- Serving size
Decaffeinated instant coffee contains small amounts of caffeine. Data from the USDA food database shows a rounded tsp (1.8 grams) of instant coffee powder has 2.2 mg of caffeine in it.
They list an 8 fl oz prepared decaf coffee as having 2.4 mg caffeine (odd, as this indicates slightly more than 1 teaspoon of dry powder has been added to the water).
It's important to understand that decaffeinated is NOT the same as caffeine-free. There will always be small amounts of caffeine in decaf beverages.
