Ah, what be in that magic brew anyway? Every wondered that? – well, we have. There are some great books about coffee and different cultures that consume coffee as well as the scientific information about YOUR (and OUR) favorite drink.
Caffeine Content: 65 to 215 milligrams in an 8 oz cup. Caffeine content depends on how you brew the coffee, the type of coffee beans, and even how the beans were roasted. A finer grind of coffee releases more caffeine, as well as the obvious ‘the more grinds you use, the stronger the coffee = more caffeine!’.
Does a darker roast mean more caffeine?
Not at all. The longer (darker) the bean is roasted, the LESS caffeine it has.
