11:00am: The first sip aftermath
Kara: "Things are feeling good. Things are clicking. I’m up. I’m typing really fast. I just spilled a little coffee on my shirt. I was a little too excited to get it into my mouth. That sounds terrible but I’m doing some stream of consciousness typing here. Also, my hands are shaking. Not a good combo."
Dave: "That tasted like a totally normal cup of coffee. It's well-balanced, if a little acidic. Definitely not like, frighteningly dark, thick, or overwhelmingly bitter. Sort of want another cup, as I drink about six cups of regular coffee per day, but I'm going to hold off for now."
Gianni: "The coffee itself was pretty normal, it tastes like strong coffee. I felt a fairly quick onset of caffeine rush as I was drinking it, but nothing completely out of control, and I can noticeably feel my heart beating in my chest. Again, though, it feels like a normal caffeine rush. No poop yet."
Michelle: "I feel no more energized than I would after a normal cup of coffee. Might need a second cup. Or a pint."
11:15am: Jeremy ignores scheduled check-ins
Jeremy: "I added this, because now I feel something. It's very hard to concentrate, and I feel super horny. Just kidding about the last part, but it's really hard to concentrate. I feel like I want to tell everyone everything I'm thinking, which is hard, because it's like a blender is going off in my head."
11:48am: Michelle listens to German electronica
Michelle: "On to my second cup! is this double-strength? The rim of the liquid looks orange. I admit I feel pretty caffeinated at this point, and I know this because I have the urge to write without punctuation and spam my team with Spongebob GIFs. Am currently listening to some Nils Frahm to calm down."
11:55am: Ryan's leg tremors are totally normal
Ryan: "Feel normal, but definitely have leg tremors."
12:00pm: Gianni gets existential
Gianni: "I've started drinking my second cup. This time, I'm told it's been brewed a bit stronger, and if nothing else it does indeed taste stronger -- like when you drank coffee for the first time as a kid, and it tasted like the bitter darkness you rightly assumed adulthood to be."
12:09pm: Gianni has to pee
Gianni: "Second cup is finished, urge to pee is rising."
