Insomnia Coffee doesn’t care about your trés cool Hario kettle and Chemex setup. They think you look like an idiot slurping your coffee with a spoon and talking about the different notes while clutching your Mazama wares mug. They know their job; they are here to get you caffeinated and they’ll die trying. Or you will. Either one is fine.
It is not an understatement to say that these coffee beans have an ungodly amount of caffeine in them. We’re talking 702 mg per 12 ounce cup. To put that in context – if a 160 pound man were to drink fifteen cups of Black Insomia’s brew he would die. With a normal cup of coffee, it’d something like 67 to reach the point of poisoning. We’re not quite sure who started this caffeinated arms race, or why – but this may very well be the final volley. South African based brand Black Insomnia has dethroned Deathwish coffee with their puny 660mg per 12 ounces, and now seem to be dead set on conquering the American market. Curious? You can try for yourself. Pick these up in either Nespresso pods or whole bean for $40. [Purchase]
