This is the Morning Sun brought to you by Olympia Coffee Roasting Co. This Fully Washed coffee was grown in the Tolima region of Colombia between 1600 and 1900 meters above sea level. We think this coffee is extremely reliable and ideal for your morning filter/drip brewing methods. It also makes an exceptional cold brew as the temperatures rise and you are looking for something to serve over ice.
It was fine. Actually, for the coffee it is, pretty good. I prefer a bit more fruit or caramel in my coffee. Grinding it a little coarser than I normally do actually helped a bit as well.
It was good! Not life changing but good.
Chocolate-y, full bodied, simple. Delicious
I enjoyed the cup of coffee. The flavor notes were very evident.
Really delicious, delicate and crisp coffee. Just be sure to use 1/3c / 16oz because it loses its punch significantly at lower ratios.
Tried the first cup at the 16:1 recommended ratio out of a Chemex. Looking forward to trying this as cold brew. I prefer something with more fruit notes but a strong four star rating.
I liked the flavor. It was a tiny bit dark, but I've only had one cup of it so far.
Familiar and easy to drink, especially with food. Good contrast to lighter, more citrusy and floral beans.
When I first brewed it, I used my normal 17:1 ratio and it was way too weak. When I followed the recommended 16:1 it was better, but still a bit less flavorful than I would prefer.
My wife and I really liked this coffee for our espresso and americano.
Great morning cup. Very easy and smooth.
It was decent but I want something more fruity
Too much chocolate. Good aroma out of bag. Lacking full range brewed.
This is a great go to coffee for daily use. Easy to drink (not too dark not too light) and the taste holds up if you come back to a cold cup of coffee later on in the day
Caffeine content seems low. A little too light in flavor.
I liked it very much. Strange though. It looks and grinds like a light roast yet it tastes and looks like a dark roast after brewing.
I love this coffee! The chocolate/hazelnut flavors are super subtle but delicious with oat milk
3.5 stars I'd say. It's good but a bit darker than I generally like. I would prefer something a bit sweeter.
Still trying to get the grind right brewing with the V60, but so far not tasting very strong flavors, if anything a bit smoky
Really good, I think like any coffee it would be better in a pour-over or french press. But it’s amazing! Full bodied, rich but not overpowering
One of the best coffees I have ever had!
Nice level of acidity. Chocolate/hazelnut sounds right. A lil fruity: too much further in that direction and I'd not be into it.

This is a very good coffee. I am called a coffee snob, this is a very good coffee that I would buy again. Five star rating is hard to rate properly on a scale of 1 to 10 I would give it an eight which is very very good. Top shelf.
A little acidic
It is fruity
LOVE this coffee! So delicious made as an espresso!
This was a good coffee, a little light for a medium roast. A course grind wasn't able to bring out the full flavor when using a french press. Aeropress with a more fine grind was more flavorful
GRIND #6. 16:1 RATIO. 4 1/2 STARS
Worst coffee I've ever had can I get a refund or different bag?
It was delicious with nice layers of flavor.
It was “okay”. Has an after taste, I’m thinking is the hazelnut.
Loved it! It's not as dark as I typically like my coffee (hence 4 stars), but I definitely appreciate that you can taste the chocolate and hazelnut tones.
I’d like a bit more “punch”.
Too bright for my liking, I taste more lemon than chocolate
Good coffee, a little too bright/acidic for my tastes
This coffee was very weak. It did not have a bold enough taste for my liking. I brewed it in a Chemex as well as a drip machine. Neither produced an enjoyable taste. I would like something stronger and bolder tasting.
We enjoyed these beans as they had a nice flavor and mouth feel. We would order this again.
My settings call for dark roast. This is a pretty light roast for my taste. I'm not a big fan of this one
Liked flavors of hazelnut and chocolate, slightly more acidic than I prefer. Broke my soymilk every time no matter the temp
Aroma didn’t match the taste as fully. Would look for something a little fuller in flavor/richness.
The coffee was pretty good. I have only made one batch, so I need a few more tries before I really know how it tastes.
Great balanced coffee. Great flavor profile.
Meh. Bitter and uninspiring.
Not what I would have chosen myself, so it was a nice surprise to get such a nice cup. I'd prefer more acidity; the tasting notes were spot on
It was a delicious treat, brewed well. Looked forward to it every morning
This coffee worked great for both pour over and espresso. Very bright flavor with minimal bitterness. We loved it.
