"Prior to that, the legal limit for caffeine was 12 microgram/ml in urine, said to be equivalent to around eight cups of espresso".
Really, so espresso is all bark and not much bite? I'd always assumed that it was super-concentrated rocket fuel!Master50 said:8 cups of drip coffee maybe but 8 cups of espresso has less than 1/2 of the caffein of regular drip. The dark roast gets more flavour but the process destroys a lot of the caffein. The stronger flavour is often associated with caffein content but the content is actually less.

Michielveedeebee said:damn stupid, that would mean that you won't even be able to drink a cup of coffee. It's not like caffeine enhances performance. It will give you this little boost you also get with powergels... because of one guy taking an overdose of sleepingpills after taking a caffeinetablet(a Tablet by all means :s ). Stupid idea imho
