Good-bye Summer...Hello Coffee!

Carrie Masek

Monday is Labor Day.  We're already steeping Cold Brew and getting ready for the picnic.  After that, it's back to work and back to drinking hot coffee on chilly Fall mornings.  Here are a couple of coffees to help you wake up when it's cold and gray outside.

Easy Sunrise, September's Coffee of the Month, is a rich and lively coffee with a honey-sweet aroma, citrus topnotes and a rich, lingering finish. It's a great way to brighten those too-early mornings, and is smooth and sweet enough to enjoy all day.  Available in Full and 1/2 roast bags all month.

Our Exploration Coffee for September is Organic Sulawesi Kalosi, a bold, full-bodied coffee with an intense aroma, smooth mouthfeel and complex flavor: Bakers chocolate spiced with licorice and sweetened with a hint of molasses. Roasted at a Vienna roast level to bring out the rich sweetness, 1/2 roast bags will be available through September.

Some of our favorite coffees are finally on their way.  Panama Boquete is headed for the warehouse and should arrive in a couple of weeks. New Ethiopian coffees are coming as well, as are a new crop of decaffeinated coffees.  Better yet, this year's crop of PNG Kimel and Organic Dragon are getting ready to ship.  With any luck, we'll have both in stock soon. Keep an eye on the blog, and we'll let you know when they arrive.

In the meantime, we're a offering a free 1/2 roast of Easy Sunrise with your first order of the month.  Just write, "September," in the box for Additional Instructions and we'll throw in the extra coffee at no extra charge.

Sharing great coffee is our favorite way to celebrate the last summer weekend.
