Intuitively one might think that green teas and light roast coffees would
have more caffeine due to less destructive processing. However, the caffeine
molecule is very stable. I have not seen any actual data to support the
hypothesis that roasting in the ranges we generally use (City to Vienna),
effects caffeine levels.
