Caffeine
is a natural substance (alkaloid), which can be found in coffee, tea, cocoa, mate and guarana.
The amount of caffeine in coffee varies from 0.5% - 2.5%.
The World Health Organization, has stated that, “There is no evidence whatsoever that caffeine use has even remotely comparable physical and social consequences which are associated with serious drugs of abuse”.
Espresso contains less caffeine than filter coffee! Due to the fact, that the beans for espresso are roasted longer than the beans for filter coffee, they contain less caffeine. During the roasting procedure, which takes either longer or the beans are roasted on a higher degree, which means that more caffeine is “taken out” of the beans. Another factor for the smaller amount of caffeine in espresso is that during the relatively short brewing time, more caffeine and tanning agents are left behind in the coffee substance. A single shot of espresso contains about 50 – 60mg caffeine, a cup of filter coffee about 60 – 100mg.
