Cuban coffee to be precise...Cubita. I love my strong coffee, the stronger and blacker the better. So has anyone tried Cubita? Found it whilst browsing round a cigar merchants site and am curious about it; especially at the price compared to the price of coffee from Asda!

Ajay sells it in store so I suspect it is not rubbish but Monkey66 is your man, he is a coffee FASCIST! I thought I was anal about coffee but Monkey66 is just a walking encyclopedia.

i had a bag of the instant version..... its definately not the best coffee ive ever had - i would like to try the proper version before i pass any judgment.

I thought about buying some, it would be good someone in here to clear it out, which one is good which one is not :smile:

I've had some, it's nice, not amazing, but I didn't find it particularly strong.

May have to give it a go then! Will need a decent coffee machine though :lol:

Yes, i remember i had a nice one a year ago , with timer and alarm clock
you are setting up the alarm for 0800 and 5 mins before that the machine is making you nice coffee and its hot and smelling good when its time to wake you up!

I will definitely get some cuban to try out

Im not very keen on cubita, i find its more hickory based and not as nice as some fresh or perculated coffees out there, one of my favs is a german coffee (i think its german) called Konig

I've bought a few bags of it and only discovered it on my online cigar merchants site. It's become my favourite coffee and it really compliments a cigar, just my opinion I am no way a coffee expert though, more of a tea man :biggrin1:
