Hello tru2b,

Most people think of coffee as a stimulant because of the caffeine it contains and for many people it is.  However, there are folks that fall asleep  with coffee.  this is not unusual. There are over a hundred differnt compounds found in coffee that work differently in different peoples systems.  So, not to worry, your just fine.  I rarely drink coffee because it makes my stomach ache and I shake all over.  I feel like I'm going to fall apart.  So, I'm a green tea drinker.  Interestingly, green tea has caffeine (less than coffee) but it contains L-theanine (an amino acid) that counter acts the caffeine to calm you down.  Poison with antedote.  By the way, caffeine is a natural pesticide produced by plants.
