experience the difference
We seek exotic and one-of-a-kind flavor profiles in every single coffee we roast. We're proud to carry some of the best beans in the world that come directly from our partners. We promise a unique experience every cup.
Our coffee education comes from humble beginnings as coffee pickers in Costa Rica. After 30 years of learning, we believe that we have some of the most advanced knowledge and research practices in the industry.
We sell coffee bags by the pound/16 oz, not 12 oz, like the majority of coffee companies. We see no point in wasting packaging in order to make margins off of our sales. You get longer lasting bags and more bang for your buck.
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.
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.
Always the freshest and best coffee in town. Cortez has a wide variety of coffee to choose from with a wide range of smooth unique aromas and flavors. Nothing bitter and nothing bland. Simply the best!
It arrived without issue. Thanks
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.
I liked it! Really nice. Tasted good even after weeks in the bag.
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.
Absolutely love the taste and family does as well fantastic flavor
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!
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.
The beans were great!
I've been on a quest for a long time to find some really good Espresso to enjoy in the morning. I was eating a restaurant a while ago that had Cortez Primo Espresso as their coffee, and I was hooked. I've been purchasing 2 bags every 2 weeks on a rotation for several years now, and love it! The way Cortez makes their Primo is spectacular! I would spend my last dollar to make sure that I had some Primo Espresso. I've tried other Espresso's from other places and nothing compares to the amazing flavor that is provided by this Espresso. Whenever it's cut up and ready to put into my Espresso maker, the coffee just smells like heaven. One of the best smells ever, and then the taste is even better. I couldn't start my day any other way, than the Primo way via Cortez! Thanks guys for making pure Coffee Gold!
Excellent. This is by far my favorite coffee.
Smooth as the beaches of Vieques. Full bodied yet light, earthy yet exotic
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.
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!
For me, a good cup of coffee is worth a little extra effort. I purchase this coffee because it delivers a better flavor, and for me a better start to my day.
A modest luxury that pays dividends daily.
First time trying a coffee that wasn’t dark roasted, and this has an excellent chocolate flavor. Will order again.
A great choice for that first cup in the morning to get you energized. Full-bodied, yet not overwhelming.
Something you wanted to last forever. Not hooked on, but a taste alertness for every day active life.
It feels good that earth soil gave this kind of production to mankind.
The intelligence of man who used active volcano soil to grow fresh coffee from.
Love it and I can't imagine living without it.
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.
It’s the best day ever when Cortez beans show up to my house. Primo never fails to please me, the quality of this coffee for the price point is simply not comparable to any other coffee companies I have come across. Thank you Cortez team!
I have been a fan for years.Great coffee, super cool people.
Another great experience with Cortez coffee, which is my all-time favorite! Easy to navigate website, a quick delivery and of course their wonderful coffee! What more could I ask for?
Lovely taste unlink any other coffee I have tried, from Cortez or others. Make for delicious espresso, with or without cream/milk.
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.
My friends that come over for coffee love the Primo. It’s a crowd pleaser and the price on this is a bargain. I like a lot of the single origin coffee too but this Is my overall go to daily blend.
I love this coffee because its so clean and pure every time. Little to no bitterness, perfect amount of sweetness, and an all around great balanced cup. One of the few coffees I can drink all day every day. Also love it 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.
I have been enjoying this bean for about 10 years; it is extraordinary!!
So, I know this said caramel undertones, but personally, I felt this was a medium roast coffee with chocolately undertones and was really rich and smooth (but not overpowering). This would be my second favourite coffee from Cortez at this point. Quality is fantastic and I really enjoyed the chocolaty flavour.
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 got hooked on this bean when I visited a local Phoenix breakfast spot in 2016. Ever since I’ve ordered online & had it shipped to San Francisco! I can’t wait to move back to AZ & be able to stop in the shop in Tempe for a taste & to shop! Love my Cortez beans!!
Espresso Primo is a delicious bean. It can be used for a drip maker or an espresso so it’s versatile. I recently sent some to my son in Colorado, now he’s hooked for his espresso maker!
Taste sweet. Good by itself even if you don't add anything to it.
Tasted fresh. Rich flavor. Gave me a jolt of energy in the morning; felt productive after drinking it.
A cup of Primo usually gives me the energy for several hours of studying.
I've tried almost all of the coffees here, and I just like Primo the best. The smell of it energizes me, I enjoy the experience of drinking it, and I really like the flavor and its consistency.
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.
Hands down best coffee I have tried at home. The smell of the coffee grounds is just amazing. By far my favorite coffee.
This coffee is packed with fruit and floral flavors. A great medium roast that makes a great after dinner cup.
I love this coffee. My whole family loves it, and I ship it to them abroad. My father is a big coffee drinker, and I have not seen him this impressed with coffee before this one. Worth the cost, would pay more to have it in stock for life!
Is this the best coffee ever? No. Is it still pretty damn good? YES! For the average everyday pot of coffee consumer, this will please you without breaking the bank. If coffee is a one cup per day or less treat for you, get a single origin. If coffee is a necessity, you’ve found a good blend. Save the pricier stuff for special occasions!
We tasted Cortez Expresso Primo coffee a couple of years ago while visiting our son and daughter in law in the Phonenix area. They took us to dine at The Farm, and they told us they were serving Cortez Coffee, locally roasted. We went to the Cortez roasting site and tasted several of the coffees, all of which are all delicious. We have been ordering the Expreso Primo in bulk for the last number of years to be delivered in WA State. Our guests love it as well. Thank you for creating this smooth, mildly flavored chocolate expresso, which we drink as a drip coffee- it is tasty from the first to the last sip - we love it!
Love this tea!!!! Such great flavor and aroma!
