Simple but informative chart on the caffeine mg's in some pretty typical coffee drinks we enjoy today

This afternoon I was researching a completely unrelated issue when I happened to start thinking about the amount of caffeine in different coffee drinks.  Some quick research turned up a great chart - but I decided to look at more sites and ended up on the famed Mayo Clinic website.  They had a short list - but it looked similar to what I was already finding.  I went to their reference listings and voila! They had gotten their information from my original source too!  Ha.

So without further adieu, here a simple but informative chart on the caffeine mg's in some pretty typical coffee drinks we enjoy today.
