  • An acutal cup of espresso will have the most.
    The amount of coffee in a cup of regular coffee will vary from year to year and from how dark roasted the coffee is. Why? Darker roasted coffee has a little less since some is lost in the longer roasting process and the amount in the beans will vary in each variety of coffee bean and as the growing conditions change each year.
    By law, the amount in decaf coffee must be below a certain level so the old rumor of Starbuck's decaf being the same as anyone else's regualr is just a silly rumor.

  • By volume, espresso has the most caffeine, but since people usually have less espresso in an espresso drink (latte, cappuccino, frappe, etc) than they do when drinking cups of black coffee, they often consume less caffeine with the espresso drink. Does that make sense? If you were to drink a full coffee cup of espresso, it would have roughly 3 times the caffeine of brewed black coffee, in part because the method of making espresso extracts more caffeine than traditional brewing. Of the coffee beans themselves, there is little difference. Darker roasts actually have less caffeine by weight, because the roasting process eliminates some of the caffeine, and aribica beans have less caffeine that robusta.
