Noted: There's now Death Wish Coffee in space.

The Round Lake-based coffee company produced packets of its "world's strongest coffee" for the residents of the International Space Station. And the coffee arrived there yesterday aboard a cargo capsule launched by SpaceX.

The coffee delivery grew out of a company podcast conversation with a retired NASA astronaut. And Death Wish then worked with the NASA Food Lab to create an instant version of its coffee. (It's basically brewed, concentrated, and freeze dried.)

So, now that the coffee has arrived at the space station, Death Wish is touting itself as "the strongest coffee in the galaxy." It's a bold statement given the size of the Milky Way (with sugar?). But maybe over caffeination is the Great Filter.
