    caffeine and cooking with coffee

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Have been reading some great recipe ideas for cooking with coffee grounds. eg. the coffee burger, coffee encrusted roast etc. I am curious as to how much caffeine would make it into the finished product? Can anyone shed some light on this?

    I havent tried any of these recipes as I am usually cooking for a family with 3 kids under 6. I really dont need them to have any caffeine :D

    I guess what I want to know is, if a roast was made encrusted with coffee, would it be safe for littlies to eat as long as they had the meat from the middle????

    Hmmm doubt there will be any exact answers for this one (could be wrong though). You would need to know the caffeine in the coffee to begin with, which varies quite a bit I think. Then as caffeine is water soluble work out how much water is transferred from the crust to the centre. My guess is not much, so in a long winded way without any real evidence I wouldnt think it would be too much. Test it on the most sensible one and see what they do, would be the safest way. Oh and do it for lunch rather than dinner ;D
