    A really good flavor

    Posted by Chrisray on Jul 5th 2020

    This coffee has a really nice taste to it. Pretty dang smooth, and the smell is amazing. Opening up the bag in the morning is some sweet business. I do basically 4 rounded tbsp for 5 cups of water for my drip coffee maker and every morning having coffee is a highlight. I think about this coffee randomly throughout the day, kinda bummed that it'd be real stupid to have some with dinner, but I'd know it'd be fantastic with dinner or any desert. Had it with a spicy breakfast twice and that wasn't bad either, and not every coffee can be good with spicy breakfast.

    Good stuff, try it out. Wish I had some closer to me to avoid that shipping and handling

    If you need a coffee to drink while watching the characters on Twin Peaks drink coffee, this is the one.

    Part of a Balanced Breakfast

    Posted by Rhys Martin on Jul 1st 2020

    I'm not a coffee snob; I use a standard drip coffee maker at home and alternate between pre-ground coffee and fresh ground beans when I have the time and money. I bought this blend on a lark (thanks to Kyle MacLachlan's reddit AMA) and had it shipped to my home in Oklahoma...and it's probably the best coffee purchase I've ever made.

    The flavor is robust yet balanced. I can't tell you anything about notes or flavor essence - but it's smooth and rich. I wish I could be more descriptive...but know that you won't regret buying some of this remarkable coffee.

    Damn fine coffee

    Posted by Christopher Mullins on May 28th 2020

    I recently purchased this coffee and was honestly surprised just how quickly it was processed and shipped out. I got it after only a few days and it has to be one of the finest coffees I’ve had. I am happy to have taken a chance, as I don’t typically order this sort of thing - but I couldn’t be happier I did!

    Thank you so much to Walla Walla Roastery and Kyles collaboration!! It was and is amazing and I intend to order it in the future!

    B. B. Melange -- The Beans Must Flow!

    Posted by Caitlin Kramer on May 25th 2020

    Strong but smooth and a little (ahem) Spicy, this blend makes a darn fine cup of coffee! We live near Washington, DC, and will keep having Brown Bear 'thoptered in as long as it stays available for shipping. It is wonderful for sipping from a steaming mug on a still lockdown morning. However, the flavors also keep really well as the coffee cools, if you need to hop on the heighliner to the office and keep yourself caffeinated as you work on unlocking the mysteries of the universe.

    Delicious! Shipped ground beans across the country in 4 days. Can’t wait to upgrade and order the whole beans for even better taste.
