FUEL OF VICTORY
Tasting Notes: Chocolate, Caramel & Molasses
Region: Desa Kerawat, Red Badger
The Fuel of Victory... truly became the "fuel" of victory during WWII. Head on over to the story tab to see more about the story behind the label on this tasty dark roast.
Coming from Northern Sumatra, this coffee is acclaimed for it's complex cup character that results largely from the process known as wet hulling. When combined with a darker roasted profile you enhance some of the rich dark chocolate, caramel and molasses notes. Because we have direct contact with the growers through our importer, we are assured they receive a fair wage and ongoing agricultural education.

Arriving on your doorstep at the PEAK of Flavor!
Fuel of Victory came about when we discovered an historic WWII poster showing the Fruits of Victory. In true Retro Warrior fashion, we decided to do some digging. Instead of the canning jar that she originally held in her hand with fruits and vegetables sprawled out before her we decided it was appropriate to give her coffee! One particular item of interest is the can of George Washington Instant Coffee we placed in her hand. Although our coffee is not "instant coffee", we enjoyed the bit of history this can of coffee provided. We learned that a gentleman by the name of George Washington (not the president) formulated a way to make instant coffee. This coffee was distributed to American soldiers who were very happy to have the ability to make coffee while fighting for victory. So in essence... we like to believe that coffee was indeed the Fuel of Victory.
Fuel of Victory has a rich, earthy flavor. This coffee works well for just about any application, espresso, pour-over, French Press, drip, AeroPress... we've done it all. We also love it as a cold brew! We offer a course ground option which can be used for either cold brew or French Press; and recommend Alto Cold Brew filters when brewing cold brew!
