Does Raktajino contain caffeine or some other stimulant? How potent is it?



In the DS9 episode "...Nor the Battle to the Strong", Quark creates a decaffeinated version;

ODO: (re: the drink) What is it?

QUARK: (pleased with himself) The chief asked me to come up with a decaffeinated raktajino for Kira. I'm thinking of marketing it.

All watch as Kira takes a sip from the mug...

WORF: Well...?

KIRA: (grimacing) Ugh... it's awful.

The implication (based on observation) is that it contains a lot of caffeine.

    Of course it's awful! It's DECAF! – Nate Watson Jun 19 '15 at 16:22
  • @natewatson - I was intrigued to find out the other day that decaf coffee can still contains as much caffeine as a can of coke – Valorum Jun 19 '15 at 16:29
  • Decaf is horrible, because it's false product labeling most of the time. It's also a horrible concept, but that's another matter. – Nate Watson Jun 19 '15 at 16:35
