This $20 Coffee Claims It's the Strongest in the World — and You Can Get It on Amazon
Instead of shelling out extra dollars to load up your coffee with several espresso shots, this seriously delicious brew — which claims to be the “strongest coffee in the world” — may be just that extra kick of caffeine you’ve been looking for.
Grab yourself a $20 bag of Black Insomnia Coffee and you can brew yourself a cup that packs “bold,” “smooth,” and “chocolate-y” flavor, according to Amazon shoppers, along with an impressive amount of caffeine. No fancy barista training required.
While your typical eight-ounce cup of java contains anywhere from 95 to 165 milligrams of caffeine, Black Insomnia Coffee’s brew contains an impressive 736 milligrams of caffeine per cup with rich flavor. “Our coffee is around five to six times stronger than the ‘usual coffee,’” Alexander Sacken, the company’s director, tells PEOPLE.
The brand’s coffee is also stronger than a large dark roast from Starbucks, which contains around 340 milligrams of caffeine, as well as a can of Red Bull, which contains around 80 milligrams.
Reviewers say it’s tasty, too. “Usually the ‘strongest coffee in the world’ gimmick leads to burnt, low-quality coffee, but I was pleasantly surprised by how good this coffee is,” one reviewer wrote. Robust beans give the drink its flavor and caffeine sans “a burnt and high acidic flavor,” according to the company.

“This is hands down the best flavored coffee I have ever tasted,” another chimed in. “The caffeine buzz is also incredibly clear (best way I can explain it) — not jittery, just a burst of energy.”
And while its rich flavor may make you want to throw back a big mug or two, you should probably keep your caffeine habits in mind before you sip away. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) says most adults can safely consume around 400 milligrams a day, though some people may be able to tolerate more depending on their metabolism and sensitivity to caffeine.
“I don’t have it every day, but it does the trick in a tricky ,” one Amazon shopper commented. Monday mornings don’t sound so bad now, do they?
