' coffee rather than simply powerful, it's BadToTheLastDrop.

* Ralphie May describes his first experience with Cuban Coffee. By his description, an ounce is equal to about five shots of espresso and are normally served in "baby doll tea-cups", which some can only drink half of. He didn't know that and demanded a full cup (equal to 84 shots of espresso). It took 25 minutes to brew, was far more expensive than he expected, did not change color when cream was added, took 30 minutes to drink, caused instant PottyFailure as soon as he stood up, and left him shaking for ''98 hours.''

* In ''Wicked Japanese for the Business Traveler'', a semi serious phrasebook, it mentions Japanese tea. "Clear, bitter and still boiling when it hits the roof of your mouth." The phrases associated with it translate to: "Honorable tea? Yes please! I had some when I got off the plane last week. I haven't slept since. I have many evil thoughts. Do you know where I can score a dime bag of the stuff?"

* Regular old Turkish coffee gets a mention in the ''EnchantedForestChronicles'' by Patricia Wrede, with a mild twist. The dragon who was King before Kazul took the throne loved him some Turkish coffee brewed strong enough to take the roof off a dragon's mouth. No one's particularly surprised that his assassin just decided to poison his coffee; Kazul comments that you could have boiled a whole field of dragonsbane in a cup of the King's coffee and it wouldn't have changed the taste or texture enough that he'd have noticed.

* ''WesternAnimation/CowAndChicken'': Chicken tries "Coffee Flakes" breakfast cereal, which not only gives him an absurd amount of energy and prevents him from sleeping for 3 days, but prevents him from ''closing his eyes''! In the end, he goes mad from the sheer energy and only a heaping dose of warm milk from Cow finally brings him down.

* 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 nonlethal caffeine overdose. Because boiling tends to extract tannins and glycosides in addition to the caffeine, this brew is also ''extremely'' bitter and strongly constipating.
