Treat yourself to a Seattle coffee strong enough to stand up your spoon (and anchor your boat). Bollard Blend is an old school roast with notes of cocoa, molasses, and turnbuckle. The roast was originally crafted for Scandinavian fish net makers in Seattle who wanted a coffee that reminded them of home: strong, dark, and bold, with no compromise on flavor. Their inspiration has led to a bestseller amongst sailors and hipsters alike in Seattle’s Fremont neighborhood.

★★★★★
This coffee was a bit sweet for how I usually drink my coffee, so I was able to enjoy this black.

★★★★★
Wonderful coffee. I have enjoyed all of the samples from this particular company. Brewed with french press.

★★★★★
This one is not as rich and dark as I'd like because I'd call it more of a dark medium but I do like it a lot.. The hints of cocoa and molasses really come through in this coffee. Excellent for brunch. I serve this a lot during holidays.

★★★★★
Smooth with a bit of spice. Made in french press and drank black.

★★★★★
Smooth, spicy, and sweet with dark cocoa notes! Delicious indeed! Great with a morning breakfast of chocolate waffles.

★★★★★
It is a little syrupy and spicy for me. Might do well for those who like it bolder.
Nathan
★★★★★
This is a very smooth dark roast. I don't get very much spice but there is definitely cacao in the after taste. Caffe Verona from Sbux was always my go to, and while there are some similarities, this blend is much smoother and has a cleaner palette real.
Lauren
★★★★★
Both my husband and I described this as a better version of Starbucks Caffe Verona. Dark with a subtle cocoa flavor and a little burnt-tasting. It wasn't our favorite, but still a good cup of coffee.

★★★★★
A very tasty dark roast. I've taken much pleasure from the coffees I've tried from Longshoreman's.
