Fall is upon us once again, and everyone is getting into the mood.
We've unleashed our house made pumpkin spiced syrup for all, the baristas are beginning to don cardigans and beanies, and we've decked out the whole store like it's Salem at midnight. Things are getting festive, and coincidentally we stumbled onto a new blend to make the whole thing a wrap.
As we phase certain coffees in and out of rotation, we usually seek a varietal somewhat reminiscent of whatever has run out of stock to replace it in an effort to keep things interesting while maintaining some level of familiarity. As our juicy bags of Colombia Asojardin begin to dwindle (only a few left, you better snag 'em quick!) we set out to find a replacement single origin. Something sweet, festive, and worthy of the harvest season. Of course, once we got to the cupping table priorities quickly changed when we discovered a bright and shiny Mexican coffee highlighted a deep and syrupy offering from Bali in the most beautiful way. We fell in love, things began moving fast and the next thing I knew I was bringing back more coffee with me than we knew what to do with.
This was a good idea.
Our new Sweater Weather Harvest Blend will be hitting shelves this week, and we're super psyched about it. Incredibly balanced, sweet and syrupy, this blend is the perfect cozy companion on a chilly autumn afternoon. Just grab a thick blanket, a good book and watch the colors of the leaves change with this delightful cup to keep you warm! It also pairs great with holiday desserts, so break out the pumpkin pie while you're at it.
I think this sleepy Saturday I'll enjoy my cup while listening to some Alexi Murdoch, how about you?
