    Depending on how strong you make it, probably anywhere between 100 and 200 mg per 8 oz brewed.

    I did however find an article in the WSJ stating that "Folgers was found to have 170 mg. of caffeine per 16 oz. cup" (McCarthy, Michael. The Caffeine Count in Your Morning Fix. Wall Street Journal. April 13, 2004.)

    O/T - When you have your catastrophic energy drops, when was the last cup of coffee leading up to it? Any relation?

    You're putting down 3-4 cups of coffee in 3 or 4 hours ?

    Folgers has the info posted on their site

    http://folgers.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/...p?p_faqid=1330
    Caffeine content in Folgers® Coffee?
    Question:
    Can you tell me how much caffeine is in my Folgers® Coffee?

    Answer:
    For Folgers Ground Coffee: Caffeine content can vary by blend (dark roasted coffees contain less caffeine than lighter roasted coffees), so here’s the scoop: Serving size equals 1 tablespoon ground coffee to 6 oz of water.
    Milligrams of Caffeine per Serving:
    Regular: 59 mg per tablespoon (one serving)
    Half-Caff: 30 mg per tablespoon (one serving)
    Decaffeinated: 1.5 mg per tablespoon (one serving)

    Folgers Coffee Singles: One serving equals one coffee single for each 6-ounce cup of water. The caffeine-per-cup may vary according to how long it is brewed:
    Milligrams of Caffeine per Serving:
    Regular: 116.7 mg/single
    Decaffeinated: 2.8 mg. per single

    Folgers Instant Crystals: One serving size equals one teaspoon instant coffee for each 6-ounce cup of water.
    Milligrams of Caffeine per Serving:
    Regular: 74 mg. per teaspoon (one serving)
    Decaffeinated: 1.9 mg per teaspoon (one serving)
