July Newsletter

Carrie Masek

Saturday is the Fourth of July, and here at Coffee by the Roast we've created an all American custom blend in honor of this all American holiday. "All American Cup" combines coffees from North and South America into a well balanced, smooth and flavorful blend: Rich chocolate sparked with lively orange and raspberry topnotes and balanced by peach sweetness. Great for sipping over ice at an afternoon picnic or to savor while watching evening fireworks, at only $10.99 for a full roast* (around 18.5 oz.), "All American Cup” is a very special coffee at a very special price. Please drop by our website and order some today.

Panama Boquete is coming! We've waited months for the new crop of Panama Boquete. Sugarcane and honeysuckle sweetness paired with chocolate richness and a smooth, creamy body makes this Panama we could sip all day long. Coffee from Panama is getting hard to find, and more expensive, but we think this Panama Boquete is well worth $14.27 per roast (approximately $12.30/lb). Check our website next week, try a roast and see!

Thanks to everyone who has stopped by our table at the Lake Forest Open Air Market! It's the only place to find our Farmer's Market Blend, a smooth, easy-drinking coffee with lively citrus topnotes and the sweet, rich flavor of dark chocolate covered caramel. Buy a cup of brewed for $2 or buy the beans to take home, $7 for a half roast bag or $12 (approximately $10.35/lb) for a full roast bag. You can even watch the beans being roasted!

Coffee by the Roast is getting a new website! You'll be able to search for your favorite coffee, see pictures of green coffee beans and the bags they come in, and even watch our roasters rolling! We'll be asking for beta testers soon, brave people willing to explore our new site and help us make it even better. Watch for a newsletter in the next 3-4 weeks asking for volunteers and, please, give us a hand. Thanks!

Some of our customers have asked us to grind their whole bean coffee before we ship it. If you would like to try fresh roasted coffee, but don’t have a grinder, just click “the special instructions to merchant” link on the page with the final “pay now” button (or drop us an email at and ask for the coffee to be ground. Let us know what kind of brewer you use (Auto Drip, old-fashioned percolator, French Press, etc) and we will happily grind your coffee before shipping it to you.

Finally, to thank the subscribers to our newsletter, we are including an additional half-roast pouch of “All American Cup,” FREE, with your first order of the month! Just write “July” in the special instructions before you hit the final pay button (or drop us an email at We’ll throw in the extra half-roast at no extra charge. Sharing great coffee is our favorite way to celebrate the Fourth!

Please browse our online store, order a pouch or two and discover the wonder of truly fresh coffee. Your coffee. Your roast. Your way.
