Are you the real coffee fanatic? We can all understand that very well. There are many different types of coffee and there is always one that you really like. But it is not very good for your health if you drink a lot of coffee. There is caffeine in coffee that can have a (sometimes annoying) effect on your health. But how much caffeine is in a cup of coffee? We have selected that for you.
Coffee comes in all shapes and sizes
There are a lot of different coffees that all have a different composition. Logically, there are also different amounts of caffeine in coffees. But what types of coffee are there actually? We are not talking about types of coffee beans here, but what else is added to the coffee that creates different proportions. The basis of a coffee type is often espresso. This is quite strong coffee and bitter in taste. As soon as you add extra hot water, you have one americano. This name originated when the American soldiers in World War II added extra water to the Italian espresso. Do you add milk to your black coffee? Then you get a whole different range of coffees. You are probably familiar with cappuccino, latte, flat white and a latte macchiato. All these types have in common that milk and/or milk foam has been added. It is the ratio of milk and coffee that makes them all different coffees.
The amount of caffeine differs per type of coffee
Because there are so many different ways to brew coffee, you can probably imagine that the caffeine amounts vary. A 125 ml cup of filter coffee will contain about 56 to 85 milligrams of caffeine, depending on where you got the coffee from. The same goes for instant coffee. Espresso is stronger than ‘regular’ coffee and contains just a bit more caffeine, namely 67 mg per cup. You can therefore imagine that for the cappuccino, latte, latte macchiato and flat white it matters which type of ‘basic’ coffee you use. Of course you also have decaf coffee, coffee without caffeine. But did you know that that name is actually not quite right? Decaf coffee also contains a small amount of caffeine. Usually, decaf coffee still contains about 2.6 mg of caffeine. However, this amount is so small that you will feel little or no effect from it and it is therefore a better choice if you suffer a lot from the effect of caffeine.
