Tim Hortons Coffee: Caffeine Content
Tim Hortons have started to list caffeine amounts along with their regular nutrition information. This table shows the Canadian amounts as well as the USA amounts.
The info is listed their website, which features both a nutritional information calculator, nutritional report, and caffeine report.
The caffeine database here at Energy Fiend contains a few of the drinks – but this table is far more comprehensive.
|Beverage||Small (10 oz)||Medium (14 oz)||Large (20 oz)||X Large (24 oz)|
|French Vanilla / English Toffee Cappucino||60mg||80mg||110mg||190mg|
|Iced Cappucino & Iced Cappucino Supreme (All varieties)||100mg||140mg||170mg||n/a|
|Iced Coffee (Canada Only)||40mg||90mg||115mg||n/a|
|Bagged Tea – Chai||20mg||30mg||40mg||50mg|
|Bagged Tea – Green||25mg||35mg||50mg||60mg|
|Bagged Tea – Orange Pekoe, English Breakfast, or Earl Grey||50mg||70mg||100mg||170mg|
|Decaffeinated Orange Pekoe||6mg||9mg||12mg||20mg|
|Caffeine-Free Teas – Honey Lemon, Apple Cinammon, Chamomile, Pepperment||0||0||0||0|
In Canada only there is now an “extra small” size, which previously was their “small”. An “extra small” coffee would contain 80mg of caffeine with a decaf containing 5mg. Tim Hortons made the change so the Canadian stores and USA stores would have more uniform cup sizes.
How accurate is this?
Tim Hortons clearly states that “this information is accurate to the best of our knowledge, no warranty is expressed or implied regarding its accuracy.”
This is completely true; caffeine amounts in coffee-based drinks can vary wildly. I found a couple of discrepancies on different parts of their site.
Additionally, the caffeine content for tea depends on how long it is steeped.
What’s up with all the caffeine in the Decaf?
Decaffeinated isn’t the same thing as caffeine-free.
