So delicious!!

Bouncy Castle is such a tasty coffee. I love lighter roasts and this one is so good - bright, tangy, and super flavorful. Fantastic made in an aeropress.

Detour by far roasts the best coffee!

A lively cup of coffee

The taste profile is as advertised and I find I can coax the flavours out with out undue fiddling and fuss. This is one of my all time favourite coffees.

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!
