Do You Know How Much Caffeine You're Drinking?

September 13, 2012

Judging by the line I see every morning at the coffee shop down the street from where I live, it seems that we’re a city, a country and maybe a world running on caffeine.
It would be actually fascinating to see what would happen if we took caffeine out of the picture for just one day. I don’t think much will be achieved, but who knows...
Anyway, this is not my point. My point is: do you actually know how much caffeine are you getting each day?
If you’re not sure, take a look at this infographic below.
It’s accurate and very accessible. You can find the original file here, along with a detailed explanation of how this infographic was created alongside the data collected. It’s too bad that there’s no reference to tea (especially green tea, which is my only source of caffeine), but the creators did an awesome job in displaying how much caffeine contain the most notorious drinks you can find today on the market.

The Iron You


  1. I have been on the Paleo challenge from the beginning of the month and said good bye to coffee for 30 days, I actually didn't think it would affect me but the first 2 days I had shocking headaches which I think was from the sugar detox as well. But those 3 coffees I normally have each day will definitely not be returning on a regular basis once my challenge has finished. I plan to only drink decaff and not everyday!
