Does Greek coffee had more or less caffiene than espresso?
Thanks!Caffine is heat sensitive, and is affected by the roasting time rather than the brewing. Dark roasts, for instance, have lower caffine levels even if you start with the same beans.
My understanding is that espresso is based on the grind. It's a very fine grind, almost powder, which results in a very strong brew (based on equal amounts of coffee and water, that is).
