    To 'have a tolerance' for something means to be able to sustain its presence with none of its usual effects. In this case, to build up tolerance to caffeine means to accustom the body to the presence of caffeine so that it no longer has the physical effects it may have had on first exposure. Someone with a tolerance for caffeine might be able, for example, to drink a strong cup of coffee just before going to bed and still be able to fall asleep.

    Best wishes,
