April Fools, Easter and Flowers...Spring is finally here!

Carrie Masek

This year, Easter falls on April Fools Day. Though it's officially spring, and flowers are beginning to sprout, we're still expecting lots of rain and many chilly, gray days. Luckily, we have coffee to brighten those gloomy mornings.

Cloudburst Blend, our Coffee of the Month for April, is a good choice.   Creamy with citrus topnotes, toffee richness and lingering chocolate finish, Cloudburst Blend is lively enough to brighten the grayest spring morning and smooth enough to enjoy all day. Available all month in both full and 1/2 roast bags.

If you prefer your coffee a little darker and sweeter, try our Monthly 1/2 roast special, Organic Papua New Guinea Keto Tapasi. A smooth, balanced coffee with candied flower sweetness, buttery richness and lively berry topnotes this organically certified coffee reminds of good Kona.  Try a 1/2 roast and see for yourself.

For many, Easter means egg hunts, elaborate brunches and lots of pastry.  All of these go well with coffee, but did you know you can also cook with coffee?  For the rest of April, we're going to share coffee-filled recipes and links on Coffee by the Blog.  We'd love to share your favorite coffee related recipes, too.  If you have one, please send it to us, either through our Contact Us page, or via email at  As a thank you, we'll send you our favorite cookie recipe, Mocha Crunch Bars*.

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 write, "April," in the box for additional instructions.  We'll add a 1/2 roast of Cloudburst Blend at no extra charge.

Sharing coffee is our favorite way to celebrate Easter and the beginning of spring.
