Death Wish Coffee Will Bring You Alive!
If you thought decaffeinated coffee is bad for you, think again. There is a new variety of coffee in the market, whose name says it all – Death Wish Coffee. While the name may not be all that appealing, the coffee is said to be made of a bean which has “close to 200% the amount of caffeine as your typical coffee shop coffee.” The coffee package is printed with an image of a skull and crossbones and the coffee comes with a warning. Isn’t that frightening already? No? Well, here is more on this dangerous drink.
No Regular Coffee
If you read the disclaimer that accompanies this coffee, you would think twice before having a cup. The company has kept secret all the details about the bean, which is supposed to have the 200% more kick than the ordinary coffee bean. The company website explains that the when you roast a bean dark, you take out that much caffeine out of it, which is why coffee beans roasted lightly tend to have more caffeine. It is this philosophy that inspired the owners of Death Wish Coffee to go on a search for the best of the both worlds, in other words, a coffee, which could be roasted dark without compromising on the caffeine content.
The company disclaimer reads, “This is not your regular morning coffee. This is not your store-bought coffee. You will not find this coffee at your local diner or at your sissy Starbucks. Death Wish Coffee is the most highly caffeinated premium dark roast organic coffee in the world. This is Extreme Coffee, not for the weak. Consider yourself warned.” The company roasts the coffee to a medium-dark, thus, obtaining a robust flavor. The coffee is roasted to order and the supervisors at the company keep a check on the before and after of the process. In the words of the company, “We are dedicated to quality and guarantee that you will not find a stronger, more flavorful, organic coffee on the market anywhere or we will buy the coffee back from you. This is the best coffee for the strong.”
Should You Drink this Coffee?
The first thing that comes to mind when you read 200% more caffeine is, “uh, uh, should I drink it?” Well, if you listen to what the experts are saying, you would be tempted to have a sip at least. One such expert, who has tasted the coffee, wrote, “The fullness of the liquid was the first thing to hit my tongue. It was deep, rich and seemed to have layers of intensity. Since it was on ice, a cold rush of complex notes (almost nutty tasting) smoothly slid down my throat, waking me up instantly.” Well, isn’t that what a coffee is supposed to do? The price of the coffee may prove to be a hindrance since it comes at $19.99 per pound while other coffee blends come at much less cost. But then, the company is ready to sell its coffee only to the real connoisseurs. Considering the fact that market shelves already have artisanal coffee roasts like Intelligentsia’s Java Nica roast, selling at $20 per 12oz, the deal with the Death Wish doesn’t seem too high-end.
Already being given names like a “breakthrough” in the coffee world and the “World’s Strongest Coffee,” it seems the Death Wish Coffee will not have any problem reaching people’s coffee maker in due time. Next time you want to celebrate the National Coffee Day, do it with a cuppa Death Wish.
