If you suspect that your local barrista is not giving you the decaf you ordered, test strips are now available.
Whether accidentally or on purpose, for some, this unexpected addition of caffeine could be a serious health threat–at least serious enough to warrant caution. Those who have high blood pressure or a heart condition should probably be avoiding caffeine. However, as many people tend to do, the doctor’s advice goes out the window when in the real world of cafes, restaurants, and soda pop machines. For people who simply must monitor their caffeine intake, there is help in the form of D+caf Caffeine Test Strips.
Reading this health notice about the dangers of caffeine should make me feel guilty about all those times a jillion years ago when I was waitering and would deliberately give asshole customers the opposite coffee of whatever they ordered. It should, but it doesn’t.
