Celebrate Summer with Great Coffee!

Carrie Masek

Memorial Day weekend is behind us and the warm days of summer are up ahead.  It's time for coffee!  Whether you prefer your summer coffee iced, blended in a frothy drink, or piping hot, we have the coffee for you!

Our Coffee of the Month for June is Midsummer's Brew.  Midsummer's Brew is a smooth, rich, heavy-bodied coffee with dried fruit sweetness and a hint of spice.  Perfect for sipping after dinner, or add vanilla ice cream for a fantastic coffee float.  Great hot, Midsummer's Brew also makes a wonderful Cold Brew coffee.  At only $10.99/roast all month, go ahead and try it both ways!

If you're not sure how to make Cold Brew, check out our Cold Brew blog.  Cold Brew coffee is inexpensive to make at home, it's easy and it's delicious!

New crop coffees are rolling in.  We just received this year's Ethiopia Lake Abaya G1, both washed and dry processed.  Here at Coffee Fresh, we can't agree which we like best.  Some of us love the clean, rich flavor and jasmine-like aroma of the washed Ethiopia Lake Abaya.  Others prefer the complex intensity and heavier body of dry processed Natural Lake Abaya, with its silky smooth body, dried fruit sweetness and hint of spice.  Roasted on the dark side, Natural Lake Abaya also makes a wonderful Cold Brew.  For the month of June, we're offering 1/2 roast bags of Natural Lake Abaya, roasted at a Vienna Roast level, for only $10.  

Keep a look out this month as more coffees roll in.  We're hoping to receive new crop, Rain Forest Alliance certified, Guatemala Huehuetenango soon.  Later in the summer, we're hoping for some new Panama Boquete.

Finally, to thank those of you who read our blog, we'd like to send you a Free 1/2 roast of Midsummer's Brew with your first order of the month.  Just write "June" in the box labeled "Additional Instructions."  That's it!  When we get your order, we'll include a 1/2 roast of Midsummer's Brew at no extra charge.  Sharing coffee is our favorite way to celebrate the beginning of summer!
