I like a Grande, with two shots of espresso.
Any idea about how much caffeine is in this?

Enough to keep you up late enough to post this. :D

Seriously, as Starbies roasts dark, GENERALLY, the darker the roast, the less caffeine, as a bit leeches out in the roast. Or something.
THE espresso process produces less caffeine in your drink that if you had the same amount of drip brewed coffee, due to the longer immersion in the drip process. More time to extract the caffeine from the grinds.

Sbux claims an average of 75mg of caffeine per single shot. So figure in the ball park of 150mg of caffeine.
