TASTING

A smooth and balanced profile with comforting dried fruit aromatics leading to a creamy texture and smooth notes of toffee and fig.

COFFEE STORY

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. 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).

A great flavour

First met Bottleneck in a coffee shop while on a road trip NW of Toronto. I had been looking for a decent coffee bean with no luck from the mass marketers. The host didn't have the retail product to sell me but gave me Detour's name. I've been drinking it ever since, interspersed with some of their other offerings.

The flavour via an Aeropress is immense - love it!

Best. Coffee. Ever!

I love Detour coffee, prior to the pandemic I would travel to the nearest city to me and haunt a local coffee shop that had this delicious coffee, and this is where I discovered Detour. Lucky for me, during the pandemic, they provide easy ordering, notice of roasting (so you know it's fresh) and quick delivery. I've tried several types and will continue but Bottleneck is my favorite.

My favourite coffee

This coffee makes by far the best pour over I've ever had. I have tried multiple blends from different roasters and so far nothing has come close to the Bottleneck at Detour. If you're looking to truly experience a great tasting and balanced coffee, this is the one right here!

Delicious coffee

Just love this coffee. It is perfect for me - not too strong and not too mild.
