I love this dark bold roast for early mornings.
I learned about First Ascent coffee while listening to the Gear 30 podcast (episode 158 if you are interested). Sam Higby was awesome. I learned a ton about the roasting and brewing processes, and even coffee tasting. Sam was so impressive that I ordered a bag of Dawn Patrol before the podcast had ended! I haven’t yet invested in a grinder, so I ordered my coffee ground (which Sam convinced me is ok). I chose the espresso grind to use in my espresso maker. My order arrived quickly and was perfectly ground. It smelled fantastic and I brewed a cup right away. I’m no expert, but I could pick up on the subtle tasting notes that Sam described in the podcast. It blew away my usual espresso roast. I drink several cups a day, so I burned through the bag in about a week. The coffee remained fresh in the resealable bag that it comes in. I will definitely order again!
A perfect roast! Dawn Patrol gets me moving every morning. I love the flavor. Everyone I share it with loves it as well!
The quality and consistency is what brings me back to First Assent.
Great coffee flavor. My daughter’s go to every morning! Thanks for providing consistent product every time it comes to her mailbox!
I purchased a subscription for my daughter and son-in-law for Christmas. They receive coffee each month and will now only drink First Ascent! They started with Hero Day and went to Dawn Patrol. Since COVID, my daughter has worked from home. What a treat to have this excellent coffee whenever she needs it. Thanks!
Had some Dawn Patrol before my dawn patrol in RMNP last weekend.
really good stuff! great coffee, great service
An extraordinary roast & blend Excellent coffee. Not too dark and certainly not too light. Nice finish. Very drinkable.
Excellent Coffee The Dawn Patrol is my new favorite. Awesome roast flavor without tasting burnt. It definitely makes early starts way more pleasant.
Bold and beautiful Dawn patrol blend Love this coffee. Consistently outstanding roast. Rich flavor without any hint of over roasting.
Great dark roast This dark roast is great. I love it so much I gave several bags out as Christmas presents this year.
Well, Sam, I had the audacity to send this to a good friend who is your prototypical Portland Oregon coffee connoisseur and snob. SHE LOVED IT! Hahaha, well done, corruption by kindness.
New Purchase - Dark Roast Loving the new Dark Roast we ordered.
Strong but not bitter I noticed not only a stronger flavor but maybe a stronger buzz? Either way it's smooth and not bitter which my ideal. Thanks!
Another Perfect Batch I have yet to open a bag of First Ascent Coffee that isn't as good as the first bag I ever had. The consistency and quality set First Ascent far above the rest.
Five Stars! Awesome coffee!
Great new strong roast blend coffee!!
Great coffee! Rich and flavorful, definitely stands out from the crowd.
Dawn Patrol Blend is my favorite coffee. Had it for the first time a few weeks back in CB. Super smooth with such great taste. I'm hooked!
