  1. Sounds like you’re just a little jittery after a hit of espresso – if you had a flat white AND an espresso, that’s two heavily caffeinated drinks within a short period of time. It’s been suggested that eating a banana (because of its levels of potassium) can help level out too much caffeine, but i’d suggest you just drink some water, get some fresh air, and don’t back to back the coffee!

  2. Yes
    Coffee activates a bodily hormone that releases adrenalin into your system.
    If you’ve tried to stay awake for a long time, you’ll notice you start to twitch from the adrenalin running out. Your nervous system is put under alot of pressure to keep working after its spent. You may also see triatheletes twice after a race to.
    Some people react to coffee this way, especially with large doses. I’ve noticed people with higher weight, don’t seem to be affected as easily. I think fat or energy (full stomach) may be the catalyst.
    If that’s an ongoing issue I highly recommend good quality leaf tea. It helps focus, without switching your body up to 6th gear. No crashes mid way through either.
    Otherwise manage your dose, and work out how many grams you can handle, over what time. There’s a sweet spot in there. Also espresso seems to have a stronger effect than filter coffee (I blame the ultra short brewing time), so try out batch or pour-overs.

  3. I’ve heard similar reports of this and my guess is you are simply more sensitive to caffeine than others.
    If so, try strong dark black tea or green tea and see if you get a similar response. If you do, you are sensitive to caffeine.
    If not, then it maybe other compoundsn coffee or the combined effect of the caffeine and sugar. This does give your body a strong boostcwhuch can manifest itself in “the shakes”

  4. Caffeine burn – you’ve had slightly too much caffeine on an empty stomach. Eat something, drink water and burn off the caffeine

  5. Actually, caffeine affects different people uniquely. It depends on your metabolism and how it deals with the stimulant, or how much you consume. I guess it isn’t really what you want happening (the shaking) but my sister does feel a buzz and ‘supercharged’. But when I drink coffee, nothing happens. Guess I’m lucky!
