Let’s Brew It With These Coffee Brands in the World☕
Best Everyday Coffee ☕
What started as a flagship café and bakery in Philadelphia is now an award-winning nationwide coffee brand, and we think La Colombe’s Corsica Blend is the best expression of the brand’s deliciousness.
This blend is made from a mix of beans ethically sourced from Brazil, Colombia, Honduras, and Mexico, and is named after the ancient Mediterranean island. The Corsica blend has deep, dark, chocolaty notes and a robust flavor, making it a bold roast many love to drink first thing in the morning. Many reviewers specifically note that this is their “go-to morning blend” since it’s both strong and versatile. The cocoa notes in this blend make it pair especially nicely with milk or cream, although it can certainly stand alone and be sipped black.
- EXPERIENCE: The full taste and texture of our whole bean roasted coffee in one, 12 ounce box
- DARK ROAST: Enjoy this full-bodied, chocolaty, and roasty coffee for a fulfilling morning
- SPECIALTY NOTES: Each box of Corsica coffee contains notes of Baker’s Chocolate, Red Wine, and Spices
- BLEND INGREDIENTS: Crafted with specialty coffee beans from Brazil, Colombia, Honduras, and Mexico
- SUSTAINABLY SOURCED: Through packaging and environmentally-friendly practices we aim to eliminate waste and improve the well-being of coffee-growing communities
With consistently positive reviews, a bold yet balanced flavor, and a smooth chocolatey finish that will leave you wanting another sip, La Colombe’s Corsica blend gets our vote for best everyday coffee.
Best Dark Roast ☕
Death Wish Coffee — an upstate New York-based brand that claims to make the world’s strongest coffee — makes one mean, dark-roast whole-bean coffee (their signature blend).
Using sustainably sourced, perfectly roasted coffee beans to produce a bold, highly caffeinated coffee blend, Death Wish’s signature coffee has double the caffeine of your average cup of java, without being too acidic or harsh. We think they nailed it!
Made with a blend of ethically sourced beans, Death Wish Coffee is both fair-trade and USDA-Certified Organic. Described as a “high-octane” coffee with a high caffeine concentration, the brand swears this coffee will “bring you back from the nights you thought you’d never wake up from,” and reviewers seem to unanimously agree.
- Grind your coffee beans fresh each and every morning with Death Wish Coffee whole bean
- Our dark roast coffee is made with Arabica and Robusta beans to give you a fresh, strong cup of coffee to get your day started
- Death Wish Coffee is USDA Certified Organic and Fair Trade, giving you the highest-quality beans available
- Smooth, never bitter taste with flavor notes of cherry and chocolate
- 100% natural. We use no artificial additives or ingredients so you know exactly what’s going into each cup of coffee — just strong, high-quality coffee beans
Beyond being incredibly potent and highly caffeinated, this dark roast is well-balanced and flavorful, with sweet, nutty, chocolatey notes and a surprisingly smooth finish. We feel a disclaimer is in order here: This is not a blend for those who are sensitive to caffeine, but if you’re on the hunt for a dark roast that will wake you up, look no further.
Best Medium-Roast Coffee ☕
Bottom Line: This medium-roast blend gets a bright, fruity lift from Ethiopian natural coffee beans.
Many attribute Alfred Peet and his small coffee shop established in Berkeley, California in 1966 as the beginning of the craft-coffee movement in the United States. Peet’s Big Bang was introduced in 2016 as a special blend to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the coffee shop, but it has since garnered quite a loyal following and become one of the brand’s most popular varieties.
This blend is crafted from fair-trade, USDA-Certified Organic Latin American and East African beans and gets a bright, fruity lift from Ethiopian Super Natural coffee beans that are added to the mix.
