A new coffee claims it's the most potent in the world.
Sean Kristafor founded the The Black Insomnia Coffee Company in Cape Town, South Africa, in 2016. They recommend most healthy adults can't consume more than 400 mg a day. But good news for people who associate the strongest coffee with the best coffee: The most potent stuff in the whole world no longer requires a trip overseas. "A caffeine tablet contains as much caffeine as one to three 5-ounce cups of coffee".
Black Insomnia writes that its coffee is "roasted and brewed by Dr G, one of the world's foremost baristas", who is the "mastermind behind getting your coffee as good as a "hug from your grandma" while still being able to deliver that Chuck Norris roundhouse kick of caffeine goodness".
Is this the world's strongest coffee?
Saints have no interest in Johnny Manziel
The New England Patriots officially will not be receiving the New Orleans Saints' 11th overall pick in a deal for Malcolm Butler. He can also sign an offer sheet with another team, which also would have to compensate the Patriots with a first-round choice.
Black Insomnia sought to shake up the coffee industry by offering coffee lovers a coffee that was way stronger and darker than they were used to drinking. "The most serious effect would be cardiac arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat)", she said. The same size for Death Wish Coffee contains 330 mg. This week, the company made its global debut by expanding distribution of its heavily caffeinated product through Amazon.
It requires products to follow US Food and Drug Administration regulations, which include accreditation of the roasting facility, packaging and labeling.
Death Wish Coffee contains 13.2 grams of caffeine per kilogram, but based on tests conducted by a Swiss laboratory, the Black Insomnia has 17.5 grams of caffeine per kilogram, Today noted.
Kristafor defended his coffee, saying, "We are very aware of the limits and there are clear warnings on the labels".
