FTO Blue Thunder Blend is a rich, full bodied cup with smokey and sweet tones, resulting from a combination of French Roast cut with Sumatra Blue Lintong.
This blend stirred some vivid reactions at our house. For my wife, the tasty overtones of sweet tobacco reminded her of passing by the old cigar shop (complete with a carved Native American statue out front) as a kid. My first thought after drinking it was, "This is the kind of coffee Paul Bunyan would drink!". It's hardy, direct, and sure of itself enough for a slight flair of salted caramel flavor. It may be "complex" as the packaging says, but this brew is also highly drinkable. I love it with eggs, toast, and bacon, a breakfast fit for -- who else? -- a lumberjack.
I love coffee and make it my quest to find the best of the best and this made the list! I like a full bodied coffee but many can stand your hair up straight or leave an acidic aftertaste that will curl your tongue. Not Blue Thunder. It’s so smooth and tasty I need no cream and sugar. I was a little apprehensive of it being a dark roast with smokey tones but first sip I was in love. Blue Thunder will always be on my coffee shelf.
I've tried quite a few of the Klatch roasts, and Blue Thunder is by far my favorite. I am a dark roast person, and this dark roast did not disappoint. I wasn't totally sure about it for the first few sips, honestly. But as I kept drinking, it got better and better. It starts a bit smokey and then has the slightest fruity aftertaste. Mhmm, perfect! Definitely adding this one to my subscription!
