Great deal. I've been going to a physical store and getting the Heritage ground very fine. The only challenge for me is that I don't have a proper grinder and they only can grind it to medium :(

~$20/lb is a common price for quality coffee locally roasted.

Not saying that cheaper beans aren't good (I hardly buy anything above ~$10-12/lb myself), but it's a totally different game.

No beans that are just plain, simple and original? Meaning no chocolate, toffee, citrus, etc.

Just looking for plain beans.

These are plain beans. Those are just the tasting notes.

Not trying to discourage you; I just want you to know that if you aren't sure what you are looking for, this could be low value for you since even with the sale, it is more expensive than typical coffee beans that one might buy elsewhere. That being said, these are great beans so if you end up liking it for the price, glad you took a chance on them!

Coffee labels are like wine labels. Those words don't suggest they actually contain those things in it. It's just a fancy way of describing how sweet or sour it tastes.

Pilot is high tier. Kicking horse has great marketing, but not hugely better than the average grocery store stuff. Because of said marketing, it is able to command a higher price than it's worth. I would say neither kicking horse nor pilot are values at their sticker prices, and probably not at 20% off. There is also the thing about pilot that it is high quality coffee and it needs some amount of good machine/user pouring skill to get the most out of it. If you have a cheap coffee maker, the pilot will taste better, but you're probably not getting the most out of the coffee. Think of it like buying a Neon with a Hellcat engine that you use to drive to the grocery store, exclusively.

I would suggest neither pilot nor kicking horse. Kicking horse because it is always overpriced. Pilot because, baring a great machine or user skill, is a mismatch.

IMO Pilot is significantly better.

Sorry. I meant the tasting notes. I don’t mind picking this up for myself but some family members aren’t a fan. We are looking for different coffee beans from roasters.

Thanks got 3 bags. Just opened the 3rd bag from the last sale.

Gotta say though...the price of the Beans and how much we go through is killing me! I gotta find a more budget bean for everyday use. I likes my Costco organika beans through my bonavita drip machine, but it doesn't work well on the breville at all.

A piece of advice from me on Pilot coffee, stick to the classic side of espresso. The adventurous side just didn't work too well for me. If you like the taste of classic espresso stick to Heritage or Mounument roasts, definitely worth the money.
