After reading the website i'm leaning towards it being a good tasting robusta blend rather than something else. Their web page does go into the arabica robusta caffeine difference. Not that that would be a bad thing robusta caffeine with arabica taste, would be a win win in my book.

Anyway in the interest of, er, science, we'll call it that. I've ordered up a bag

Have the words Daily Mail not given sufficient warning?

Haven't slept for years, two kids under 4 and an espresso machine put an end to that.

As for death wish coffee, with all the warnings,and the skull and cross bones who wouldn't want to try that :D

Oh, I still remember what that is like. :? I expect you need the espresso to stay awake at work.

I would love to hear a review of this stuff from a forum member. I doubt they would ship it to the UK though. My brother is currently in the USA however and is back in a couple of weeks!!

Well if your brother brings some back and you are willing to try it I am sure we would be interested in your views :? I think most of us like coffee far too much to try this stuff :wink:
