12 hand-crafted single-serve specialty instant coffee packets. Made one small batch at a time at our roastery in the heart of Crested Butte, Colorado (elevation 8,909 ft.)
Are you the type of coffee drinker who loves variety? Or maybe you are heading out with a posse, and you don't know what your friends prefer. This box contains 4 each of our Ethiopia (light roast), Hero Day (medium roast), and Dawn Patrol (dark roast) coffees. Sourced with the quality and roasted with the balance and precision you have come to know us for. Be ready for whatever adventure tomorrow morning may bring.
We start by sourcing specialty-grade coffees that are in season from small farms and co-ops. We roast it just like we roast all our coffees, striving to highlight natural flavors and sweetness. Finally, we brew for quality and proper extraction, making sure that the final result is balanced — it is neither bitter nor sour. A hand-crafted instant coffee that is lightweight, convenient, and delicious.
From Running the Grand Teton while guiding, to running the Teton Crest Trail, to guiding a 12-hour car-to-car ascent Mt. Moran, First Ascent Coffee was how each day started. It fueled my dreams. Thanks!
Seriously the best instant coffee out there! Most instant coffees have a weird, metallic taste that usually requires a bunch of sugar to hide. First Ascent's instant coffee tastes JUST like what I get out of a bag of their normal coffee, with no metallic taste or "film" that gives most instant coffees a weird texture feeling.
My normal method of consuming FA's instant coffee - hot or cold water with no sugar.
I have been loving the convenience of brining First Ascent instant to the crag and adding it to an iced water bottle on hot days for a tasty cold brew. So delicious no cream is needed!
