Hell's Kitchen branded Coffee?

Has anybody else seen this? We saw a bunch of bags of it at our local T.J. Maxx / Marshall's store this week. A google search only came up with 1 reference about it, apparently they started selling it in October 2012. I've never heard anything about it, but yeah we bought a bag. Haven't tried it yet, it comes in 4 types - Viennese Roast, Three Star (hubby asked out of how many 5? - and yet he bought this one), Executive Chef's and Hell's Roast. The discount store had 3 of the 4, I think it was Hell's Roast they didn't have, which implies to me it was the better seller.

Will report back once I have time to brew some, but I wondered if anybody else had tried it and what they thought.

    Not risotto or scallops?

      Yep, Coffee. And a quick check of the company that was supposed to be the roaster and thus selling it on its website turned up something interesting. A complete and total lack of information about it - not for sale, not mentioned, nothing.

      Looks like its something that died pretty quickly, which explains why the bags were at the discount store. Not that we don't get lovely stuff there all the time (Nielsen-Massey Vanilla comes to mind).
