That's a no win scenario.

I'd have liked it better if they hadn't even done the whole "OMG he doesn't understand what I'm saying, the competitive eater I've invited doesn't understand a word I'm saying and is actually consuming the coffee!" premise in the first place. Also, if they would combine competitive eating with competitive coffee drinking, Kobayashi could break the record for most underwater cable laid in two hours, beating the 12.4 miles in 2 hours record set by Alcatel-Lucent in 2003.

Dear God I hope he threw it up or got his ass on a bike a rode a hundred miles.
Otherwise... well, that much coffee isn't pleasant.

He's only taking a sip from each cup. You can see into the closer cups as they rotate the table, and they're still half full.

So 42 half cup swigs is 21 cups, but is it really 21 cups? They are just large swigs. I'd say more like 10 cups total, still substantial, but not 42 cups.

He still drank those two full carafes at the end, which is what... 16 cups by themselves?

Even for his inhuman digestive system, I can't imagine the stress that he will be enduring.

Same for me. I like coffee after dinner, and then a nap.

That woman lost me when she said 'cupping.'

Is there a fatal dose of caffeine?
 
2012-05-09 12:16:45 PM  
The grounds are left in the cup during cupping. That can't be pleasant for chugging.

The only good part of that video was Andrea. She was rather attractive. Not smoking hot... but attractive. Actually pretty damn good looking.

And by pretty damn good looking, I mean I'd put my spoon in her cup over and over and over and over and over. At least 42 times. Then we'd do some cupping.

Because that's how it's properly done.

I'm glad I wasn't the only one that found her attractive.

rudemix: Is there a fatal dose of caffeine?


Absolutely, though likely not one that you could achieve with it diluted in coffee. At least according to this site, between 3-20 grams. A can of coke classic has 0.034 g, a can of red bull has 0.080 g.

I assume he was drinking out of his own personalized mug.

/link is hot like the coffee beans that I used to pick in Guatemala

I am willing to bet, That was not coffee he drank. Or just decaf.

What he consumed is arguably a near-lethal dose of caffeine. Theres about 100mg of caffeine per cup of coffee on average. He consumed the equivalent to about 4 grams of caffeine. At the minimum he would get the flop sweat and heart palpitations associated with too much caffeine intake. Im pretty sure it was water colored to look like coffee instead.

Umm, anyone consider they were likely drinking decaf?

Are you also accounting for the fact that the 100mg is per 8oz cup, and cupping is usually done with 6oz cups, and on top of that he didn't finish them all?

If we extrapolate a bit and presume those were proper 6oz cupping cups, and he finished 3/4ths of each one on *average* to account for the one he did clearly polish off, that's 56.25mg per cup. Using the counter as physical cups, he drank 18 in that fashion, which is 1.0125g. Now lets presume the carafes are true 12-cup carafes, which again are measured in 6oz servings not 8 and keeps true to the 42 cup counter in the video, that's .9g per carafe.

Grand total, 2.8125g of caffeine. A ton, yes, but still below the very lowest lethal dose by a good 1.875 6oz cups.

Given that lethal is 3-20g, and we go with an average of 11.5g, that puts him 86 cups shy of death.
Even then, we're presuming none of it was decaf.

Drink up, Kobeyashi!

Wikipedia says the fatal dose of caffeine translates to 80-100 cups of coffee.

All things considered, taking a sip out of 48 cups isn't the same as "downing" 48 cups of coffee.
