Tea leaves have more caffeine than coffee beans before they are brewed. however, tea is diluted quite a bit more than most coffees. The amount of caffeine in coffee or tea depends on a number of factors, including the method and length of brewing or steeping.
Steaming milk until it reaches 150-160 ºF. Swirl milk vigorously. If any bubbles are visible pound the pitcher on the counter several times. Swirl after pounding for 20-30 seconds. This can be done effectively while the espresso is pouring. Begin pouring milk into the espresso.
In general, cold-brewed coffee is more caffeinated than hot-brewed coffee. With roughly a 1:8 coffee-to-water ratio, place your grounds in the bottom of the jar, and cover with cold water. Stir gently until well combined, then cover and leave to steep for 18-24 hours. Let sit for 12 hours at room temperature or 24 hours in the fridge. Cold-brewed coffee is 67 percent less acidic than hot-brewed. Without all that acid, the burnt flavor that plagues hot-brewed coffee is eliminated. Plus, the reduced acid makes it healthier for your stomach and your teeth.
Coffee grounds are widely believed to be an acidifying agent when added to garden soil, the pH of grounds usually tends to be closer to neutral.
During the cold-brew process, time replaces heat. The brewing is either done slowly by drip or filter, or French press. Cold water brewing extracts the delicious flavor compounds and caffeine from coffee beans, but leaves behind myriad bitter oils and biting fatty acids, including undesirable elements such as ketones, esters and amides.
Healthy adults can safely consume up to about 400 milligrams of caffeine a day, which is roughly the equivalent of four cups of coffee.
The brewing temperature of the water used is very important. It should be between 195 F (91 C) and 205 F (96 C).
In a drip system, the contact time should be approximately 5 minutes. If you are making your coffee using a French Press, the contact time should be 2-4 minutes. Espresso has an especially brief brew time — the coffee is in contact with the water for only 20-30 seconds. Cold brew, on the other hand, should steep overnight (about 12 hours).
To preserve your beans’ fresh roasted flavor as long as possible, store them in an opaque, air-tight container at room temperature. Coffee beans can be beautiful, but avoid clear canisters which will allow light to compromise the taste of your coffee. Keep your beans in a dark and cool location.

Caffeine is a central nervous system (CNS) stimulant of the methylxanthine class. It is the world's most widely consumed psychoactive drug. Unlike many other psychoactive substances, it is legal and unregulated in nearly all parts of the world.
Consumption of 1–1.5 grams per day is associated with a condition known as Caffeinism. Caffeinism usually combines caffeine dependency with a wide range of unpleasant symptoms including nervousness, irritability, restlessness, insomnia, headaches, and palpitations after caffeine use.
