nope. I used to work at starbucks. I forget the total ammount of shots in a venti, but it can't be more than 3 or 4. A shot or two more of espresso wouldn't hurt you, but you might get a bit of headache/nausea similar to smoking more cigarrettes than you're used to. That's assuming if you've smoked. Regardless... go for it.

You called espresso eXpresso.

You'll be fine. Probably. But too much caffeine can, in my experience, cloud your thought...

Caffeine is great because it's a self-regulating drug. You will get wired and jittery and nauseaus long before you consume dangerous quantities.

OF COURSE it's called espresso in italian but i'm not of the communistic persuasion so i translated it
the /s/ phoneme in italian (fricative alveolar-dental) is often translated to /ɛks/. example- sesso= sex QED btw, the extra coffee was awesome, but a gay barista tried to hit on me

Caffeine doesn't really seem to phase me. I had a super long/busy day last month and had 6 shots within 6 hours or so. Didn't help at all. Was working on like 3 hours of sleep and fell asleep shortly after my 6th shot.

Also expresso is a mispronunciation. Your example makes no sense...

sesso= sex so the "ss" turns to an eks sound. But its espresso not esspresso. So...?

Fuck I have no idea. All I know is that as a barista all of the italians/greeks/french/british people say espresso. Most american people say espresso, only people that say expresso are basically first time customers or people who usually get coffee...

Also wiki says that expresso is a mispronunciation!
