A New York man is marketing the world's strongest coffee - under the brand name of Death Wish Coffee. Double the strength of an espresso, Death Wish Coffee even comes with a disclaimer warning drinkers to expect

Meh. Is it really “the strongest” or just over-roasted like that StarBucks feces?

Which is probably a tad weaker than Community Dark Roast.

Oh I don't know if that's the strongest. I once attended a weekend long event at the Coast Guard Academy in New London. Waking up early, I wandered into the kitchen in search of a cup of coffee. The cooks directed me to a large tank and I poured myself a cup. Took one sip and lightning bolts flew out of my fingertips and eyeballs.

Those cookies laughed and laughed and then told me that they brew coffee 4X strong and then water it down in order to cut down on the brewing time necessary to serve thousands of cups at a time. The rest of that day was somewhat...electric.

turkish coffee is pretty strong.
just going by taste doesn’t mean it is highly caffeinated.

Espresso is weaker than drip. It’s an “urban myth” that espresso is stronger.

In espresso, there is less time where water is contacting the grounds, doing the caffeine extraction than drip. (that’s the espress/express part).

Beans are often washed prior roasting so that must be where this coffee maker preserves caffeine.

But I bet this still tastes like burnt rubber - ala Starbutts.

I may want to try some. I’ll go find out how much it costs before I get too excited. I may have to wait for a “special occasion.”

It sounds good, though....

Not impressive at all. It's like saying Joe has double the strength of five-year-old Timmy. Espresso is NOT highly caffeinated, but that's the common misconception.

Yes, it’s strong. I have a bag of it.
Doesn’t taste unusual (not great but not bad) but I can’t finish a cup, where it usually takes 3 cups before I start sensing jitters. And I’m a 2-cups-a-day coffee snob.
Calling it “Death Wish” is overstating the case, but no question it’s got unusually high caffeine levels.

On their website (Death Wish Coffee), the price is $19.99/lb ground or whole bean.

[About $1.20 per ounce]

For comparison, Eight O’Clock Coffee (100% Arabica/Columbian ground) on Amazon is $14.94 for the 33 oz (2-lb 1-oz) or about $7.24 per pound or 45-cents per ounce.

Welldoggies! I’ll have to make sure it’s a VERY special occasion before I buy that coffee. I balk and complain when paying $8.69 +/- .30 at Walmart for 12 oz. of Millstone Chocolate Velvet coffee... Which is excellent with chocolate raspberry creamer, if you can find it.

Americans drink coffee by the mug. In Argentina they drink these Dixie cups of coffee. So when I went to Argentina, my hosts gave me this Dixie cup of coffee. I laughed and told them I drink coffee 20 oz at a time.

They warned me about drinking too much coffee. I insisted they fill a big mug up for me because during my presentations I like to have a big cup of coffee.

My turn to present. After they dragged me out of the bathroom, my 3 hour presentation was done in 20 minutes. My hosts, in Spanish told the audience what happened and everyone had a laugh. We Q and A’d the rest of the time and it was actually fun rattling off answers. It was like a 2 1/2 hour lightning round.

Needless to say, at my presentation the next day, I had a 5 oz cup and a large water on the podium.

I sometimes add a little unsweetened cocoa or cinnamon to mine, but these days I can only drink decaf, and rarely.

While visiting my daughter in Istanbul, I was invited in for a Turkish coffee. Our hostess served it with small squares of chocolate. It was the only way I could get it down. UGH!

I had a fiancee’ (late) back in the day, who had a twin brother that lived in Venezuela. The fiancee’ always brought back packages of coffee. The packages were vacuumed-packed, (an unheard-of process, then) and a little hot water run over the coffee with a filter holding it was enough for a cup of coffee.

But you had better be within a few steps of the bathroom when that stuff hit your stomach!

Believe me, I know whereof you speak! ;o]

I prefer decaf, but actually, tea and coffee have less caffeine than a chocolate bar does. I think the “power of suggestion” is at work with “tea and coffee,” where no one thinks about the caffeine in cocoa. I just drink what I like.

Too bad we have not picked up on the Australian “long black”, a double-shot of espresso hot water. The long black is similar to an Americano, which is made by adding hot water to the espresso shot. However a long black retains the crema and is more strongly flavored.

Even decaf is difficult for me these days. I miss strong coffee. Oddly, when I do eat chocolate, it doesn’t seem to bother me, but the few times a year that I have chocolate are Valentine’s Day and the Christmas season. I remember rising early on Saturday mornings and having a couple of bracing cups of coffee before going out to spend the day gardening during the spring, summer and autumn. Those were the days.

Chicory. It’s not for me. I tried it once and didn’t care for it. I guess it’s a regional thing.

I can relate. Back in the ‘80’s when I was a Systems Engineer for a computer manufacturer, I had a site visit in North Miami Beach. Got pulled over going to the site. Long story short, I agreed to fly down from Jersey to take a driving test. I flew in one morning and walked up to the Cuban stand next to DMV. I asked for the strongest coffee - and they gave me a little Cafecito (Cafe Cubano). I laughed “Give me a ‘regular’ American-sized cup’. Well, two hours later I was shaking with the jitters. That’s when I learned how strong Cuban coffee is.

Espresso is weaker than drip. It’s an “urban myth” that espresso is stronger.

Not according to my research: According to the Mayo Clinic, an 8 oz expresso has between 320 mg and 600 mg of caffeine vs. 95 mg to 200 mg of caffeine for 80z brewed coffee. (http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/caffeine/AN01211)

According to Wiki, one liter of expresso has between 1,691–2,254 mg of caffeine vs. 555–845 mg of caffeine for a liter of drip coffee. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caffeine)

It's not even close -- Espresso has more caffeine per volume than drip coffee by a long shot.

Where do people get this crap from? See my post no. 46 for the caffeine content of drip brewed coffee and espresso. The same sources that I cite show a regular Hersey's Milk Chocolate Bar ( 1.5 oz) as having only 10 mg of caffeine and a Hersey's Dark Chocolate Bar (1.5 oz) as having 31 mg of caffeine, which equates to 53 mg and 165 mg of caffeine, respectively, for an 8 oz serving. This is not even close to the caffiene content of coffee for an equivilent serving size.

Well. Call me chastised. Mea culpa.

Chocolate has caffeine, as does coffee, tea, cola and other foods.

I feel slapped upside the head, so I am leaving now. Going to bed and read about various benign foods.

And if I feel lucky, I will look for caffeine contents in other foods tomorrow. You have bested me (for the moment) and I don’t take it lightly.

Ta.
