Is your normal cup of joe not doing it for you anymore? Shoppers in the United States can now get their hands on the world's most caffeinated coffee — but consume at your own risk.
reports that South African company Black Insomnia, which launched its coffee in 2016, is now selling its beans and grounds in the United States. According to the company's , lab tests show it contains a minimum of 702 milligrams of caffeine per 12 fluid ounces of java. (A typical cup of coffee only has 150 mg of caffeine, and a can of Coke has 34 mg of the stuff.) The website verified that this is indeed the strongest coffee on Earth, a full 6.3 percent stronger than the previous title-holder for strongest coffee, ominously called "Death Wish."
But before you get too excited, keep in mind that all this caffeine could be insanely dangerous. Black Insomnia's tagline is "sleeping is cheating," and there's a good reason why — just one cup of Black Insomnia coffee contains double the recommended safe daily dose of caffeine.
If you're willing to take the risk, a goes for $18.99, start at $15 a pack or you can get that start at $16 a month. And the company insists that their product is not just a caffeine delivery device, but a high-quality, "strictly pure" coffee with Robusto coffee beans that doesn't taste burnt. But keep your cups small, since a six-ounce cup is more than enough for an entire day's worth of pick-me-up.
