How much caffeine is in each capsule?

Most all of our espressos contain caffeine within the range of 50-100 mg per cup. This includes Original Espressos and Espresso Lungos, and Vertuo Espressos, Gran Lungos, and Double Espressos.

Based on their Robusta content, the following are exceptions: Vertuo Espresso Diavolitto contains 150 mg of caffeine, and Original Kazaar and Nespresso Professional Ristretto Intenso contain 120 mg per cup.

All Vertuo coffees (7.77 oz.), including XL (14 oz.), have a range of 170-200 mg per cup. Due to its higher volume, the Carafe Pour-Over Style coffee (18 oz.) contains over 200 mg of caffeine per complete capsule serving; because this particular coffee is intended to be enjoyed over multiple “cups”, this still meets our standards for the 200 mg ‘per cup’ limit.

As coffee is a “live” product, caffeine content may vary, and so we are only able to provide a range of caffeine (with exceptions as above) in order to be as accurate as possible. Also, coffees within the same size range can fall lower or higher within the caffeine spectrum: for example, Fortado contains higher levels of Robusta than other Gran Lungos, and so would contain more caffeine than its Gran Lungo counterparts.
