Black Insominia Coffee Filter Ground

If you think your morning McCafe  by McDonalds or Starbucks is strong, wait till you try a sip of a new (previously banned) coffee now being sold in the United States for the 1st time.

Black Insomnia Coffee, which made its debut in South Africa in 2016, packs a ferocious kick.  According to and creator Sean Kristafor, this coffee includes 702 milligrams of caffeine into just 12 ounces. Compare that to a Tall Starbucks Pike Place, which has about 230 milligrams.

According to the coffee company, the makers sent bags of its coffee to a Swiss-based laboratory to confirm its claims as the world’s strongest brew. Samples were then tested via liquid chromatography (the separation of a mixture by passing it in a solution) and Black Insomnia was the strongest of those reviewed with 17.5 grams of caffeine per kilogram of coffee.

By comparison, “Death Wish” coffee was evaluated as having 13.2 grams per kilogram, while WodFee (marketed as the “world’s strongest coffee blend with added caffeine”) had 13.8 grams. A dark roast from Starbucks has around 5 grams of caffeine per kilogram, approximately.

According to Grub Street, the makers of the new “most caffeinated” coffee know that they have their work cut out for them marketing-wise. Black Insomnia allegedly discovered “nine different brands on Amazon” alone that claim some version of the title the Black Insomnia makers have allegedly proven to be scientifically theirs for the taking.
