The Holiday Season

The Holiday Season

Posted by on Nov 28, 2014 in Blog

At the roastery, we try not to take life too seriously….if you haven’t noticed.  But the holiday is coming at us like a freight train and we thought the perfect gift would be coffee that YOU select to make it personal.  To enable that, we have bought gift boxes (pre-wrapped to save you time) that you can fill with fresh roasted coffee and accessories like a pour over ceramic cone and mugs.  The concept is that our local residents can hand craft the gift the same way we have hand crafted the coffee.  With 15 single origin prime beans and then 8 blends, you can engage in selecting the appropriate gift for any body on your list.  By the way, our email and phones work so we can ship anywhere in the lower 48 for a very reasonable price.

We also have baskets and corporate pre-selected packages to really provide a gift someone will enjoy and be unique.

The 2014 Holiday Blend and 2014 Santa’s Flavored Favorite are also on the menu until they are gone or Christmas…which ever comes first.  The Holiday Blend was hand crafted from a Burundi Coffee Bean from Thrive Farmers where 75% of the cost we pay goes to the farmer.  But that is only part of the equation of giving back this holiday season.  We choose this bean for its spicy taste with amazing brightness.  Black Powder then blended it with prime beans from Indonesia and another African bean to create a wonder cup.  Our job is to take these wonderful ingredients from the farmer, roast them to the peak of flavor, then blend them to fill in any flavor gaps.  This cup provides brightness and spice in the beginning, chocolate middle, then a 5 sec smooth linger without aftertaste (nothing from Black Powder is bitter).  Perfect for desert or even a morning awakening.

And during the holiday, take time to enjoy a cup of coffee with a friend.  Coffee can be a social highlight to really get to know you neighbor, co-worker, or friends.

So think about the gift of hand crafted artisan coffee for Christmas.  It’s an easy gift to give, it will be used, and enjoyed.

Responsibly Harvested.  Divinely Roasted!!
