I have had a fascination with planes since I was a child and at one point in my life had made plans to become a pilot……and then I got glasses. I guess it was the wow factor of how planes even get off the ground that drew me in as a young kid; if anyone wants to have that same wow factor, go to youtube and type in Antonov An-225 tell me how that thing even gets off the ground! (Yes I know the physics behind how planes get off the ground so save the google links to wiki folks)
On to the coffee, we have had this K-cup since we got our machine and because of it’s name and marketing it is suppose to be a pick me up; so I was waiting for a day where I needed an extra boost.
Those of you that do not know I drink my coffee black as I like the taste, not sure why people feel the need to put sugar or cream or milk; I mean if you enjoyed the taste of coffee why toss anything in it?
Jet Fuel must have got it’s name from someone who was changing a planes oil and thought why don’t I just toss this in a coffee cup. Now to say Jet Fuel is a dark roast is an understatement, this is black as it gets for coffee, I am a fan of strong coffees but Jet Fuel tries to be the strongest one on the block but lacks in much flavor. This K-cup comes off tasting like the beans were extremely burnt when they roasted them. As for the smell it lacked that crisp aroma that I have grown to love, it smelled like a cross between burnt tires and the Toronto Maple Leafs last 5 years worth of draft picks.
I sit here laughing a bit that my first K-cup review was not a positive one as most have been great cups of coffee, maybe it’s the mood I am in as I have had a long day of travel or that for some strange reason I had high hopes that the coffee with a cool jet on it was going to top my charts.
For those looking to keep track with my ranking system, it is simple I keep all the coffee’s in a Blackberry list and again rank them from 1-10; Jet Fuel (made by Coffee People) for having a burnt taste and no real extra pick up I rated this a 3 out of 10.
