There are some surprising caffeine facts that makes people think they are drinking just too much coffee...

Coffee Caffeine Fact #1

Espresso has less caffeine per cup than regular cup. But if you find that you are irritable, or feeling nervous (twitchy!), you may want to switch to decaf in the afternoon or early evenings. Even a coffee lover has to slow down sometimes.

Coffee Caffeine Fact #2

The 'strength of the coffee' as perceived by many coffee drinkers often relates to three factors: the darkness of the roast, the amount of coffee used, and the amount of caffeine in the particular varietal.

Coffee Caffeine Fact #3

One surprising fact: darker roasts don't necessarily contain more caffeine than lighter roasts. Another: Arabica coffee beans are generally lower in caffeine than Robusta beans.

Coffee Caffeine Fact #4

Coffee, black coffee or espresso, is a very low calorie food that stimulates the body for a short period after consumption. Typically, the caffeine is processed by the body within an hour or so after drinking the coffee, meaning that the effects of a cup of coffee are largely very limited to that initial 'hit'.
