    So as a dare I tried a spoonful of dark roasted black coffee not the actual drink but the powder/ or beans and now I feel my heart beating really fast after 5 hours and I feel dizzy and I can’t sleep and I’m worried that I’ll die or my heart will stop working I’m only 15

    Well this is a massive overreaction. Coffee powder makes coffee, all you've done is exactly the same as drinking a cup of coffee. That same amount of coffee powder and thus the same amount of caffeine would be in your body if you had just had a cup of coffee. You've basically had a cup of coffee, it's the same thing. All adding water does is make it more tolerable to swallow.

    Your heart is beating fast and you feel dizzy because you're not used to caffeine (it's a stimulant), clearly you don't have it on a regular basis. For people like me who drink several cups of coffee a day, we're used to the effects as we've been drinking it for a while.

    No, you would literally need 100+ cups of coffee in the same day to be in the region of dying: 'The lethal dose of caffeine for most people, says Temple, is about 10 grams, although this varies from person to person. A cup of coffee has around 100 to 200 milligrams of caffeine.'

    Caffeine powder is mentioned, which is not coffee powder. Caffeine powder is pure caffeine with no traces of coffee, it's like drinking pure ethanol vs beer.
