8 of the most caffeinated coffee drinks

And the coffee drinks that pack the most punch are…

Death Wish coffee

Unlike most blends brewed from Arabica beans, Death Wish uses robusta beans that contain 200 percent more caffeine --and is billed as the world's strongest cup of coffee available commercially.  The company, which started in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., guarantees your money back if the cup isn't the strongest you've ever had  -- and for those who need a shot fast, it even has single-serve coffee capsules, too.

651 milligrams / per 12 fluid ounce


Starbucks Venti Coffee

This leading coffee chain sells many high-caffeine beverages but its brewed coffee really packs a punch. Keep in mind that depending on brewing times and other factors, the amount of caffeine in a single cup can vary --but just one cup of this has more caffeine than what the FDA recommends.

415 milligrams / 20 fluid ounce

Dunkin’ Donuts Large Coffee with Turbo Shot

When a large cup just isn't enough, Dunkin' Donuts patrons can add a signature Turbo Shot to their brew.  Turbo coffee is a medium-roasted ground coffee with slightly more caffeine than its original blend.  Mix the two, and you'll be good to go all day.

395 milligrams / 20 fluid ounce

Shock Coffee Triple Latte

Each can of this pre-packaged coffee drink contains three shots of espresso but caffeine amounts can vary from pack to pack. For chocolate lovers, a mocha version is also available. 

231 milligrams / 8 fluid ounce

Biggby Red Eye (brewed coffee with espresso)

This drink will certainly help with those red eyes. Biggby Red Eye is espresso combined with normal drip coffee, and can really get your motor running.  The growing Midwest franchise carries several heart-pumping varieties, so you don't have to choose just one.

274 milligrams / 16 fluid ounce

Peet's Brewed Coffee

Peet's has a reputation for making strong tasting coffee from its deep-roast process.  But despite the taste, its medium roasts actually contain more caffeine. This medium-bodied blend is a top seller at this national coffee house chain.

267 milligrams / 16 fluid ounce

Panera Frozen Mocha

Creamy sweet coffee drinks may not always be as caffeinated as their less-adorned counterparts, but don't be fooled by Panera's Frozen Mocha.   This drink will definitely keep you awake.

267 milligrams / 16 fluid ounce

Starbucks Grande Caffè Americano

Americanos are a mix of espresso blended with water, and Starbucks Grande size contains 3 full shots.  

225 milligrams / 16 fluid ounce
