Death Wish Coffee is an US-based company claiming to produce the first and last cup of coffee ever needed to kick start your work day.
Death Wish, a medium-dark roast coffee blend roasted in up-state NY, claims to be the “most highly caffeinated premium dark roast organic coffee in the world”.
The brand, featuring a menacing black skull and cross bones, says they use coffee beans containing close to 200% of the amount of caffeine found in a typical coffee shop coffee.
In comparison, a tall, 12oz cup of regular Starbucks coffee contains an average of 260 mg caffeine according to Energy Field, making in each cup of Death Wish approximately 520 mg.
The coffee that sells for $19.99 per 1lb bag is organically grown, fair traded and shade grown to save more land, according to the company.
It’s also said to have the full flavor of dark-roasted Arabica coffee beans without the loss of caffeine during its.
Explaining this as a rarity, Death Wish states that dark roasts typically contain less caffeine than lighter roasts due to the amount of time the beans are cooked.
“The longer and darker you roast the coffee bean the more caffeine gets pulled/cooked out,” they state on their website.
“I was zipping around like I was the Flash,” a satisfied user wrote of the product while giving it five out of five stars on Amazon.com.
“Not only was it one of the strongest coffees I’ve ever had but it is also one of the best tasting and smelling.”
“Much to my dismay, this is just regular coffee,” one of two negative reviews out of 15 shared in contrast.
So secure with their product, Death Wish Coffee offers a money-back guarantee with its sale according to its website.
“Buy a bag, if you hate it, send it back (within 60 days) and we will refund you your money plus shipping. No Risk. It’s the best part about selling a product we believe in,” they write.
