    I bought some of this last night, just out of curiosity. I’ve seen it in the grocery store several times, but passed on it because it’s $18/pound. But I had a coupon for $3 off, so I tried it. Still too expensive for coffee, but heck, I wanted it.

    Result? Well, I didn’t die.

    It’s just basic dark roast coffee. Not bad at all, but not in the top ten coffee experiences of my life. And certainly not worth the money.

    And I didn’t notice any extra caffeine kick from it at all. I drank four cups between 7am and 12 noon, and noticed no difference between the Death coffee and my regular Folgers Black Silk.

    Try it if someone else is buying... but don’t spend your own money on it.

    would not be for me. My daughter got me a bunch of black rifle coffee and I was disappointed. We buy Surf City Surfer's Blend in 12 lb box and love it. It is a medium blend but plenty of oomph to get through the day AND taste really good.

    Some people like variety with coffee. I don't. I don't even like it gifted to me. I know what I want and I don't want to change it.

    The rest of my family... they like variety and trying different brands, roasts, cream, sugar, etc. I've just stopped being polite about it :cool:

    This.

    Marketers have discovered the package has a lot more selling power than the actual contents of the package. So-called "craft" beers and other "curated" products spend tons of dough on packaging. I have friends that buy beer based on how cool the bottle looks so they can post pics on Faceboob.

    That's kind of how I am too. I don't put anything in my coffee, because I like to taste the coffee itself. When someone gifts coffee to me, it's often something like hazelnut-some-thing-or-other... and the roast overpowers the coffee.

    Sort of like if someone wanted to be nice and bought you random guitar strings. You'd be gracious, but you're unlikely to ever string up your guitar with them.

    I hate to go to Starbucks and it its always too strong for my tastes, but I do like their grocery store breakfast blend. We started grinding beans a few months back and I enjoy fresh ground.

    You can always replace the water you use for the coffee and make some with some red bull or any other energy drink ?

    Thanks for the review.
    We pretty much exclusively buy from a local Raleigh company, Larry's Beans. They're not only fair trade and organic, they are on a direct line with the farms they buy from. Not cheap, but damn fine coffee and we just love the whole process they've built.

    Nevermind the coffee, that is the best beef seasoning in the store... roasts, ground beef, steaks, everything!

    I like a good dark roast, but not if it's bitter. Starbucks is terrible coffee in my opinion - strong, but waaaaaay too bitter.

    San Francisco Coffee Company has an espresso roast that is rather good (I think that's the one). Italian roasts are good.

    Strangely enough, Ikea has a fairly good coffee as well - and it's rather affordable!

    One of my friends got drawn into that brain octane melted butter super coffee craze from a few years back. I kept telling him energy is energy and no matter how you mix butter and coffee, without magic they're still just butter and coffee. Eventually he came to the same conclusion after a month of frustration and disappointment. That's the only way some people learn.

    Oh man, you are not kidding! I just bought that huge container of it at Costco for the coming deer season. I like to use the marinade recipe on the back (but I use canola in place of olive oil) and grill deer steaks to about 130F...delicious!!!

    I recently learned that people have been doing that...butter in coffee. I have never tried it and don't think I ever will, but it seems pretty weird.

    Yes.
    • Open the bag.
    • Measure coffee, and put it in the filter.
    • Fill the water compartment.
    • Push "Brew".
    For some reason, they don't include an allen wrench to push the "Brew" button. You have to do it with your finger! :mad::mad::mad::lol::lol::lol:
