I must say this was an unusual request.  Biker Coffee contacted me via Twitter (@ijustwant2ride  @biker_coffee) about doing a taste test of their product.  I told them that I had quite coffee quite a while ago but was willing to get a small group together to do the tasting.  They agreed and this is what happened….

We received two bags of coffee their “Original Blend” and their “Full Throttle Dark Roast”.   A may no longer drink coffee but WOW did this stuff smell GREAT!!!  The taste testers all agreed this coffee smelled awesome.  Biker Coffee could be a kitchen potpourri all by itself!

The general thought was that it was good to very good but not special.

The Biker Coffee “Full Throttle Dark Roast” was what got everyone talking.  Before tasting I heard comments like “man that looks strong”, “they were not kidding about dark”.  I think folks were a bit intimidated by the strong look and smell.  Everyone tried it straight black for the first taste and they all said they were surprised how good it was!  After a few of them added their cream or cream/sugar I asked how it was then, the first response…. “I am taking what is left in the bag home with me!”

Over all everyone preferred Biker Coffee’s “Full Throttle” to the “Original Blend”.  No one IMG_20180408_160312550_HDRstated anything negative about the taste of either and all loved the smell of both blends.  But, to a person they all preferred the Dark Roast over the original.  While I don’t know if they placed an order, I did notice a couple folks with Biker Coffee’s website on their phones.

Speaking of their website, here is a tidbit that describes what they are about.  What makes Biker Coffee different is that the beans are roasted to order. That means when customers place an online order, the beans are roasted and the flavor-sealed bag is delivered to their doorstep. It also means our coffee is at peak freshness when you open the bag. The robust aroma, accompanied by a rich, bold flavor, will get you ready for whatever the road (or day) brings. Our beans are sourced from free trade, sustainable farms in the mountains of Costa Rica and Guatemala. We add the attitude in the states”.

So why a 4 star review?  It came down to the enthusiasm folks displayed (in addition to their comments).  The enthusiasm over the “Original Blend” was no better than average (a 3) but as soon as the “Full Throttle” started brewing folks perked up (LOL) all the conversation after that point was about the Dark Roast (enthusiasm level 5).

4 out 5 stars

    Hey Warren – thanks for reviewing Biker Coffee. We appreciate the honest feedback and we’re glad your “team” especially liked the Full Throttle. Most of our week are “Full Throttle” days. Keep riding and enjoy the nice weather!
