Warning: High Caffeine Content Ahead & {WIN} With Blackbeard’s Brew

Sponsored

There is only one beverage I love more than wine…. and that’s coffee, so when I was approached by the makers of Blackbeard’s Brew, toted as the highest caffeine content coffee in South Africa, to review their products, I jumped at the opportunity!

Blackbeard's Brew About

Blackbeard’s Brew is specifically roasted for them at a local roastery in KZN, using a blend of locally sourced beans mixed with Ethiopian and Vietnamese coffee beans to ensure a strong flavor and a high caffeine content. Their beans are currently being tested at a locally to prove their claim to fame that they have highest caffeine content beans in all of SA. 

Blackbeard's Brew

The coffee, which can be purchased either as beans or pre-ground, when necessary, directly from their Face Book page, did not disappoint. It has the most amazing aroma and I won’t lie, I spent most of the day it was delivered to me, with my nose pressed against the bag, inhaling it’s deep, rich aroma. It’s also super strong and I LOVED it!

 If you choose to purchase the pre-ground coffee, the folks at Blackbeard’s Brew recommend that you use it sooner rather than later as with all coffees, some of the flavor is lost during the grinding. They recommend that the coffee be used in a Aeropress or a French press but it can also be used in a traditional drip coffee machine. I tried the coffee in both my drip machine and my Espresso/Cappuccino maker and it was fabulous both ways! But Blackbeard’s Brew does make a MEAN double Espresso! 

Blackbeard’s Brew can be purchased at a cost of R80 for a 250g bag or R320 for a 1kg  bag and couriered to you anywhere in SA at an additional cost of R40.  Wholesale prices for 5kg or more for home or office use would be R260 per kg.

You can also buy your stash of Blackbeard’s Brew from Takealot.com and Mantality.co.za and Blackbeard’s Brew will be featured in the June edition of the Ooh Box!

      Mmmmmmm there is nothing better than discovering a new coffee, coffee brings friends together, gets you through the tough times, and makes the good times that much better! Especially at sunrise after a surf or good long run, when you need that extra caffeine to get through the rest of day. I would love to put this amazing brand to the test, I have only heard good things about it
