Okay, for the first time ever I'm going to share my recipe for "Go-Go Juice" Which is hyper caffeinated coffee.

Get an espresso machine. Make a pot of espresso using especially strong grounds. I don't know about where you live but at my local coffee shop they have a blend that is supposed to have twice the normal amount of caffeine. Also instead of using regular water, use Water Joe.. caffeinated water. Once you have this pot done, empty the used grounds and put in fresh. Take the pot of espresso you just made and pour it BACK into the machine thus running through the machine twice.

I used to make pots of this for myself when I worked in Law Enforcement and during college when I needed to pull all nighters. Sure it makes you a little jittery and after so many days of living on it you will crash hard.

***Warning: May cause obnoxious fast speech and hyper giddyness.
