New Year...New Coffees

Carrie Masek

Happy 2018! Need a bold cup to "wake up" your new year?  We have the coffee for you! Try Midwinter's Brew, our Coffee of the Month for January, one of our new Indonesian coffees, or sweeten your morning with a great deal on Kona.

Our Coffee of the Month for January is Midwinter's Brew. A bold and wonderful way to wake up your winter mornings, Midwinter's Brew is a smooth and full-bodied coffee with dried fruit sweetness and a hint of spice.  Lovely with milk for breakfast, or enjoy with the last of the holiday treats.  This month, Midwinter's Brew will be available in both full and 1/2 roast pouches.

The Indonesians came in late this year, and some of our favorites won't be available at all until next year.  Luckily, the Indonesians we have received are lovely!  Right now, we're enjoying the new Organic Bali Kintamani and the new Organic Java Taman Dadar.  Both coffees are intense, full-bodied and bold.  We love the Bali's complex, dried fruit sweetness and the Java's Bakers chocolate notes with a hint of spice.  We can't decide which we like better...and we don't have to!  Neither do you.  If you love Indonesian coffees, give one, or both, of these a try.

We usually see new crop Kona right after the New Year.  In the meantime, we'd like to share our current crop Kona crop with you!  For the month of January, or while supplies last, this year's Kona Pahala will be available in both full and 1/2 roast pouches for a reduced and very reasonable price.  It's our way of adding a little Hawaiian sunshine to dark winter mornings!

Finally, to thank the subscribers to our newsletter, we are including an additional half-roast pouch of “Midwinter's Brew,” FREE, with your first order of the month! Just write “January” 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 beginning of a new year.
