November 5, 2004, Newsletter Issue #26: Less Caffeine in Dark Roast?

Tip of the Week


I received an email last week from someone who believed that dark roasted coffee contained less caffeine. The idea being that the increased roasting time would `burn off` or evaporate some of the caffeine.

I had never heard of such a thing, but thought I should look into it anyway. I asked two of the most knowledgeable people I know in the coffee business and here`s what they told me: It`s not true!

And thank goodness. For myself, I need a dark roast with as much caffeine as possible to wake me up each morning!
