Here’s something super bitter for you coffee fiends: Death Wish Coffee. It’s the world’s strongest coffee, because it has 200 per cent more caffeine than your normal cup of joe. That’s, um, a lot of caffeine in one drink. But, then again, for those who pour multiple brews down your throat every morning, it shouldn’t be a problem.
How does it have twice the caffeine of normal coffee? Death Wish Coffee says that it’s because it has found the perfect kickass, head-snapping combination of coffee beans from Indonesia, Ethiopia and South America. The beans Death Wish uses are Robusta beans, which have a harsher taste than the typical Arabica bean. Death Wish promises that its beans don’t suffer from that same harsh taste because of the way it grows the beans:
Typically dark roast coffee has less caffeine in comparison to lighter roast coffees due to the caffeine being stricken from the bean during the roasting process. Here at Death Wish Coffee we have found a coffee bean with close to 200% the amount of caffeine as your typical coffee shop coffee; we roast it to a medium-dark for a strong and robust flavour and then we grind it to the proper level for extreme potency.
A 350mL coffee you get from Starbucks has around 260mg of caffeine, while a 350mL Death Wish Coffee has 520mg (comparatively, a 700mL Monster Energy drink has 480mg). They’re not playing around here. You can buy a bag of ground beans on Amazon for $US20, if you dare. [Death Wish Coffee via Yahoo]
