The Drink: Meth Coffee
Type: Whole Bean
Overall Rating: 3.5 Out Of 5 Coffee Mugs
According to the Meth Coffee website, it’s a voliatheraputic beverage, that wakes zombies, fucks with perfectionists, straightens drunks, brightens house chores, and cuts boredom like goddamn razor. It says, do not drink alone and should not be consumed by minors, hazelnut flavor whores or anger management seminar attendees.
In other words, it’s not your grandmother’s Sanka.
Just for the record, Meth Coffee contains no actual Methamphetamines (although it was banned from Illinois), but it does come with a warning to not overdose on it. In other words, Dave Grohl should stay far away from this coffee.
Meth Coffee is 99.9999% Arabica beans, with the remaining ingredient being Yerba Mate, which is a natural stimulant that does actually contain caffeine.

But, was it all just hype? How was the actual coffee?
From the moment that I poured it into my coffee mug and took my first sniff, I started to think that it might actually be more than just hype. It caught my attention with enticing, yet strong, nutty aroma. There was a woody feeling to it, with hints of honey. I’ve never smelled meth before, but I’m going to assume it doesn’t smell anything like that.
The taste convinced me that it wasn’t just fancy packaging and clever marketing. The taste was a rich, nutty flavor with hints of honey around the edges. My tongue was left covered with dark roast flavor, that was cigar like. I devoured my first cup and immediately, started looking around nervously for my second.
Meth Coffee was exceptionally smooth. It had a medium body and medium-dark roast flavor.
You can pick it up from the dealer on the corner or online for $12 a bag. It comes in whole bean or powder form.
Packaging includes directions on how to brew with a French Press or with a sock.
I wasn’t expecting much with Meth Cofffee, other than a lot of hype. It ended up surprising me and turned out to be an above average coffee, earning 3.5 on the Daily Shot Of Coffee.
Thanks to Jamie from The Coffee Adventures for supplying me with this dose of Meth Coffee.
