Black & White Coffee

(26 customer reviews)


A truly unique blend consisting of three different coffees in three different roasts.


Product Description

One of our Top 10 best selling coffees.

In the mid 1980’s a prominent Portland chef asked me to develop a special blend for his restaurant. He suggested that one of the coffees be roasted very light. I put the light roast together with a regular-roast Central American and some dark-roasted espresso. A blend of three different coffees in three different roasts. It’s the light roast which gives this unique blend its classic aroma and flavor. Think vanilla and chocolate chip cookies! (Kosher.)

  1. goldenchinookcoffee

    A wonderful all day coffee. This is the favorite drip coffee in our coffee shop.

  2. Terry Marak (verified owner)

    This my favorite coffee. The different beans in Black and White give a great taste. I highly recommend it.

  3. Patricia Neson (verified owner)

    This and Kenyan are my two favorites. It is just the right blend that my husband, who likes a bold taste, and I, who likes a lighter taste, have agreed on this being our daily coffee blend.

  4. Kathleen Lankford (verified owner)

    This is by far my favorite flavor. I use whole bean & grind it fresh each morning. The smell wakes everyone up with smiling faces. I’ve been drinking Kobos coffee for years now & won’t try any other company.

  5. Lila J Eells (verified owner)

    the very best coffee around by far. I get compliments on it all the time . Everybody asks what brand of coffee is this.

  6. Edie Polson (verified owner)

    This has been my favorite coffee since Kobos opened in 1972. And I mean my favorite , not just within Kobos but every other coffee I’ve ever bought anywhere!

  7. Kathleen Lankford (verified owner)

    My favorite coffee bean. The taste is exceptional and very smooth. I highly recommend this coffee to anyone.

    I have been drinking this coffee for years and I just love it. It is so smooth! I love to grind it fresh. It is just the best ever!

    big and punchy…like a 2 year old andalusian stallion…it hits the palate with a sift Kenyan-type feel…and then gives a nice kick…perfect for an early-mornign wake-up…

  10. Kathleen Parreira Lankford (verified owner)

    My ultimate favorite of all the blends. The smell in the morning puts a smile on my face & the taste makes me very happy. I enjoy relaxing in the morning with a good cup of coffee & Kobos NEVER disappoints.

    This one is new to me. Very good. Used to shop at kobos in Portland. So sad that it is gone. I am in L.A. area now but still love kobos.

  21. Pat (verified owner)

    One of my favorite kobos blends. Smooth and mellow.

  22. Pamela Hoskins (verified owner)

    We use Black and White almost exclusively at our office and at home here in West Virginia. We buy whole bean and grind fresh each pot. It is one of the smoothest coffees we have found. It doesn’t get bitter, even when reheated.

  23. Kathie Raisler (verified owner)

    Best coffee ever?

  24. Kathie R (verified owner)

    I echo everyone elses reviews. This is the best coffee ever. Don’t ever stop roasting!

  25. Pamela Hoskins (verified owner)

    I can’t count the number of pounds of Black and White that we have purchased over the last ? years for the office and for home. It is our #1 favorite. It is by far the smoothest coffee I have ever had and doesn’t get bitter like most coffees when reheated.

  26. Kathie R (verified owner)

    I buy this coffee 4 bags at a time. It is the best coffee ever. Don’t ever stop making this blend. Soooooo smoooooth!
