Great flavor!! Be great for camping without having to pack the coffee pot. Definitely impressed!!

Package arrived open, only received the brown sample. Sent note to company, but no response.
Super enjoyed the Dawn Patrol on a chilly fall morning. After trying various instant coffees, this one had a nice balance that was neither weak nor burnt/overdone. Will be filling the pack and travel bags with these!!
I grew up drinking instant coffee in Asia. And I have also worked for a global specialty coffee company that also has instant coffee offerings. On receiving the First Ascent instant coffee sample pack, I did a taste test with what I am used to drinking. I was blown away by First Ascent instant coffee - it tasted like freshly brewed instant coffee. Another upside - you can mix it with cold water (not possible with the competitors). I am a fan and believer!
I love to have these take and carry packets to make coffee on the go. very convenient. I love the rich taste of each. I also love supporting a company in my home state of Colorado!
thank you for the sample pack. it's true what they say, your coffee does not taste like traditional instant. it's much better! my favorite was the Ethiopian. i will be ordering more soon. thanks again keep up the good work.
Me and my Son Billy in Negril, Jamaica.
Ordered the instant coffee sampler and was impressed. The taste was good and surprisingly strong. Will definitely be stocking up for our next backcountry trip.
Your coffee rocks!
Good stuff! Looking forward to more, mountain mornings with this.
Especially loved the Ethiopian blend. Do you have an outlet in Santa Fe that sells your coffees? Kaune’s Supermarket would be a great place. Also La Montañita Food Co-op. They both sell Mount Hagen instant coffee. Good, too, but preferred yours!
Very good tasting coffees and well differenciated the 3 roasts profiles as advertised. Honestly much better than what I expected, they truly taste like specialty coffee made either with an aeropress or kalita!
Best instant coffee ever. I like the medium roast. Worth the price.
Liked getting the variety sample pack to try the different coffees.
We were looking for a good instant coffee to take on overnight backpacking trips. All three of these are amazing! I’ve had them hot and iced, both are great. Seriously the best instant coffee I’ve ever had. It is definitely more expensive than some other instant coffees, but worth every penny!
As a fair-weather, car camper, I typically pack my Aeropress and all the fixin's without worrying about all the weight that goes with it. This year I've been getting more and more into bikepacking, and need to shed the weight without shedding the quality! I'm definitely not a coffee connoisseur, but I know I don't want to waste my tastebuds on crappy coffee. I knew that I needed a lighter, more transportable coffee for my bike trips. I ordered the sample pack and was VERY PLEASANTLY surprised! So far, I've only had the Dawn Patrol and Ethiopian, and they're both excellent. I'm DEFINITLY ordering more for the summer trips on my agenda. Next stop, Denali National Park!
This is my Son William Jackson Paris. I traveled to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, to celebrate my 45th birthday, and nine months later Billy arrived. This boy is fearless. We love your coffee.
A coworker introduced me to this coffee. At first I was like...instant coffee?!?!....yuck. but then he made me a cup and I'm like...OHHH YEAH!!! Smooth with no bitter finish. I usually have coffee with cream and sweetener but I don't need it with this coffee. It's the only coffee I found that is actually enjoyable to drink black. I'm hooked. What would make it better? Maybe a vanilla bean...my favorite is the ethiopian blend...YUM-MY!
Hit the spot during a cold day on the slopes! Great tasting, will be buying again. Lightweight, easy to carry.
I’m retired, and riding bikes to coffee is always fun. We decided to stop at a park and try the Dawn Patrol and Ethiopian coffee using my Jetboil stove. My buddy was skeptical. After his first sip, his reaction told the story. Both of us agreed this coffee was the best instant we’ve ever tried. I immediately ordered a bulk bag of each to enjoy on our bike rides, as well as our upcoming bike tour. My buddy will no longer be carrying his fancy coffee press on our tours!
The sample pack is great, allowing you to try before deciding what to buy. Coffee tastes are highly subjective. But my take on each of the coffees in the sample pack is: 1) Dawn Patrol Blend: to me, it had some bitterness at the front and back of the taste, but the middle lingering in the mouth was good. 2) Hero Day Blend: to me, it has a full bodied satisfying flavor, with a slight bitter ending. And 3) Ethiopia: to me, had no strong bitterness, and was generally satisfying taste, which I would describe as medium body.
Your coffees are the best. I have traveled all over and never found a smoother, tastier quality coffee. I tell everyone I meet about it. Everyone who samples it instantly falls in love with it. The best.
I've tried the others...but First Ascent is the pinnacle! Love the flavor and boldness of both the Hero Day and Dawn Patrol. Dawn Patrol is especially fitting as my running group Team0530 likes to start at... 0530. Great coffee!
