Looking for an afternoon pick-me-up? Good news, you can now consume what has been verified by scientists to be the world’s strongest cup of coffee.
Hailing from South Africa, “Black Insomnia Coffee,” can now be purchased on Amazon. As they terrifyingly explain in a press release, “According to Mayo Clinic, ‘Up to 400 mg [equivalent to 6 mg/kg body weight in a 65-kg person] of caffeine a day, appears to be safe for most healthy adults. That’s roughly the amount of caffeine in four [6 oz] cups of brewed coffee”. Thus, having just one 6 oz cup of Black Insomnia almost fulfills the recommended maximum intake.”
That’s right, just one cup, and you are medically at the human body’s limit for a cup of coffee.
