Koffee Kult has a pretty big underground following.
I guess what I’m trying to say is that it basically has kind of a cult following.
Jokes aside, it’s a fairly well-known coffee company.
And they have funny phrases on the coffee bag about “becoming one of them”. I like when people are clever.

After seeing it quite a few times online I knew it was time to drink the kool-aid… I mean coffee. They have a number of flavors that sounded good but for my first time I just went with the “dark roast”.
I mean, if you know me, you know I love dark roast coffee.
I’d give this koffee a 7 out of 10. It’s definitely got a nice flavor, and it’s good, although I was maybe looking for a little bit more… oomph.
Here’s why I rated it 7 out of 10.
This coffee was somehow a bit difficult to put my finger on.
I love coffee that’s really well-balanced. This coffee is kind of balanced, but the flavor profile isn’t very big.
The aroma is smoky and sweet, kind of winey.
It’s a light bodied coffee. The taste is very similar to the aroma, sweet, smoky, and winey! It has a slightly acidic aftertaste but it’s kind of like plumb or wine. It’s an interesting mix of flavors!
But at the same time it’s pretty straight forward.
There are different flavor notes in this coffee definitely, but it’s almost pungent somehow. It’s not quite pungent or too acidic, but even though it’s a dark roast the acidity is noticeable.
We could say it’s got some pizazz to it!
What Coffee Maker Does It Best?
Well normally I’m pretty opiniated about which coffee maker is best with a certain coffee.
And often times it’s AeroPress!
But with Koffee Kult’s dark roast, I’m not sure that I could decide on the best way to brew it.
Although, it was definitely good with the Hario V60.
A bold, smoky coffee can be really nice in a V60.
But of course you can always experiment and find out what’s best for you!
This seemed to be one of those coffees where you have to brew it really strong with AeroPress for more flavors to come out. It may be difficult to explain, but some coffee is like that.
AeroPress is a great brewing method to get great flavor from a coffee, but some coffees may just not be the best quality beans (or some other reason), and you need to brew the coffee really strong to get the full flavor effect.
Wrapping It Up
While I wouldn’t say this is the best coffee I’ve ever had or anything, I don’t really have much to complain about.
It’s sort of a middle of the road dark roast, in my opinion.
In that sense, it’s kind of similar to Ricks Roasters “Four Horsemen” coffee, which I reviewed a bit back. Funny enough, I also called Four Horsemen straight forward.
But I do like the taste of Koffee Kult’s Dark Roast better than Four Horsemen.
Anyway, this is a pretty good coffee.
If you want a bold, smoky, and slightly sweet coffee with not too much else, this will be a great coffee for you!
I may give another one of Koffee Kult’s coffees a try, but that will be a little way off maybe.
I hope you found this review helpful, coffee cheers!
