Holiday Time is Coffee Time

Carrie Masek

It's December and the Holiday Season is underway.  Here at Coffee by the Roast, we like to celebrate the holidays by sharing coffee.  You can, too!  Whether it's a 9 oz pouch from a Secret Santa, or a Coffee Club Subscription that keeps giving all year long, it's easy to give the gift of great coffee.  

One great option is December's Coffee of the Month, Holiday Spice.  Smooth and creamy with a sweet aroma and  complex flavor: Lively fruit notes, Baker's chocolate, praline sweetness with a hint of sweet spice, Holiday Spice is perfect to enjoy with Christmas cookies, latkes or rich holiday desserts. Leave a cup out for Santa, or brew a pot to enjoy with friends and family.  Holiday Spice will be available in both full and 1/2 roast bags all month.

Our Holiday Season started with some sad news.  Because of extreme weather in Indonesia through the growing season, several of our favorite Indonesian coffees will be either difficult or impossible to find this year.  Organic Dragon is completely unavailable, and it looks like New Guinea Kimel may be equally hard to find.  Luckily, during our search, we discovered a coffee co-op that shares the Waghi Valley with the Kimel estate.  Papua New Guinea Waghi Valley is a smooth and creamy, full-bodied coffee with a sweet aroma and complex flavor: Lively fruit notes, Baker's chocolate, praline sweetness and a hint of sweet spice.  We like this coffee a lot and hope you do, too!  To make it easier to try, we're offering it as our Monthly 1/2 roast all December.

Speaking of easy, you can now set up a Customer Account at Coffee by the Roast.  There's a sign-up button under our logo.  All you have to do is click the button and sign up.  Having a customer account will let the website remember your address and credit card information, and  keep track of your orders.  You'll be able to look up your order history to make reordering even easier.

To thank the readers of our blog we're offering a FREE 1/2 roast of coffee with your first order of the month.  Just type, "December," in the box for Additional Instructions and we'll add a 1/2 roast of Holiday Spice to your order at no extra charge.

Sharing coffee is our favorite way to celebrate the holidays!

Have a wonderful Holiday Season!
