This rocking coffee has been one of our favorites for years. With Costa Rican, Sumatran and Kenyan coffees, this coffee is roasted to a perfect Full City roast. This means a full, medium-dark roasted coffee, not as dark as a typical French Roast. 100% Arabica beans.

After years of ordering coffee from Costa Rica I went in search of a blend that was similar. I found Cowboy Blend. As a mixture of beans with different roasting levels, it compares favorably with what I got from Costa Rica. The coffee is rich, dark, and powerful. If you want coffee with real character, Cowboy Blend is a good choice. I brew it at 170 degrees to avoid the acidic aspect resulting from boiling water. The brew lasts in the refrigerator for up to a week, though there is a gradual loss in the complex flavors. It is best just after steeping for 10 minutes. I use a french press and then triple filter the brew.

For many years I got my coffee directly from Costa Rica. When my source became unavailable, I went looking for an equivalent coffee. I settled on White Cloud Cowboy Blend. If my Costa RIcan is a 10, Cowboy Blend is 8.75. It is made from three different beans, each roasted to a different darkness. I grind the beans and then make the coffee. I get a lot of complements on my coffee. It is well worth a try.

Cowboy Blend is a complex of three coffees. The mixture puts it in the class of the famous Costa Rican blends. Cowboy Blend is a sophisticated coffee that meets the demanding expectations of the knowledgable coffee lover. Rich, dark, complex without being a French roast. When brewed with cold water it is soft with deep richness. When brewed at 170 degrees, it is powerful and slightly aggressive. I recommend that it never be brewed with boiling water as this will make it acidic.

Absolute best coffee available. I have Costa Rica (from C R) and Blue Mt. Jamaican but I like Cowboy Blend!

We love White Cloud coffee and Cowboy Blend is our best ever. I see no need to use any other coffee, ever.

A finer coffee isn't available, anywhere. I have travelled in many states and tried to satisfy my coffee hunger many times. A lot of "Gourmet" shops. Weak burnt flavor, not good smooth coffee.
Now I take it with me.

I just got back from a trip to Pa. I sent CowBoy Blend ahead of me so I wouldn't have to drink Robusta !
Since the mid 1980's I have tried many different blends and roasts from WCM as well as other companies and always came back to CowBoy Blend.
I am so spoiled.
