The longer an espresso shot is pulled, the more caffeine it has. This is because you’re more fully extracting the coffee grounds. A lungo will have more caffeine than regular espresso, but only by a little bit.
Is lungo stronger?
Because you use more water to pull a lungo, the taste is much more subdued than that of an espresso or ristretto (a shot pulled with half the water). However, while the drink is less strong (due to the water) it is more bitter. However, it is important to note that a lungo is not simply a half strength shot.
