Coffee Shop of Horrors is Alive! It’s ALIVE!

Zombie Dirt espresso from Coffee Shop of Horrors

We’ve been fans of Coffee Shop of Horrors for years. We make it a point to stop by their booth every year at DragonCon and stock up on the horror-themed java goodness. However, Ed over at The Unique Geek sounded the alarm when it looked like their website was in a state of flux, not unlike a Lemarchand box being reconfigured.

Turns out that it soon was twisted about the right way, and when we checked in with The Shop (by that we mean, the aforementioned Coffee Shop–not the government organization that employs assassins like George C. Scott…but…that would be really fucking cool if it was secretly one and the same) we were told that they’ve recently changed hands, revamped their website and have changed geographic locations. They do indeed have an online presence only (unless you catch them at a show–which I urge you to do) and have eleven variations currently up for sale with more to come.

From what they have up at the moment, I can personally recommend the Zombie Dirt espresso (pictured) or the Burial Grounds. Others over at The Unique Geek swear by the Shock-o-Rama, which albeit highly caffeinated was a bit too caramelly last time I tried it. And for me, that’s saying something. I strongly hint (nay, I blatantly suggest!) that they release a non-flavored highly caffeinated brew. They could even call it “Aim For The Head,” which says it all, really.

Go give them love. And tell em we said hi, would you?

    There is a claim on their web site that the highly caffeinated version is Netherworld Haunted House.
    Add to the shopping list.

    Oh hell yes! Good catch, chief!

    Actually, Reanimator, Netherworld, and Shock-O-Rama are all extra caffeinated. The new blends of these varieties use coffee beans that have a naturally higher caffeine content instead of using an artificial caffeine additive.

    And don’t knock the Shock-O-Rama – it’s the house favorite. :)

    Now, now. Nobody’s knocking anything. It’s just a matter of preference on my part. :)

    I got my bag of Netherworld on Saturday and tried it out this morning. After having only three hours of sleep last night, Netherworld did the trick.
    *Is that a commercial waiting to happen?*

    Too late! The commercial’s already happened! Bravo!

    Yep, that’s kind of the point of it. Glad to see it did its job!
