An organic coffee company from upstate New York, Death Wish calls itself the "'most highly caffeinated premium dark roast organic coffee in the world," which is a bold title. The packaging of the coffee features a hardcore black skull and cross bone graphic.

According to Death Wish, the coffee beans it uses contain close to 200 percent more caffeine than a typical cup of coffee from a local coffee shop. Based on this metric, then a cup of Death Wish will contain approximately 780 mg of caffeine (three times as much) when the average dose of caffeine from a regular 12 oz. cup of coffee from Starbucks averages to about 260 mg. What makes this medium-dark roast coffee blend pack so much punch?

The Death Wish Coffee Company couldn't go too in depth with its roasting process without revealing too much of its trade secrets. Death Wish Coffee Company claims that its coffee beans are organically-grown and fair-traded. The coffee is roasted to a medium dark to give Death Wish its strong and robust taste.

Death Wish also explained that while Arabica coffee is smoother and more flavorful than the Robusta beans, Arabica suffers a much lower caffeine content. What's more, contrary to a common misconception, dark roast coffee is actually weaker than a light roast as more caffeine is pulled out for the longer of period of time the bean is roasted.

Acknowledging the need for a coffee that is strong in flavor and high in caffeine, Death Wish found a coffee bean that possessed the full flavor of dark-roasted Arabica as well as the highest levels of caffeine in existence.

Confident of their product, Death Wish Coffee promises to buy the coffee back from its customers should they find a stronger, more flavorful, organic dark roast coffee elsewhere. Customers are given a 60-day 110 percent money back guarantee.

Want a bag? Death Wish Coffee sells for $19.99 per one-pound bag, ground or whole bean, and $80 for a 5-pound bag, ground or whole bean. Want the world's strongest coffee in your cupboard? Be sure to visit the Death Wish Coffee store here.
