Maxwell House is one of the most well known coffee brands in the United States and easily found on the shelves in almost any grocery or convenience store.

Max Boost 1.75x is Maxwell House's attempt to get into the high caffeine coffee game.

Maxwell House's Max Boost Coffee has and average 24.5 mg of caffeine per fluid ounce of brewed coffee or 294 mg in a standard 12oz coffee mug.

Is Maxwell House's Max Boost Caffeine Content Considered High?

While not nearly as high as brands like Death Wish, Black Insomnia or Devil Mountain, the 294 mg of caffeine per 12 oz cup is higher than the majority of grocery store coffee options.

Max Boost contains 10.5 mg of caffeine more than the original roast from Maxwell House which comes in at 14 mg of caffeine per ounce.

 Serving Size Caffeine (MG) Sugar (G)
8 oz Cup 196 0
12 oz Cup 294 0


Considered a medium roast, Max Boost gets it's higher caffeine content from a blend of the higher caffeine containing robusta beans and arabica.

Factors which 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.

Is Maxwell House's Caffeine Content Safe?

The FDA currently suggest that healthy adults keep their daily caffeine consumption to about 400mg. While one cup of the Max Boost should be fine, we do suggest caution if you plan on drinking multiple cups, especially in a short time frame. The average healthy adult should have no issue with 1-2 cups a day.



Caffeine has a half-life of 6 hours, meaning that half of the amount you consumed will be out of your body within 6 hours. The other half will take another 4-6 hours to leave, so that means you'll need to wait 12 hours for complete clearance from your system. But this is just an average; some people may clear it more quickly than others due to individual factors such as age and genetics.



Our staff uses several methods to find and compile caffeine content. We check the manufacturer or brands website, packaging, other published online resources including medical publications and if all else fails emailing the brand directly.
