Sometimes I get into trouble… and sometimes into big trouble.
Ok sorry for that.
But anyway, I went to Target one day and found Counter Culture Coffee and their Big Trouble roast, and decided to give it a go!

And in this article I’ll give you a full review of this coffee.
I had never heard of Counter Culture Coffee before, but when I smelled the beans through the little air opening in the bag I thought it was definitely worth a try.
Overall, I’d give Big Trouble 6.5 out of 10.
So read on to find out why and my full review, starting with the taste!
Here’s a full tasting of this roast.
The smell of the beans themselves in the bag was nutty, round, almost a floral hint to it.
The aroma of the brewed coffee was mostly caramel that I could pick up on.
On the taster’s notes it says that this coffee has notes of caramel, nutty and round.
I’d mostly agree with this.
It was a bit hard for me to notice nutty notes in this coffee, for me in the taste itself I noticed caramel and butter notes.
There’s a medium body in this roast, and the acidity is a low acidity but with slightly pungent, maybe a bit much.
And for the aftertaste/finish, I actually tasted a bit of molasses, which I enjoy.
In short, I’d say that the taste of this coffee is nice but it’s not the most balanced coffee ever.
The acidity is brings a nice roundness to the coffee in contrast to the tasting notes, but it still needs maybe something more, in my opinion.
I’ve said it before, I’ve said it before many times, I’m all about a well-balanced coffee.
I think maybe the most important thing about a coffee, particularly a good-tasting quality cup of joe, is that it should be well-balanced.
And what I mean is it’s nice when it has plenty of different notes in the flavor and a good overall profile.
With Big Trouble from Counter Culture Coffee, I’d say that it’s pretty well-balanced, but it’s not necessarily the greatest coffee I’ve ever tasted.
Some of the flavors that I notice are a bit muted when I taste it.
So overall, I can say it’s a very nice coffee with variety which is great, but overall it could maybe just use a little more shine.
Wrappin It Up
When it comes to a coffee with caramel or butter notes, this is certainly a fine coffee.
And I would also say it’s hard to go wrong with Big Trouble.
But if you wanted to check one out that I prefer over Bit Trouble, I could also recommend this one.
If you end up trying Big Trouble, I hope you really enjoy it!
This is a great coffee for someone in kind of a toffee mood, and you like a coffee that has some good tang as well.
