La Colombe Lyon Coffee

A sweet, fruity coffee blend, Lyon was created by owners Todd Carmichael, Jean Philippe Iberti and actor/activist Leonardo DiCaprio, with an aim to becoming the most sustainable and ethically responsible coffee in the world. Through purchases of Lyon coffee beans, you will make a significant impact on projects that defend lands and oceans, protect clean water, help endangered species, aid disaster relief and support alternative and green energy efforts. The coffee's exceptional taste is achieved by blending directly sourced and sustainably grown coffees from the mountains of Haiti, Peru, Ethiopia and Brazil. The first ingredient of the coffee blend, Lyon, is a semi-wild sustainably grown heirloom coffee from the mountains of Haiti. This medium-light roast is recommended for French press, espresso or stovetop. 100% of La Colombe's net proceeds from the sale of this blend will go directly to those nonprofit organizations working to solve the most pressing issues facing our planet. The premier La Colombe Torrefaction blends have become favorites with coffee aficionados everywhere, as well as with some of the best restaurants in New York. Produced in limited quantities. 12 oz. bag whole beans. Made in USA.

I was very excited about trying this coffee only to have it delivered expired after having to wait a month for the delivery! I am very unhappy about this and probably will not order again.

Delicious coffee!
November 9, 2012
This is one outstanding coffee. It's very smooth with a hint of caramel. To me, one of the marks of a good coffee is that it can be drunk black, without cream or sugar. People started adding cream and sugar to their coffee because back then the coffee was wildly inferior to what we have now. The cream and sugar masked the bitterness of bad coffee, and it gave some flavor to the canned supermarket coffees that are flavorless. This coffee doesn't need cream or sugar. Do yourself a favor and buy a French press to brew this coffee. It will really release the oils and flavor of this excellent roast.
By the way, I work for the green mermaid and for me to like another roaster's coffee tells you it is good.
Pros: Easy to Prepare, Authentic, Quality, Flavor

Wonderful Coffee
July 30, 2012
I read about this coffee online and had to order it from the maker as the stores did not have it yet but now they do and we keep in stock of this coffee. It's hard to explain but the taste is unlike anything we've ever had and when the wife says she likes something, you can take that to the bank!
Pros: Quality, Flavor
