Subject: different caffeine delivery?
 

I've always been amazed at how a Hammerhead (or whatever your local shop calls it) always gives me a much stronger buzz than simply drinking twice as much espresso.  There's something about the way I digest this drink that makes it stronger than the espresso and the coffee separately.  The buzz reminds me of a yerba mate buzz.

Called a "depth charge" at Caribou Coffee here in Atlanta. They also do them much better than Charbux.
But that bar is pretty low isn't it?

My local coffee shack calls this a "Red Eye" also, but it only has one shot.  Once I get my espresso machine next week...I'll be making these

It would be a Red Eye here in Charlotte,NC. And it sure is a great pick me up.

Here's a new, incredibly dull one:

Eye Opener

My eyes weren't very opened by it, it was too acidic (from the Costa Rican coffee)

Up here in Anchorage we call this drink a "sludge cup".

You get the gist...
