Where did the name come from?

Years ago, when I first started my software development career, there was a coffee shop between the nearest bus stop and our office, they served what they called a Jolt:

  • triple shot of expresso
  • Shot of caramel
  • Poured over ice.

This served as my wake up for many years, and continues to be a regular drink I get in the morning before some heavy coding.
