The worldâ€™s strongest coffee is available in Malaysia | Some transvestites (mak nyah) working as prostitutes in the city of Alor Star, Kedah, Malaysia have reportedly been taking â€œreggae coffeeâ€ (kopi reggae) to boost their energy levels to such an extent that:
(i) they could stay awake all night, even until dawn if necessary, and hence (ii) they could entertain more than 10 customers in a single evening.
However, it is unclear why the name â€œreggaeâ€ was chosen. Nor could I find any mention of a recommendation for chilling out with Bob Marleyâ€™s â€œI Shot The Sheriffâ€ while sipping from a glass.
Anyway, one of them who only wanted to be known as Syazliyana, in â€œherâ€ 20s, said:
(i) the effects of the coffee could be felt within 5 minutes of drinking it: one would feel refreshed, energized and high. (ii) it has a peculiar taste, unlike any other coffee
To boost its power even more, the coffee is laced with drugs like methamphetamine hydrocloride (syabu) or marijuana (ganja). This is the high end concoction. For a cheaper alternative, kratom leaves in powder form (daun ketum / daun biak) are added instead. Kratom leaves could be bought for RM30 per kg.

Espresso is by far the strongest coffee you can make, as well as the most dense (you get a bigger hit with less).
CaffÃ¨ espresso, or just espresso is a concentrated coffee beverage brewed by forcing hot water under pressure through finely ground coffee. Compared to other coffee brewing methods, espresso often has a thicker consistency, a higher concentration of dissolved solids, and crema (foam) . As a result of the pressurized brewing process, all of the flavours and chemicals in a typical cup of coffee are very concentrated. For this reason, espresso is the base for other drinks, such as lattes, cappuccino, macchiato, mochas, and americanos.
While espresso has more caffeine per unit volume than most beverages, compared on the basis of usual serving sizes, a 30 mL (1 US fluid ounce) shot of espresso has about half the caffeine of a standard 180 mL (6 US fluid ounces) cup of drip brewed coffee, which varies from 80 to 130 mg, and hence a 60 mL (2 US fl oz) double shot of espresso has about the same caffeine as a 180 ml (6 US fl oz) cup of drip brewed coffee. In coffee brewing terms, espresso and brewed coffee should have the same extraction (about 20% of the coffee grounds are extracted into the coffee liquid), but espresso has a higher brew strength (concentration, in terms of dissolved coffee solids per unit volume), due to having less water

I don't think there is much variance on the amounts of caffeine that different coffee beans from around the world yield, not enough to matter anyway, but Espresso is probably the strongest brew that is still palatable.
