No Fooling...Just Great Coffee

Carrie Masek

Already tired of April showers?  Brighten your day with some sunshine in a cup!  Sunshine Blend, our Coffee of the Month for April, is a lively, rich coffee with a lovely floral aroma, bright orange topnotes, a hint of chocolate and a sweet brown sugar finish.  Lively enough to brighten the grayest morning and smooth enough to enjoy all day, at $10.99/roast, Sunshine Blend is a very special coffee at a very special price. Try some today and see!

The new crop coffees are on their way...and not a moment too soon!  We just sold our last roast of Guatemala Huehuetenango.  The new crop of Huehue's won't be in for another month, but another of our favorite Guatemalan's, Organic Guatemala Ceylan, will be arriving next week. You don't have to wait to order, though.  If you'd like to try a smooth and rich, organically certified coffee with lively citrus topnotes and a lingering butter finish, go ahead and order some today.  We'll roast your coffee as soon as it comes in, probably on Wednesday.

March is over, and so is our experiment offering 1/2 roast sample bags of Ecuador Patricio Jijon. Thank you to everyone who tried this amazing coffee!  We had so much fun with the small bags of Ecuador that we decided to offer sample bags of a different coffee this month.  After much debate, we chose a coffee at the opposite end of the flavor spectrum, Organic Bali Kintamani.  Instead of a smooth, rich, quintessentially American coffee, Bali Kintamani is bold, complex and intense, with a flavor that reminds us of figs, coriander and rich, sweet chocolate.  Roasted at a Vienna roast level to heighten the full body and sweetness, this is a coffee for sipping and savoring.  For the whole month of April, you can try a 1/2 roast bag for only $10.

Finally, to thank everyone who reads this blog, we're offering a FREE 1/2 roast of Sunshine Blend with your first order of the month.  Just write "April" in the Additional Instructions box (or send us an email), and we'll add the extra 1/2 roast of coffee to your order.

Sharing great coffee is our favorite way to celebrate Spring!
