I bought a 1lb bag of Death Wish Coffee for Pennsic, and it came in yesterday. Naturally, I had to give it a test brew this morning. So far, the flavor is fantastic. It's bold and smooth. Not overly bitter or tannic like one would expect from a "strong" coffee, flavor wise.
...However. I'm half way through the cup and I'm getting the giggles.
Well that was anticlimactic. I expected the jitters and the ability to taste colors. Come to find out I was just giggling because an ant was crawling across my foot.
I blame Richter for this. His sharpened roast back in the Boston Daze must have made me immune.
That coffee got me through my looney bin job. It was a replacement for nutrition, sleep, and sanity.
Let me see if I can scare up another cheap espresso machine - we'll put that stuff through it.
