Strong Coffee Bean Blend

I am on a mission to find the strongest coffee blend from Van Houtte coffee which indeed is cheap but easily attainable at the local grocer when I run out and don't have time to get to Union or La Vieille Europe. Any suggestions?

  1. try using a blend you're already familiar with and use a bit more coffee per cup, that should up the brew strength. You can also try grinding a little bit finer or stirring and agitating a bit more (if possible). Good luck!

    1. Hello this picture should help you and I also have a .xls file with all the description of each blend if you want.

      1. By strongest do you mean in flavour or in caffeine content? Remember that the lighter the roast, the greater the caffeine.
