When some 14 year old gets some drink with 8 shots in it tomorrow and dies, I hope you get arrested cause for most people that is A TON, if not an overdose. The milligrams of caffeine in a shot of espresso (depending on the size of a person) is usually enough to do the trick. If not, two is a good pick me up.

You are correct about roasting coffee. However, the difference is minimal and espresso is just different.

I think it depends on where you get your roasts. from. working for a major coffee chain, I can tell you our espresso has 75 mg of caffeine per 1 oz shot. , as compared to a 8.4 oz can of redbull, which has 80 mg, or a 20 oz Pepsi, which is usually 60-70 mg... Ounce for once, our espresso is actually more caffeinated than our regular brewed coffees. Our espresso machines are able to extract more from the beans, than a regular brewing method. I'm not that familiar with at home machines, but ours are the industrial kind, for how insanely busy most stores are. You are definitely correct though with the bulk of your comment, that the lighter the roast, the more caffeine the bean retains. Darker blends are definitely not as caffeinated. However, if someone came into my store, and ordered 8-10 shots in their mocha, I'd definitely warn them of the caffeine content that would have... up to 750 mg of caffeine!! Eeeck!!

Is there a reason stronger coffee makes some people feel more 'awake'. Is it a mental thing more than the actual caffeine itself or is there more to it than the caffeine?

dude caffeine is a stimulant. it also blocks the receptor in your brain responsible for sleep

Half correct, caffeine does get cooked out but espresso is a type of brewing method not how the bean is roasted ie (dark or light). They basically pump steam though the coffee grind for 20 seconds and u get an espresso. and steam is relatively less polar than liquid water so more organic material gets dissolved in it like caffeine :) so 8 shots is impressive if u use the right bean.

im a chemistry major noob and a coffee lover

You shouldn't just accept what you read. Have some dignity and pride and research things for yourself, whether you learn them on the internet or at school because he is only half correct. Espresso isn't roasted to death and does contain lots of caffeine. (Barista talking here who knows his **** )

Also, if you don't drink 5 cups of coffee daily, 8 shots will **** you up like Michael J. Fox. Careful kids.

So I guess you was raiding some place, and then you wrote: "FunnyJunk is here to help" Hope this isn't the case.
