LISBON - What is caffeine? It's an alkaloid crystalline compound known as C8H10N4O2. It is found in coffee, tea, and other beverages. It can be made artificially and added to foods. It is considered a drug that stimulates the central nervous system making you more alert, boosting energy and affecting your mood. In its natural form it tastes bitter, but processing changes that. It is not stored in the body, but you can feel its effects for about six hours.
