My wife and I drink a lot of coffee, and the Lumberjack is some of the richest, freshest coffee beans we’ve encountered. Very highly recommended!
Great roast. My wife and I have been drinking Equal Exchange Body Mind and Soul for a few years, but decided to try this, and I prefer it. I am not qualified to say exactly why, but I can say that we drank a dark roast for many years, then switched to a lighter roast a few years ago, and this fits into that category in my view, a medium roast, full of flavor.
Quality, clean coffee. Definitely amazing. Totally worth it to buy clean coffee that is free of all the preservatives and garbage. Look no further. Great company with great values!
The lumberjack coffee is awesome! And so was everything else I got
Why It's Awesome
Wild Coffee beans are the cleanest, most Wild bean we could find out of dozens of coffees we tested. These select Premium Grade "1" beans are single-origin and sourced from small farmers.
Wild Coffee beans are fresh roasted in small batches 2-4 times a month. The fresh roasted smell is intoxicating.

Chemex: 6 tbsp of coarse ground coffee to 700 grams of water.
Always Fair Prices for Farmers
Practices like fair trade and direct trade ensures the origin of the product as well as fair pay to farmer for their crops.
Farmers that grow Fair Trade coffee receive a fair price, and their local community benefits as well.
Fair Trade = Empowerment
When it comes to producing Fair Trade products, the rigorous standards give farmers and workers a voice. Fair Trade empowers people to make choices for the good of themselves and their community, regardless of their gender, status, position in society, or position on the globe.
Coffee - Past and Present
Soldiers who were craving coffee and couldn't get it during the American Civil War, tried roasting sweet potatoes and corn to make a similar beverage. It obviously didn't become a very popular choice. Nothing is quite like coffee!
After crude oil, coffee is the most sought after commodity in the world. Worldwide, coffee is worth over $100 billion. That puts it ahead of commodities like natural gas, gold, sugar, and corn.

Wild Coffee FAQ's
Keep it stored away from light and heat in an air tight container. Don't refrigerate your beans and only freeze your beans if you don't plan on using them soon. Then make sure you triple wrap them.
The darker the roast, the more you will see the shiny coffee oils on the exterior of the beans. This is a sign of freshness as most mass-produced coffee, because it is stale, does not have these yummy coffee oils still on the beans because they have dried out. The more you roast a coffee bean, the more you draw out the coffee oils that are inside the bean. Lighter roasts still have the oils inside the beans, which makes them look "dry," while the darker roasts will shimmer with wonderful shiny coffee oils on their exterior.
We don't... in a lab, that is. Our beans are fresh roasted locally in Austin, Texas by an organic coffee roaster and are sourced fair trade and single-origin. They are also mostly wet processed (Sidamo is dry process on raised beds). In our extensive human tests, mold or toxins have never been an issue with our bean, even when we've tested consuming beans that were stored for 2 months in the cabinet!
Yea... we've struggled with this one. Our roaster has started roasting Peru Light closer to a medium because we have found that it just tastes so much better and brings out so much more of the delicious characteristics of the Peru bean.
We are actually on the hunt to find a really great bean to light roast. Until then, Peru Light is more like "Peru Light Medium."
All Wild Coffee and Wild Cold Brew products are fresh roasted each Monday morning. We pick them up from the roaster Wednesdays (this gives the coffee a day to "rest" as it needs to) and send out packages that afternoon and Thursday!
Yes, but not coffee products. Because freshness is an issue, we don't ship Wild Coffee or Wild Cold Brew outside of the US.
