  • Death by Caffeine

    Hi I was searching for information on how much caffeine is in a standard/average shot. I am trying to work out if I am having too much. Since I have been home roasting my intake has increased (it just taste sooooooogoooooood).

    Anyway I found a calculator that tells you how many shots it take to kill you; I found it terrible amusing and had to share it.

    I am not sure how accurate it is maybe it’s correct?

    It is on this page:

    Pretty sure this was discussed in a thread a few months back -- I cant remember the actual numbers tho. Try the search function (or google with site set to coffeesnobs)

          Hi Simone,

          Yes you are correct but it was the amusement of the calculator I needed to share.

          Cheers

            I figure my doppio ristretto probably has about the same caffeine content as a Charbucks espresso--so that means 200+ coffees at a sitting!

            I reckon after 100 Id have a hard time holding the cup steady to drink any more!

              Oops -- sorry, totally missed the emphasis on the calculator  :-[

              Sooo -- lets see: 18g per double == 180 - 270 mg caffeine, so sometime after my 37th double I can expect (ta-da!!!) a nasty case of Death.... Sadly, the calculator doesnt say what sort of timeframe this has to happen in... if its under an hour I dont think my Silvias going to be up for it  

              (actually, better make that two hours)

                Little OT sorry, but the plutonium is often described as the most toxic substance known to mankind. US activist Ralph Nader repeated this claim, and in response Dr Bernard Cohen volunteered to eat as much plutonium as Nader would caffeine in an attempt to demonstrate the folly of the claims. Nader didnt take him up on it.
