I liked it

I buy more and more from local roasters, but still learning how to describe the various smells. But, this was smooth with some hints of fruit and rich. Not bitter. I used in my espresso machine — 18g, 2 oz pour, about 25 seconds.

Absolutely Amazing!

Simply melted after taking that first smell of the Cortez Primo. Delicious blend, and looking forward to buying again and trying more blends! This will likely be the staple in our home.

Fabulously smooth Cortex Primo

We love the rich, full flavor of Cortez Primo!! This is fmy irst order placed on the web. Process was easy and prompt. Now we are happily enjoying Cortez on the East coast!

Very unique

This is one of the most unique tasting coffees I’ve tried from Cortez. It’s super caffeinated, so if you’re sensitive to caffeine be careful! I love it! ❤️

Great coffee

This coffee tastes great! I was drinking one brand for 10 years but I was looking for something different so I decided to try this and I really loved it!

Best roaster hands down

Best coffee and service hands down

Great

Great

Genuinely one of the best coffees I’ve ever had.

I have had A LOT of different coffees, I was a coffee master at Starbucks before that program went away, and of the literally hundreds of different coffees I’ve had, this easily fits into the top 5. It’s definitely not the usual coffee flavor most people are used to, but that’s a good thing. This is a great coffee for people who want something different and special.

I personally make it as espresso but it’s great however you brew it. BE AWARE: This coffee packs a HECK of a punch. There’s a lot more caffeine in this than most coffees so be ready and account for that. If you’re sensitive to caffeine start with a smaller dose than you think you should.

My personal brew procedure on flair 58X:
•25g
•1:2 ratio (25 grams ground coffee, 50 grams espresso out)
•95°C water
•23 seconds pull

Great to be back

Ordered coffee beans somewhere else to save some money and soon realized we had made a mistake. Received our order of Primo a couple of days ago and it is great. Smooth going down and no bitter aftertaste. Thx.

Very good smooth coffees. Tired of the pedestrian coffee in the supermarket. This coffee is a rounded one, not the usual weak and bitter ones. Try it.

Great tasting coffee

Just tried out a new coffee from Cortez. It is a light roast and it is very flavorful. I like it almost as much as the Nepal.

This is a good deal for 4 different bags of coffee. Have not tried all 4. The Cameroon Boyo is pretty unique, unlike most naturals that I have tasted. It's more earthy than fruity. It's very smooth and easy to drink. The Red honey is a good coffee but roasted a bit darker than I prefer.

Delicious

It was actually so good, and exactly to the description! I loved that it did have a deeper taste in the aromas of a dark roast, but it wasn’t smoky or overly roasted either.
It had a smooth, medium finish but with the richness that you’d expect from a dark roast in the chocolate nuttiness flavor!

Really wonderful coffee (and people!)

Cortez coffee is superb! My partner is obsessed with their decaf! I got their Costa Rica Volcun Peaberry beans and they have made wonderful ice coffee and cold brew! The team is also really nice, knowledgeable, and always ready with the best recommendations!
