I Finally Opened It!
I finally opened my 1lb bag of Whole Bean Death Wish Coffee! Upon opening, I was greeted with an amazing smell of coffee rushing out of the air tight bag. The beans themselves had a nice color to them for a dark roast. It was glorious to say the least. If you follow me on Snap Chat, you got to experience the whole process with me, from opening the bag to grinding the beans, loading the drip machine up and taking my first sip.
Needless to say, a couple friends were in a “WTF dude!” mindset after seeing a billion pictures and videos of the whole process! But I don’t care. It was the best day ever.
First time having @deathwishcoffee and it has been everything I ever dreamed it would be! #deathwishcoffee #coffee #coffeetime #coffeeporn #coffeemug #killit #fitness #health #bodybuilding #whateverittakes #onlineviking #adventure #health #loveitkillit #zakkwylde #xtremotivation #cantstopwontstop #vikings #valhallajava #valhalla #muscle
So, overall my experience was quite satisfactory. If it would have been my first cup of coffee of the day, the affects would have been tremendous. Unfortunately, it was late evening when I decided to open it up. I’m quite numb to caffeine these days, so I had two cups (roughly 1200mg of caffeine!) Once you hit a certain intake in a day, caffeine’s affects aren’t the same. Needless to say, being an evening Cup o’ Joe, it wasn’t as strong as it could have been. I got a slight energy boost, but nothing I’m not used to after being on strong pre-workouts and fat burners. However, it is much more enjoyable than your typical, stale, store bought coffee! The taste is much nicer. It’s got a stronger flavor due to the high caffeine content, so if you’re numb to burnt coffee from Starbucks, Death Wish Coffee is a party for your mouth.
Moving forward, tomorrow I plan to grind up an espresso shot, brew a drip pot, and combine them just to see what happens! I’m sure it will be nothing short of insane and enjoyable. I’ll also be sure to make it my first cup of the day to get the full affect of that which is Death Wish Coffee! I’m highly looking forward to Valhalla Java in the coming weeks, as that one supposedly has a smoother taste to it.
Would I recommend Death Wish Coffee? Hell yeah! Will I purchase it again? Definitely! It has such a nice flavor to it. The price is a little steep to keep a regular supply in house, so it will be a special occasion drink or a quick preparation scrambling for the door drink. One 1lb. bag of whole bean will net you at least a week’s worth of relatively fresh coffee. I separate the whole beans in to zip lock freezer bags in a pot size of coffee, label, and freeze them just to make it hopefully last longer. When making a pot, I of course pull 1 bag out, grind it up, then brew it! It’s a small extra step in the process for the freshest coffee you can get besides roasting your own beans.
Final say in it 10/10, will buy again, but maybe once a month at the absolute most. (Until I’m rollin’ in dough of course!)
