The strongest coffee in the world is now available in the US. However, a single cup can surpass the limit of daily caffeine and cause heart palpitations. Sean Kristafor, the founder of Black Insomnia, claimed that whoever wants to stand out, needs to use the best kind of coffee which is also the strongest and the cheapest. When it comes to a coffee competition, this one is known to be the strongest.
- Black Insomnia has won the title of “the strongest coffee in the world.”
- Sean Kristafor is the founder of this company.
- The coffee company sells six tons of coffee per month.
However, the producer does not exceed the guidelines. Kristafor is a coffee amateur and decided to create this company after he retired from a corporate job. Everything started when he found a coffee roaster online and then he created Black Insomnia in June 2016. The coffee was first sold to local cafes in Cape Town, South Africa.
The price per pound was established at $19. Up to this moment, the company has sold online three tons over the amount of the local coffee shops in August 2016. By October 2016, the company already had customers in 22 countries. Moreover, by March, the strongest coffee in the world was listed on Amazon in the United States.
Now, the successful and tasty coffee helped them sell about six tons per month. The strength of Black Insomnia emerges from the method used to roast the beans, the type of beans and robust taste. To earn the title of the “world’s strongest,” Kristafor had the beans chemically tested against competitors. About 58.5 mg per fl. Oz., Black Insomnia is twice as strong as the dark roast from Starbuck’s at around 21.25 mg per fl. Oz.
However, specialists say that it is crucial how the coffee is brewed. Kristafor claimed that this level of caffeine is within the limits of a regular shot, but, nevertheless, one cup, meaning 12 oz. adds more than 702 mg of caffeine. The International Food Information Council and the FDA recommend 400 mg of caffeine per day. Exceeding this limit could cause serious heart problems.
Mary Sweeney, a researcher analyzing the effects of caffeine at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, claims that when consuming Black Insomnia, you will get a double amount of caffeine from the same amount of coffee. That means that people consume more caffeine than they want to and the effects like restlessness, trouble when sleeping, nervousness and jitteriness don’t seize to appear.
