Our newest addition of a CBC blend created by our Shipping Manager and Master of Blends, Keith! He noticed a hole in our lineup of blends- we did not have one with a very high caffeine content. He went to work blending and testing, then more blending and testing until he found the sweet spot. You can expect a bold, earthy taste with enough caffeine to get your day started right!

Take this one to Full City+, into the second crack for a strong espresso shot or a bold, dark roast.

This is not for the weak hearted. After making a moderately dark roast, and medium grind my wife proceeded to brew the first pot. The Muhahaha in the background and the lightning strike should have been a hint. When I got to work, and drank said coffee it kicked in immediately. Usually at lunch I take a nap, however today I was unable to. I am not sure, but I think this blend may have been baned in some states as a controlled substance. Drink with pleasure.

Just had my first cup. I roasted a batch Friday. Everything in the description. Although the caffeine hasn't hit me yet. The aroma is classic with all the nuttiness and full, rounded coffee smells coming from the grinder. I pulled mine after the first crack. It's delicious, smooth, low acid, and silky. I will be ordering this again.

Don't really care for it. It is high octane, but has too much robusta flavor. For caffeine it's fine, but for coffee flavor it's not great.

Wooh! Super strong and bitter for us! Tasted a little like cardboard and the good thing is we know not to get any more. Thanks for the opportunity to give feedback.

The High Octane is a rich and indulgent experience as a Full City roast without tasting burnt. My wife enjoys its low acidity, allowing the intricate flavors to shine through. Hints of dark chocolate, vanilla, and cinnamon as described in the notes are a treat. The heavy body adds a satisfying depth, complementing the bold, earthy flavors that leave a lasting impression. The blend's big caffeine jolt is perfect for me seeking an energizing boost before my morning road cycling ride.

Roasted to the very first audible crack of second crack. A great cup with just the right amount of caffeine jolt. It will be my morning go to.

I didn't have high hopes for this blend when roasting. The green smell during the drying phase was particularly strong. I took it just to the first crackles of second crack and the SR800 was pumping out more smoke than I've seen even from other beans going well into second crack. The smoke smell was more acrid and unpleasant as well. My 8 year old even commented on the smoke. I was surprised, however, after giving it two days to offgas. It wasn't unpleasant at all. I mean, it wasn't Onobeano's Latte or anything but certainly on par with decent store bought beans. I really can't say if I'd purchase again. I think of you're going the roast your own route, that flavor outweighs caffeine content.
