Seventy-five percent of all caffeine consumed in U.S. comes from coffee, statistics show

BATAVIA, Illinois , February 21, 2012 (press release) – Let's face it, many Americans need help kick starting their busy mornings with some sort of energy drink. With coffee representing 75 percent of all the caffeine consumed in the U.S.[1], many people fuel themselves with this beverage served hot, iced, black or with cream and sugar. Now instead of drinking several cups throughout the day, coffee lovers can get their caffeine fix with Versanto Force 3X – a new, hyper-caffeinated coffee, a product with three times the caffeine of ordinary coffee.

Versanto's arrival comes at a time when Americans' love of energy is at an all-time high – from canned energy drinks to the saturation of fast food coffee chains, to coffee cup sizes surpassing 30 ounces. Americans enjoy their speed and Versanto Force 3X boasts sports car RPMs at mini-van prices. Versanto hyper-caffeinated coffee currently comes in three flavors: High Octane Premium, Supersonic Cinnamon, and Vortex Vanilla and can be found at grocery stores nationwide where coffee is sold (suggested retail price of $10.99 per 10-ounce bag).

"It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see the long lines at coffee shops and empty shelves of energy drinks to know what people are after," said Paul D. Goudreault, Versanto Marketing Manager. "However, it does take rocket scientists to create an all-natural hyper-caffeinated coffee with exceptional taste. And that's precisely what we've done with Versanto. Coffee snobs and caffeine heads alike love the taste of Versanto."

The secret to Versanto Force 3X Hyper-Caffeinated Coffee's great taste is in its proprietary blend of Arabica coffees and guarana extract, an all-natural caffeine additive that gives Versanto its kick without the bitter taste that is inherent in caffeine. Versanto consumers have been reaping another benefit too: efficient coffee consumption, as the standard three cups of coffee to feel "awake" is now turned into one delicious and energetic cup. Just think what you can accomplish if you're already charged after your first cup of coffee. Maybe you'll leave for work earlier, head to the gym sooner, drop off the kids faster…or land on Mars before anyone else.
