Essentials Tasting Pack Essentials Tasting Pack
$54.00

Looking for a gift or new to Detour Coffee and specialty? 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.
