Understanding Coffee: What is in Your Cup?

From lattes to espressos, knowing what’s in your cup can make your brew experience even better. At Beanies Flavour Co, we love coffee and value how much caffeine is in each sip you drink.


How many milligrams of caffeine is in coffee?

For every 100 grams of coffee, there is 40mg of caffeine. A typical coffee cup holds about 8 to 10 ounces, approximately 226 to 283 grams. Therefore, the average caffeine content in a standard cup of coffee ranges from 90 to 113mg.

The caffeine content in coffee can differ based on the type of coffee, cup size, and where you buy it. The amount of caffeine in a cup can range from 0mg to 500mg.

How much caffeine is there in pods?

Coffee pods are great for brewing coffee quickly and easily. This means that the average caffeine in a coffee pod can range anywhere between 90 and 100mg. Remember, various coffee pod brands and types can contain different amounts of caffeine and strengths.


Our coffee pods include 90-130mg of caffeine per pod.

Is 200mg of caffeine a lot?

For many people, consuming 200mg of caffeine per day is not too much. This is particularly true if you typically have 1 or 2 caffeinated beverages every day. Most healthy adults should limit their caffeine intake to 400mg per day. Experts recommend limiting coffee intake to four cups, but remember to consider your own caffeine tolerance and sensitivity.

What is the process of making instant coffee?

Manufacturers make instant coffee with ground and roasted coffee beans. Instant coffee production uses hot water and high pressure to extract the water-soluble coffee from the beans. The extract then cools.

To achieve the highest strength, the coffee is heated again to increase the concentration. It is then freeze-dried to create the instant granules that we all know and love.

Like all coffee, it begins with quality beans.

What is the origin of coffee beans?

Coffee beans come from the coffee plant, as their name suggests. The beans we are familiar with are actually the seeds of the plant’s fruits. This plant mainly grows in the Bean Belt, located near the equator. South America, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia all collectively contribute to the majority of the global coffee production.


We make our pods with 100% Arabica coffee beans. Coffee produced with Arabica beans has a sweeter taste because it has less caffeine, making it less bitter. A great choice for all coffee lovers, whether you’re new to coffee or an experienced home barista.
