Wake The Fu*k Up Coffee Review:
Alright I normally strictly stick to Energy Drinks and Shots but every once in awhile I will vary and do a Coffee Review. Now they are few and far between but some argue that coffee is really the first mainstream energy drink. Couple that with the name of Wake the Fu*k Up Coffee and their funny slogans ("Sleep is for the Dead" and "This is clearly a better option than the Caffeine IV Drip" and you have what should be an interesting review. A little background perhaps... Wake the Fu*K Up Coffee was founded by a group of Creative and gutsy entrepreneurs with backgrounds in the Food, and Beverage Industry and Media. The coffee comes in a normal and a censored version (keeps the f bomb out of the packaging in case you have children or just not a fan of the f bomb). They currently come in one pound packs for $10.
Wake The Fu*k Up Coffee Review: Taste
So I am far from a coffee guru, but I do like to have a morning cup of coffee on occasion. When I do have this coffee I don't add sugar, cream, cinnamon or any of that other girly crap. I'll take my coffee black please... Anyways, the coffee beans seem rich and full and give you a dark blend, but the taste seems on par with most mass market middle end coffee blends (Think Folgers / Hills Brothers) you get in the supermarket. Anyways, the majority of the people probably are not buying this for the taste, but for the nice packaging. Which brings us to the question... Is this a novelty or is this the real deal? To me if they meet the claims of being an "extra strong" coffee than Wake The Fu*k Up Coffee may go above and beyond a novelty. So let's move on to the kick review. Taste Rating - Average (Energy Drink/Shot Rating Does Not Really Apply)
Wake The Fu*k Up Coffee Review: Kick
So is this an extra strong coffee? How does it compare to normal coffee or even energy drink or shots for that matter? Again not being a coffee guru and not having a ton of other coffee's to compare to (so yeah it's my opinion), I feel that Wake the Fu*k Up delivered a more than substantial kick. After two cups of coffee I was wide awake and alert at 6 a.m. I was a tad more spry that when drinking my normal cups of coffee (Im not even brand loyal), but I wasn't bouncing off the walls. Regardless it did give me more than the wake up I was looking for... so yes, it packed more of punch than your typical cup of coffee. In terms of comparing it to an energy drink, I think two cups of Wake The Fu*k Up would be about as strong as a 16 Ounce Monster Energy Drink. Kick Rating - 8.5
Wake The Fu*k Up Coffee Review: Final Judgment
Yeah it is stronger than your typical cup of coffee, but the price is a tad higher as well. I don't believe this is purely a novelty product as it does what it is told... However, the Gift Set they sell on their website for $30 would be perfect for someone who loves coffee and has a sense of humor. The WTFU Coffee Mug is a nice touch. So for a decent taste and an above average kick WTFU gets a final judgment rating of 8.0.
