Can you taste caffeine?

I sure as hell can, it's got a sweet bite in any beverage which contains the chemical.

isn't that just because caffeine is often in sugary drinks

i've never noticed sweetness in stuff like coffee

Caffeine actually has a bitter taste.

Yuck. Yeah I can. It needs sugar syrup to mask it, that's why diet sodas taste so bad, lol.

you can find this really lame drink in supermarkets now that is called 'energy water'. It's just water with some caffeine, why would anyone pay for that? Someone let me taste it because she thought it tasted weird and indeed a slightly bitter taste from the caffeine. I'll drink normal water over that crap anyday. or a nice cup of coffee :thumbup:

I read an article about the 'energy water' invention a couple months ago. Apparently it was invented by some guy in college who did not like the taste of coffee and did not like all the sugar in caffinated sodas, but nevertheless needed caffeine to stay awake to cram for midterms/finals. He thought other people could benefit from this drink, so he commercialized it.

I'm sorry I cannot cite the article. I don't remember where I read it. A quick Google search might find the article, if one cares to read it.

yeah, i guess when i said "sweet bite" i really meant it had a killer bite to it, and it is indeed a bit bitter. glad all the rest of you can taste it in beverages.

Yeah caffeine does have a weird taste. Just go pick up a "caffeine-free Pepsi" and get a regular Pepsi and take a drink of both. The caffeine-free Pepsi will have a bit more of a "flat" or "bland" taste to it compared with the regular Pepsi or coke or mountain dew for that matter.
