This is the Nerve Tonic Espresso brought to you by Anodyne Coffee Roasting Co. This espresso blend has been created especially for pairing with milk. When you want a latte, you should taste the espresso punching through, and that’s what Nerve Tonic will do for you. This coffee is balanced with a mix of chocolate, caramel and nutty notes.
This coffee has a much weaker body compared to others in our collections and has more lemony acidity than we like. It’s ok, but not great for our tastes.
Didn’t like it. Tasted like old coffee
Very strong, excellent morning cup.
This makes a perfect at-home expresso drink! I love it!
Bland, unexciting. Really lacked depth or anything notable. If I let it steep a really long time it was okay. Maybe aero press isn’t the best way to brew
Very good flavor, love the nuttiness and just the right amount of acidity (not much :)). I don't drink espressos hardly at all with milk, so it being 'specially prepared for enjoying with milk' didn't resonate with me, so that's my main reason for voting 4 stars vs. 5.
I LOVE this one. It's bold and the chocolate is pronounced, but the nutty undertones back it up nicely. I also taste very subtle earthy/vegetable notes which I like a lot!
Liked this blend, nice and smooth
The chocolate and nutty notes are at the forefront of this brew, though, not overwhelming as in most cases. subtle and enjoyable.
Very light and fluffy coffee, made it difficult to dial in for espresso. Came out sour no matter what I did, ended up making it in the french press. Very delicious in the press with the chocolate and caramel really coming through.
Loved this coffee as a 'base' espresso. Also felt it would be a great beginner espresso as no matter the recipe you can't seem to mess this one up to much. Not a 5 star as I felt it could have been blended with a natural Ethiopian or floral forward Central American to add more acidity or sweetness to the shot. Hope this helps :)
I like it because it's not too strong.
Not too acidic. Would have liked a stronger chocolate taste. Good overall. Drinkable. Halfway sippable. A nice appetizer.
Very good. Liked that it wasn't to acidic.
I liked the coffee, it was very smooth, not too acidic. Like the flavor!!
Love the variances in the taste profile of this coffee - it offers a great round cup. I am preparing this in a French press.
Great aroma and flavor
The description sounds EXACTLY like what I would want, since chocolate, carmel and nutty sounds yummy to me, and I do only make/drink lattes. Overall I'd say I was a little underwhelmed. It's good, not great I guess. For my next coffee I think I'm looking for something more punchy and exciting.
Too light. Not enough flavor. Probably like light to medium better
Excellent espresso! Loved the flavor, it didn't hide in the milk of a latte, it definitely "punched through."
This coffee seemed simple and bland. I didn't like it.
Delicate little roast. Mistakes in pulling shots are noticible. A bit to light for me, but once I got in the range the nutty profile showed itself when I wasn't even paying attention. Light, more like milk chocolate, rather than dark. Would have liked a more deeper chocolate flavor.
Enjoyed the first coffee selected.
The coffee is very good but for my next shipments, I have upgraded my preferences from deluxe to exclusive and from medium roast to light roast.
I am looking for lighter colored coffees packed with delicious flavor that aren't bitter (so I can drink without adding brown sugar) since I am trying to wean myself off sugar in my coffee.
I like it generally, but two downsides for me have been a) a little weak on the flavor and aroma b) it tastes a little more sour than i was hoping. not bitter - sour
Beautifully complex; shines nicely through the milk of a latte. The smell is outstanding.
Nice flavor with hot milk latte as suggested. Nice nutty chocolate notes. Works well with ice cold dark chocolate almond milk. Straight shot didn't do much for me, better with milk. Brewed with Barista Express BES870XL, grind size: 6, grind amount: -1
This just trumped our previously favorite espresso. The flavor is so smooth and full it almost has a nitro quality to it. The taste was so clean I preferred it without sweetner. Held its qualities as both hot and iced latte. Great first impression w misto box.
I can definitely taste the "punch" of these beans even under the potentially overpowering steamed milk. Pretty good-tasting shots by themselves, too.
Good tasting but I felt like the end product was very thin which made my latte taste less creamy. I also noticed after brewed the espresso was more clear than the typical espresso brands I use.
I really enjoyed the flavor, super tasty! It just felt a little weak to me .. I brewed it pretty strong but it doest have the kick I sometimes want. Over all though I loved the taste. Its one I definitely still want on my shelf but I just might need something else for the am fog.
With A Name Like Nerve Tonic You Think It Would Pack A Punch But This Coffee Did None Of That It Fell Flat I Love Strong Bold Coffee Espresso And This Was Just Like Brown Water Was Super Bummed The Packaging Was Cool
Outstanding for espresso
I'm still dialing in the grind settings on my new grinder. As an espresso shot it's good, but this coffee is a little weaker in coffee flavor than I'd prefer when used in a latte/cappuccino. As mentioned above, this might be due to my grind settings, so I'll review again if it gets better.
Update: I've dialed in the grind, and feel that this coffee is a bit underwhelming. It's hard to get the flavor when adding steamed milk to a single shot. I also feel like I need more coffee than normal to get a decent crema. I don't have this issue with other beans. Overall, it's an ok roast if a little weak for my tastes.
Not as bold and strong as one would expect as reading the bag description. It is recommended that you pair with milk, however, I did not feel that the espresso punched through.
Tastes as smooth as it smells. Not too heavy of a mouthfeel and has a pleasant lingering taste.
I liked this coffee quite a bit. It produced a tasty, balanced cold brew, and true to it's claim, paired well with a little bit of milk. I enjoyed the chocolatey flavors, but didn't notice the citrus notes... that's likely due to my beginner's coffee palate, though.
Nice sturdy strength, nutty, earthy, almost peanut butter-y.
I would love to try this with an espresso machine, but all I have is my aeropress. Tried it with evaporated milk, almond milk, and an almond/coconut blend.
Outstanding coffee!! Great body without being overbearing, a deep nutty rich taste with a great smooth finish. I have had it black and with milk, prepared with a french press and chemex. All have been an exceptional cup of coffee with substance and body.
Very good in Iced Vanilla Latte - especially the first sip!
18g @ 201 F, 30 seconds. 35g yield. Surprisingly balanced and mild. For a coffee that bills itself as "punching through" Nerve Tonic is not harsh, bitter, or overly bold. I was expecting roasty, dark chocolate flavors with stone fruits but instead got a pleasant balance between milk chocolate and citrus. Neither flavor dominates. This was very easy to enjoy, even without milk.
This one was nice. It is a good starter one, and a good one to use with flavoured additives for the holidays.
I enjoyed this espresso! Not the best but a solid coffee. I wish I had an espresso machine to truly get the best flavor out of it but still tasted great out of my french press. Great espresso for the price from a company I enjoy and has good quality!
Delicious!! The taste of the espresso really punches through in a latte. Very nice. These have been some of the most flavorful lattes I have ever made using this blend.
