Fixing Alt – How much caffeine?

It’s been a while since we’ve added to our “Fixing Alt” series which provides alternative text missing from infographics. So I thought a recently published infographic, How much caffeine is actually in your coffee, would be perfect. The image tells how many milligrams are in a cup of coffee from a variety of brands/stores. The alternative text provided on the blog is the same as the title of the blog; the actual content in the image is missing; it’s not accessible.

This is a fun topic but also important as we coffee drinkers, sighted or not, should be aware of the figures (assuming they’re accurate). So below is the information in the image and what should be content on the original page or referenced with the longdesc attribute.
