A very, very long time ago (2003) we came up with the idea of roasting coffee, and selling it online. A very important part of selling coffee online at that time (and still very much so today) was to have a range of blends. One of the blends we felt we needed was a breakfast, high caffeine, unsubtle, in your face, big old wake-up blend. Not a sipping coffee, but a big, huge gulper. That blend was called 'Breakfast Bomb'.

Fast forward nine years and this coffee has remained a very important part of our line-up, a very popular blend. In fact, very little has changed with it over the years. Now it is time to revamp it and bring it up to a modern-day standard, as we have with all our other blends that make us so happy and that we are proud to bring to you.

Breakfast Bomb works well in espresso or filter (for my taste) and is a pick me up. The blend for many years consisted of 80% Sumatra and 20% Robusta. That was it. We swapped the original Robusta as we went along for the very best one we had at that time but it otherwise stayed pretty much the same.

There is a reason that it has not really changed much, it kind of works. 'Indos' I tend to find have a far bigger effect on me personally and they give the blend more of a kick.

So, this is our modern-day take on an old classic. In the cup it's overtly big, with huge mouthfeel, it is lairy and full of caffeine. A real Breakfast Bomb.
