The coffee brewing method with the most caffeine is typically espresso. Espresso is the brewing method that extracts a higher amount of caffeine per ounce compared to other common methods.
Here's a rough estimate of the caffeine content per ounce for some of the more common brewing methods:
1. Espresso: Espresso is super concentrated and typically contains about 60-65 mg of caffeine per 1-ounce shot. We recommend our espresso fino blend for a chocolate and roasted nut-forward espresso.
2. Cold Brew: Cold brew coffee can have a higher caffeine content due to the extended time the water is in contact with the coffee, around 15-20 mg per finished ounce. We recommend our Cold Brew blend, blended specifically for cold Brewing.
3. Drip Coffee: Drip coffee typically has around 12-16 mg of caffeine per ounce, but this can vary based on factors like coffee bean type and brewing strength. So the more coffee you add to your coffee maker the stronger your brew and the more caffeine it will have. We recommend our Dark Roast blend, Colombia, or Ethiopian Coffees if you like something lighter and fruitier.
3. French Press: French press coffee usually has a similar caffeine content to drip coffee, around 12-16 mg per ounce again this can vary depending on how much coffee you add to your French press. We recommend a heavier roasted coffee, like our Brazil or Sumatra.
These numbers are general estimates and can vary based on the specific coffee beans, grind size, and brewing methods used. Keep in mind that serving size also plays a significant role in determining your overall caffeine intake.
