Love this coffee!! delivery partner was terrible

Absolutely love all the beans roasted by Detour. I gotta say, even some of my bad coffee pulls are still really good flavour.

But, if you're downtown, be mindful of the delivery partner. I've had an issue prior to this order with this same company, and this time, I tried to me them in the hallway (condo living). They stopped halfway down the hallway and they yelled at me "There's no parking", threw the box down on the ground like it was yesterdays garbage and left. Wish i had the phone out cause it was like a scene outta Seinfeld.

If you're reading this far, honestly, don't take this review as an indication of Detour. I love them! Coffee is fantastic and so are the crew. Order it while you can!

Okay, not great

Trickier to dial in, seems inconsistent, could be on my end. However when it is right, it is pretty good.

Very good - you could almost eat it.

This is a very good coffee. I love the fact it is a light roast and the description of fruit forward with floral aromatics is accurate. I am using this with a automatic espresso machine and it delivers a superb coffee that makes you want more.

Bouncy

Greta espresso. Suits my tastes on the brighter side of things but easy to get a well-balanced espresso from it.

The big bag is great because it means dialling once instead of thrice
