Goodbye Summer...Hello Coffee!

Carrie Masek

Monday is Labor Day.  We're steeping Summer Ice for Cold Brew and have mixed more Bright Cajun Spice for Labor Day grilling. After that, it's back to work and 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, features a soft floral aroma followed by a burst of grapefruit that melts into a lingering cocoa finish. Lively enough to jump start your brain and smooth enough to enjoy all day. Add cream for a lovely dessert coffee that's perfect with breakfast pastry or fall apple pie. Available all month in full and 1/2 roast bags.

For those who enjoy a bold start to the day, our Exploration Coffee for September is Organic Java Dadar, a smooth, silky coffee with a very full, almost syrupy body, and intense flavor: Dark chocolate and mild cherry with an intriguing black pepper finish. Half roast bags roasted at a Vienna roast level to heighten bold, intense flavor will be available through the month of September.

Labor Day, Monday, September 2, is the last day to order Doggone Good Coffee, a smooth, balanced coffee that celebrates our canine friends. With rich chocolate aromatics, lively citrus topnotes, butterscotch sweetness and a lingering cocoa finish, Doggone Good Coffee is bright enough for the earliest morning dog walk and smooth enough to enjoy all day. Order some this weekend, and we’ll roast and mail it to you on Tuesday. For every roast sold, $1 will go to support PAWS Chicago.

To thank the readers of this blog, 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.
