The Dog Days of Summer are here

Carrie Masek

It's already August and the hottest days of summer are on their way.  Keep cool with coffee! Whether you agree with the Chinese and sip it hot to cool off, or prefer it frosty and iced, the Dog Days of Summer are a great time to enjoy your favorite coffee!

A good one to try is our August Coffee of the Month, Sea Salt Breeze (was Seaside Blend), a sweet, full-bodied blend as refreshing as a trip to the seaside. Great brewed hot or cold. Try it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a very special treat!  Available in both full and 1/2 roast bags through the month of August.

Readers of our blog already know we've got a lot of new coffees.  For the month of August, one of the favorites, honey-sweet, butter-rich Panama Boquete Maunier, will be available in both full and 1/2 roast bags. If you want to try something interesting, order a 1/2 roast of Panama Geisha as well, and discover the difference 6 extra cupping points make.

Changes are coming to Coffee by the Roast.  You've probably already noticed we've changed the names of our Coffees of the Month.  The other coffee names will be changing, too.  So will the look of our website, and maybe even the bags we send your coffee in.  What's not changing is the coffee itself.  The flavor profiles of our blends and the quality of our coffees are staying exactly the same.  Our roasting and dedication to freshness isn't changing either.  You'll get the same, great coffee as always, but hopefully with a better look.

Please contact us if you have any problems with or questions about our new website!

Finally, to thank the readers of this blog, we're offering a Free 1/2 roast of Sea Salt Breeze with your first order of the month.  Just write, "August," in the box for Additional Instructions and we'll throw in the extra bag at no extra charge.

Sharing great coffee is our favorite way to keep cool during the Dog Days of Summer.
