What's the brand of Coffee with the Highest Caffiene Content?

by Eddie Rankey
(Columbus, Ohio)


QUESTION:


What brand of coffee Folgers, Maxwell House, Chock full of Nuts, White Castle, etc., has the highest (or strongest) caffiene content? For example, what brand of coffee has the highest mgs. per once, that you can buy off the shelf at the local Kroger's or local grocery store?


ANSWER:

I really don’t know how those brands compare in their caffeine content.

There is information available on the varying caffeine content of coffee beans from different regions worldwide. And the way in which coffee is roasted and brewed can make a difference.

But I don’t know about the caffeine content of specific supermarket brands.

Anyway, let’s get the question out there...so maybe someone reading this will have a better answer and can add a comment below.

In the meantime, check out our page on caffeine in coffee.

Lighter is Better
by: Anonymous

Go for the lighter blends for more caffeine also the breakfast Blends tend to have more also. This is in the store brands you can find in the grocery stores. There are others but more expensive and you usually have to order those brands on line.

Silk Road by Catskill Organic was and still is the best. Unfortunately they are out of business.
Anyone know who else sells this?

Strong coffees.
by: I drink coffee

Speaking purely from my experience as a coffee drinker, generally motivated solely by the desire to drink a strong cup of the stuff, I generally go for Lavazza Espresso. But Nescafe Original is very strong too, compared to many others.

taste and kick
by: foodiechick

I read the Consumer Reports article too and started buying Eight O'clock coffee for an everyday coffee and supplementing it with Millstone Kona and other more expensive whole bean a couple days a week. I do, however, get a better caffeine buzz and better flavor from the Millstone Kona. It is more expensive so I will continue with the Eight O'clock and stock up when Millstone goes on sale.

Eight O'clock Coffee
by: Anonymous

I thought Consumers really blew it when they recommended Eight O'Clock coffee. The only thing good about it is the low price. If you are used to good coffee you will instantly realize what a nasty taste it has. But then what do a bunch of Yankees know about coffee anyway??

Juan Valdez of Columbia is carrying a huge backpack on a donkey of the rich delicious coffee bean.
I bought some Eight O'clock 100% Columbian
coffee beans you ground yourself and it smells
and taste better than any coffee I have ever
tasted but I noticed more of a caffeine effect.
I should add I am use to chicory so add some
of that coffee to it.

Check out Consumer Reports
by: Scott

The only rating by brand I have found is in Consumer Reports, and it is a great report. http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/magazine-archive/march-2009/food/coffee/ratings/coffee-ratings.htm

However, they do not include every brand. They point out that Millstone and Folgers have around 50mg /cup, but Caribou, Buck County and Archer Farms have over 180mg/cup.

The best tasting was Eight Oclock, and at 140mg/cup, has decent caffeine.

lighter is better
by: Marc the Shark

The darker the roast, the less caffiene there is so in actuality your basic cup of brewed Maxwell House will probably give you more than a French Roast from Star Bucks...Jamaican Blue Mountain gets my vote! The question is can you afford to buy it!
