The world’s strongest coffee might be "Black Insomnia," which is new to the U.S., but was introduced last year in South Africa.

While a typical 12-ounce dark coffee from Starbucks contains 195 milligrams of caffeine, the Black Insomnia Coffee — created by Sean Kristafor — contains 702 milligrams of caffeine in a 12-ounce coffee, according to Today.

"Death Wish," a coffee that’s been sold as the world’s strongest coffee in the past is now being forced to step aside, as there’s a new sheriff in town.

Death Wish Coffee contains 13.2 grams of caffeine per kilogram, but based on tests conducted by a Swiss laboratory, the Black Insomnia has 17.5 grams of caffeine per kilogram, Today noted.

The new coffee is so strong that its maker is warning its competitors not to "attempt to surpass this content in the interest of public health and safety," according to Fox News.

The coffee went on sale in the U.S. this week, and 16-ounce bags of it are also available online, Tech Times noted.

The caffeine in Black Insomnia will be tempting for coffee lovers to try, but too much intake of it could be extremely dangerous for consumers.

According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, adults should not have more than 400 milligrams of caffeine in one day, as too much consumption could lead to "headaches, insomnia, muscle tremors, irritability, and rapid heartbeat."

"Caffeine overdose is dangerous and can kill you," according to the FDA. "FDA knows of a 19-year-old college student who died after taking an overdose of caffeine tablets to stay awake. A caffeine tablet contains as much caffeine as one to three 5-ounce cups of coffee."
