Banned Coffee, one of many claiming to be the world’s strongest coffee, has 39.5 mg of caffeine per fluid ounce of brewed coffee or 474 mg in a standard 12 oz coffee mug.

Now to clear up and confusion. Banned Coffee is simply the name and has not actually been banned. Banned Coffee is advertised as a medium-dark blend with notes of Berries and Chocolate.

Is Banned Coffee Caffeine Content Considered High?

At 474 mg per cup Banned Coffee’s caffeine content is considered higher than your typical coffee found on store shelves.  While marketed as the World’s Strongest Coffee, Banned actually falls behind many other high caffeine brands and has less than some Starbucks Grande size options like their Veranda Blend and Pike Place Roast

Factors which can change caffeine content include:

  • Brewing Method: Pour Over, Drip, AeroPress
  • Volume of coffee brewed.
