is it true that cocoa has more caffeine in it then coffee?

someone recently swore to me, hand on heart that cocoa has more caffeine in it then coffee. Personally i think i can tell the difference and that coffee is definitely the stronger of the 2. plus my little sisters drink cocoa regularily and i’m wondering how good it is for them if it is true. please help me!


  • Is not true at all, Tea has caffeine, Coca is pure Juice…it depends if maybe they add it, but naturally…not at all…

    coffee has more then cocoa.
    I drink coffee alot but I also try to drink a lot of water to counteract the effects of the caffeine in the coffee.
    cocoa has some caffeine in it but not as much as coffee or espresso. they have lots in them.
