Orca Blend: Dive into this Dark Roast

#107 Orca Blend

12 oz whole bean dark coffee
Add to Cart

If you’re looking for a killer dark roast, I’ve got a whale of a coffee for you! Orca Blend is a Pacific Northwest gem, rich and complex, dark-roasted in “old Seattle” style. As bold and strong as its namesake, the amazing aroma of this coffee will captivate you the moment you open the bag. Orca Blend is full-bodied and smooth, with knock-out flavors of earthy chocolate and a sweet, smoky finish.

You can’t get more “traditional dark roast” than this: Vashon Island Coffee Roasterie’s founder was selling his beans on the fisherman’s pier as early as 1969! His 25 year old “roasterie” (I love the vintage spelling) is located on historic Vashon Island, a short ferry ride from Seattle… as described in the Travel Section of the New York Times as “A Trip Across Water and Time”. Vashon Island is also the perfect place to spot one of Seattle’s resident orca whales, native Pacific Northwest symbols of strength and power– the inspiration behind this strong and powerful cup.

If you’re looking for a taste of the deep and darkly-roasted, dive with me into the Orca Blend. It’s one of my favorite dark roasts: bold, smooth, a little smoky and a little sweet. Take a sip and let this unique and romantic blend add its own strength and power to your morning-– from here on out, it’ll be smooth sailing.

★★★★★ ★★★★★ It was a fine dark roast, but nothing particular stood out about it.
★★★★★ ★★★★★ I thought this was a decent darker roast, wasn't overwhelmingly thick in taste (if that makes sense?!). Definitely tasted the chocolate and dark tea like flavors, but didn't get much of the black currant. One cup was enough to satisfy.
★★★★★ ★★★★★ In the french press, it was a nice darker roast, but I didn't get a whole lot of distinct flavors.
★★★★★ ★★★★★ As some have said here, nothing much stood out from this dark roast. Little sweet and pretty smooth.
★★★★★ ★★★★★ This was a decent cup of coffee, but nothing stood out about it.
★★★★★ ★★★★★ The chocolate tones were great and not too over-powering. A nice medium roast.
★★★★★ ★★★★★ This dark roast tasted of tobacco and smoke to me, rather thin. Husband says it does not taste like Orcas.
★★★★★ ★★★★★ Pretty traditional dark roast, with a few nice chocolate notes. Good in the morning or afternoon.
★★★★★ ★★★★★ I didn’t really taste anything special in this coffee, solid dark roast but not exciting enough for me to want to reorder
★★★★★ ★★★★★ Bold and full flavor profile. I will get for sure buy a large bag!
