The Guinness World Records world record for the Largest coffee party (multiple venues) was set by Macmillan Cancer Relief (UK) which broke their record of the previous year for the largest coffee morning with a total number of 576,157 people attending over 26,000 meetings simultaneously throughout the UK on 26 September 2003.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the largest coffee party in a single venue; it involved 8,162 participants and was set by Krüger GmbH & Co. KG (Germany) at the Jugendpark in Cologne, Germany, on 30 August 2009.
With 17524 mg of Caffeine per kg Black Insomnia coffee is 27 per cent stronger then Wodfee who has 13809 mg per kg and 33 per cent stronger than DeathWish Coffee who has only 13179 mg of Caffeine per kg.
The World's strongest coffee has a sweet nutty taste and its strength lies in the robusta beans and the way they are roasted. Black Insomnia is more than two times as strong as Starbucks' dark roast.
According to Black Insomnia founder Sean Kristafor: "If you want to stand out, you need to be the 'est' — the biggest, smartest, strongest, or cheapest."
After founding the company, Kristafor, a coffee enthusiast, first sold locally to cafes in Cape Town, South Africa. Now the the company says it sells five to six tons of coffee every month with customers in more than 22 countries.
