Following is an article on Starbucks VS. its addicts, which focuses on
its main product that it sells. No, not coffee, but caffeine:


My, my, that *is* interesting. To quote for those who didn't want to wade:
"The Wall Street Journal earlier this year sent samples of coffee from Starbucks, 7-Eleven, and Dunkin' Donuts to Central Analytical Laboratories. The lab reported that a 16-ounce Starbucks house blend coffee contained 223 milligrams of caffeine, compared with 174 and 141 milligrams in comparable amounts of Dunkin' Donuts and 7-Eleven coffee, respectively. According to the Journal, the average Starbucks coffee drink contains 320 milligrams of caffeine."

The chart referenced in the article was gone, but this has a nice comparison showing extra strength Vivarine and NoDoz with 200, apparently 120 less than a Starbuck's coffee. w0w!

Here is one other that seem to back up the info...
