New Roastery Claims to Offer World’s Most Caffeinated Coffee

death with coffee offers most caffeinatedWith a skull-and-crossbones logo, a new coffee roastery called Death Wish Coffee is claiming to offer the world’s most caffeinated dark roast coffee.

The company says it has discovered a bean that when roasted contains upwards of 200 percent more caffeine than typical roasted arabica coffees. The upstate New York-based roaster is currently selling online only and offering a 60-day, 110 percent money back guarantee.

Here’s company’s pitch to consumers:

Death Wish Coffee is a breakthrough in the coffee world.  Typically dark roast coffee has less caffeine in comparison to lighter roast coffees due to the caffeine being stricken from the bean during the roasting process.  Here at Death Wish Coffee we have found a coffee bean with close to 200% the amount of caffeine as your typical coffee shop coffee; we roast it to a medium-dark for a strong and robust flavor and then we grind it to the proper level for extreme potency. 




Can someone speak to how the caffein compound is impacted during the roasting process? I believe Roast published an article on this topic a few years ago.

Thank you,

Matt (Premier Gourmet Master Roaster)

Caffeine levels relate to the roasting process in the sense that as a bean roasts longer it losers more caffeine. The longer it stays in the roaster, the more substance of each bean begins to disappear. So although the flavors might make you think otherwise a light to medium roast coffee will have more caffeine, even though a dark roasts tastes much stronger.


So is this a advert for Death Wish, or could Roast maybe ask some questions about what kind of beans they are using? Are they adding caffeine back? Is it a blending practice? They are making claims that sound slightly unbelievable to me, so we just take them at their word? Is this supposed to announce the new found popularity of Death Wish? What’s the point?
