Great deal from one of the top roasters in Ontario. I'll be getting 2 bags of lighter roasts to continue my endless supply of caffeine intake.

Never had this coffee, which bean do people enjoy in their espresso machines?

Buy them all!

It's good, but any coffee is great when it's freshly roasted. I've been rotating between these local roasters and just enjoying variety, it feels like visiting different coffee shops.

Anyone know if you can pickup in store for sale price? Doesn't seem to say. I see they have Uber eats as an option for pickup in store but prices are higher on there.

Any recommendations for medium or light roast beans? I need something that's not too oily for my machine.

The Heritage is their classic, medium blend. Recommend starting with that if you're new to Pilot.

TL;DW: Freeze your beans in air tight portions (1-2 week portions, so possibly one 340g bag at a time). The night before you want to use them, take them out of the freezer to defrost on your counter to reduce the amount of condensation when you do open them the next morning. Also, do NOT re-freeze them

I really like my coffee, but does this seem really expensive to anyone else?

If my maths are correct, for most blends @ $105/2.1kg - 20.09%, that works out to $18.14/lb. Kicking Horse on Amazon S&S is $8.49/lb. I realize that this is local and "artisan", but is worth more than twice the price of some already "pretty good" coffee?

Not criticising, just looking for honest opinions from coffee drinkers who have tried both.

Waaay better than KH. Pilot and Detour are the better roasters in Ontario.

I suggest trying out a bag to see if you think it’s worth the extra money.

Yes for me it is very much worth it. Kicking Horse tastes like horse piss compared to fresh locally roasted IMO.

Would def jump on this if I didn't just order 2 bags from detour and have a full bag of coffee on hand already.

It's worth it with the right set up. With a $30 coffee machine and a $15 blade grinder, there's barely any difference. With a $300 espresso machine and a $100 burr grinder, it makes all the difference.

Kicking Horse are my "backup" beans. I splurge on premium beans like this from time to time, and bridge the times I don't have them with KH, Ethical, etc.
