I love coffee. I drink at least 3 cups a day. I'm not one for SUPER strong coffee though; I'm more of a commercial coffee brand drinker (Maxwell House, Folgers, Eight O'Clock, etc) or flavored coffees, while Mama Melissa LOVES her coffee strong. The stronger, the better, in her words.
So, when I found Death Wish Coffee online, I wanted to try it. I figured it'd be right up Mama Melissa's alley, taste-wise.
PRODUCT DESCRIPTIONSadly, when I requested some, I forgot to mention that I would need PRE-GROUND coffee, so I was sent a bag of whole beans.
We Are the World's Strongest Coffee! Some have called us irresponsible for making this product, we think it's revolutionary.
We went on a mission to find a coffee that is not only dark, rich, bold and flavorful but also has high caffeine content. We started our search online and came up empty handed. Then we researched coffee varietals, roast shades, and picked the brains of our roasters. After a bit of debate, a lot of testing of different blends, and caffeine overload we perfected our brew. Death Wish Coffee was born in late 2011. It is organically grown, fairly traded, and expertly handled. Our roasting team has over 70 years of combined roasting experience.

Text from the back of the bag:
WARNING: WORLD'S STRONGEST COFFEEAfter finding the rotary meat grinder we have and grinding the beans up, we made a pot of coffee.
Our beans are carefully selected & roasted to provide the most highly caffeinated, bold coffee available. We take pride in knowing our coffee has no artificial additives & is both organically grown & fair trade. The caffeine content is intense & may result in sleepless nights, energetic mornings & productive days. Some may say coffee this strong is irresponsible . We think it's revolutionary.
Yes, the coffee is stronger than commercial brands, but it doesn't have the bitter afterbite that I find strong cups of coffee to have. I actually liked it. Mama Melissa said it was okay, but it made her stomach a bit nauseated. Usually, it's the other way around.
Death Wish Coffee is available in whole bean, ground and K-Cup varieties, directly from their website.
If you like strong coffee, Death Wish Coffee is the PERFECT brand to drink. It definitely lives up to it's name and claims!
WOULD RECOMMEND: Yes.
A huge thank you to the CSR at Death Wish Coffee, Kane, for sending me a bag of coffee and allowing me to do a review for them!
