I love the coffee and the online store makes getting it a breeze.
I love the North Star espresso blend. It it one of the best espresso blends in Ottawa. I have tried lots of the small roasters if Ottawa. Equator is top notch.
I buy 5lb bags and freeze in mason jars. It saves on shipping and the 5lb bag uses far less plastic than 6-7 of the 12 oz bags.
If you use this method, fill the jars as full as you can. A deep freezer is best. When you take out of the freezer, let come up to room temp before opening. This will prevent moisture from getting in the beans. I then put the beans in previously used equator bags to protect them from light. The espresso from frozen beans is still every bit as good.
North Star is my new favourite of all the roasts and brands I've tried. Delicious coffee!
No complaints - this is our go to bean!
