I got the opportunity to review Black Rifle Coffee Company’s Caffeinated As F*** and boy howdy, does this cup o’ Joe live up to the name.
You should know, I am no coffee snob. I drink it everyday. I don’t, however, wear a beanie unless I’m hunting. I don’t have box frame glasses and I never wear scarves. I am not a hipster. I’m a normal dude that happens to drink a lot of coffee.
I start my day by brewing coffee into my blender cup filled with ice, I add some protein powder and blend. I’ve done this for a long time and love the way it starts my day. I usually follow it with two tall cups of coffee (either black or with a little sugar-free creamer) in the morning. Sometimes, I replace my pre-workout with coffee and I often enjoy a cup of coffee while hanging out with my good buddies.
The He-Man Latte
Plugging CAF Into My Routine:
Let’s start with my morning routine. I usually blend my protein with some form of a breakfast blend coffee. Recently, I have started to notice a chemical type taste to my He-Man Latte and have not enjoyed it as much. The first day that I blended in BRCC’s CAF, I noticed a big difference. HUGE difference. First off, the taste. My shake tastes like coffee again, strong coffee with a chocolate creamer. The bigger change came about ten minutes after I chugged down my shake. I was ready to park my truck on the side of the road and run to work. It’s a good thing that I wasn’t listening to “Eye of the Tiger” at the same time or I would’ve run to work with my truck on my shoulder. This stuff has punch. It’s engineered that way. The claim is that it has twice the caffeine of a regular cup of coffee and I believe every word of it. It’s strong enough that they put a disclaimer on the bag and website that it, literally, may KILL you.
“The flavor is rich all the way through with no hint of bitterness.”
Towards the end of the morning, I fill my cup with this liquid anger. I throw in a splash of creamer and discover quickly that I don’t need it. The next cup, I go without. This amped up java does not come off like it’s all jacked up. The first un-doctored taste is smooth. Even for a medium roast coffee. The flavor is rich all the way through with no hint of bitterness. This is really good coffee.

Try Adding Coffee To Your Workout.
It serves as a great pre-workout too. Coffee burns off cleanly during a workout and this one fits that bill with a little extra punchiness to boot. When I say “a little extra punchiness” I mean the way that John Wayne is “a little manly”. I really enjoy the boost offered by this coffee and that you don’t have to sacrifice flavor for it.
“Everyone that I talk to who has tried this stuff loves it as well.”
Last night, I shot bows with my buddy, we drank a couple of beers and ate some elk bratwurst. After dinner, we started planning an upcoming backpacking trip and brewed a pot of CAF coffee. After a very short while our conversation turned to how good the coffee was. He commented on how impressed he was at the great taste of the roast while having the increased caffeine. Everyone that I talk to who has tried this stuff loves it as well. I should also mentioned that I was unable to fall asleep last night until about three o’clock this morning. Keep in mind, I was in bed at one. I just laid there thinking “that’s weird, the lights are off, but I can still see everything.” Yeah, it’s caffeinated.
Black Rifle Coffee Company describes this particular roast as follows:
“This is what happens when you turn the mad scientists loose in the Coffee Lab with Central American milds. The only blend of coffee worthy of its name, designed for the coffee head who needs to pull out all the stops. This contains twice as much caffeine as an average cup of coffee.”
Start to finish this coffee is impressive. From the sleek looking matte black bag it comes in, ornamented with silver lettering and firearms down to the lack of a bitter after taste. This coffee is tops. This veteran owned company also donates a part of their proceeds to supporting the second amendment as well as first responder and veteran organizations. If you peruse the videos produced by the folks over at Black Rifle Coffee Company, they’re hilarious. The coffee that they make, though, is no joke.
