Celebrate the shortest month of the year with coffee!

Carrie Masek

February may be short, but it's very busy! There's grumpy groundhogs, parties, parades and, of course, Valentine's Day.  Whether you want to wake up your favorite "groundhog," savor a cafe au lait, or share coffee and chocolate with your Valentine, we have the coffee for you!

Our Coffee of the Month for February is Bourbon Street Brew, a smooth, heavy bodied coffee that's rich, bold and complex: Baker’s chocolate, dark-roasted chestnut and a hint of sweet spice. Inspired by the coffee enjoyed in New Orleans during Mardi Gras. Mix with chicory for New Orleans style coffee, or blend with steamed milk for a fantastic Cafe Au Lait. Available all month in both full and 1/2 roast bags.

For a sweet, Valentine's Day treat, try our new Dark Chocolate Vanilla Bonbon, gentle, medium-bodied coffee flavored with rich dark chocolate and smooth, vanilla buttercream.  Valentine's Day in a cup!

If you haven't already, check out our new coffee from Ecuador, Ecuador Cotopaxi.  We really like this year's microlot! It's honey sweet, chocolate rich, with balancing notes of lively persimmon and sweet spice.  Available all month in both full and 1/2 roast bags.

Finally, to thank everyone who reads our blog, a way to get a Free 1/2 roast of coffee with your first order.  Just write "February" in the box for "Additional Instructions," and we'll add a 1/2 roast of Bourbon Street Brew to your order at no extra charge.

Sharing great coffee is our favorite way to celebrate the shortest month of the year!
