From Sumatra to your breakfast: Costco’s best Kirkland Signature coffee

This Costco exclusive coffee is grown between 1,000 and 2,500 meters of elevation (3,200 ft to 8,200 ft).
According to Costco, it is a limited edition (but it was launched two years ago so, don’t worry) and, being from a single origin, all the beans are uniform and even in flavor and intensity. It is available in medium roast, which will give you a slightly intense coffee, without being too bitter or tough for the stomach. This high-harvest coffee is certified organic by the USDA, which gives you guarantee that it is not a hoax.
