What month starts with coffee and ends with spooks? October!

Carrie Masek

October is one of our favorite months of the year.  It starts with coffee, is filled with crisp weather and vibrant leaves, and ends with Halloween fun.  Some folks, even get a head start on their holiday shopping.  Here are three ways to get more fun out of your October.

Enjoy our Coffee of the Month.  Black Magic Brew is a devilishly delicious brew that's so good, it's spooky.  A dark roasted blend that features intense chocolate richness, dried fruit sweetness and a hint of spice, Black Magic Brew is rich enough to warm chilly autumn mornings, and bold enough to stand up to chocolaty Halloween treats.

Try Time Travel in a Cup.  To celebrate Coffee Day, we recreated the first coffee blend. Historic Mokha Java is blend of dry, naturally processed coffee beans from the first two regions to grow and export coffee. We roast them to a Vienna roast level to mimic the roasting technology available is the late 17th and early 18th centuries.  Brew a pot and take yourself on a trip through time. (For more information check out our Coffee Day blog.)

Finish Holiday Shopping Early: Love to give presents, but hate shopping?  Give the gift of coffee and leave the hassle to us.  Have a long shopping list? No problem!  Order enough coffee, pay postage for each address, and we'll take care of the rest.  Custom holiday labels available on request.

And finally, we're offering a 1/2 roast of Black Magic Brew, FREE, with your first order of the month.  Just write "October" in the additional instructions box, and we'll add the extra 1/2 roast bag of coffee to the box at no extra charge.  Sharing great coffee is our favorite way to thank you for reading our newsletter!
