The Strongest Coffee in the World Is Now Available in America

Food and Wine reports Black Insomnia Coffee is now available for purchase in the United States, offering Americans the opportunity to enjoy the world's most caffeinated coffee. Brewed in Cape Town, South Africa the coffee brand known as Black Insomnia had not been available to US consumers until this week. "The World's Strongest Coffee" packs a whopping 702 mg of caffeine in about 12 fluid ounces of coffee, which is about the size of a soda can. That means one 6-ounce cup of Black Insomnia puts you close to your daily limit, and the typical 12-ounce cup throws you overboard.

Could you (or someone you know) handle Black Insomnia Coffee?

The company was launched in Cape Town, South Africa, in 2016 by Sean Kristafor, who had a vision of "rebooting" the coffee industry.

But Black Insomnia, as it is called, is not for the faint of heart. "The most serious effect would be cardiac arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat)", she said.

Black Insomnia, which sells for $19 per pound, began selling three tons of coffee more than other local shops in the area with just their online business.

Johns Hopkins School of Medicine researcher Mary Sweeney said, speaking of Black Insomnia's caffeine content, "This makes it easier to consume more caffeine than you intend to and effects can range from mild to severe, for example, jitteriness, nervousness, restlessness, and trouble sleeping".

Although Black Insomnia holds the title for now, the company says that nine different brands on Amazon have the same claim, Grub Street reported.

Both coffees are available for sale on Amazon, which could not be reached for comment.
