What coffee roast has the most caffeine? I’m surprised.

Just learned from a friendly Starbucks barista that medium roast has more caffeine than bold roast (which has more than espresso).  That’s exactly opposite of what I’ve thought, and I bet you have too.  The longer the beans roast the more caffeine is leached out of them. 

This all came out when I complained that I needed some bold coffee because I stayed up to watch Braves playoff baseball; they played the late game in San Francisco and lost, 1-0.
