  1. It’s not true. Caffeine content varies coffee to coffee (the beans, I mean). The Starbucks blends will contain multiple coffees that change each season. They’re roasted dark to homogenise the flavor year round, and roasting dark reduces the caffeine content. As far as I know, they don’t use the robusta species in their blends — robusta has considerably more caffeine by weight than arabica.
    So the caffeine content will be more or less the same as most other brands — in many cases less.
    The portions however may be quite a bit bigger, which, with filter brewed coffee at least, will deliver more caffeine.

  2. When you google caffeine content Dunkin Coffee for instance has considerably less caffeine per same size cup as Starbucks. From personal experience, I cannot tolerate Starbucks coffee due to the caffeine, despite my love for the French Roast, but I can tolerate the occasional Dunkin Donuts coffee.

  3. More caffeine compared to what?
    Starbucks uses Arabica coffee which has less caffeine than the Robusta kind…. So compared to, for example, Costa Coffee Starbucks has less caffeine, should anyway, because Costa uses Robusta in its blend… on the other hand Robusta has stronger flavor, which is why people that are used to drinking Costa coffee find Starbucks coffee blund and tasteless