- BIG BANG: A brilliant blend created to celebrate Alfred Peet and our 50th anniversary, featuring the exotic fruitiness of Ethiopian Super Natural. Flavor notes: Vibrant blast of tropical fruit in a smooth, medium style
- OBSESSED WITH FRESH: From the beginning, Peet’s Coffee has roasted the best coffee beans we can find with quality in mind. We also care for the communities that grow & harvest those beans, because coffee is better when it is grown & sourced responsibility
- BREW LIKE THE BEST: Brewing the best cup of coffee starts with finding your favorite roast or blend. Whole beans or ground coffee, dark, medium or light, single origin or a blend? Try a variety & find the best brew for the morning mug or afternoon pickup
- LIGHT, MEDIUM & DARK ROAST: Brew a pot of Peet’s ground or whole bean coffee in a blend & roast perfect for your tastes. Light roast coffees are mild & smooth, medium roast coffees are smooth & aromatic, while dark roast coffees are smoky & full bodied
Many reviewers call out lush, sweet, citrusy notes in this blend’s flavor and aroma.Roasted to medium-bodied perfection and then ground for user-friendly ease, Peet’s Big Bang easily gets our pick for best medium roast.
Best Mild Roast ☕
Beloved and best-selling Italian brand Lavazza gets our vote for Best Mild Roast thanks to their velvety Super Crema Espresso blend.
A mix of Arabica beans from Brazil and Colombia, and India and robusta beans from Indonesia and Vietnam, this blend is mild, creamy, and medium- to light-bodied. According to the brand’s 2016 Sustainability Report, the beans that Lavazza uses are all ethically sourced, USDA-certified organic, and Rainforest Alliance-certified.
Ideally, this blend would be finely ground, brewed as a traditional espresso, and served in a smaller format, but many reviewers coarse-grind this blend and brew it using their drip coffee maker or French press with great success. Most reviewers actually claim that they’ve switched to Lavazza for their everyday morning coffee from other more well-known American brands.
- Unique & Aromatic: Blended with a consistent velvety crema and persistent aroma. A perfect aromatic blend for a mild and creamy espresso.
- Aroma:- With an aroma level of 4 out of 5, its honey, almonds, and dried fruit notes make this a unique blend for your espresso.
- Origin:- A mix of Arabica varieties from Brazil, Colombia, and India and Robustas from Indonesia and Vietnam creates a mild and creamy medium espresso roast.
- Preparation:- Enjoy this aromatic blend by preparing it with an espresso machine.
- One 2.2 pound bag of Lavazza Super Crema Italian whole coffee beans
- Mild and creamy medium espresso roast with notes of hazelnuts and brown sugar
- Blended and roasted in Italy

Many reviewers pick up notes of honey, almonds, and dried fruit in the flavor profile with zero bitterness and low acidity. Whether you’re brewing espresso or traditional drip coffee, Lavazza’s Super Crema makes for a versatile, mild, and velvety-smooth roast.
Best for Iced Coffee ☕
If you’ve never had sweet, creamy, chicory-infused New Orleans-style iced coffee, it’s time to treat your taste buds and order this New Orleans Iced Kit from Blue Bottle Coffee. The brand may have been founded in Oakland, but this iced coffee will take you right on down to The Big Easy.
This all-inclusive kit comes with a pound of Blue Bottle’s signature coffee beans, an envelope of pre-measured, roasted French chicory, and a copy of their recipe scaled down to be user-friendly for home baristas. All you’ll need to add is milk, sweetener, ice, and a little bit of your time.
What’s the deal with chicory, you ask? Chicory root has been cultivated in Europe as a coffee substitute for centuries, and was first brought to the U.S. by the French during the Civil War. Though it’s naturally bitter in its raw form, chicory root can be baked, roasted, ground, and then used as an additive to add a rich and caramelized flavor to coffee and even beer.
- New Orleans-style iced coffee and chicory: There’s been a certain amount of clamoring — yes, clamoring! — for a way to make our New Orleans-style Iced Coffee at home.
- So, here we are: a kit! We’ll set you up with a pound of the coffee we use for our refreshing New Orleans-style Iced Coffee, an envelope of pre-measured, roasted French chicory, and a copy of the recipe we use — scaled for one pound of coffee.
