My New Favorite Coffee
First off, one of the best coffee roasters/suppliers in my experience has been Hunter Bay.  I've been using them for years.  Although it's Moose Droolnot been exclusively.  I venture out looking for different kinds of coffee, but I always find myself coming back to Hunter Bay.  These guys know coffee!  The packaging is perfect; the shipping is prompt; and the customer service communication is unmatched.  You'd think I'm being paid to brag on them, but when I encounter such an outstanding vendor I feel as compelled to spread the word just as much as I feel the need to warn others of those who fall short.
 
A self-proclaimed coffee connoisseur, I don't like flavored coffee.  I prefer darker roast but not scorched as is the case for some better known coffee distributors.  I go through about 2 pounds of coffee per month.
 
For quite some time my favorite roast/blend has been Hunter Bay's Moose Drool Organic blend.  Yes it's inspired by Big Sky Brewing Co.'sSmoke Jumper beer of the same name.  No, the coffee doesn't taste like beer.  But it probably is just as robust and distinct.
 
Recently, I decided to venture out and try something different.  Hunter Bay keeps touting their new blend, Smoke Jumper.  Advertised as a "cigar coffee blend", it sounded intriguing.  I must say, Smoke Jumper rivals Moose Drool and may very well usurp the later as my favorite coffee.
 
So if you're into coffee and appreciate dark or robust blends, give one of these a try.
