This Coffee Is So Strong That Two Cups Could Kill You

This Coffee Is So Strong That Two Cups Could Kill You

This coffee is fittingly called the 'Asskicker' and has been created by Viscous Coffee to be available in Australia. The potent brew will keep you awake for 18 hours, which is only good if you're opposed to drugs but love a good rave.

But be warned, two cups of the good stuff is enough to potentially kill you, too. Check this out; one serving contains five grams of caffeine, which is more than 12 times the 400mg recommended daily limit.

Even facing your bosses on a Monday morning might not be worth that sort of fate. I'll say it again; this drink has the potential to put you six feet under. You are effectively having a little game of caffeine roulette. Keeps you on your toes.

Owner of Viscous Coffee, Steve Benington, told The Advertiser: "Some people love it and some are broken by it but it's all in the name of fun."

I'm not sure the risk of death constitutes as fun, but each to their own. The beverage is meant to be consumed over a period of three to four hours, instead of just being guzzled in order to give you a kick.

The drink was originally made for an emergency department nurse who needed it to keep her awake and alert for an unexpected overnight shift.

"She consumed her drink over two days and it kept her up for almost three days. I toned it down a little after that and the Asskicker was born," Benington said. "I offer custom caffeine levels tailored to personal requirements."

Of course there are health warnings that come with the coffee should anyone choose to take it on, with those suffering from heart or blood pressure issues being advised to not drink it.

I know it seems extremely dangerous and the possibility of death is a bit of an off-putter, but you can't help but be intrigued as to what it's like.
