Glaswegian Coffee Among the Strongest in Europe

By Gary Cutlack on at

Coffee enthusiasts in Glasgow may be unwittingly sailing through their daily caffeine quotas thanks to unusually strong brewing habits, with Scottish coffee even outdoing the enthusiastic Italians when it comes to strength.

The stats, which compared coffee strength in Span and Italy to Scottish blends, found that an espresso in the Scottish shops surveyed had a caffeine level that varied wildly between 72mg and 212mg per cup, while Spanish and Italian coffees peaked at 135mg per cup. That means guesstimating your caffeine intake by cup number could be a flawed method of keeping on top of your magic happy juice consumption. [BBC]
