A medium-dark roast with juicy black currant and lingering chocolate notes. A coffee this smooth is as rare as spotting an orca in the wild. But please: no harpoons!
Our Orca blend is rich, complex, earthy and well balanced. A mysterious, deep blend of harmonious overtones, created in tribute to the Killer Whale.
"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!"
"Really not my favorite. Didn’t like this coffee at all "
"Dark, bold coffee. Great flavor. I think this would make a good winter coffee. "
"I absolutely loved this coffee! It was so Earthy and smooth. Even the last bit that had gotten cold was still lovely! Definitely ordering more of this one! "
"It was too strong for me. And a few days after grind smell was not so good. "
"Fantastic. Really enjoyed this one. Rich and the fruit is subtle."
"I just opened my bag and the smell was beautiful as were the beans. It is a smooth coffee with excellent flavor and perfect for my morning. This is one of my new favorites. "
"Thought this was very good. Begins with a fresh taste, then a rich chocolaty undertone and finishws without any bitterness."
"Good, not great. A good solid med/dark roast, but I prefer a little less earthy blend. If earthiness and smoothness are your thing, you might love it. "
"Certainly interesting but not a favorite. Too dark and earthy for my taste, but very smooth and mild for a darker roast. "
"This coffee was a little too dark and bitter for my taste though my husband enjoyed it."
"This didn't really standout for me. Good roast but pretty typical."
"Was freshly roast, uniform in size. It was a bit to darkly roasted for my taste. I didn't taste the chocolate, but perhaps a more sour taste which must be the current. "
"Definitely an interesting flavor I haven't tried before (and won't be again). I can definitely see why others would like it though."
"For a dark roast it was ok. Currant is not a taste i enjoy in any coffee."
"Really good, but also really dark. Loved the notes of black currant and chocolate. "
"Made with a moka. Solid, bold coffee with a definite chocolatey taste; it becomes more fruity/nutty (getting sweeter) as it cools, and leaves a nice roasted aftertaste. Definitely a solid, well-rounded coffee."
"I adore this coffee! Ordered it whole bean, ground it, and used a french press. Delicious."
"A decidedly dark and bold roast that features a hint of smokiness and smokiness and an earthly aftertaste. Great if you want something rice and robust."
"This coffee was a little on the bitter side and not one of the favorites on our "Bean Box" list. We tried brewing it in the auto drip instead of the french press, but had the same result. Just not a fan. It smelled amazing though, so maybe others will like this stronger roast better than we did. "
"Loved the scent on this coffee after grinding it, I couldn't help but take a big inhale! Bold, dark and delicious!"
"Brewed in my french press. Very bold, a little too bold for my taste but I enjoyed the cup nonetheless. "
"Didn't love it but it's not exactly my style. I didn't exactly taste the fruit, maybe slightly chocolatey..."
"Brewed with a french press, notable complexity. It starts with a medium body, sweeter profile and finishes with a stronger, darker profile (some hints of chocolate). It sticks with you for a few moments but doesn't leave a lingering dark aftertaste. A strong coffee that will pick you up. "
"A beautiful, well balanced coffee, and one of my favorites that I've received over the last six months. Not too bitter, not too sour, just right!"
"Some documentaries are bland but I do enjoy a good Killer Whale documentary. Those poor seals get tossed! I found this blend bland so I tossed in some roasted cocoa nibs to enrich its flavor content."
"A good coffee. Not as dark, earthy or spicy as I would have preferred."
"Made in my drip coffee maker, great flavor, well balanced"
"I'm enjoying a cup of the Orca Blend now. Despite the description it's not too dark, and not too bitter. Full bodied and delicious!"
"The Orca blend is wonderfully smooth and rich, and is enjoyable all on its own. I like to use the pour-over method to get the perfect brew. "
"As advertised but very mild. I may have over brewed it a few minutes because it came out a little bit bitter for me but it's a very soft medium roast so even with a bit of bitterness it was still good. "
"Received a medium roast gift box. This was my favorite of the 4. It is complex with its medium-dark notes. I drink my coffee without cream or sweeteners and use a coffee press. The currant stands out, slightly earthy, very smooth to taste and the chocolate aroma is nice. I recommend for sure. "
"Good value coffee. Simple but good with the right creamer. "
"Delicious and simple. This coffee is an excellent value."
