Caffeine Trivia 10.05.13

Contrary to what most people think, espresso coffee actually contains about 1/3 the caffeine level of a normally brewed cup of coffee. This is partially due to the fact that espresso is typically made using top premium arabica beans. Arabica beans have a lower caffeine content than robusta beans found in many coffee blends used for standard brewing.

Personal note: To all my friends who tell me I’m crazy for having espresso at night…while you drink “American” coffee…you’re the ones consuming more caffeine than me!
