April Fools and Flowers, it's finally Spring!

Carrie Masek

Flowers are beginning to sprout, and it looks like this April is going to live up to its reputation for lots of rain and chilly, gray days. While you wait for those May flowers, brighten up your mornings with a cup of April's Coffee of the Month, Cloudburst Blend.

Cloudburst Blend is a creamy coffee with citrus topnotes, toffee richness and lingering chocolate finish. Lively enough to brighten the grayest spring morning, smooth enough to enjoy all day. For the month of April only, Cloudburst Blend will be available in both full and 1/2 roast pouches.

If the lingering chill makes you long for a coffee that's dark and bold, try April's  1/2 roast special, Organic Sumatra Reje Gayo. A smooth and creamy coffee, with a full, almost syrupy body, chocolate richness and a surprising spritz of lemon and green pepper, this organically certified Sumatran is great at any roast level from Full City to French.  For the month of April, try a 1/2 roast at a bold, Northern Italian roast level for only $11.98. 

Finally, to thank the readers of this blog, we're offering a FREE 1/2 roast of Cloudburst Blend with your first order of the month.  Just write "April" in the box for special instructions when you place your order and we'll throw in a 1/2 roast pouch of Cloudburst Blend at no extra charge.

Sharing great coffee is our favorite way to celebrate the beginning of Spring!
