Island Joe's Coffee and the Giza Pyramids
"We wish we could travel with our coffee and espresso, as they seem to be on a world tour. Last week South Korea and Bagdad, then this week our E.S.E. Espresso Pods are on a journey to the land of the great pyramids" stated Joe Wells, co-founder and coffee roaster at Island Joes Coffee located in old town Key West, Florida, Wells continued, "It is really a wonderful feeling to us knowing the hard work we put into roasting our coffee is being enjoyed in so many parts of the world."
In deed, it is a known fact gourmet coffee and espresso connoisseurs will go to through many steps in order to enjoy a cup of proper roasted gourmet coffee and now, perhaps, after the reviews where released from Kenneth Davids at coffeereview.com, the world is learning more about the coffee roasting abilities of the family owned and operated coffee roasting company, located on the laid back island of Key West.
Island Joe's created their E.S.E. (easy serving) Espresso Pods from their already highly rated espresso blend 90 Mile Stretch Espresso, which was already being shipped all over the world, including Seattle, plus is offered at limited Publix, Whole Foods Markets, Navy Exchanges, Albertsons and just recently Winn Dixie. Plus Sysco Foods recently added Island Joes Espresso Pods for their customers. They are also in talks with supermarkets on the east coast.
With a request from coffeereview.com, IJS Coffee sent their pods to Berkely, California recently where some of the world's leading coffee experts review and rate coffee roasters from all over the world. Rating such companies as Starbuck, Green Mountain, illy and more, including Island Joe's.
In this espresso pod review, there where 16 coffee roasting companies from Italy, two from Brazil and two from the U.S., including IJS. The 90 Mile espresso pods rated 91 out of 100, which was the highest score during this review.
"Out rating such companies at illyCaffe, Jolly Cafe, Segafredo Zanetti, Lavazza, Lucaffe and Fazenda Aguas Claras, does not give us at better than you attitude, but actually makes us feel proud, but humble at the same time," Wells had to say, "I mean our company is rubbing shoulders with some of the greatest coffee roasters in the world, which even for us to be mentioned is a honor in our minds."
The review by Mr. Davids in a Blind Assessment went as follows "
Blind Assessment: Produced from an ESE pod on a FrancisFrancis! pod brewer. Sweet, juicy-impressioned fruit dominates in the aroma (papaya? cherry?) with a hints of fir and leather. Syrupy mouthfeel and great richness and depth of sensation in the small cup, with continued low-acid fruit and fresh-cut fir notes. Superb finish: long, deep. In two parts milk good presence and chocolate-toned fruit, though just a touch flat and woody." with the rating, again, being 91 out of 100 and the highest.
"Last week, we where saying to one another, while roasting, it was really a cool vision of our troops in Bagdad pulling a shot of our espresso and now, perhaps under the stars in Egpyt and the Great Pyramids." Wells said. "Anything is possible and dreams can come true, but let me assure you, it does take consistent hard work."
