An Australian coffee company brews coffee that is basically jet fuel.
At 33 years old, I just started drinking coffee two weeks ago. Until recently, I was a strictly ‘green tea only’ kind of guy, but work circumstances have called for a much stronger alternative. I am not the kind of guy who pussyfoots around things, so I started by drinking espresso, and moved immediately into cold brews. I’m basically a crackhead now.
Coffee and caffeine obsession/addiction is a worldwide epidemic, and coffee places all around the globe are smart enough to take advantage.
Viscous Coffee, located in Adelaide, Australia sells a cup of coffee containing five grams of caffeine, which is more than 80 times the normal amount contained in a cup of coffee. To put that in perspective, 5 grams is half the dose of caffeine considered to be lethal.
This cup of coffee is called the ‘Asskicker’ and it comes with a health warning for people suffering from heart or blood pressure issues.

Steve Benington, the owner of Viscous Coffee says that one ‘Asskicker’ should be enough to keep you on your feet for 12-18 hours, so it’s probably a lifesaver for Australian nurses. He does caution that the drink should be consumed slowly over a time period of 4 hours.
The ‘Asskicker’ is made with four espresso shots, four 48-hour brewed cold drip ice cubes, a 10-day brewed cold drip, and topped with four more 48-hour brewed cold drip ice cubes. That probably either sounds like heaven or Hell to you, depending on how much you love caffeine.
If you are the kind of person that takes a caffeine challenge head-on though, I think Australia is calling your name.
