Many people preparing coffee using a regular old drip style brewer are loving our mixed roast blends (dark and light roasted beans together). A twist on our Mountain Harvest Blend, we first tried the “Avalanche” experimentally at the 2014 Bluegrass Festival here in Telluride and it was a winner! We take a medium roasted Brazil Cerrado and blend it 50/50 with our Black Magic. Lots of flavor, heavy body and a lingering aftertaste . Try it!

    My favorite Steaming Bean Coffee I’ve tried so far! I brew it in a French Press and find it to be just the right level of dark. No bitter after taste!

    Had my first cup of Avalanche blend at the Lumiere Hotel in Telluride. We brought home a small bag and gave it the French Press treatment. I don’t care for the bitter aftertaste in coffee and this blend is perfectly smooth. Should have brought home a bigger bag! Check it out!

    Recently ordered a 24 oz bag of the Avalanche blend and it is better than I remember! I posted a review back in August so this is a follow up. Such smoothness and flavor in a cup, the Avalanche blend might just be the perfect coffee! I will likely order more to keep the supply stocked as I ran out some months back. Avalanche blend gets a 6 star rating. Wishing the company much success in the years ahead.

    When I enjoy a cup (or 2 or 3) of this smooth, delicious blend, I close my eyes and reminisce about all my adventures in Telluride. It’s beauty is calling me…..

    I have bought coffee from Steaming Bean off and on for 5 years . I recently tried this blend for my wife who says this is the best and smoothest am blend she has ever drank . Dark roast can sometimes bother her stomach but this blend is the best of both worlds. The customer service is also the best !
    Thanks Steaming Bean

    Very good, smooth, no bitterness. Love the coffee, I want to try others from steaming bean but don’t want to leave this behind. Use in drip and works great

    In Telluride for ski season and visited the bean. Came home with Avalanche Blend and have kept ordering it. We live in North Carolina and keep importing from colorado. It is very nice and smooth. Really appreciate the blend.

    We bought this blend on recommendation from a barista in the store. It is perfect for our espresso maker. W love it in our lattes.

    I also first experienced Avalanche at the Luminere hotel in Telluride and have been ordering bag after bag ever since. Smooth and delicious !

      Thanks Nancy! That’s our choice for espresso too here at the roastery…low acid but full of flavor 🙂

    Got a small bag as a gift this last Christmas then ordered the mid size bag and just recently ordered the 5lb…needless to say we have found a house favorite in the Avalanche!!

    I have been buying this for my wife for couple of years . She is a coffee “snob” and absolutely loves this blend . Don’t stop making this or my marriage may be in trouble.

    • Mick Hill

      We’ll do our best! Don’t want to be a marriage-wrecker:)

    This is now my go-to coffee! Great bold flavor but so smooth. I can’t wait to visit, but for now, I’m glad I can order online!

    I first tasted this coffee while in Telluride for a wedding a year ago. I was amazed with the smooth yet bold flavor. There is no bitter after taste and I have fallen in love with Telluride Coffee Roasters Avalanch coffee. I have since purchased other flavors, as well. Black Magic is another favorite. My last order consisted of Brazil Carmo De Minas and I’m excited to taste it this weekend. I truly have never found a coffee as smooth yet bold as Telluride Coffee Roasters.

    • Mick Hill

      Thanks Lynn! Appreciate the kind words. Glad you enjoy it!
      Cheers – Mick

    This is by far my favorite coffee! An excellent blend that has a great flavor profile without being too bold. I used to be subscribed to a coffee service but as soon as I tried Telluride Coffee Roasters, I cancelled it and will now go through the joy of trying every one of their coffees! I appreciate the personalized thank you notes too!

    • Mick Hill

      Thank you Hector! Glad you are enjoying the coffees 🙂

    This roast is a perfect espresso blend for our home. My husband tends to react to coffees with too much acidity, and this is the most smooth and consistent blend we have found. The flavor is the right amount of bold, but at the same time lacks the often signature burn that you might get as a companion to that flavor. It is delicious.

    • Mick Hill

      Thanks Ellen. We like it too..both components are relatively low-grown coffees, Brazil and Sumatra, both low acid. We think it works well. Great for drip and French Press too

    Love this coffee. Smooth great way to start my day!!

  18. jamie urino (verified owner)

    We had this coffee in our room at the Lumiere in March. It is the MOST delicious coffee we have ever tasted. We’re hooked!!

    I love Telluride and one of the reasons is your coffee. Avalanche is my new favorite. it is dark and strong with a smooth aftertaste.

    • Mick Hill

      Thanks Diane! Glad you like it

    I tried your coffee during a recent visit to Telluride and I loved its taste and seems to not be bitter. I use an AeroPress and I’m hoping the grind I got will be right.

    • Mick Hill

      Thanks Colleen…what you ordered should be just right! But, as with most things coffee, it’s pretty subjective 🙂
