Cinco de Mayo to Memorial Day, May is a great month for coffee!

Carrie Masek

Flowers are blooming and the weather is getting warmer, but the spring mornings are still chilly enough to cry out for a good, hot cup of coffee.  One great option is Mom's Blend, our Coffee of the Month for May.  Lively, sweet and rich, Mom's Blend features a subtle floral aroma, a smooth body and rich, lingering finish.  Perfect to enjoy with a Mother's Day Brunch, or to sip all day, Mom's Blend is a very special coffee at a very special price.

Thursday is Cinco de Mayo, and we have two great ways to celebrate the Mexican-American holiday.  Those who like their coffee straight, should try our Mexico Baxtla.  Rich and savory with tangy citrus topnotes and a lingering herbal sweetness, Mexico Baxtla is available in both full and 1/2 roast bags for the whole month of May.  

Those who prefer flavored coffee may prefer our featured flavor for the month, Mexicali Creme.  We take a smooth, gentle coffee and flavor it like a well know Mexican-style coffee/chocolate liquor.  A fiesta in a cup.

Finally, to thank those who read this blog, we're including a additional 1/2 roast of Mom's Blend with your first order of the month. Just write "May," in the Additional Instructions box when you check out, or drop us an email.

Sharing great coffee is our favorite way to celebrate the month of May.
