Caffeine Calculator

How much caffeine should I have a day?

  • Adults: the maximum daily dose shouldn’t exceed 400 mg. It is equivalent to three large mugs of filter coffee – if you drink more than that, it can have a negative influence on your health.
  • Teenagers (aged 13-18): as the teenagers’ bodies are still developing, they should limit their caffeine intake to about 100 mg a day. It corresponds to one large mug of coffee or two shots of espresso.
  • Children (below 13): small children should avoid caffeine in general. It is not advisable to provide them with substantial amounts of coffee.
  • Pregnant women: the maximum recommended caffeine limit in case of pregnancy is 200 mg per day.
