In English you have all these double consonants:

BB
CC
DD
FF
GG
KK
LL
MM
NN
PP
RR
SS
TT
VV
ZZ

And as far as I know, in most words, whether you duplicate or not, it doesn't affect how the word sounds, so they are pretty much a waste of space (and a spelling nightmare).

In Spanish we only duplicate
CC
NN

Normal Spanish words do not duplicate BB, DD, FF, GG, HH, JJ, KK, PP, QQ, SS, TT, VV, XX, YY or ZZ; only foreign words like pizza would have these unusual combinations, and if you see two consonants, unlike in English, you must pronounce them twice, clearly and using twice the time than if there was only one consonant. The combinations LL and RR are not exactly duplications, but digraphs, with their own pronunciation.

"Suficiente" is written with a single "f".
