this isn't a 'which one is better' question, rather, what equals what? i use three to four scoops of coffee for roughly 14oz of coffee from a French press. i just tried a Moka and also used three scoops (but finer grind). as far as caffein content, would these be equivalent? i know a lot of lot of variables go into the answer but i'm a newb and i don't want to drink four moka pots unknowingly and go bonkers. thanks.

French press vs. Moka Pot, which is better?   I'd say french press in this case.

French press vs. Brikka?  Brikka hands down.  

Of course comparing the 3 different processes is like comparing apples to oranges to grapes.  But final product quality I still have to say Brikka is the best.

That's a hard estimation .. there are caffiene test strips out there now I believe and that may be the only way to know besides the buzz in your head.

All quantities of coffee being equal my "guess" the Mocha pot will extract more caffiene and a finer grind will give more caffiene.

Either way I don't think you will go bonkers LOL

Cheers ...

"Bonkers" -- You could do worse.

Caffeine pretty much has diminishing returns effects on metabolism. And your bod gets accustomed to the effects fairly quickly.

Good coffee is not rocket science. It's WAY more complicated than that!
