Enjoy you morning cup of along side this of the Adenosine Receptor in Complex with Caffeine 5MZP . The Adenosine Receptor is tinted shades of brown and the small molecule colored by atom type. 

Protein Description

Caffeine, the most widely used psychoactive compound, is a weak, non-selective antagonist of adenosine receptors. It promotes wakefulness by blocking adenosine A2A receptors (A2ARs) in the brain, but the specific neurons on which caffeine acts to produce arousal have only recently been identified. In rates, it was recently shown that the shell region of the nucleus accumbens (NAc) are responsible for the effect of caffeine on wakefulness. Source
