"KEEP CALM AND SCARY ON" THIS HAUNTING SEASON WITH A DEADLY DARK ROAST AND SPOOKY GINGERBREAD
October 28th, 2020
When we're caught up in the spirit of the Halloween season, a dark and delicious coffee moment I like to enjoy is this:
Hell's Fury Ultra Dark Roast coffee by
Deadly Grounds paired with homemade
According to the Deadly Grounds website, this coffee is a smooth and beautifully balanced expresso blend from Honduras, Brazil and Mexico. It is richly dark with bold and bitter notes, exactly how I like my coffee.
The recommendation for brewing a strong and deadly cup is to use 2 level tablespoons of ground coffee per 1 cup (250ml) of water, and I find this to be quite right for the standard coffee drinker (you can always tweak these measurements to customize your brew to your desired strength). Since I prefer a stronger brew, I like to do 2 level tablespoons per 6 fl oz (3/4 cup or 150ml, to make measuring in ml easier). With a dash of cream to my cup of Hell's Fury alongside fresh gingerbread, this has become my soothing "go to" moment for one of those cold autumn afternoons.
I discovered this fun, little horror coffee company during my 2016 visit to Fan Expo Canada in Toronto, Ontario, while killing a few minutes before our photo-op with The Walking Dead cast. The Deadly Grounds booth were giving out brewed samples of their coffee and when I tried one of their roasts, wow, I was sold. Not only was the coffee delicious, but I was attracted to their unique packaging and marketing approach to making gourmet coffee horrifically fun.
Being a coffee addict and adventurer, I absolutely enjoy trying different brands of coffee. My preference is a plain dark roast blend but for fun I also like to try those flavoured ones too, every now and then. Deadly Grounds has a fun variety of flavoured coffees and teas available for sale online across Canada and I'm looking forward to try them. I hope you'll stick around and join me as I get a little fun and "deadly" on my future coffee adventures.
