Veteran and firefighter owned coffee company, Fire Department Coffee, Rockford, Ill., unveiled its new extra strength coffee with two times the caffeine. The highly caffeinated dark roast coffee, Stipe Miocic Extra Strength Coffee, contains 333 mg of caffeine — more than double the caffeine of a regular 8-ounce cup, the company says. The new coffee is named after five-time mixed martial arts heavyweight champion and firefighter Stipe Miocic.
"I'm proud to be the inspiration for FDC's Extra Strength Coffee. It's the hardest working coffee in America – created for the hardest working people everywhere," Miocic said in a statement. "Not only does Extra Strength deliver a caffeine energy kick almost as strong as mine, the proceeds from every purchase helps support first responders in need."
Owned and operated by firefighters who are passionate about roasting high quality, great tasting coffee, Fire Department Coffee added Stipe Miocic Extra Strength to its lineup of fresh roasted and spirit infused coffees, all of which have become a staple in fire departments, job sites, offices, and homes across the country, it says.
Firefighter and Fire Dept. Coffee Vice President, Jason Patton said: "Sometimes I get very sporadic sleep working my 24-hour shift at the fire department. That's why we designed a cup of coffee with enough caffeine to keep me focused and clear since lives truly do depend on my ability to think quickly."
Fire Dept. Coffee Owner Luke Schneider added: “"We're taking our robust lines of coffee to next level with a roast that delivers the greatest caffeine jolt of all time. Teaming up with Stipe, a fellow firefighter and one of the greatest heavyweight champions of all time, makes perfect sense for us. He represents our customers who need that perfect cup to fuel their long hours and high-octane lifestyles."
