Coffee is more than just caffeine. There are a lot of ingredients in this drink. I am only going to name a few. But it also depends on what you put in your coffee or how you like it. The first thing obviously is caffeine and this is what gives you all of the energy.  The second ingredient is water, that’s an obvious one as well. The third thing is Ethylphenol. This Creates a tarlike, medicinal odor when you wake up. The fourth item is is Quinic acid, this gives coffee a sour flavor. The fifth ingredient is Dicaffeoylquinic acid. Another one of these long ingredients is Dimethyl disulfide. This is a product of roasting  the green coffee bean. The rest are Acetylmethylcarbinol, Putrescine, Trigonelline, and Niacin.
