Man this absolutely delicious! I'm highly impressed and drawn to try all regions, beans and styles. Thanks - JLD
This was the question I asked when a friend of mine posted on a group chat. @ $27/lb is it worth it. He said he thought so. I scoffed…. Only to buy two lbs to try. First pour over was sublime. My wife and I have a new favorite.
It tastes really nice and clean, and quite like the description for the body of the coffee and feel of it in the mouth is lasting.
I’ve made it with my aeropress and French press also (so while not the purist version) the flavours have come out nicely for the morning and afternoon, satisfying after a VERY LONG RUN!
We loved your coffee. It is a perfect blend for us. We don't like very strong coffee and this blend was just right. Wonderful, smooth taste!
This is a wonderful ful bodied coffee that I've fixed on my stove top expresso pot. I love it with milk for a tasty Latte! I bought expresso beans too! I'll try them next! I also need to try the chocolate! The service was great! Thank you!
Chocolate was delicious too!

This makes for a great cup of pour over coffee. Well balanced and smooth, yet still has a nice complexity of flavor. This will be added to my normal rotation.
At breakfast in our Kathmandu hotel, I thoroughly enjoyed the coffee being served. I told the waiter how much I enjoyed their coffee and asked if he knew where they got it. He pointed north and said "...out in the mountains." They got it local! I was surprised --- I hadn't previously known Nepal was a coffee producing country. While my home kitchen isn't quite like that quaint hotel coffee shop, I can still enjoy this coffee I ordered from Cortez. It is marvelous
Coffee was great. So smooth. First time I tried Nepalese. I'm a coffee fanatic and it was a pleasure. It ships so quick being that I'm 3,000 miles away. Thank you so much for your great service and keep up the excellent work. Look forward to another purchase!
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!!
Ever since we bought our first bag of Cortez coffee, we have been absolutely in love with the company and the company. The coffees are complex, and there are enough varieties to please every palate. We love the Red Honey and Apex varieties the best. They are everything we are looking for in a coffee, and more. Every bag we receive is of the highest quality. Our order always ships within 24 hours, and it arrives just as quickly. Highly recommend this company and their products - you won’t regret it!
It is so amazing ! The flavor is out of this world ! This now is my fav coffee ! Little sweet little rum tasting gotta have it !
Volcan Azul, Costa Rica (Red Honey)
So many unique notes in this flavorful coffee! Receiving it just two days after roasting was a treat. Great quality, and local too. Thanks!
Loved the coffee - quick delivery too!
We absolutely love the coffee from Cortez. It’s always so fresh and tastes delicious! We also love that we’re supporting a local business!!
This coffee has a very nice flavor; however, it still doesn’t have the robust mouth feel that can hold up to half-and-half I’m looking for.
I have flirted with different Cortez Coffees and always come back to Apex! I love this Coffee, it is so balanced and smooth and those caramel undertones are what dreams are made of. Thank you Cortez Coffee!
Well ballenced. Pulls a good shot.
Lovely taste unlink any other coffee I have tried, from Cortez or others. Make for delicious espresso, with or without cream/milk.
Best coffee ever
This is my favorite. Sometimes I mix it with the house blend.
Best beans I’ve had in the valley. Carefully roasted toe sure bringing out the character of the beans. perfection.
I refuse to drink anything else. My husband and I got new espresso machines and this is the only coffee we use and it’s amazing! All flavors are rich and unique but all so delicious!
All coffees are excellent.
My fav coffee !!
I've order many times without any problems or delays, this time I am still waiting for the delivery of my product :(
We apologize on not receiving your order. We just checked the tracking and it looks like the package was delayed by USPS but still in transit. We do our best to send out the coffee as fast as possible, but unfortunately sometimes there are delays with shipping companies. I will be following up with an email shortly. Thank you Susan!
Like drinking a nutty tea. I've tried espresso, and pour over
Wedding coffee was delicious. Everyone commented on the great taste. Thank you so much for helping us.

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.
My husband and I tried out several different blends and they were all delicious. We particularly like the Primo and French Roast and will be ordering more. This is some of the best coffee you can get in the valley! Processing and shipping is fast and easy.
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!
For me this coffee is a swisher, not a sipper. The notes are enigmatic; subtle yet definite. I kept going in for another try, but my vocabulary failed and my cup emptied. I am so happy I tried this one! It is so pleasing.
I love the first bag, cant wait to try the others. Thank you!
I love the variety of this sampler and the coffees are FANTASTIC. I can't quite decide which is my favorite of the three, but leaning toward the red honey. Thanks again for the amazing coffee!
First, my order shipped the same day I ordered and arrived quickly and in great condition.
About the coffee - I loved it. This coffee is delicious. Earthy and tangy. The roast is on the lighter side for my tastes, though it still works well with some half and half, if that is your thing. I will likely buy some more before this "nano-lot" of Cameroon Boyo coffee is gone.
Another bonus is the "More than Fair" trade terms Cortez Coffee practices. One can feel good that a good portion of the purchase price actually goes to the origins of the coffee.
