What’s in a name, that a coffee would be as strong?

What’s in a name, that a coffee would be as strong?

With the holidays upon us, many will be reaching for an extra mug to get through nights of wrapping gifts after the young ones are asleep, or maybe just the chance to sit back and sip admiring the tree you put so much effort in getting up… or maybe just ’cause its something warm to hold in your hands. Either way, you might have the same misconception as many about just how much caffeine is in your coffee.

Espresso doesn’t have the highest caffeine content, as many might think.

Our friends at FreshGround Roasting in Geneva, Il., share some great insight to how our larger cups of coffee may have much more caffeine than we might think, and even as small and mighty as we may believe our 1-2 oz. espresso friend may be, it doesn’t pack the greatest caffeine punch.

    Valid point about overall caffeine content BUT espresso is still more CONCENTRATED than drip coffee. An equivalent amount of oz. of espresso would be significantly more caffeine content. Grab a double shot and you are getting more caffeine in that 3 oz. than in the full cup of drip. Or grab a quad on ice (one of my personal favorites) and it’ll fuel you all day.

      Great point! Absolutely true! For now, we are just making comparison by whole “cups”/entire drink, not equal amounts. But yes, right on Brian!
