Happy Holidays!

Carrie Masek

It’s already December and the Holiday Season has begun. Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, the Winter Solstice, Kwanzaa or just enjoy ringing out the old year and bringing the new, December is a great month for coffee! Here are some of the ways we’re celebrating this year:

With Holiday Spice. Our Coffee of the Month for December is a silky, full bodied coffee with a sweet aroma and complex flavor, lively fruit notes, Baker’s chocolate and a hint of sweet spice. Holiday Spice is available in both full roast and 1/2 roast pouches all month.

With Kona for Christmas. Mother Nature gave us an early present; the new crop of Kona will be available before the end of the year. We’re celebrating by making our current Kona Pahala the Exploration Coffee for December. We’re also offering full roast bags of Kona Pahala at a special holiday price. Our current Kona Pahala will be available in full roast and 1/2 roast bags all month (or while it lasts). Celebrate the season with a Hawaiian vacation in your cup!

With Coffee Gifts. Share the coffee you love! Whether it’s a 9 oz pouch for a Secret Santa gift, a roast of your favorite single origin coffee or a Coffee Club Subscription for a gift that keeps on giving, coffee makes a great present. This year, it’s even better. All our gift options for Kona Pahala are specially priced for the holidays.

With Taking the Hassle out of Your Holiday. Order coffee gifts and let us mail them. Just send us the list of names and addresses (along with who should get which coffee), and let us know when you’d like the coffee to arrive. Please remember to click on We Mail YOUR Gifts, to add postage for the extra addresses (the first one is included automatically) and we’ll take care of the rest. Please allow us a few extra days to process your order and to give the USPS extra time to deliver it.

With Taking Time off with Family. All of us at Coffee by the Roast are heading out of town for Christmas! We will be closed Christmas Eve (Monday, December 24) through Wednesday, December 26. Any orders we receive after Friday, December 21 will be roasted and mailed on Thursday. Please order your Christmas coffee early (by December 18, if possible), so you have plenty for Christmas morning.

With Sharing Coffee. To thank you for reading this blog, we’re offering a FREE 1/2 roast of Harvest Roast with your first order in December. Just write “December” in the box for Additional Instructions. We’ll include the 1/2 roast at no extra charge. Sharing coffee is our favorite way to celebrate the holidays!

Have a wonderful Holiday Season!
