Great coffee for espresso or manual brews. It never disappoints!
5 pounds of pure greatness - also grinded perfectly for our Moka Pot stovetop morning ritual
Delicious. Almost as good as the Italian roast which was probably the best coffee I’ve ever bought she of on a small bean farm in Hawaii
My first purchase from you was Morning Ride, great coffee. Been trying your other blends and really like everything I have purchased. So when I need more thought I would come back to my original favorite.
Amazon Trail coffee is great for espresso. Been getting it for a couple years. Really enjoy it.
I’m writing this review in response to your monthly e mail request to review my subscription of the same coffee. It still tastes great.
Best coffee I’ve had in a long time. Aces!!!
We have found the FTO Morning Ride blend to work perfectly in our ECM Synchronika machine w E61 group head. Excellent crema. Smooth flavor, never bitter. Each bag takes a small amount of tweaking to achieve 21 grams grounds and 45 -50 cc out in about 34 seconds (4 second pre-infusion). The attached photo is of a double obviously, so the numbers different (17 grams ground and 35-40 cc out). This is smooth tasting. Great for latte's or other milk based drinks, as well as straight shots. It is a quite forgiving roast too, so even if my shots are too fast or too slow, the flavor profile remains very good. I get no bitterness even if slow. Enjoy!
I used it to make a coffee blonde ale. The beer turned out great
Great coffee! We get whole bean for espresso and pour overs. Quick shipments too for our online orders.
Amazing coffee and flavor!!
We love the FTO Morning Ride blend using it several times per day in our nice ECM Synchronika espresso machine. It is a nice medium roast and always yields smooth tasting shots, never bitter, even if my grind is off a bit. I would say it is quite forgiving in that regard. I often use a precise scale to weight both the grounds from our mini-Mazzer grinder and measure the output from the E61 group head. Each batch seems slightly different, yet it does not take long to dial it in. The crema is good to very good. I think its best attribute, beyond smooth taste, is being forgiving. If my triple shots (21.0 grams) produce an output of 45-60 grams over 34 seconds (4 second pre-infusion) it remains smooth, not bitter. (For reference, I aim for 50 grams out, from 21.0 grams of ground Morning Ride, over 34 seconds) We have tried a lot of espresso blends from all over. Though there are a few others that rival or exceed Morning Ride in taste or crema, they are priced significantly higher. At this point in time, we see no need to pursue anything else. Very highly recommended!
I have tried Morning Ride, Kona and now Guatemala, all excellent. Nice to be able to switch off time to time.
It is perfectly roasted and delicious
Best coffee ☕️ I have ever tasted!
This is a wonderful coffee hence the 5 lb bag!!!
I haven't tried it yet but the packaging looks great!
Perfect for pour overs! Whole bean Guatemala.
Delicious coffee! Very happy with my purchase.
It’s our 4th or 5th giant bag of Ethiopian and we’re still loving it as much as the first!
I have been drinking Cycle Town coffee for a couple of years on a daily basis. You can't go wrong no matter which flavor you choose.
Cycle Town Amazon Trail 5lb. Bags has been my go to for making espresso coffee.
We are enjoying our second 5-pound bag of the Pearl District beans. We like the fact that the beans are fair trade and the company is located just north of California. The subscription plan is working out. Our bean supply is replenished just before we run out!
The coffee choices at my local super market were really limited, not that tasty, and still quite expensive. I wanted something better, but didn't have time to run out to a specialty shop every week just to buy beans. What to do...? Enter Portland's own CycleTown Coffee Roasters subscription service! The Amazon Trail coffee is delicious, shows up in my mailbox, and doesn't cost more than the grocery store brands -- love it!
Best coffee beans ever, consistently. We order 5 lb bags on subscription.
Makes great espresso / flavor!
So good! Our favorite so far. Super daily drinker
It is my go to coffee, it has great flavor and is well balanced.
I tried this coffee in a restaurant and just had to have it at home. This coffee is the best!!
Second shipment from you. I have three different coffees, and make my own blend, by grinding them together. So far so GOOD.
Great coffee for pour overs!
Best coffee ever
This is my second purchase of the Guatemala for the workplace. I'm in charge of what I'll call our "coffee program" and this coffee has been able to satisfy a wide variety of tastes. Everyone always comments of the great scent coming from our office kitchen when a post is brewing. The coffee is essentially as described on the website, light roast with some milk chocolate sweetness. It's also easy to drink and enjoy!
Makes a fantastic cup of coffee. Perfect middle between too dark and too mild!
After trying many famous brand and small roast coffees, Cycle Town turned out to be my favorite. The amazon is a nice dark coffee with a smooth rich finish. This coffee is reasonably priced and Cycle Town has excellent customer service, also I love riding bikes and great coffee, so this was a perfect match.
Nice lighter roast. No bitterness at all, and tastes great. And the bonus is that it really gets you rolling. Definitely no shortage of caffeine.
