    Even though this is very a very old thread I'll bite...

    Caffeine blocks adenosine receptors on nerve cells, which is what causes the stimulant effect since adenosine inhibits transmission at synapses. Adenosine also affects blood vessel dilation. After frequent use caffeine use, there is a disproportionate response to normal adenosine levels when caffeine is discontinued. The blood vessels dilate and voila headache.

      As a coffee addict of long-standing I can relate. I MUST have coffee in the morning or I will have a splitting headache by afternoon. People have tried to "fool" me by making decaf and not telling me. Well...I can't tell the difference by taste, but I figure it out by afternoon when the headaches start.

      I can, however, tell the difference in the smell of the unbrewed/raw grounds. Decaf grounds smell like cat urine to me! (sorry to any decaf fans out there).

        Not terribly surprising. Some extraction processes use oils extracted from green coffee to help increase caffeine solubility without losing too many other flavor components. The balance of aromatic compounds is likely as not altered and would be detectable to a good nose.

        If you are really interested in plants as chemists the online textbooks by the Palomar College Arboretum make some interesting reading.

          Very interesting! As a child, I wanted to be a botanist when I grew up...but then found myself gravitating more towards the social sciences. I still find plants fascinating, though!

              Even if I take a Tylenol or something it does not relieve the pain!! :34: Oweeeeeeee!!

              Although, if I go and get a cup of hot coffee it disappears?!
              Is my brain addicted to coffee? I try to stop drinking it, but I can't the pain is too much, and I find myself giving in to the calls of the coffee!! :Cry

                hmm

                What a coincidence I was just thinking that I wanted to give up coffee all together starting today and this thread is revived.
                It is 9:01 and I have not had my coffee.

                      Lately I have been a tea drinker... coffee if not a flavoured one doesn't taste good any more for me.... I used to drink on average about 10 cups a day. Now if I get 1 cup on weekends I am good! I found out for me that it triggers migraines!!! So if I know I want a coffee all I have to do is think of the pain and then smile and say no thanks!!

                          Tibiki,
                          Didn't realize coffee could trigger a migraine I can certainly understand your switch to tea.

                          Eagle Plumes,
                          Wow that takes some strength of character for sure. I keep scrimping on the milk and sugar. Coffee just doesn't taste all that great without that.

                          I got spoiled working at that coffee shop. Now my ordinary coffee just isn't as good :(

                            I like mine black, sometimes around the hollidays if they have a mint or a gingerbead creamer I will drink it that way. I love going into coffee shops and ask what do you have to drink? And then ask for names every roast they have lol Then I say ill just have coffee, heehee the they are like are you for real? lol

                                Coffee Headaches

                                This is great

                                Natasha,
                                What effect is my admittedly excessive caffeine consumption 5 or so cups a day of high-quality coffee, usually black with some sugar having on me. It does make me feel awake, alert, and not hungry. What could be wrong with that? And it tastes good.
