How Much Caffeine Level in Cold Brew Coffee

Mar 5th 2020 at 1:36 AM

Many people think that those who drink iced coffee will have difficult to sleep at night if they drink cold coffee. The fact is they are difficult to sleep after drinking coffee due to the body's reaction to coffee caffeine.

For espresso, it is not certain how many mg of caffeine is contained in a single espresso, because it refers to the coffee beans used. Each espresso dish in many places has their own recipe, whether using arabica or a blend of arabica and robusta.

Of course, robusta caffeine levels are higher than arabica. Based on the level of roasting, dark roast has more caffeine content than light roast.

But determining what kind of coffee dish that has more caffeine levels is not absolutely seen from the roasting level, because caffeine levels can vary in each coffee dish. Simple, the same coffee beans with different coffee ratios also have different levels of caffeine content.

Many factors cause different levels of caffeine seen from the type of coffee, grind size, brewing time, roasting levels and also the type of coffee blend.

Caffeine Content of Cold Brew and Manual Brew

Without a detailed caffeine content calculation approach, at a glance you already know that caffeine is a compound that can dissolve by water. The caffeine in coffee extracted maximally with hot boiling water, this explains that the serving of cold coffee is less caffeine levels.

To maximize the extraction of caffeine levels from the coffee is better to use hot water than cold brewing such as cold brew method that use water at cold or ordinary temperatures.

But the problem is that if the factors that cause caffeine levels are the type of coffee, grind size, the time of brewing, then it cannot be rushed to conclude this. The ratio of cold brew is generally twice as much as manual brew. This also needs attention.

And the time for brewing is longer than manual brewing. Then whether the cold and manual brew caffeine levels can finally be said to have the same caffeine levels.

It's possible, but generally a cold brew dish will add some ice cube and a little taste syrup to give a more delicious impression. If we can conclude from this example, cold brew is less caffeine than manual brew.
