Our Coffee Reviews

Smooth Coffee Lovers

Over the last eight years, we've received literally hundreds of reviews, many of which are on Google Reviews.  I don't think you need to see them all, so I will post the last 50-100 or so below. You'll get the idea. I've also included a few antidotal humorous emails.

And if you feel like writing us a review, we'd really appreciate that! Why? Because reviews are a big deal for how well we rank on Screwgle.

If Screwgle isn't your thing, then just shoot me an email or go to our Contact Us page and I'll put your review down below. Thanks a ton everyone!

Decaf Better Than Regular

I was looking for a good tasting decaf dark coffee that I could brew at home. Lake City tastes better than many of the regular dark coffees out there. I am glad I found them.

Not Bitter but Great Taste

Seriously so good! We have tried many brands and I’m all about local. Love that it’s roasted and shipped same day. You can taste the freshness and the medium roast is just perfect. Not bitter but great taste.

Far Better Alternative to Black Rifle

Excellent coffee roaster, much better than what I was getting in the stores and a far better alternative to black rifle. Personalized service, fast efficient delivery, smooth excellent taste. Highly recommend.

2nd Order

I have just ordered my second batch of Russell and Alisha’s coffee beans having thoroughly enjoyed my first batch. Their website offers a wealth of information concerning coffee beans, equipment, and general hints on how to create a great cup of coffee. It isn’t that difficult given the quality of their coffee selections! I highly recommend any coffee lover give Lake City Coffee a try, you won’t regret your decision!

Espresso’s Thick Crema

I have just finished my 3rd bag of Majestic Medium and my second order has just arrived. With the exception of a single carafe of French press the beans were used exclusively for espresso. I switched from another source of beans and as such had to tweak my process. The results were well worth the change. Espresso from these beans has very thick crema and the aroma is perfectly matched by the taste. On taste alone the switch from previous source was justified. Supporting a small business with similar leanings is just a bonus.

Great Coffee & Great Service

I just left a large coffee subscription service provider and will never go back. You will not regret ordering from Lake City Coffee.

Very Impressed

Best cup of coffee I have had in a very long time! I am thoroughly impressed!

The X Factor of Green Beans

Because I was buying green beans (they store much longer) & as a somewhat skeptical customer I was really impressed with the flavor but also their willingness to share how they source & tediously test their beans with exacting standards. Their knowledge of this art is impressive & won over this customer.

Their “passion” for great coffee is obvious…rumor has it they even spent their honeymoon checking out coffee tree orchards…………..by day😉. Please don’t tell them i let that slip?  But try their beans, you won’t be disappointed.

Oh, one more thing. If you have never tried the X factor of roasting your own small batch. Some chilly Sunday morning take out your old cast iron skillet and try it. It’s fun, easy, fast, and like bread fresh from the oven compared to day old bread, just plain better.

I would add more but I have to go join my family before they finish off the whole pot without me.

Throw a rock hit a coffee shop

In a world infatuated with coffee, the Pacific NW where I live is at the top of the list. Throw a rock hit a coffee shop:) In other words, we have access to plenty of other coffee vendors. Located in gorgeous Coeur d’ Alene ID, Lake City Coffee stands out as a purveyor of truly delicious coffee beans.

Their secret? Well, for one thing how long they roast their beans. (Ask Russell he may just let you in on it.)

Best Whole Bean White Coffee

Russell and Alisha knock it out of the park with their roasts. Similar to many others, I’ve always had the typical burnt coffee from large corporation companies that clearly want to push product rather than take care of their customers. Lake City Coffee offers a wholesome and hands on approach while keeping their customers in mind.

On top of the freshest beans that taste wonderful, they also offer whole white beans. For those that have not had white coffee, do not confuse it with Flat White that you might find at a chain like Starbucks; it is instead a very light roasted bean that retains a high caffeine content and has a pleasant peanut butter aftertaste (don’t just take my word for it, try it yourself).  As a healthcare worker that works graveyard, their product is a godsend. My partner and I love doing a 50% white/ 50% white blend. Give it a try 🙂
