I was wondering what happened to Florida reader and coffee roaster David after Hurricane Ian. He found his own way of letting me know he’s okay, shipping me unannounced his Hurricane Category 5 blend. Oh, Florida Man.
You may recall Legal Insurrection reader David, the Florida Coffee Man who runs King Harv’s Imperial Coffees, a family business in Florida. King Harv’s specializes in exotic and rare coffees.
In June 2018, I wrote about him, All Hail the King Harv’s Imperial Coffees:
It was so good, my kids decided to do something nice for me, and took out a year-long monthly subscription, King Harv’s Imperial Coffees does it again.
I have been known to be drink $4 Ithaca lattes, if visiting Legal Insurrection readers pay.
So when reader David threw a pity party for me after Amazon dumped us, and offered to send me some coffee from his family business, I was like: If you insist.
Wow, he didn’t just send me coffee, he sent me the mother lode….
The Ethiopian Limu coffee was fantastic.
I generally prefer lighter roasts, since most dark roasts are bitter and harsh. The Ethiopian Limu, however, was a dark roast that was not the least bit bitter.

Oh, Florida Man has a sense of humor. “Hurricane Category 5” blend, get it?
His website has this announcement:
HURRICANE IAN UPDATE
WE ARE OPEN! Our Apopka FL coffee roasting facility has power, propane, and a huge staff (Zach) ready to roast and ship your order!
How was the coffee? I’ll let you know when the house stops shaking. (Akchually, like all his dark roasts, it was excellent, not the least bit harsh or bitter.)
Florida Man does it again.
