COFFEE STORY
Bottleneck is all about celebrating seasonality in coffee to maintain a consistent flavour profile year-round. Balancing different seasonal coffee components is about selecting coffees from different farms or co-ops combined to complement and enhance each other. We always try to land on the blend version that will be interesting and complex but also approachable and familiar enough to be shared with anyone. Fun fact about Bottleneck: The name was inspired by the heroic rescue of a baby raccoon behind our Dundas cafe (reach out if you want the full story).

An excellent everyday coffee

I first had this coffee at a coffee shop (Weird Harbour Cafe) while on vacation at Halifax, Nova Scotia. This was the coffee they served each day, and they sold bags of all the Detour coffee varieties on their store rack. I looked forward each morning to walking to Weird Harbour to buy a cup, and eventually brought home a bag of Punch Bunny coffee, also great. Bottleneck is my ideal of how coffee should taste. Balanced, smooth, and full-bodied, with no acid taste. This is perfect coffee for each morning’s cup.

Bottleneck

So many great coffees available from Detour. Bottleneck, Bouncy Castle and Detour’s Dark Roast are my favourites.

Goes down smooth

This is probably my new favourite coffee. It doesn’t have that “kick in the face” feeling of bitterness most coffee blends have and I really like that.
