What is Death Wish Coffee?

Written by

Coffee. Some like it strong, while others like it sweet and some like it black and others like it with cream. There is no one way to enjoy coffee, but if you like it really strong and like your caffeine to knock on your door real hard, you should consider Death Wish Coffee. If you have not heard about it, here is a little introduction to possibly the world's strongest coffee.

Like most good things in this life, the idea of creating the strongest coffee in the world was brewed up in a coffee shop. Wanting to serve the needs of his clients of his small coffee shop in Saratoga Springs, New York, Mike Brown set out to create the strongest coffee after not being satisfied with what was available on the market at the time. This began the process of Mike sampling various beans, blends and brews and eventually settling for robusta coffee beans. Robusta coffee beans have a considerable amount more caffeine than arabica coffee beans which are more commonly used in commercial coffees.

The final result of Mike's efforts; Death Wish Coffee.

Advertised to contain 200% more caffeine than a standard cup of coffee, Death Wish Coffee is not for the fient of heart nor those who do not know there caffeine limits. Goes without saying that it should not be drunk by those sensitive to caffeine. The brand's logo features a rather fitting 'Skull 'n Bones' motif and both their website and packaging have warnings. The Caffiene Informer has labeled Death Wish Coffee as being 'dangerous' and their online Caffeine Calculator typically recommends no more than one cup per day. In other words, this stuff is serious.

On Sunday, February 7, 2016, Death Wish Coffee Coffee Company aired a commercial during Super Bowl 50. This coveted commercial spot was awarded to Death Wish after the company won the Small Business Big Game contest powered by Intuit Quickbooks which helps small businesses advertise among big corporations and established brands. Here is the ad for your viewing pleasure.