Have combined both bags, plus some Dunkins beans, and came up with my own blend. So far we luv it, looking forward to my son-inlaws, gift of it also.
My order was shipped relatively fast and coffee came freshly roasted and has been wonderful to use as drip or pour over! 5 lb bag was a significant savings over other roasters I have used without compromising quality. Will definitely be ordering again.
Best tasting coffee ☕️
Quick delivery and great tasting coffee.
Best coffee ☕️ we have ever had! We enjoy it so much that we buy it in the 5 lb. Bags!
Highest quality coffee at this price point that I’ve found to date. Awesome stuff!
Amazon Trail coffee is great. A friend got me some and I have been enjoying it ever since.
Incredibly good coffee

Typically, I don't buy dark roast coffees. But at the price this was offered, and it being a Sumatra coffee, I had try it. Bought two five (5) pound bags. It's a very good coffee, at least for me. Very smooth. Will definitely buy it again, especially if it appears in a medium roast.
Great coffee, morning ride has become my favorite. Tried a few of your other coffees, which were good, but still like morning ride the best.
My SECOND 5 lb. Bag... My daily brew!
Kona blend excellent for espresso! Arrived on time in a nice 5 lb bag. Will buy again
Tasted this coffee at a coffee shop in Oregon this summer. We both said it is the best coffee we have ever tasted. We bought a 5 pound bag from the restaurant. Now we will be ordering it from you in the 5 pound bags so we will never run out of the most delicious coffee ever!
Really nice coffee at a great price. That’s what comes should be
Nice flavor profile. A bit meatier roast than I usually go for but nice all the same. Bought it as a go to at the house in the 5 LB version. Usually run it through a chemex or aero press and it responds well. It does well in an icedAmericano in the afternoon. Will try them again.
I'm a huge fan of coffee and this is some of the best ever!!
Ordered a 5 pound bag at a 30% discount. Coffee is smooth and tasty, none of the burnt flavor you get from big box store beans (you know who I'm talking about). Will definitely order again.
Love this coffee. Our daily “go to”.
This is an absolutely delicious daily drinker for us!
Good value for an above average coffee bean
What a sight to see this plump bag of rich, oily beans arrive on my doorstep. Amazon Trail is rich and deep flavored; strong and mellow. It's a beautiful, nuanced cup that I spring out of bed for each morning.
Morning Ride Coffee...Came across a great deal on Facebook for big discount...it's very good...with coffee being more and more expensive...to find a good deal on good coffee is a find...nice smooth drink..absolutely no bitterness...
Great coffee with fast shipping.......
Sometimes beautiful packaging is used to mask an inferior product. This is not the case with my first experience with your coffee. I love this ft/organic dark roast. I will be ordering again for sure. Thanks so much.
I placed my first order about a week ago after I spoke to Darin. He was kind enough to take the time to explain the various roasts and what I may like based on our discussion. I ordered a 5lb bag and when it arrived he had thrown in a few sample bags, which is a great way to taste before you buy, or buy the sample packs and try before you buy in larger quantities. So far Cycle Town is 2-2, batting 1.000 with Morning Ride and Cafe Campanella. Can't wait to try the next roast.
I mean, it is a 5 pound bag of coffee. That alone warrants 5 stars. But seriously, I'll be interested to try more of the roasts in the future.
Deep flavors softly presented.
The coffee, Caffee Campanella, was fresh enough it seemed, and certainly the service was very excellent! Had the package like the next day or two, really fast! The taste to my palate was nothing particularly memorable, but it was good as far as it went. I am glad I got 5 pounds - I like coffee! - and the introductory price was great. To my tastes, the coffee itself was OK. Perhaps a different blend/roast would be better.
The coffee is amazing. I order 5pd bag every few months.
I've had a lot of coffee, but the Morning ride is the best I've had, ever.
Great coffee nice and smooth with no bitterness.
I'm not a big bean buyer, but have tried a few different whole beans over the years. This is probably the best one I've had, without exaggeration. It's very smooth.
needed more of this delicious coffee, and the 5 pound bag did the trick.
Love the coffee and the service is excellent!!!
Great flavor and aroma!
We got hooked on the Powell Butte blend after getting some from growers outlet. It's really good, and reasonably priced. Shipping is always quick.
Really love this coffee, it has the bold bright flavor I love, what also make this a winner for me is excellent service and price that Cycle Town Coffee Roasters have shown. I have a very good friend that I gave some as a gift, he tried it and just loves it, and this all he drinks now at home and at work.
good service and great coffee!
Amazon Trail FTO was a coffee that we received as a gift at Christmas. Since then we have continued to order it again and again in the 5pd bag.
Love the coffee and delivery service.
Love this coffee! Coolest bag on the market!!
I only buy the 5 lbs bags because 12oz is never enough!
