If you’re tired of wishy-washy cappuccinos and lattes, now you can jumpstart your day with the “world’s strongest coffee.”

At least that’s the statement made by the not-so-subtly-named Black Insomnia coffee, which has staked its claim among the world’s best roasts and boasts scientific proof that its blend packs multiple times the punch of a normal cup of java.

The Daily Meal reports that the South African newcomer’s blend boasts 702mg of caffeine for each 12 ounces of its coffee, while reaching “dangerously high levels of caffeine” through harvesting only Robusta beans from Brazil, Guatemala, Ecuador and Rwanda, rather than the tame Arabica variety.

While some java lovers might overlook the taste for its extreme caffeine levels, the brand promises “a nice walnut and almost sweet taste profile,” with a trace of “a burnt and high acidic flavor” for the strongest espresso you’ve ever tasted.

If you dare to try the coffee for yourself, Black Insomnia can be ordered on Amazon, though it’s been sold out in its first week of availability. Never fear though, the company offers the coffee through its website for $16 to $38.
