Traditionally that would also be made with coffee containing more robusta beans in Italy, which has higher caffeine than the Arabica coffee generally used in the US. A double shot of espresso made from arabica in most coffee shops would likely contain 60mg to 80mg of caffeine.

"Espresso typically has 63 mg of caffeine in 1 ounce (the amount in one shot), according to Department of Agriculture nutrition data. Regular coffee, by contrast, has 12 to 16 mg of caffeine in every ounce, on average. That means that ounce for ounce, espresso has more caffeine.6/01/2023"

An alternative opinion: "Malnutrition is a state of the body in which due to insufficient supply or incorrect absorption of essential nutrients, the body composition changes and the body's functions are impaired. Malnutrition is associated not only with reduced body mass index but also with obesity." https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/34749356/#:~:text=Malnutrition%20is%20a%20state%20of,index%20but%20also%20with%20obesity.
