Why does caffeine seem to have the opposite effect on me?

For some reason, whenever I drink coffee, instead of feeling all perked up and alert like you're supposed to, I get extremely tired instead. I can tolerate a cup or two without the effects being too adverse (which is good, because I love the taste of coffee), and copious amounts of tea seems to have a similar effect on me too.
Oddly enough, despite being exhausted enough to just drop dead, I'm unable to sleep under the effects of coffee either.
Can someone explain to me why this student staple doesn't seem to work for me?
