Crew: Tasting Notes

Tough As Nails Blend is a big favorite around here! Described as 'so potent you can catch a caffeine buzz from the aroma alone!' A medium dark roast with plenty of visible oils. Rich earthy, grassy and smoky aromas. Surprisingly mild taste, with smoky notes of chicory, grass and almonds. Spicy finish and no lingering aftertaste.

I've been a coffee connoisseur for years. From small batch single origin boutique roasters, to the heavy hitters in the industry. I've had coffees from all over the world and typically lean towards east Africa and Indonesia - but this has to be one of the best if not the best dark roast I've ever had.

Beans are dark and oily. They grind well, but tend to stick in the hopper of my burr grinder more than other beans I usually enjoy (I'm sure due to their oiliness). This blend smells great in the bag, and after grinding.

It does not seem syrupy to me, and the roaster describes. But it is very dark, smooth, and has no bitterness. It's flavor is complex and satisfying. I could drink it at any time and it pairs well with deserts and cigars. This coffee is quickly becoming one of my all time favorites.

The only thing that could ruin a cup of Tough as Nails would be if you added sugar or creamer to cover up it's exceptional taste and smoothness!

This is best when used for espressos as it was originally intended. I tried it in my Technivorn MM and it wasn't as flavorful.

Pros:
Great Taste

Awesome coffee! Honestly it well done. Well balance and deep complexion, bold but not bitter. Hard to find better. Also it has the date the coffee was roasted, (I wish this was required to be on all coffee bags). It was great in french press, espresso, and even drip. It really came to life in the press and espresso though! Enjoy!

Pros:
Great Taste

Cons:
Nothing
