I've tested the GothRider® Gasoline™ coffee
If you ride long distances like me, you know how fatigue can strike at any time. Staying alert is essential when you’re on the road, especially as a motorcyclist.
For us, a split second of inattention or a quick sleepy nod, and the day can quickly take a turn for the worse (pun intended). That’s why, when my body tells me it’s time to take a break, I can curl up pretty much anywhere for a nap.
As a sleepyhead who falls asleep everywhere, but who loves to savour the open road, I immediately knew that GothRider® Gasoline™ was the perfect product for me.
Aside from the motorcycle-inspired badass branding featuring skulls and pinups (perfection!), it’s a roast that was custom-made for people who need a generous dose of energy before a long day of adventure and thrills. In fact, the company claims that this coffee, roasted in Quebec, has twice the caffeine content of the average coffee.
And what can I say about the smell… it’s comfort in a bag!
In terms of taste, I find this coffee to be quite versatile. I usually drink very bold coffee: my guests often make faces before emptying half of my sugar bowl into their cups. Since this a blend of beans specifically selected to avoid bitterness, I’m confident that the Gasoline™ blend will appeal to a wide variety of preferences.
Indeed, as you can see, it is a fairly light roast when compared to the Starbucks Verona blend:
My guests thank you, GothRider®!
Having tried this coffee with a French Press and using an Espresso machine, I have come to the conclusion that the latter is the best method to release the aromas of this coffee and to reveal its full potential. The crema is subtle but very pleasant.
What would make this product perfect would be for GothRider® Gasoline™ to have it certified as organic and fair trade coffee, to guarantee the consumer that the product has been created in full respect for the environment, while promoting healthy and fair conditions for farmers. Aside from this aspect of social responsibility, the product is worthy of a big thumbs up!
