COFFEE-LOVERS be warned. Whether you are a three-double-espressos-a-day addict or just indulge in the occasional cappuccino, enjoy it while you can: a coffee drought may be on its way. Changing climate threatens to reduce the flow of coffee that fills 1.6 billion cups a day to a trickle. It may not be long before that after-dinner espresso costs more than the wine and some caffeine addicts will be forced to go cold turkey.

The actual end of the world.

Who needs coffee when you can inhale your caffeine? Okay, it sounds weird to us, too. And now the FDA isn’t so sure that inhalable caffeine, sold in lipstick-sized canisters, is actually healthy.

FDA officials plan to investigate whether AeroShot, sold in a canister for a quick, 100-milligram hit of caffeine, is safe for consumers.
Because it is marketed as a dietary supplement, AeroShot did not require FDA review before hitting the U.S. market, going on sale last month in Massachusetts and New York. It is also available in France.
It was invented by Harvard biomedical engineering professor David Edwards, who claims it is safe and free of taurine and other common additives used to enhance the caffeine effect in energy drinks.

Reaching for a mug of coffee may be the worst thing you can do to try to sober up, a study suggests.

Research on mice indicates the drink may make you feel that you are coming to your senses - but it is only an illusion.
In fact, it makes it harder for people to realise they are under the influence of alcohol.

Drinking coffee ‘will not sober you up’ when drunk

The study, by Temple University in Philadelphia, appears in the journal Behavioural Neuroscience.
