Valentine to Cotton Candy Coffee

Carrie Masek

What would Valentine's Day be without candy? Heart-shaped boxes full of chocolate are a Valentine's Day tradition. Of all our Coffee by the Roast family, the one who loves candy most is Lillian. So it's no surprise that her favorite coffee is Cotton Candy Coffee.

She even gave the coffee its name. A valued member of our cupping team, she was wowed by this morning coffee blend, declaring it reminded her of cotton candy, because it's lively, sweet flavor hit the mouth in a burst, then melted away. We liked it so much, we made it our Coffee of the Month for June.

Here's our valentine to Cotton Candy Coffee:

Cotton Candy, citrus bright,

The first sip's a great delight.

A lively burst, like summer's sun,

Sparks fresh the day that's just begun

Melts to flavors, clean and sweet

Cotton Candy, a daily treat.
