Caffeine Levels

Caffeine levels vary significantly from coffee to coffee. Two coffees might both taste good and strong, but one could have literally three times as much caffeine as the other!

Individuals who are sensitive to caffeine need to know the details of what they are drinking in order to have a comfortable coffee-drinking experience. To that end, we have made the caffeine comparison chart below. Hope this is helpful!

IMPORTANT: All these values are approximations, based on coffee species and altitude.
We recommend using these numbers as a way to compare one coffee to another, not a mathematical guarantee.

All numbers are milligrams per 8 ounce serving.
