Coffee lovers everywhere need to get ready for the ultimate caffeine fix. A new coffee company called Black Insomnia Coffee claims to be the “world’s strongest coffee.” A cup of Black Insomnia Coffee is basically the equivalent of six cups of regular coffee. Even though many coffee companies in the past have made similar claims, Black Insomnia Coffee actually has real science to back themselves up. Black Insomnia Coffee did a quick search of which competing coffee companies also claimed to offer the “world’s strongest coffee” so they could prove their that they were “the strongest” once and for all. Black Insomnia Coffee went to great lengths to prove their strength. They sent bags of their coffee with their rival coffee brands to be tested by a lab and according to TODAY, Black Insomnia Coffee dominated.
The coffee creator, Sean Kristafor said that Black Insomnia Coffee” packs 702 milligrams of caffeine into just 12 ounces — without adding caffeine to what’s naturally in the beans.” If you thought Starbucks coffee was strong, you were seriously mistaken. To compare, a 12-ounce dark roast from Starbucks has “195 milligrams of caffeine The South Africa-based company sells their beans on Amazon, so caffeine consumers everywhere can get their fix from the comfort of their homes.
Recently in a press release, Kristafor said,”It is time to offer something a little different – something stronger and darker, with an edge.” Surprisingly, according to the company, they chose to weaken the blend so people would not completely lose control. It is a matter of “public health and safety,” as reported by TODAY. Still, Black Insomnia Coffee is known to “border on narcotic” and they are not worried that any other coffee will match them.
So, what happens if you consume too much Black Insomnia Coffee? Dr. Sharonne N. Hayes, M.D., a cardiologist at Mayo Clinic and professor of cardiovascular diseases, told TODAY “It depends on how sensitive you are to caffeine. It may not cause a serious medical issue, but it may be uncomfortable. For example, people with arrhythmias are triggered by caffeine and may experience palpitations.” Enjoy your caffeine and drink with caution!
