    For some reason I thought you had a missus who'd keep you in line on such things as appropriate times to be solving problems and such.
    Wait, you want me to follow rules now?

    Heh.. no I usually get 6 or 7 hours sleep which is just fine for me.

    Back on topic. Does anyone have experience of caffeine triggering migraines, and how one might know (short of giving it up and counting the migraines which is what I am doing now).

    Anyone found any good quality decaff coffee?

    You tried making it weaker? My father tends to get headaches if he drinks coffee but there again he just gave it up and is now on fruit tea!!! Personally I wouldn't wish nettle tea on anyone except as a de-hydrant!

    Anyhow I thought that recent research reckoned that migraines were chemical imbalances and hence not linked to tension?
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    I know people who get migraines that are triggered by caffeine but have no experience with it myself...

    Espresso contains very little caffeine. I haven't read all 100 previous posts, so this may be no news, but caffeine takes 30 seconds to dissolve in water. So if you make your espresso in less than that, dose should be very limited and far more tasty than most decaff's.

    I actually have very good experience with Nespresso's decaff. Not cheap but very tasty...

    From what I've heard, decaf coffee only removes most of the caffeine, leaving about 3% of it. I've also heard of health concerns about the chemicals (methylene chloride) they use to remove the caffeine.

    You might be better off trying to drink something without caffeine naturally.

    EU standard is that only .1% is left, and since I see you're English...
    In my family, there is a persistent group that drinks "coffee" made of acorns. I loathe the idea, but they are very satisfied with this alternative...
