In brief: Depends
Depends on size and age of the person, and what else is in the system, but the half life is 3 to 12 hours.

In brief: Depends on dose
The more caffeine you drink, the higher the initial level.
After4-6 hours your level will drop. Some of us are more sensitive, and after one cup of coffee will have effects for more than 12 hours.
