I've read that caffeine gives a bigger boost in the afternoon than in the morning.

Having more coffee is an "it depends" situation. The CoffeeChemistry site states drip coffee contains 8 to 15 mg caffeine per oz, which means 80 to 150 mg in 0.3 liters/10 oz. Drink 2, you have 160 to 300 mg, and 3 is 240 to 450 mg.

If your coffee is on the weaker side, drinking 3 in the morning and another in the PM is still under the 400 mg that is listed in various places as a maximum. If the coffee is stronger, then drink 2 in the morning and 1 in the PM.

Most people have a lag in the afternoon. Since you're experiencing this, it may make sense to restrict the morning to 2 cups and have another between 1 and 3 PM (drink it 30 minutes before the time you typically feel yourself lagging).

In addition ...

I drink a 16 oz glass of water when I first wake up. Supposedly the water forces your internal systems to wake up to process the water. I find it effective. I drink coffee after that, but that's a want, not a need.

Another point is to drink water all day. Mild dehydration causes the mind to slow down. Drink water when you first wake up, then drink another 8 oz every time you use the bathroom. You stay hydrated all day, and it will keep you from sitting too long ...
