peveleth, It is better if you start a post in the forum with your question. These shouts go away in time.

For Gene Cafe Roasters I have an older Gene Cafe Roaster. Temp fluctuates probably showing age. Question: For recent owners of the newer Gene Cafe Roaster, your opinions?

Morning Ed, I haven't done any green coffee hoarding yet but am hoping the supplies don't end up like the toilet paper isles!

caffeine content?
kwrcst
Good morning all

This may be a dumb question but is there a bean that has more kick than others? I see ad's online for things like "Deathwish" coffee and a few others that are suppose to be crazy strong and I wonder what bean they use. I like a good strong espresso and wondered how to find out what greens are on the market that are stronger than others as far as caffeine goes

thanks

As far as I know, Death Wish use a lot of robusta, which has about twice the caffeine content of arabica, however it's not as tasty. Personally I recommend that if you want twice as much caffeine you should stick to the beans that make the coffee taste the best and drink twice as much coffee. :)

There is a paper that looked at the content of beans of a different origin from some local coffee shop. The Costa Rican coffee had the highest content, but they don't say anything about whether it's pure arabica or not.
