Do you like the taste of coffee? Do you like the smell of coffee? Do you want to know every scrap of information about where your coffee comes from and how it is grown? If you said yes to some or all of these things, you will love Counter Culture. After buying some of their beans at Whole Foods I wanted to find out more. Every variety of coffee they have (especially African varieties) are the best tasting coffees I've ever sipped. They do coffee cuppings where you can sample and talk about new roasts and coffee tours to see how they roast the beans. You can sign up for a subscription like I did to taste new varieties each month!

I enjoyed their free Friday tasting/cupping/tour. When I shared my home roasting interest with the company's founder, Brett Smith, he provided a tour of the roasters and gave me a sample of Perennial Blend green beans. Now I can compare my amateur efforts with the coffee I cupped and bought. It was a fun morning.

Outstanding fresh roasted coffee for the best flavor. The training they offer is helpful in the enjoyment of their product.

*This review is for the bagged coffee that I purchased.* I have tried four or five different types of Counter Culture coffee and my absolute favorite is the Hologram blend. I love a good medium-dark roast with strong chocolate notes, and Hologram is perfect. I recently visited the Sweet Donkey coffee shop in Roanoke, Virginia, because they serve Counter Culture coffee and the Hologram was delicious.

So glad that Durham has such a solid company that makes its coffee available throughout the city. Not only is the coffee fantastic, but the company is also committed to sustainability. I plan to buy their coffee on a regular basis for home brewing! I've tasted their coffee at several coffee shops around the city, and it's always been excellent.Went to cupping today and it was a good time! The staff was friendly and informative.

Went to the Friday tasting and it was a great experience. You really get to see how different roasts affect the bean. It's very educational and interesting. The only downside was that it was packed there, but hey, it was free.
