Cannot wait to try the new to me Tarrazu beans this week.
I'm finishing up my previous order from you which is the same flavor. As great as the Terrazu is, I'll be very Happy when you get the other Azul back in stock. It was extra good. You guys are incredible with your quality coffees. And your mailing response time is unbelievablely fast. I appreciate having my delicious coffee in Nebraska when I can't get to Phoenix. Your customer Service is just as quality as your coffee.
Costa Rica is one of my favorite coffee origins in general, and the Tarrazu does not disappoint. It has a nice citrus undertone without being acidic. This one is a staple on our shelf.
The beans were great!
Smooth as the beaches of Vieques. Full bodied yet light, earthy yet exotic
This coffee is simply delicious.
This coffee is packed with fruit and floral flavors. A great medium roast that makes a great after dinner cup.
I love the coffee. It's the best!
It’s so good to know we have a local roaster who makes some dam good coffee! Support local!!
Whenever I see a bag of Nepal coffee, I scoop it right up. And let me say that this bag does not disappoint. It is light and smooth, roasted to perfection!
Excellent. This is by far my favorite coffee.
I have been getting my coffee from Cortez for years. And it is always very tasty. The subscription service through the mail is an added bonus in this time of pandemic! I love a good local business. Keep it up Ron and crew.
I definitely enjoyed the Colombian Timana. It’s a great roast. It’s very smooth and tastes great as is or with a splash of cream. I love to use the Chemex with this roast.
First time trying a coffee that wasn’t dark roasted, and this has an excellent chocolate flavor. Will order again.
So this coffee smells amazing, I woke up to this delicious brew the other morning. I normally drink the Primo blend or house blend but I will have to say this is another awesome coffee I have had the pleasure of drinking. I love getting coffee delivered to my doorstep, especially here lately with all the stay at home orders in place. Thanks to the friendly staff over there for the prompt delivery and great customer Service when I called in with questions.
Lovely taste unlink any other coffee I have tried, from Cortez or others. Make for delicious espresso, with or without cream/milk.
Great service, shipping, and quality beans! Will order again.
The French Roast from Cortez is the best I've ever had. This is why I buy it on a 2 week rotation from them! I've actually contemplated getting more because I run out too fast sometimes, and if my delivery is late, then I start to freak out because I have to use some "other" brand that isn't close to the flavor. Cortez....there's nothing better!
A great choice for that first cup in the morning to get you energized. Full-bodied, yet not overwhelming.
Tasted fresh. Rich flavor. Gave me a jolt of energy in the morning; felt productive after drinking it.
This coffee is bizarre. It’s a super light roast and brews up the color of a white tea. I tried pour over, espresso and landed on cold brew.
As a fan of the Starbucks blonde roast, I was intrigued by Mr. White. After a fresh grind in the morning I made a 1/2 sized pot of coffee and... loved it! It has a delicious nutty flavor that is unlike any coffee I have had before. I immediately made a full pot of Mr. White.
Mr. White is a popular roast for
My small coffee drive thru. It’s light, nutty and delicious. We have people who do not like traditional espresso flavor , and they come for the White, Mr. White is where it’s at!
I liked it! Really nice. Tasted good even after weeks in the bag.
I normally don’t love decaf coffee, but since I have to sleep sometimes, I figured I’d give it a try. It’s a great roast and has delicious dark chocolate flavor. Excellent for when I want a cup after dinner.
I tried Cortez with a friend, and I don't usually drink coffee, but the flavor of the decaf is great! All their coffees smell so good.
I decided to venture out and check out another type of coffee from Cortez, and when I looked at this coffee I was intrigued. I personally love San Francisco, there's nothing like being on the warf and smelling all the life around it. This coffee brings that to your home. It's versatile and very tasty regardless of how you brew it. I've tried it with a French Press, regular coffee drip, and through my espresso maker. It makes a great cold coffee, and also a great cappuccino! This coffee definitely can provide an experience with the senses and make you feel as if you are sitting on the warf drinking some amazing coffee! The smell of the beans is phenomenal and when they are freshly ground and used, the smell is even more magnificent. I have, now, added this to my Subscription from Cortez, so that I will not be without! Thanks again Ron Cortez and Crew, you have knocked it out of PNC Park!
Absolutely love the taste and family does as well fantastic flavor
The excitement of natural product of nature.
Light roast as an Arabian taste, so you would love to change your taste with dates afterwards.
You would appreciate non artificial chocolate to go along with this coffee.
As hard to describe any taste in life, this has a buzz of natural fruit.
We have been buying your coffee for many years and have found no better anywhere else! This was our first experience having it shipped, normally we drive in from Maricopa to buy it in your store. While this was very smooth and convenient, I would say we might do a little of both, as we would miss not see both Ron and Kevin in person 😊 Have a great day and keep up the great work you are doing!
Honestly, the flavor is spot on. Beautiful. Can't wait to try the other kinds!
Is it what it is. Money 💰!!!!
I tried many roasters, local and non local but Cortez kept delivering delicious coffee every time! PRIMO is a go to for overall balance and great taste. Highly recommended!
So full of aroma and flavor!! Best coffee ever!
This is a great flavored coffee, wonderful quality, but it IS a very light coffee. If you are one who doesn't like the bold kick of some of the other coffees, this would definitely be for you. But the flavor is very good and if you drink it black it may be better, need to be careful on how much cream you add so you don't water it down too much. Highly recommend if you enjoy light coffees!
Complex flavors with intense aroma. This coffee with cinnamon and chocolate overtones is a great way to start the day.
I sampled the Mr. White, the House Blend, and the San Francisco Experience. All were great. I did realize that I am more of a med-dark roast fan, the ulta light roast of Mr. White was different, it lacked the bitter roasty flavor I'm fond of, however, it did give a new dimension to other coffees when I'd mix them and it definitely gave a caffeine kick.
The House Blend and SF Experience were both fantastic, I think the House Blend was my favorite. All great coffees and I loved the sample sizes so I could try things out. I'll be ordering more of the House Blend for sure and likely the SF Experience. Thanks again!!
I purchased four different medium roasts and each has a deliciously distinct flavor. Plus the stomach issues other coffees have caused are non-existent with the local roaster’s beans. Win Win!
