When you go to the website and pull up a description for Café Royale, here is what you will find.
“A coffee blend with hints of caramel, French vanilla, and a touch of cinnamon. This is the juice kings and royalty vape.”
So here’s the question. Is this really what you get?
I received my bundle today to do a review, and this was the first one I reached for (duh!). After cleaning the coils, rewicking, and setting my Subox to 0.4 ohms, I let this puppy rip. My honest first reaction was “Oh my gosh…” Part of that is because it is very hard to get a delicious coffee flavor from something that genuinely is not an actual, tangible cup of coffee. However, I think these guys knocked it out of the park.
First off, the flavor is not too much of anything. The coffee has a nice richness, possibly a little darker than French roast. You get the taste of a cup of coffee that has not been burned, not been loaded down with a ton of sweeteners and creamer to make it bearable. The inhale gives a roasted coffee bean taste and the exhale of a smooth French Vanilla. The sweetness and bitterness was present in both the inhale and exhale in beautiful harmony. In all honesty, to me, this was pretty close to the perfect coffee blend.
Now to the flavoring. The flavors don’t taste like they were poured into a cup, stirred up, and handed to you a la mode (i.e. McDonald’s). It tastes like the flavors were actually infused into the coffee beans, with just a light dusting of cinnamon on top of what would be the frothy goodness in a cup. Again, not too sweet, not too heavy. Just the right blend.
Throat hit? Minimal at best. The flavors this company produces (from what I have tried so far) have been very smooth and full bodied. They take careful time in crafting the blends, and I really feel like it shows.
Cloud production on this is very solid. I have my machine set to 0.4ohms with about 33.7 watts. The clouds are not too heavy and not too thick. The only information I would love to find out is the PG/VG levels (although if I had to guess, I would probably say 70VG/30PG.
They sell these in nicotine levels of 0mg, 3mg, 6mg, 12mg, 18mg, 24mg. 15ml, 30ml, and 120ml bottles. So far, between this and Vader I truly am impressed with what they have concocted.
