In our continuous search for some of the best and rarest coffees on the planet, we recently had a chance to try some of Spirit Animal's Coffee most popular offerings. They sent us their coffee in exchange for an unbiased and honest assessment of their coffee. The following Spirit Animal Coffee review will cover everything you need to know to determine whether this specialty coffee is worth your hard earned coffee dollars.
Spirit Animal Coffee is a distinctly high-end specialty coffee company focused on delivering the freshest and highest quality bag of coffee directly to your doorstep.
The coffee is sourced directly from Honduras and they roast and package the beans themselves. Unlike most coffees that use sea freight to transport the beans to you, Spirit Animal Coffee transports the premium beans by air freight from Honduras directly to your doorstep.
The idea behind this is that the beans are much fresher and don’t lose their taste and flavor while deteriorating in cargo shipments. They estimate that the usual coffee route takes weeks before it reaches the consumer where theirs takes a mere 2-hour flight.
Spirit Animal Coffee delivers a premium coffee experience and appeals to the true coffee connoisseur. The company has a few different blends of premium coffee and I had the opportunity to review their Catuai/Bourbon blend.
The coffee arrived at my doorstep and I was amazed at the packaging of the coffee. The coffee came in a elegantly designed wooden box with the Spirit Animal Coffee logo on the outside of it. When I opened up the wooden box, the bag of coffee was wrapped in burlap and elegantly tied with some string. The impressive presentation was unlike any other coffee I have ever had before – I was immediately excited to try my first cup.
Spirit Animal Coffee Review: Tasting Notes
The bag of coffee was full of aromatic whole beans just waiting to be ground. I pulled out my coffee grinder, prepared my French press, and began to brew my first cup of Spirit Animal Coffee.
I poured my first cup and began to take a sip.
Immediately I was blown away by the smoothness of the coffee. It is probably the smoothest cup of coffee I have ever tasted and carries flavor throughout the experience.
I can definitely see why the coffee scored such a high score of 90.5 points on the coffee quality scale as established by the Specialty Coffee Association (SCA).
The coffee was also very sweet. It had a fruitiness to it that was very appealing. The blend was of a medium roast and had a unique flavor profile. The cup had deep chocolate undertones and the entire cup of coffee was bursting with flavor. It was very easy to drink and created a very enjoyable coffee drinking experience.
Over the next couple days, I enjoyed more cups of this wonderful coffee and had similar positive experiences. Consistency of flavor and roast is something that's often overlooked by even some of the best coffee brands out there. Spirit Animal Coffee clearly invests money, time, and effort into the quality control of their coffee.
One thing that really stands out about Spirit Animal Coffee is how much it elevates the coffee drinking experience. From the packaging, to the coffee itself, the experience that Spirit Animal Coffee creates is second to none.
It is truly a premier coffee experience that any coffee connoisseur should experience for themselves. This coffee makes the perfect gift for any coffee lover in your life and also makes a great gift to yourself. Being that this is some of the highest quality coffee available, the coffee isn't cheap. Nor should it be given the luxuriously rich experience it offers. If you subscribe to a subscription, the coffee becomes significantly more affordable.
In concluding this Spirit Animal Coffee review, I would definitely recommend Spirit Animal Coffee. The experience is what makes this cup of coffee so good and you can’t duplicate what Spirit Animal Coffee is doing. The coffee tastes great, and you feel like you are brewing something special when you open the bag. If you are a true coffee lover, you must try Spirit Animal Coffee.
