A very, very long time ago (2003) we came up with the idea of roasting coffee and selling it online. A very important part of selling coffee online at that time (and still very much so today) was to have a range of blends. One of the blends we felt we needed was a breakfast, high caffeine, unsubtle, in-your-face, big old wake-up blend. Not a sipping coffee, but a big, huge gulper. That blend was called 'Breakfast Bomb'.
Fast forward over a decade and this coffee has remained a very important part of our line-up, as well as a very popular blend. In fact, little has changed with it over the years. At one point we felt it was time to revamp it and bring it up to a modern-day standard, as we did with all our other blends that make us so happy and which we are proud to bring to you.
Breakfast Bomb works well in espresso or filter (for my taste) and is a pick-me-up. For many years, the blend consisted of 80% Sumatra and 20% Robusta. That was it. As we went along, we swapped the original Robusta for the very best one we had at any given time, but it otherwise stayed pretty much the same.
But now it's grown up, and this is our modern day take on an old classic. In the cup it's overtly big, with a huge mouthfeel: it is lairy and full of caffeine. It's a real Breakfast Bomb.
