Whether you’re looking to control your daily caffeine consumption, or just curious about the amount of caffeine you drink with your daily Nespresso habit, we can help you out.
On average, each standard Nespresso pod has 60-75mg of caffeine, while the Nespresso Lungo pods have 80-140mg of caffeine.
Below we’ll give you a bit more detail about the caffeine content in a Nespresso pod, or capsule, so that you can check your favorite pod amount.
What Does Nespresso Intensity Mean For Caffeine Content?
You’ll notice that Nespresso pods have an intensity rating, to let you know how intense of a brew the little capsule makes.
But what does that really measure?
Nespresso pod intensity measures both caffeine and flavor of the resulting cuppa when you use the pod.
So, if you’re looking at buying a new type of Nespresso pod but can’t refer to our charts here to gauge caffeine content, then use the Intensity rating to roughly determine how much caffeine the pod will give you.
Nespresso OriginalLine Caffeine Content
If you’re drinking Nespresso pods from the original line, then you’ll discover that those pods tend to have less caffeine than others.
Each of these pods contains just 5 grams of ground coffee.
However, the Nespresso Lungo pods have a bit more coffee in them, with a total of 5.5 grams of ground coffee in the pod.
The average caffeine content of these pods fall in the following ranges:
- 60mg to 75mg of caffeine in the pods that contain 5 grams of coffee
- 80mg to 140mg of caffeine in the pods that contain 5.5 grams of coffee
