They set out to make the best coffee they could with Robusta beans. From what I hear, the succeeded. It's still Robusa, not Arabica. And it's really potent.

If he still has any, you can get concentrated cold brew made from it from Black Blood of the Earth and even read his comments about it.

Not for me.

 
The world needs more outstanding coffee.

do you game?:

My question is more of a philosophical one I guess. What better place to ask it also,so here goes. Do you drink coffee for the buzz or taste?
Now while I love the effect of caffeine I really try to embrace the whole experience.  Ive never set out to drink it for the caffeine content.
This is also an interesting read when considering robusta vs arabica beans from Tom at Sweet Marias.

I drink it purely for the consumption experience (taste, smell, mouthfeel, warmth, etc)...always have.  I've never drunk coffee for the caffeine, though I am addicted (ie, get a headache if I skip a day).

More the taste as I love an iced latte with breakfast, and with espresso the taste and mouthfeel and just that relaxing feeling sipping on one. Caffeine has no effect on me, I can even drink a big Cuban Colada down here which is where you have a cup from Moka and pour into thimbles for friends, I can drink that whole thing myself with all that sugar and no effect. Other people I know can have a cup of black and you'd think they were a crackhead off the street lol.

I don't think Sweet Marias currently has any robusta but sometimes they do have good quality robusta for espresso blends to enhance crema.  Tom has claimed that you could roast and brew it straight and actually drink it.  I have tried it and I would say his claim is true. I'm not saying it is great coffee but it is drinkable.  It is useful for its intended purpose but with fresh coffee lack of crema has not been a problem for me so I haven't bothered with it for a long time.

He also on occasion sells "crap espresso" for educational purposes.  He said that it is really not as nasty as the real crap the commercial roasters use but as bad as he can get in reasonable quantities. When he has it there is a one pound limit and he sells it for ~$0.75 / lb.  Of coarse I had to try it.  It is nasty just roasted and brewed, but I tried steaming it, drying it, then roasting it.  The result is not great coffee but it is drinkable and better that I've been served in some restaurants.  I have no idea what the steaming does to its "medicinal" value.

I am not really interested in the coffee, though I do like the occasional Robusta.

I was interested in the T-shirt, and ordered one to go in my coffee tie and T-shirt collection.
