Q:

Does French vanilla cappuccino have caffeine?

A:

French vanilla cappuccino contains caffeine. A cappuccino is made with espresso, which has 40 to 75 milligrams of caffeine in a single shot, depending on the concentration.

A French vanilla cappuccino is a standard cappuccino made with French vanilla syrup. It is possible to request a certain number of espresso shots. A small-sized cappuccino likely comes with one shot, a medium with two and a large with three. At Starbucks, a 12-ounce cappuccino has 75 milligrams of caffeine, or one espresso shot, compared to the 260 milligrams of caffeine in a 12-ounce drip coffee. This means that anyone who is used to drinking drip coffee may want to order an extra shot or two with his cappuccino.

  • Q:

    How does caffeine work?

    A:

    Caffeine functions by stimulating the central nervous system, which affects the heart and blood pressure, by blocking adenosine, a natural chemical found in the brain that regulates sleep. Adenosine connects to receptors in the brain and slows down the activity of the cells; drowsiness results. Caffeine works to keep an individual alert by taking over the receptors and increasing their speed, which has the opposite effect of adenosine.
