There's a Lorelai Gilmore in all of us.
We love our bread, we love our butter, but most of all, we love our coffee! And if we had it our way, we'll live our entire lives being a caffeine funnel. But what if I told you that if there is a way to make that dream happen, the only type of coffee you can consume is the world's strongest one?!
Meet Black Insomnia, dubbed as the world's strongest coffee. The blend is so strong because it is a potent mixture of beans from the coffee gods; Guatemala, Rwanda, Ecuador, AND Brazil! It is the type of coffee not made for the weak. Black Insomnia originated from South Africa, and word on the street's it already hit U.S. shores.
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, an 8-ounce cup of hot, brewed coffee has 95 milligrams of caffeine. And as per Starbucks' website, a cup of their Pike Place Roast has 155 milligrams of caffeine per 8-pounce serving. Folks at the Mayo Clinic, aka the trusty science people, an adult human can safely consume up to 400 milligrams of caffeine per day, which, when calculated, is around four 8-ounce servings. You might think these are reasonable amounts, but wait until you find out just how much caffeine Black Insomnia has.
Before you go gulping cup after cup of this coffee, you should know that a cup of Black Insomnia has almost twice the amount of caffeine we can consume per day! A single 12 oz cup alone contains 702 milligrams of caffeine. It's insane!
This isn't to say that consuming Black Insomnia is entirely bad. Because no matter how outrageous it sounds, you have to admit that there are days where you just NEED that extra dose of caffeine in your system.
The company recommends that you only drink two cups a day at most or risk having unwanted side effects. You don't want to experience palpitations, restlessness and literal insomnia, do you?!
