Caffeine: Espresso vs Drip

A typical doppio (“double” in Italian) or 2 ounces of espresso only has 80-150 mg of caffeine.  It actually contains less caffeine than a standard 8 ounce drip coffee which contains 95-200 mg of caffeine.  It’s no wonder that Italians can drink a shot 2-3 times a day every day!
