Morning talk show abuzz over Saratoga Coffee

"How big a buzz are you getting from your morning coffee?"

That's the question ABC's Good Morning America host Robin Roberts posed this morning in a segment about Saratoga Coffee Traders' high-caffeine Death Wish Coffee. Watch the segment HERE.

The coffee was highlighted as the world's strongest coffee, offering twice the punch of a normal cup.

A reporter for the morning show raised the question whether or not the coffee is safe to drink. In a voice over, the reporter says, "Right now a 16-ounce monster energy can has about 160 milligrams of caffeine. Sixteen ounces of starbucks coffee, about 330 milligrams. But the same amount of death wish coffee, about 660 milligrams of caffeine."

Dr. Richard Besser, who works for ABC News, said in the segment that someone who drinks coffee all the time probably won't notice the caffeine boost.

Only the coffee beans are available at Saratoga Coffee Traders, which is located on Broadway in Saratoga Springs.
