    Just received my order of High Voltage

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Just had to add my experience with High Voltage here. This has to be my favourite coffee i have recently tried the flavour is amazing it's bold and strong they got the blend just perfect for a strong coffee, I recommend this to coffee snob users, a must try.

    You are a brave person Coffee Lover, just looked at their website and they don't even have a phone number or even an email address, just a form. Who would you have told if you didn't like it or had a problem?

    Luckily for us we have your recommendation - a member who joined today.

    "High Voltage Coffee is certified to contain 1152mg of caffeine per cup or 2500g per 100g of beans. Lab tested by: ( Australian Government Department of Industry, Innovation and Science | National Measure Institute"

    Coffee Lover, hate to tell you that you have been taken in by slick (or not so slick) marketing. The above quote is taken direct from their site, there is no possible way that every 100g of beans have 2500g of caffeine. Even the coffees using caffeine additives don't get that high.

    So the mass of the caffeine is 25 times the mass of the beans that contain the caffeine. What an interesting universe they live in.

    With this unbiased recommendation how could I resist! and all at the bargain price of $159.90 per KG, plus shipping I guess.

    They have 111 reviews on their website, all of which are 5/5 stars from the last 3 months. It's not like someone could just make that up...

    The price seems very reasonable based on the amazing caffeine content...

    I wonder if the shipping is based on the bean mass or the caffeine content?

    Cheers

    I have low current interest in this coffee.
    I have a high resistance to even trying it.
    It's advertising has very little power.

    You could whip it up with butter and it'll become a super-food.

    I'm interested in this product. So that I can achieve MAXIMUM caffeination, are there compatible suppository kits available? Asking for a friend.

    A slight correction required, snipped from their webpage...
    "2500mg per 100g of beans"

    Still showing as the original 2500g on their FAQ page Mal, seems they have only fixed part of their website. Hard to get quality web work Mal, just like it is hard to get quality fake reviews

    I'm not so sure about that, but perhaps I'm just a bit paranoid.
    Maybe that's also the reason why I wonder about the OP's profile picture.

    Perhaps my sarcasm sign was obscured when I posted that. I assure you it was present if not visible. I can't see a profile pic for OP

    This thread is gold!
    Glad to see I'm not the only cynic around here.

    I would put this coffee in the same category as:
    the highest alcohol content wine
    the biggest Horsepower sports car
    I just find myself asking "Why?"

    "High Voltage Coffee is certified to contain 1152mg of caffeine per cup or 2500g per 100g of beans"

    Surely that's a mathematical impossibility? And I really don't think a ridiculously high caffeine content makes for a good coffee anyway.

    Good luck trying to contact the seller, even their Twitter link points to a page that doesn't exist.

    I wonder if they're like "Death Wish" coffee in the US who, I believe, add powdered caffeine to their beans
