Jelk’s Coffee Tasting

photo of brewed Jelk's CoffeeAfter I reviewed Joffrey’s Coffee a few weeks back, I was contacted by the folks at Jelk’s Coffee who offered me a sample of their coffee. As my demand for coffee has not changed, and I am always up for trying new things, I took them up on their offer.

As I mentioned I like stronger coffees, they sent me a whole pound of their Louisiana Blend. It is described on their Web site as their “house blend with a twist-darker roasted so this spicy tasting beverage is a true connoisseurs’ coffee.” As I would never say I have a delicate palate (ask my wife) a coffee has to be over the top with flavor for me to consider it spicy. So I put it to the test, and I had enough of the pre-ground coffee to load up my Cuisinart Grind and Brew for a week.

Verdict – I liked it. It had a bold taste but overly strong or bitter. It has a smooth finish and no aftertaste, a bad byproduct of some of the stronger coffees I have had. It also has sufficient caffeine and kept me running through the week!

Jelk’s has a whole line of traditional roasts and flavored coffees, as well as Southern-style sauces and all kinds of food products and accessories. Thanks to the folks at Jelk’s for a week of tasty fuel!
