The World’s Strongest Coffee is Some Serious Stuff

Holy never gonna sleep again, this brand of coffee is not messing around. With a tag line that reads “now is not the time to sleep,” the not-at-all-subtly-named Black Insomnia serves up 702 milligrams of caffeine per 12 ounce cup. That’s. A lot.

Just for context, one shot of espresso has about 90 milligrams of caffeine and 12 ounces of regular black coffee has about 135 milligrams. Again, Black Insomnia has 702 milligrams. That gives me the jitters just thinking about it, and I’m not sure about you, but if I had a cup, I’d pretty much have to plan on being awake for the rest of my life.
