Caffeine values in coffee can vary enormously. The coffee blend, roast, brewing process, and many other factors can affect the caffeine content. The value above is from Starbucks.

A 2003 lab test of Starbucks Breakfast Blend (16 fl oz) tested six samples and found caffene levels ranged from 259.2mg to 564.4mg.

Incredibly these measurements were from the same outlet on six consecutive days.

The value of 564mg is extremely high, and it would be very unusual for a 16oz coffee to contain this much caffeine.

Those new to Starbucks should use caution when drinking their coffee as it's probably much higher in caffeine than the coffee they are used to.
