    Death Wish Coffee: A reader ordered it... but what's it like?

    One of my readers at my blog ordered this coffee.

    Death Wish Coffee, The World's Strongest Ground Coffee Beans, Fair Trade and Organic

    I'd never heard it of it... but the blurb says:

    "Death wish coffee has double the amount of caffeine of a standard cup of coffee and it tastes amazing^We take pride in our beans being fair trade and organic^The beans are carefully selected and roasted to perfection in order to provide a bold, smooth and strong cup of coffee^We use numerous tests and record keeping to ensure that each batch is consistent so that you can always expect the quality that matches our standards"

    Have you tried it? What's it like? What other coffees are similar? Do they boost the caffeine with the addition of robusta beans? How do you get "double the caffeine" from arabica beans?

    Curious.

    Happy Xmas 2014! Keep those beans fresh!

    Have not tried it, but it sounds like a gimmick.

    Yeah, double the caffeine because you have to use twice as much grounds per cup.

    Probably a blend of Robusta and gimmick.

    It's 100% robusta, and the brewing instructions are 2.5 tablespoons of finely ground coffee for 6 oz of water. So it's a combination of robusta beans and higher coffee to water ratio.

    There is a bag of it on the counter at work. No one dares open it. It is not inviting.

    Tried it couple of months ago, it was ok. Definitely stronger than normal coffee but did not feel the "death" part. However, the sthrength and taste also depends on the water and coffee ground ratio and how fine the beans are grounded. Just my personal apionion.

    It's brilliant. Grab some organic, fair trade $1.50 per pound robusta, get a bunch of custom printed bags with a skull and crossbones at $.30 per unit, add roasting costs, packaging costs, etc, they end up with an under $3 bag of garbage with effective marketing selling for $20/lb. Once listing and fulfillment fees are paid to Amazon, I bet they are netting $8 per unit. The beauty is, they don't need to worry about how it performs on the cupping table because their target audience doesn't even know what a cupping table is!

    I'm on the verge of copying them, except my skull will have a moustache to differentiate itself from their logo.
