Do you have trouble tolerating Robusta?

Time for another shot of Saka Gran Bar Top Selection Arabica. :wink:
indeed, I can drink a double ristretto sitting on my bed, drop in and sleep in 10 minutes...when I have a coffee 'somewhere else' I can stay awake for hours and it always turns out it was a blend with Robusta..nowadays I can spot the taste and simply don't finish the cup.

I've always been pretty tolerant of caffeine having worked night shifts for years. But, I cut way back on it 6 months ago to rule out potential causes of my migraines, and all I ever drink is arabica. I immediately noticed I was sleeping better, and had less of a tendency to wake up in the middle of the night too. Maybe age is making me less tolerant of the caffeine. :(

Certainly, a lack of coffee would cause an increase in suicides, so that part makes sense. 8)
