  8. How much caffeine is in Folgers Coffee?
    Folgers Regular
    Coffees
    Caffeine 60 to 80 mg Based on information from the USDA nutrient database, the average amount of caffeine in a 6-fl-oz cup of coffee, brewed from grounds with tap water, falls between 60 to 80 mg. In general, coffee products have a wide range of caffeine levels that vary with the type and amount of coffee used as well as the method of preparation.
    Folgers Instant
    Coffees
    Caffeine 74 mg This number is an average — caffeine content can vary with the blend and amount of coffee used. Instant coffee caffeine content can vary slightly depending on amount used. Instant coffee is made at a higher concentration than brewed coffee; therefore, more caffeine in the instant versus ground.
