Ever wonder about the relative level of caffeine in your drink? Wonder no more.

 

Using HPLC (high-performance liquid chromatography), R+D worked with the country’s pre-eminent coffee lab to measure the relative caffeine ratings in all our primary offerings.

 

This led to the development of a new standard - something we like to call CAF, or Caffeine Amplitude Formula.

 

CAF RATINGS

CAF 0 - No caffeine, but all the flavor.

CAF 1 – Modest levels of caffeine.

CAF 2 – Regular (as in not unleaded).

CAF 3 – That’s quite an eye opener.

CAF 4 – Seriously you can’t call it coffee without some coffee in it amiright? Can’t wait for it to hit me like wow what a day to be alive wait what day is it again don’t even matter because I am going to treat today like this is your last day, no wait, my last day on earth that’s why I really, really need this coffee and could you please put a rush on it…
