You guys all know that I’m a huge coffee lover/drinker. I used to work at Starbucks years ago and at one time wanted to own my own coffee shop. I love trying all kinds of coffee…especially if it’s organic coffee…see my blog post on why it’s important to drink organic coffee.
I recently became an affiliate for Death Wish Coffee (links in this blog post will be affiliate links) because their coffee is organic, bold and delicious! It’s also affordable! Sometimes I find really delicious organic coffee but it’s ridiculously expensive. Not, Death Wish Coffee…they even sell it in grocery stores.
Here’s a little background on Death Wish Coffee:
- Started in 2012
- Was on Good Morning America in 2013
- Smallest company to run a commercial ad during Super Bowl 50 in 2016
- Helped NASA Food Labs create a freeze-dried blend to fuel astronauts on the space station in 2018
- Moved main headquarters to a historic building in Saratoga Springs, NY in 2020
- Still creating delicious coffee for the world to enjoy in 2023
Now, you may be wondering why it’s considered “The Worlds Strongest Coffee”? Well, that’s because Mike (the owner) had customers coming into his coffee shop asking for his strongest cup of coffee. So he researched, experimented, and came up with his own blend of coffee… Death Wish Coffee.
This blend uses Arabica and Robusta beans. Robusta beans contain more caffeine which is why this coffee has an extra kick of caffeine. In an interview Mike did this is how he explains it:
We use both Robusta beans and Arabica beans. Robusta beans have nearly double the caffeine of Arabica. Robusta is looked down upon in the coffee world, though it’s used in a lot of espresso blends. Old school Italian roasters like it.https://www.forbes.com/sites/forbestreptalks/2016/02/09/meet-the-entrepreneur-behind-the-super-bowl-coffee-ad/?sh=371add8d4dbb
Death Wish Coffee sources their beans from India and Peru, which give them the best results for their coffee 99% of the time. Their beans are organic and fair trade too, which should make you feel even better about drinking it.
