How Much Caffeine is in Black Coffee

Everything in moderation – especially black coffee. Drink too much, and you face dangerous health risks from excessive caffeine. An average 8-ounce cup of joe contains about 95mg of caffeine. Most recommend less than four cups per day or about 400mg. Be sure to stop drinking coffee around dinnertime or 5 pm. Otherwise, you might not be able to sleep.
