Black Insomnia, as the name suggests, is the strongest coffee in the world. It is already available for ordering in the United States, either under the form of beans or capsules. However, those who are willing to try it should know that it contains more caffeine that they have ever been drinking.
Black Insomnia earned the title of world’s strongest coffee
Only 12 ounces of Black Insomnia coffee contain 702 milligrams of caffeine. This represents only the added amount of caffeine, as some of the substance was already naturally present in the beans. If you still cannot imagine how much this is, take 12-ounces of dark roast coffee from Starbucks. These only contain 195 milligrams of caffeine.
There are several brands of coffee which claim that their product should earn the title of world’s strongest coffee. This is why Sean Kristafor, the owner of Black Insomnia, decided to have several coffee samples sent to a Swiss laboratory for testing. The results revealed that this brand was indeed the strongest, with a quantity of 17.5 grams of caffeine per kilogram.
Too much coffee can be dangerous
If you want to try this coffee, you have to be careful. Black Insomnia contains more caffeine than the daily dosage recommended by the FDA, which is 400 milligrams. Consumed in small quantities, it can have its benefits, but too much coffee might lead to adverse effects such as insomnia, a quicker heartbeat rate, or tremors in the muscles.
Also, a caffeine overdose might lead to death. This is why the company warned people that their beverage was not exactly suitable for a healthy lifestyle. The quantity of caffeine present in Black Insomnia almost qualifies it as a narcotic.
“It is not the roast, we haven’t burned our beans or made a really dark coffee. Nor have we made our coffee less soluble. No, how we measure the strength of our coffee is simply by the caffeine content — dangerously high levels of caffeine.”
Those in good health can handle drinking around four 6-ounce cups of coffee per day. Thus, they might be capable of drinking Black Insomnia, but they should not exceed one 6-ounce cup. One such cup would be as close as it gets to the recommended caffeine dosage per day.
However, sensitive people should avoid drinking this coffee. It might be better for those who suffer from arrhythmias, anxiety, migraines, or for pregnant women to stay away from Black Insomnia. The beverage might have unwanted effects on them, and they should not consume too much caffeine in general.
