One coffee drink might be too dangerous to drink

By Susana Victoria Perez, Veuer

We all want a jolt from our morning coffee to get us through the start of our day -- but one particular coffee drink in Australia has so much caffeine that it could be too dangerous for some to drink.

We're talking 80 times the amount of caffeine of the average single cup of coffee -- now that's a jolt!

It's called the "A** Kicker" and was originally created by coffee shop owner Steve Benington to help an ER nurse who had to stay awake overnight. It has since been "toned down" for coffee lovers that visit the shop.

The FDA reports that the average American consumes two 5-ounce cups of coffee a day, only a tiny fraction of Benington's concoction.

The "A** Kicker" is meant to be consumed over long periods of time and not suggested for people with high blood pressure or heart conditions. The caffeine buzz can last about 12-18 hours.
