Many of you, no doubt, started your day off with a hot cup of coffee. But now you can find a killer cup of coffee, metaphorically speaking.

Actually, it's the story of a coffee company that claims to produce the first and last cup of coffee you'll need to kick start your day, and considering the amount of caffeine, maybe your month.

This medium-dark roast coffee blend from Upstate New York, claims to be the 'most highly caffeinated premium dark roast organic coffee in the world.'

For comparison's sake, a large McDonalds cup of coffee has 145 milligrams of caffeine, and a Starbucks grande has 330. A similar cup of this coffee contains 520 milligrams of caffeine. That's almost 5 times what you normally get in a typical coffee shop coffee.

It's name? Death Wish.

That's right, it's named after the famous, or infamous, Charles Bronson movie franchise.

The organically grown, fair trade coffee sells for $19.99 per one-pound bag on Amazon.com.

'I was zipping around like I was the Flash,' one satisfied user wrote giving it five out of five stars on Amazon.com.

The company offers a money-back guarantee, according to its website deathwishcoffee.com.

They write, 'Buy a bag, if you hate it, send it back (within 60 days) and we will refund you your money plus shipping. No Risk. It's the best part about selling a product we believe in.'
