In brief: Allow 6-7 hours

Caffeine is the most consumed stimulant in the world, No sufficient research to encourage or discourage caffeine.
For the majority of healthy adults, consuming less than 400 mg of caffeine a day appears to be safe the half life of caffeine (the time to get rid of half the caffeine in your system) is about 5-6 hours, so it depends on the initial dose of caffeine that you drank during the day

In brief: Not after 2 pm

Caffeine overstimulates your senses.
If you ares sensitive to caffeine and its effects, avoid drinking any caffeine containing drink after 2pm as it generally takes 8 hrs for the effects of caffeine to wear off our system. This would allow you to have a quality sleep at night.
