March 31 (UPI) -- A South African company announced the "world's strongest coffee," containing a staggering caffeine content, is now available in the United States.
Black Insomnia Coffee, first available in South Africa last year, announced a deal with Amazon to bring its ultra-caffeinated beans to the U.S. market.
The company said it submitted its beans to scientific tests to ensure the brew contains 702 milligrams of caffeine per 12-ounce cup, several times the 150 milligrams in the average cup of coffee and beating the previous claimants to the "world's strongest coffee" throne, Death Wish coffee with 660 milligrams of caffeine per 12-ounce cup.
The company admitted there are beverages with higher caffeine content, but those competitors contain additives and aren't "pure coffee."
"So here's the thing, don't come crying to us if you can't handle the kick," the company said. "Our beans may taste great, they may be smooth, 'with the flavors of nuts and caramel,' but if you can't handle they kick, it may just not be for you. But for those who can, we are happy to be here for you."
