Nuclear Coffee


I recently wrote about weapons-grade ratatouille on our recipe blog; my hero Adam @ Home has gone one better: Nuclear Coffee!

People often ask me, by the way, about what coffees are "stronger" and I rarely have a good answer. High-quality arabica coffees are actually lower in caffeine than the robusta coffee used in cheaper blends, such as Maxwell House. And the darker the coffee has been roasted, the lower the caffeine will be.

Of course, high "dosing" -- spoons per cup prior to brewing -- can make a difference, as can adding multiple shots of espresso in a single beverage. Each serving of espresso has less caffeine than a standard cup of coffee, but some coffee drinks might have four to six servings!
