How Much Caffeine?

Have you ever wondered how much caffeine your cup of Starbucks Coffee contains?

Interestingly enough, most people think that a "mocha" or a "latte" has more caffeine in it than regular coffee. Not true. A regular cup of Starbucks coffee has more than any of their fancy schmancy drinks.

From the site:

The average American adult consumes about 200 milligrams (mg) of caffeine a day, and the top ten percent consume an average of 400 mg, according to John J. Barone, who tracks caffeine consumption at The Coca-Cola Company in Atlanta.
I'm sick. I really am. There are days that I consume 2 "Grande" size Starbuck coffees which contain over 500mg of caffeine each.
