Neologisms: caffeinato, caffeinate (n.)

Caffeinato is, it turns out, the real Italian word for the noun caffeinate. Everyone uses caffeinate as a verb (action) but how about using it as a noun (thing) -- a synonym for java, joe, or caffeine?

Example: Steve said, "Gotta tank up with a mongo cup of caffeinato."
Example: In grad school, Tony kept going by dint of massive caffeinate intake."
