Nutrition Q & A

If I am Trying to Cut Back on Caffeine, Will Switching from Espresso to Coffee Help?

Actually, espresso has less caffeine than coffee! On average, one 8-ounce cup of brewed coffee has 85 milligrams of caffeine, and one ounce of espresso (plain or in a coffee-drink) has 40 milligrams. If you are trying to decrease your caffeine intake, consider changing to black or green tea (with 40 milligrams of caffeine per 8-ounce serving) or half regular coffee and half decaffeinated coffee (41 milligrams of caffeine per 8-ounce serving).

If you normally drink quite a bit of caffeinated beverages, be sure to cut back slowly. For some people, cutting back quickly will cause headaches and drowsiness for the first few days.
