This entry will be a little different then my standard reviews. This coffee, the Billy Gruff blend, is a coffee that I’ve been drinking at home as of late. Feel free to leave some feedback/comments on what you think of this type of post below.
I picked this variety up while on a camping trip on Vancouver island last month. Located in Coombs, just outside of Parksville, Coombs Old Country Market is a must-visit place if you’re in the area. Not only do they have a stunning variety of goods to purchase in their store, including this lovely coffee, but they have goats that actually hang out on the roof!
Roasted in Nanaimo, and pegged as a “medium-dark roast blend”, this coffee is, simply put, balanced. It’s not overwhelming like some dark roasts can be, but it has more of a kick then you’d expect from your standard medium roast. It’s very smooth, and easy to drink. I totally forgot how much I paid for this bag of beans, so I asked their goats (literally, check out their website). Priced at $13.99, it’s perfect for the morning, but great for an afternoon pick me up too!
Open daily from March to December, 9am-7pm, Coombs Old Country Market is a must-see place on the Island!
