there is coffee and dreams http://ld4all.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2964&highligh t=coffee
but I don't think the different types of coffee were mentioned separately.

there is also caffeine

The active ingredient in coffee is caffeine, so once you remove the caffeine, then all you have left is a hot, strongly-flavored beverage. Perhaps it would have a psychological effect on you by the power of suggestion, but I can't think of anything in decaf coffee that would work for or against you.

wouldn't that strongly flavoured substance have to contain some chemicals? it's only water until it has flavour. i'm no expert on coffee though, you could be right.
maybe someone can look deeper into it, there always a demand for new LD enhancing substances right?

The compounds in coffee that give it its flavor might have some sort of effect on the body. I'm just a passionate coffee drinker (regular and decaf) and can't think of a time it did anything for me dream-wise. smile

But I could be wrong! Experiment and let us know how it goes.

I was reading another thread about using herbs and their scents to stimulate parts of the brain. The smell of coffee itself might have an effect. Again, let us know how it goes.

To me, coffee's got way too much of a caffeine kick to be good for sleeping/dreaming. Hot tea, maybe?

(But don't do Southern-style tea with tons of sugar! That always gets my heart racing.)
