Cape Town Boasts The World's Strongest Roast - BLACK INSOMNIA

Cape Town Boasts The World's Strongest Roast - BLACK INSOMNIA

The best tasting coffee in Cape Town, containing the highest caffeine level on the planet. 

Hello, everybody. My name is Saskia. I'm from Cape Town and I am a coffeeholic. 

I need help.

No, I do not need to check into a caffeine rehab centre or attend anonymous group meetings every Wednesday night. I do not need to cut down on the amount of coffee I drink per day (which is about 4 on average) or replace my habitual coffee-drinking patterns with green tea substitutes. What I do need help with is getting my hands on a steaming hot cup of Black Insomnia's coffee.

Proven by independent lab results and confirmed by the Caffeine Informer, Black Insomnia Coffee is the world's strongest coffee with a minimum of 702 mg of Caffeine per 354 mL cup. Where can you find this heaven-sent caffeine fix? In Cape Town, of course! 

If you're a coffeeholic like me, you may find yourself drinking cup after cup of your store-bought coffee throughout the day. You're craving for that caffeine to pulse through your veins and to give you that energy rush, helping you get your daily errands done vivaciously.

With Black Insomnia's perfect blend of beans from Brazil, Ecuador, Guatemala and Rwanda which are all roasted in Cape Town, 1 to 2 cups a day is all you’ll need. You don't even need to add sweetener or sugar, as the beans contain a naturally sweet, walnut-esque flavour.

Black Insomnia’s founder, Sean Kristafor, aimed to produce the best tasting coffee in Cape Town, containing the highest caffeine level on the planet. Seeing as I am a coffeeholic, it is shameful to say that I have not yet personally indulged in Sean's creations. Therefore, me saying that Sean's aim was successfully achieved would not be a true or reliable statement.

I have done some reading online to find out exactly where in Cape Town I could get my hands on the world's strongest coffee. There are a number of coffee shops in Cape Town (and across South Africa) that serve Black Insomnia, which I plan to visit very soon and have added them onto my bucketlist:

  • Hard Pressed Café: 1 Bree Street, Cape Town City Centre
  • Ginja Beanz: Corner of Bree & Suffren Street, Langebaan
  • Haas Collective: 19 Buitenkant St, Cape Town City Centre
  • Beerhouse: 223 on Long Street, Cape Town City Centre
  • Shift Espresso Bar: 45 Main Road, Sea Point, Cape Town 

If any of my fellow coffeeholics in Cape Town have tried Black Insomnia's coffee, please let me know in the comment section and tell me all about your experience and thoughts. Would you recommend Black Insomnia coffee? What was the caffeine high like? Was it value for worth? Were the blends as delicious as they sound?
