It still feels like Winter...but Spring is on its way.

Carrie Masek

The weather man is predicting temperatures in the negative digits this weekend, but the first day of Spring is coming soon. So is Daylight Savings and St. Patrick's Day! Whether you're struggling to wake up an hour early, celebrating your Irish roots, or enjoying an early spring brunch, we have the coffee for you!

Morning Mist, our Coffee of the Month for March, is lively enough to brighten a late winter morning and smooth enough to sip all day. You can even mix it with whiskey in the evening for a memorable Irish Coffee. Smooth and sweet, lively and rich, Morning Mist is available all month in both full and 1/2 roast bags.

Our Exploration coffee this month is Organic Sulawesi Kalosi. Roasted at a Vienna roast level, this full-bodied, washed Indonesian coffee has an intense aroma and complex flavor: Baker's chocolate spiced with licorice and sweetened by a hint of molasses. Available in both full and 1/2 roast  bags all month.

Our new Spotlight blog series highlights the best or most surprising of our new coffees.  The first Spotlight was on Ethiopia Natural Lake Abaya. This week's is Costa Rica La Montaña. Keep an eye on our blog for more Spotlights on amazing coffees!

Speaking of amazing, one of our favorite coffee folks, Allen Glines of The Coffee Encyclopedia posted a review of our coffee on Medium. You can read the review here. Thank you, Allen! And thanks to our customers who have posted reviews of us on Facebook or other review sites. We love hearing from you, and reviews help other coffee lovers find us. If you have the time and don't mind spending some of it on our behalf, please go to the Google review link for Coffee by the Roast or Facebook and leave us a review.  Whatever you feel like saying would be much appreciated.

Finally, to thank the readers of this blog, we’re offering a 1/2 roast of Morning Mist FREE with your first order of the month. Just write “March” in the box for additional instructions, or drop us an email. We’ll throw in the extra half-roast at no extra charge.

Sharing coffee is one of our favorite ways to get through the last few weeks of winter!
