If you're a person who loves coffee enough that you'd travel all over the world to source the ideal cup - well, you're a person after our own hearts. Black Insomnia has 702 mg of caffeine per 12 ounce cup.

Beside those with arrhythmias, individuals who should be wary about drinking the Black Insomnia coffee are those suffering from migraines, anxiety disorders, pregnant woman and those who take drugs that can stimulate the heart.

The world's strongest coffee is now available in the United States. The Black Insomnia website explains that they are indeed "The World's Strongest Coffee" because of how they measure the strength of their less soluble coffee, not from burning their coffee beans to a blackened charred color, but by including a caffeine content that they write contains "dangerously high levels of caffeine". That's four times stronger than the average cup of coffee, which generally has about 150 milligrams of caffeine per 12-ounce cup, according to Food and Wine.

It has 58.5 milligrams of caffeine per ounce, nearly three times as much as Starbucks' dark roast. According to a press release, that makes the coffee 33 percent stronger than competitor - with a similarly ominous name - Deathwish Coffee. "A caffeine tablet contains as much caffeine as one to three 5-ounce cups of coffee", the FDA warned. But it all depends on how a person brews the beans, of course.
