The Roasters Pack Review - October 2016 - Canadian Coffee Subscription Box

This box was provided complimentary for review.
  
What is it? The Roasters Pack 
How Much? $29.99/month. Save on 3, 6, or 12 month subscriptions. Includes tax and shipping! 
What's in it? Three 4oz bags of fresh coffee beans, roasted by independent Canadian roasters

The Roasters Pack is a Canadian coffee subscription service. Each month, The Roasters Pack sends three roasts from three different artisan roasters. The independently roasted beans can make approximately 30 cups of coffee. You can choose your grind or go with whole bean. If you are ordering for a group or workplace, larger packages are available as well. 

We dig to find coffee roasters that aren't available on your average grocery shelf but are producing exceptional coffee. For the one beverage most folks drink daily, we want to make it as enjoyable and interesting as possible. Our goal is to put the light on some of the smaller roasters who are creating a great product but don't have the means to get through the regular channels of distribution.

Along with three packages of coffee each month, The Roasters Pack also offers tasting notes and special extras. On their website, you can find in depth information about the roast and the roaster behind it.
All our roasters have a unique story to tell. Through videos, photographs and interviews of the roasters, we present a unique and intimate perspective on their craft. We share their coffee, their story and then share a portion of the profits with the coffeekids.org charity.
First look!

De Mello Palheta Coffee Roasters Ethiopia Biloya
This roasting company is based in Toronto. Sourced from Ethiopia, these beans have notes of red grape, mango, and rose. The info card includes instructions for the perfect French pressed coffee.
Biloya is an intense but sweet coffee with a chocolate and red grape aroma. It has a rosy, yogurt-like acidity with a full, syrupy mouthfeel. Mango & stone fruit flavours are easy to detect and the finish is rich and pleasant.
Pilot Coffee Roasters  El Centro
Pilot is also based in Toronto. El Centro is sourced from Costa Rica and channels notes of toffee and dried fruits.
It starts off with notes of toffee, which blend into a subtle background of dried fruit. With a heavier body and syrupy mouthfeel, this coffee stands out as having a lot of flavour while being super easy drinking.
49th Parallel Coffee Roasters
49th Parallel is based in Burnaby, just outside Vancouver. My local independent coffee shop exclusively uses 49th Parallel beans, so I'm quite familiar with them. This is a blend sourced from Honduras with notes of mixed berries, dried figs, and vanilla.
Most producers in the higher altitudes of Santa Barbara, they all have a very distinct acidity with different tropical fruits and different berries, they’re not the loudest coffees, but they’re really complex.
The October box from The Roasters Pack included three pouches of coffee from three different Canadian coffee roasters. In total, this box included 12 ounces of whole bean coffee, which will produce around 30 cups of coffee. That's enough to get me through the entire month! Each pack also includes a discount code to order more coffee online, direct from the roasters. This is a great subscription for any coffee lover, and a great way to support local Canadian businesses.
