Every year, our customers wait patiently for us to start making our Christmas Blend to enjoy with their friends and family. Black Powder Coffee is happy to announce our 2016 Christmas Blend is available! This years recipe includes a micro lot Burundi, Sumatra, and Brazil Natural. It has a bright beginning, a clove-spicy middle, and a dark-baked chocolate finish. It’s the perfect cup for after meals, or waking up on a winter morning to get you in the holiday spirit! Our label for this year’s packaging is a branch of coffee cherries, which closely resembles holly berries and ivy prior to harvesting.   We will also be introducing a new flavored coffee for Christmas – Santa’s Favorite! It’s a smooth medium roast blend with peppermint and vanilla flavors (we’d like to think Santa drinks this as he goes over his naughty or nice list).
