NEW YORK CITY -- Death Wish Coffee is launching into space on June 28 aboard SpaceX CRS-15, officially making it the galaxy's strongest coffee.

Death Wish Coffee combines robusta and arabica beans and is roasted with a process to ensure 200% more caffeine than standard coffee. It's typically sold in 1-lb bags of whole and ground beans and in single-cup "Death Cups" capsules. For its launch into space, the company created an instant blend of freeze-dried coffee, packaged by NASA, in astronaut drink pouches. It's designed to caffeinate the crew aboard the International Space Station, without sacrificing the coffee's flavor and potency.

"We couldn't think of a better way to showcase the smoothness and strength of our coffee than by providing the crew aboard the International Space Station with an easy-to-make blend that will keep them on their feet, so to speak," noted Mike Brown, Death Wish Coffee's founder.
