Sean Kristafor founded the The Black Insomnia Coffee Company in Cape Town, South Africa, in 2016.
Black Insomnia Coffee made its debut in the states on Thursday.
At least that's the claim of the not-so-subtly-named Black Insomnia, which contends it has scientific proof its brew packs multiple times the punch of a normal cup of Joe. By October of the same year, the company had customers in 22 countries and in March, they got listed on Amazon in the USA.
But Black Insomnia, as it is called, is not for the faint of heart.

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.
The FDA recommends no more than 400 mg of caffeine per day, about what you'd find in four 6-ounce cups of coffee. This all depends on how you brew the coffee, of course.
Previously, "Death Wish Coffee" held the title as the most potent with around 660 mg in a 12 oz cup.
To those who drink more than this amount though, the effects may vary, experts say, depending on how a sensitive person is to caffeine. "This makes it easier to consume more caffeine than you intend to and effects can range from mild to severe, for example, jitteriness, nervousness, restlessness and trouble sleeping". Caffeine may have its benefits when taken in small doses but too much can also be risky as this can lead to a range of symptoms such as headaches, insomnia, muscle tremors, irritability and rapid heartbeat.
Kristafor defended his coffee, saying, "We are very aware of the limits and there are clear warnings on the labels".
