What is the caffeine content of Folgers coffee?

An American Classic for decades Folgers does not specifically list their caffeine on the label or website. However third-party test have given an estimated caffeine content we feel is accurate when brewed at home. 

Folgers Classic Roast Coffee has an average of 15 mg of caffeine per fluid ounce of brewed coffee or 160 mg in a standard 12oz coffee mug.

Is Folgers Coffee Caffeine Content Considered High?

Folgers Classic Roast coffee has a caffeine content slightly higher compared to other standard grocery store brands but at 160 mg per 12 ounce it is not considered a highly caffeinated coffee option like Maxwell House’s Max Boost.

 Serving Size Caffeine (MG) Sugar (G)
8 oz Cup 120 0
12 oz Cup 168 0


Folgers has launched other varieties of coffee in recent years but most will contain similar average caffeine amounts as their classic roast.

Factors that can change caffeine content include:

  • Amount of water used
  • Amount of coffee grounds used
  • Brewing Method: Pour Over, Drip, AeroPress
  • The volume of coffee brewed.
