Why we love this pack

Our starter pack of Detour essentials is a great way to taste 3 of our most popular coffees across a spectrum of flavour profiles and origins. This 3 coffee selection is a great introduction to Detour’s approach to roasting and sourcing coffee. The set includes 3 year-round favourites Punch Buggy, Bottleneck, and Bouncy Castle which feature a variety of tasting notes and roast styles.

What's in the Pack?

Punch Buggy - Like the classic VW beetle, Punch Buggy is unique, friendly, and suits all occasions. As Detour’s flagship coffee, this blend is built around the love of coffees from the Cachoeira da Grama farm in Brazil, Punch Buggy maintains a Brazil base while rotating fresh, vibrant seasonal Central American coffees through the blend. We love it for its rich and balanced profile, with sugar browning aromatics leading to a syrupy texture and sweet notes of deep chocolate, hazelnut and cherry.

Bottleneck - Bottleneck is really sweet and balanced with sugar browning aromatics leading to a creamy texture and smooth comforting notes of fig and toffee.  Built around the love of an everyday, approachable, and easy-drinking filter coffee, Bottleneck typically combines coffees from Colombia, Guatemala, and Costa Rica—but no origin is ever really off the table! We love it for its attention to balance, creamy texture, and toffee-like sweetness.

Bouncy Castle - Built on our love of African coffees, this coffee is bright, buoyant, and makes us happy! Bouncy Castle typically showcases a single-origin washed Ethiopian coffee, but is open to any sparkly coffees as long as there’s something vibrant, sweet, and fun in the flavour. We love it for its floral aromatics, tea-like texture, fruit-forward acidity, and sweet juicy finish.

 

All bags are 300-grams each. Detour coffees are sold as whole bean only.

My morning pleasure

I look forward to my “pour over” cup of Bottleneck coffee as soon as I wake up in the morning, even when going to sleep sometimes. It is a nicely balanced coffee with no bitterness. I love the delivery service, it’s prompt and means I never run out.

My go to blend for espresso based drinks !

Love this blend, buy it by the kilo! Unbeatable value as well. Have tried other local roasters in Hamilton but this is my favourite! Perfect balance easy to dial in, great as espresso, americano, even great in moca pot when camping ! 5 stars all day

My new go-to

This is currently my favorite coffee. Love the toffee/caramel/brown sugar notes! Everyone that I have given a cup says the same thing - it is delicious and has a lot of depth!

Full of flavour

I use this in my drip maker . It is so luscious! Chocolate notes and low acid. I always get asked what I am brewing. Nothing else for me and trust me, I have tried all of the high end brands !
