Michael Bunker’s own select blend of Ethiopian Mokamba and Indonesian Java beans, roasted dark by hand to perfection.
Full body, it’s retained some acidity and hasn’t lost the the origin flavors. Gentle earthiness, dark cocoa and a sweet subtle malty component.
Not a cheap coffee, but well worth it for coffee connoisseurs.
“Why is Bunker Nation so much more expensive than, say, the big Veteran’s coffee brand, or some other private label coffees?”
Listen, this isn’t a mass produced coffee manufactured by a huge global company. Nor is it a mass produced coffee private labeled for entrepreneurs who want branded coffee as part of their product line.
I have no problem with those products and I understand why they do what they do. But if you know Michael Bunker, and if you have ever tasted any of his hand made products, you will know that we do not compare apples and oranges. Michael Bunker bacon is made in tiny batches, by hand, in a stone smokehouse built by hand. The bacon is made using ancient techniques and without any modern industrial or commercial equipment. It is made exactly like bacon was made 150 years ago.
Guess what, the Bunker Nation Coffee is the same way.
It is not a mass manufactured Columbian or Costa Rican Coffee just private labeled for an entrepreneur. It is not a mass manufactured product sold only by the “roasting” or “grind” signification. In other words, it just doesn’t say “House Blend” or “Espresso Grind” or “French Roast.” Our beans are hand selected. Chosen by Michael Bunker specifically to fit a taste profile and quality level he demands. It is hand roasted exactly like it was roasted before the modern mass packaging days.
It isn’t just made in small batches. It is made in TINY batches by a guy – not a company.
It is made specifically to Michael Bunker’s specifications, and to the quality level that truly identifies it as ARTISAN – a word that seems to have lost its meaning when it became an advertising slogan.
If you’ve ever tried Bunker Bacon, Bunker Mesquite Coffee, or any other Michael Bunker products, you already know.
It is more expensive, but that’s just the way it is.
It’s expensive to make coffee like this and ship it to you!