Really fabulous aroma while percolating. Very smooth. Very enjoyable
Good but a little bit bright. Might be that I haven't dialed in my brewing method yet.
This coffee is very flavorful and smooth. (easy to drink)
Liked that one very much.
Loved this coffee.
Nice and light, good for a cold brew
A very safe coffee.
This was great!
Liked the flavor but it was a bit more chocolatey and
hazelnut than I would have preferred. Still a great option to kick things off with.
It’s okay, it’s not as coffee flavored as I’d like the softer side maybe the chocolate comes out too much
Great medium / full-bodied roast. brewed both in chemex and aeropress and enjoyed the nuances. I am generally more inclined to less rich/chocolately notes, but enjoyed this nonetheless.
Great. Mild, earthy. Not bitter at all. Perfect!!
Loved it! Perfect roast level with unique flavors!
pretty good, although I have been enjoying fruitier, light roast, more acidic coffees lately. would like to try darker/bolder coffees as winter comes.
It was alright. Would prefer something a bit bolder next time, and maybe frutier as well.
Best dark roast ever
Very nice on the chemex or the v60 when you get the grind dialed in right. The chocolate and nut notes are lovely.
Loved the chocolatey-ness. Wasn’t a big fan of the nuttiness but I still am enjoying every cup of it. I like it better aeropressed than pour over
Very disappointing lacked any distinctive flavors and very bitter. Adjusting grind level did not make a difference.
This coffee is a pleasant and satisfying medium roast. I really did notice the subtle chocolate taste.
It was really smooth and my wife even liked it black!
Smell really good,
Nice rich, light coffee
Great on French press
Very good flavor. Very light aroma. Very smooth taste. Very very very. ;-) I like it!
Olympia Coffee Morning Sun
Intensely acidic, oily, dark notes
Felt the caffeine quite strongly
Roasty dark chocolate, rich and heavy
Strong/burnt after taste
Felt need to brush teeth after drinking
This is a meta review because we (4 of us) drank this coffee two days in a row in order to compile this review.
This is a solid cup of coffee. Definitely full-bodied and dark, but without heavy oil. While there is a hint of chocolate, it's not over-bearing. You can definitely taste the hazelnut. I'm happy to have tried it.
Love the fragrance and how rich it is
Pleasant and smooth roast.
A little dark and one dimensional
NOT "Chocolate" or "Hazelnut" or "Full Bodied".
More like "Peas" and "Plants" and "Light".
Only drinking it because I paid for it.
Smooth tasting, not real strong but a good coffee.
Very very good. Has a long lasting after taste but it's quite pleasant.
Great morning coffee. First time I ground in an antique hand grinder that ground too coarse so it was a bit sour. Used a finer grind next time and it was outstanding. Brewed in a Redline Mk 1
Great coffee. I’ll reorder this one
Tasted really good. Would like to try a lighter roast to see which one I prefer.
Unbelievable on the Chemex. Incredible flavor profile.
Bright. Solid weekday morning sipper.
It was absolutely delicious
Love the full mouthfeel and the rich flavors.
Michael thought this was bright, full-bodied, and chocolatey. Good stuff.
Pretty nutty flavor, gives good aromatic smell after brewing it in auto drip
Nothing special but still a good cuppa in the morning.
Wouldn't mind it as an every day cup; I loved the sinfully rich notes, made it taste like I was having a bit o' dessert for breakfast. There were moments where the aftertaste was pointier/punchier bean than I like. Like a "HARRGH, here is your punishment for drinking this good stuff!"
Somewhat high acidity but still nice
I think it’s a good cup of coffee, but it’s not as full as I typically like my coffees. The flavor was muted unless I increased the amount of coffee in my aeropress.
We LOVED this coffee and wouldn't mind if you decided to send it again at some point in our subscription. Thanks!
Great balanced flavor with a big bitter flavor more chocolate than burnt
This is a lovely coffee. The bag smelled amazing when it arrived in the mail. Really enjoy the delicateness this coffee maintains while being full bodied with nuttiness, chocolate notes and a little bit of fruitiness.
Very good, solid coffee.
Took a bit long for delivery, though.
