Dillanos Coffee

Dillanos Coffee Roasters began in 1992, and is based in Sumner, Washington. What began as a single coffee cart, has blossomed into a national, specialty coffee brand. From time to time over the past year, I’ve found a little surprise in my mailbox, a bag or two of Dillanos coffee. I have enjoyed each of their coffees, so it was only natural that I would reach out to them when looking for a roaster to help me celebrate reaching 20,000 Facebook fans. Not only did they heartily agree to provide 20 prizes to my readers, they have also provided a limited time discount to all of your, and they also sent me another bag of coffee to try.

Ending on October 1st, CoffeeNate visitors who use coupon code COFFEENATE at Dillanos.com, will enjoy an extra 20% discount!

Dillanos Coffee Review

dillanos coupon codeDillanos sent me a bag of their Kikai Peaberry coffee, which is part of their DCR line. A peaberry, refers to the shape of the coffee “bean”. Most coffee cherries produce two halves of a coffee bean, but a peaberry is a single piece. See the image, and you will notice the football shaped beans. The DCR line from Dillanos is comprised of limited, seasonal offerings, which have all been wonderful. While the coffee was complimentary, they never stipulated that it would be in exchange for a review, let alone a positive one.

The Kikai Peaberry is a light-medium roasted coffee from central Kenya. The coffee is processed via the washed method. I brewed this coffee via french press, as well as syphon. There wasn’t a greatly discernible difference between the two brewing methods. I always taste the coffee before reading the tasting notes provided by the roasting company. Sometimes my findings are similar, and other times not so much. This is a situation where my own tastes differed, which isn’t bad, but does demonstrate that much of the tasting of coffee is subjective. The tasting notes indicate “Grapefruit, Mandarin Orange, Golden Raisin, Juicy Body”. My personal experience was lemon zest and apricot, with a buttery mouth feel. The finish lingered on the tongue, and was just slightly tart.

In any event, this was an excellent coffee, which I would gladly drink each day. Some coffees are nice for a change of pace, but I would tire of them over an extended period of time. This coffee would retain its place in my daily regimen for quite some time.

I should also mention that I really love the fact that the roasted on date is stamped on the bag, as well as the name of the person who roasted the coffee. Not only does this indicate just how fresh your beans are, but also gives a nice touch to the product.

Nate

Nate is a special kind of coffee lover. He began drinking the same swill that most others do, but thought there must be something better out there. Sure enough, he was right, even more so than he ever dreamed possible. He soon found his way into the specialty coffee industry, and was tasting exceptional coffees from dozens of roasters from around the country. He is now committed to teaching others how they can appreciate coffee, and how they can make the best coffee in town and save money at the same time! Cheers c[_]
