Odyssey Blend

Why you'll love it: Our founder and CEO Todd Carmichael hand-picked the elements of this blend, determined to create the perfect morning brew that would impress even the most sophisticated coffee drinker.

Story of the bean: Twenty one years ago, Todd Carmichael sat down in a bustling Parisian cafe and sketched out his vision and business plan for a coffee roasting company in Philadelphia, La Colombe. Todd challenged himself this year, drawing on two decades of experience brewing coffee around the world, to create a blend that would win over the hearts of the classical French purists. The Odyssey blend is inspired by his journey back to Paris and was roasted and served for the first time in the historic Palais Royal. This coffee represents a return to La Colombe's roots.
