BIG CITY COFFEE Review and Giveaway


Thanks to Stephan at Big City Coffee for sending me some yummy coffees to sample for this review and giveaway!

Third-party certification organizations verify that organic farmers abide by the law.

I tried:Chickadee Brand New Orleans Organic Coffee
Website description: Traditional New Orleans roast with chickory. Delicate undertones of chocolate and pecan give this organic gourmet coffee a luxurious body and delightful aroma. We hand select these beans and lovingly artisan roast them in small batches weekly.

I thought that it was a very smooth, yummy coffee. I loved the smell. I didn't realize that there was chocolate in it until I read the description! Perfect coffee to serve with dessert!

Hi Fi Roasted Organic Coffee

Website description: This mellow blend delivers a flavor and aroma that will have you snapping your fingers and movin' to the groove. The lightly spiced African beans are nicely balanced by the mild Latins. If this was a Martini, it would be shaken, not stirred. We hand select these beans and lovingly artisan roast them in small batches weekly.

  • Smooth Blend of 5-Star Latin and African Gourmet Beans

  • Certified Organic, Fair Trade Coffee

  • 12 oz Whole Bean Roasted & Packed Fresh to order

I could not stop smelling the fresh coffee grounds! I'm wondering if you get caffeine in your system by just smelling? I loved the uniqueness of this coffee. This would be great to drink anytime especially in the afternoon when you might need a little more pep to get you through the rest of your day!

Tiki Club Organic Island Blend Coffee

Website description: Tiki Club Coffee is a rich, gourmet blend of historic arabicas in the legendary tradition of the finest Mocha-Java. Estate beans from Mokka

and Sumatra give this exciting blend it's heady bouquet, chocolaty finish and classic hints of spice and caramel. We hand select these beans and lovingly artisan roast them in small batches weekly.


  • Full Bodied Island Blend

  • Organic, Fair Trade Roasted Whole Bean Coffee

  • Exotic Rare Blend of Gourmet Sumatra and Javas

  • 12 oz Whole Bean Roasted & Packed Fresh to Order


I love Sumatra blends. This was probably my favorite of all that I sampled. This is what I want to grab first thing in the morning. I brewed it in my Keurig single cup brewer! I look forward in using it in my Aero Press.
