It's May!

Carrie Masek

Flowers are blooming and the weather is getting warmer, but here in the Chicago area, the mornings are still chilly enough for a good, hot cup of coffee.  Whether you're celebrating Cinco de Mayo, Mother's Day or holding out for Memorial Day weekend, May is a great month for coffee!

Try starting your morning with our Coffee of the Month for May, Springtime Twist.  Lively and sweet, with a subtle floral aroma and lingering richness, Springtime Twist is delicious enough for a Mother's Day brunch, and smooth enough to sip all day. Springtime Twist will be available in two sizes through the month of May, both full roast (approx 18 oz) and 1/2 roast (approx 9 oz) .

Also available in 1/2 roast bags is our Monthly Special 1/2 roast, Organic Guatemala Adiesto.  Another great coffee to brighten a chilly morning, Organic Guatemala Adiesto has lemony topnotes, chocolate/almond richness and a lingering butter finish.  This is a coffee that just gets better as it cools, so make a full pot and enjoy it all day long!

If Flavored Coffee is your passion, consider celebrating Cinco de Mayo with Mexicali Creme, a gentle, medium-bodied coffee flavored in the style of a Mexican chocolate/coffee liquor  smoothed by a hint of vanilla.

Finally, 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, "May," in the box for special instructions and we'll include a 1/2 roast of Springtime Twist with your order at no extra charge.  Sharing coffee is one of our favorite ways to celebrate the month of May.
