Bistro Blend ® Coffee

(13 customer reviews)


Originally developed for a Portland chef, Bistro has long been one of our most popular coffees.


Product Description

Way back in 1978 a local chef asked me to come up with a unique blend of beans. He wanted a rich after dinner coffee with just a hint of dark roast flavor. I came up with this beautiful blend of South American and African coffees with a bit of dark roasted beans thrown in. Coffee lovers throughout Portland have made it one of our most popular coffees.

    My favorite coffee ever!
    I discovered it while enjoying a wonderful breakfast at the John Street Cafe in North Portland. It is full bodied, yet extremely smooth and not acidic. I discovered it three years ago and it has withstood the test of time. I now have it shipped back to my home in Western Massachusetts.

    Bistro Blend is the greatest coffee blend known to mankind due to its boldness and richness..

    Found Kobos coffee at a small coffee shop (Vine Expresso) in Calistoga, CA. One sip of Bistro Blend and I was hooked. That was 4 years ago and even though I try other coffee from Kobos folks I prefer Bistro. Great flavor (not burnt), mild acid.

    This is the best blend anywhere, ever! We discovered it at a small coffee cafe in Tillamook, Oregon several years ago. And have been ordering directly from Kobos ever since. Delightful, smooth, with a bit of caramel to the taste. You will love it!

    I absolutely LOVE this espresso! It does make great creama! I first had this coffee at Java Rock Espresso, in Terrebonnne, OR. I was able to buy a lb. of the beans from them a few times, but we only get over to that area every few months and I finally looked on line for Kobos coffee. The only thing is that I prefer beans to having it ground, but I wasn’t given an option. Is this possible? Thanks for a great coffee!!

    I’ve tasted this at restaurants I’ve dined at in Portland. It compliments sweet decadent chocolate desserts and holds its own in coffee drinks.

    One of the best; smooth and complex, a treat for a jaded coffee palette.
