The Manimal Caffeine debate

The premise is Manimal sezzz there is more caffeine in Espresso than coffee. Well as it turns out he is correct, BUT it's a volume thing. So if I drank 12 oz of Espresso I'b be floating, instead of the normal 2 oz. This of course is all for your amusement and came about because my dog likes to eat roasted coffee beans. Well Starbucks beans because (for Overland) Dunkin (Duncan) is a yo-yo...

It's a matter of the number of beans that go into each drink.

A couple of years back I helped a poor fellow troubleshoot and fix his Syncro Van. He was so grateful he sent me a pound of coffee from his local shop, Port Townsand Coffee Roasting Co., a blend called Loop D' Loop. Makes Starblucks taste like Navy coffee by comparison. It seems to contain a less than lethal dose of caffeine. Defiantly will start the motor in the morning. Been ordering and using it ever since.

I drank a lot of Starbucks before I moved out here. Now that I've tasted what PNW roasters have to offer, I'll probably never buy Starbucks coffee again. The really amazing thing about the PNW is just how common great roasters are. These guys down the street is awesome but there are dozens more that are just as good in a 20-mile radius. Until recently, there wasn't a single place back home in San Antonio that could make a cup half as good as any random place on the corner in WA.

Bill, next time you're down in San Antonio, give these guys a shot: http://www.localcoffeesa.com/
They are the real deal.

Is it true that the lighter the roast the more caffeine? I thought I read that somewhere but can't remember. Which seems counter intuitive, but I thought they were saying the new blinds from Starbucks actually had more caffeine than the dark roasts.

One thing I miss about Alaska is all of the coffee shops on the side of the road or in parking lots. These are little drive through or walk up sheds that have some of the best coffee you ever had. For some reason a cute young lady always was working them. When I used to hitchhike along the Kenai Peninsula I would get dropped off near them (great place to find my next ride).

The day after graduating HS I flew from OK to Anchorage with nothing but a backpack and 2 fishing poles. I spend the summer hitchhiking all over the state fishing and sightseeing. That is when I got hooked on the coffee

It was great to finally meet you in person, Bill!

Actually, I said that espresso has less caffeine and less acid than drip or French press. A two shot 12oz americano has about 30% less caffeine and acid than a 12oz cup of drip coffee. It all comes down to brewing time and the amount of time the ground beans spend with the hot water. 15 sec versus 5min. In my opinion it improves flavor a bit when you reduce the acidity but that's a personal choice of course.

Have a great trip to Alaska and make sure to post some pictures!

This is typical for anyone to have long term memory loss and dimensia after drinking coffee made from coffee beans that were 1) picked before they were ready, 2) and then eaten and subsequently shat by ferrel dogs in the lowlands of Mexico, 3) then transported across the border to Portland in laundry bags overpacked in shipping containers sharing space with cartel coyote victims 4) and then finally roasted in restored pet cemetery crematoriums.

Starbucks should be indicted by international courts for civil and criminal violations by the UN. Unfortunately, 1/3 of the country to include almost all of NY where the UN is at are under the chemical addiction of Starbucks faux-cafe.
