This coffee will keep you up for 18 hours

September 7, 2016

This coffee is so intense that it should be illegal. Actually, it does come with a warning. Because most espresso shots come with about 63 milligrams of caffeine, this has 5 GRAMS. (sounds more like cocaine than coffee).

It's called "Asskicker", and it's served at a cafe in Adelaide, Australia. Its inventor originally created it to help a local emergency room nurse who needed something to keep her going during long hours and overnights. 

This version is actually toned down from the original, which kept the nurse up for about 3 days (she sipped it over a 2 day period). 

This brew is definitely NOT for people with high blood pressure, or any desire to sleep.
