The Anatomy of a Death Cup

By DeathWishCoffee — / Coffee Talk

Coffee for One + Done

Some days brewing a pot of the strong stuff just isn't happening—for a variety of reasons. Opening the bag, measuring and scooping beans, grinding them to perfection, pouring water without spilling it all over the place—it’s all a lot to ask of a human brain before the sun is up.  

Maybe you’re not a morning person, or you’re running late to a meeting, or your kid won’t stop screaming the “Moanoa” soundtrack at the top of their lungs... No matter what your day looks like, we are proud to be the purveyors of effortless, piping hot, single-serve bliss.

How to Death Cup

Death Cupsaka our version of single-serve coffee podscontain only fresh-as-hell Death Wish Coffee and are easy AF to brew. Death Cups are compatible with Kuerig 1&2, Breville, Cuisinart and Mr. Coffee coffee machines. So, pop one in your single-serve coffee maker (you will need to fill it with water first—spills are okay) and you are ready to brew. Each petite pod comes filled with your preferred roast of the World's Strongest Coffee—choose from Original Dark, Medium Roast and Valhalla Java

Stronger Than Your Average

With double the caffeine in each cup, this hyper juice doesn’t take much to get you going. Roasted to bold perfection, this single-serve pod is packed with two times the strength of your average cup of joethat’s roughly the same amount of caffeine as two 12-ounce Red Bulls (without the chemicals you can’t pronounce)

Death to Waste

Death Cups are completely recyclable and filled with our Fair Trade and Organic Certified coffees, so they support a sustainable, eco-friendly lifestyle. Little-known fact: The Grim Reaper recycles and has a compost pile—because Earth is the only planet with coffee, and we’d love to keep it that way.

Pumpkin Heads Will Roll

Another reason to do Death Cups: the sweet, spicy, spooky vibes of pumpkin season. For the first time ever, Pumpkin Chai Death Cups (the coffee formerly known as Cauldron-Aged Pumpkin) are finally here.
