A Cup Of Death Wish Coffee Will Jolt You Awake


And today's last word in business is extreme buzz.

If your regular coffee is not strong enough to jolt you awake in the morning, maybe you'll be interested in a cup of Death Wish, which is our last word in business.

Death Wish is the name of a coffee roaster in upstate New York. It claims to sell the strongest coffee in the world: 200 percent more caffeine than your typical coffee shop brew, according to the website, which also calls Starbuck's "sissy coffee."

The owners say they found a highly caffeinated bean that they roast medium dark for a strong flavor. Death Wish coffee costs $20 a pound. And the company is so sure of the buzz that they say you'll get, that they have a 60-day, 110 percent money back guarantee if you feel insufficiently wired after drinking it.

And that's the business news on MORNING EDITION, from NPR News. Or perhaps I should say: andthat'sthebusinessnewsonMORNINGEDITIONfromNPRNews.I'mSteveInskeep.
