Yesterday was Groundhog Day and Punxutawney Phil predicted an early spring. Great news for those of us who have just survived a polar vortex.
Here at Coffee by the Roast, we got to thinking about spring and that led us to thoughts of the Lunar New Year and its Spring Festival. Throughout the whole world, people celebrate the Lunar New Year with a 23 days of parties, parades, and gifts. And every year, some of our favorite customers order small gift bags of Jamaica me Crazy® flavored coffee, to share with family and friends during the festival. Part of the appeal is the coffee itself, a sweet and gentle coffee that flavored with vanilla, caramel and the flavor of a Jamaican coffee liqueur. Another part of the appeal are the bags we put it in. Gold is a lucky color for New Year’s gifts, symbolizing wishes for a new year full of happiness and prosperity .
The Year of the Pig starts Tuesday, February 5, and the lovely tradition of visiting friends and family with small gifts inspired us to write a Valentine to Jamaica me Crazy® coffee, and the customers who love it.
Sweet, gentle coffee
Golden gift for New Year's Day
Love and joy all year.
