I have been a coffee snob of sorts for many years now and I am always looking for a good cuppa.

I heard about Black Rifle coffee on the radio. Owned and operated by veterans. Lots of good reviews. So, I decided to give them a try. I ordered three different dark roasts as that is my preference. Apparently they roast the beans just prior to shipping so it’s very fresh.

I got the package last Friday and first up was their Beyond Black blend. The hype is real. This is excellent coffee. Nice dark oily beans. Very smooth and aromatic. Acidity is low.

I also got their Blackbeard’s Delight and Black Buffalo blends.

If anyone is looking for a good cuppa, I highly recommend these guys.

In this case, yep.

Years ago when I was working I despised the cheap grocery store coffee that our Dept used for the employee coffee room. One day I brought in my electric percolator and some Peet’s coffee. Before the pot was done brewing people were stopping by smelling that coffee and asking for a cup.

It became a daily ritual for me. Soon all the employees pitched in and we bought a new machine and good coffee for all.

From my end, I can whole hardheartedly recommend these two:

http://espressovivace.com/our-coffee/blends/ (Vivace Dolce)

Fantastic coffee, especially for espresso-based drinks. This is all I used to order before I finally found a good local roaster.

I knew I should not have clicked on this I’ve been on the fence for months about this company and hearing all excellent reviews now I gotta give it a try.

Where are the beans from?
Ethiopia? Columbia? Brazil?
Arabica (the best).
Robusto (not good at all)

The beans are more important than the roaster. We have many roasters in my area of Central Florida. The one I am most familiar with gets his beans shipped to him in Burlap Sack. Showed me how his roaster works. Fantastic.

Not sure where youre from Pim, but if you have a Fairway market near you check them out. Usually 30-50 types of beans roasted on location, very fair pricing too. I hate buying it anywhere else. This week I got a lb of Ethiopian Harrar and a lb of fair trade Mexican organic for 21$. Youd probably like Sumatran or Sulawesi coffee if you like the darker oily stuff.

Have you ever thought about roasting your own? We started doing this about 3 years ago and we get amazing coffee, for the price of Folger's. It's not really that hard to do either.

For the Beyond Black the beans are from Columbia.

I’ve thought of that but I am slowing down in my older age.

roasting on your own, nothing beats it; all organic and natural; however, anything you buy you're paying premium for the advertisement and the product is usually just mediocre but it is loaded with atificials for sure

I love a good cup or robust coffee. I love the way I brew my own.
