Caffeine is a chemical substance that is a component in many beverages that are a part of so many people’s daily routines. Its chemical formula is C8 H10N4 O2 and it can be naturally sourced through a variety of plants. Because an excessive consumption of caffeine (greater than 400 mg a day) can lead to serious health complications, it is important to be aware of how much caffeine is in different caffeinated beverages. In this experiment, the concentration of the caffeine contained in Cold Brew, Espresso, Decaffeinated coffee and Tea was analyzed and determined.
