Hello Boss Coffee

Posted in 4.5 Wasabi Pea Rating, Beverage, Coffee, Sweet at 11:27 pm by TheMan


So, after a long night of poking at a troublesome computer how do I wake up?



In this case, a hefty little can with a nifty logo. There’s a cheery chapeau’d chum, all spiffily done up with cap, suspenders and tie, grinning and looking over at someone to his right. Floating up at the top of the can is the cherry greeting “Hello Boss”. Shaking it gently produces a pleasant “Dook, dook, dook” sound.

It’s one of the best darn cans of coffee I’ve ever had. This stuff makes the bottled Starbucks stuff taste like a bottle of creamed chemicals. Every flavor of Hello Boss tastes exactly like what it’s called. Espresso, cappucino, or mocha, it all tastes barrista fresh without nasty overtones or aftertaste. The ingredient list is simple. Water, coffee, sugar, milk powder. No artificial flavors, no additives, no preservatives. It lists a two year pending expiration date on the bottom of the can.


It also lists that the beverage contains “coffeine” over 200ppm.

The can shape is really quite nifty too. Wide at the top, narrow near the bottom, slightly ridged sides. Very comfy to hold, but a bit annoying to line up on shelves. In fact, the only slight point deduction from this snack is can related. The cans are vacuum packed, so getting the pop top open can be a bit of a challenge for the fingertips. I strongly suggest you use tools – slide a car key underneath it or something. Half a point off for that, I’m afraid.

Apart from that one minor glitch, it’s tasty, refreshing and attractively packaged. Go find a couple cans and enjoy.
I give it a Rating of 4.5 out of 5 tasty, refreshing, caffinated Wasabi Peas.
