From Coffee to Spooks...It's October!

Carrie Masek

October is a great month.  The weather is crisp, the leaves turn beautiful colors, and the month ends with Halloween fun.  October is also a time of harvest and abundance and one of our favorite Coffee of the Months, Black Magic.

A sinfully delicious dark roasted coffee that is sweet, bold and complex, Black Magic is a bold way to start the day and a great coffee to enjoy with Halloween treats. Black Magic will be available in both full and 1/2 roast bags all month.

Our Exploration Coffee for October is sweet and gentle Organic Uganda Sipi Falls. A sweet way to start your morning, and smooth enough to enjoy all day, this African treasure is a wonderful contrast to Black Magic and is available all month in both full and 1/2 roast bags.

We already sold all of our first shipment of Ethiopia Natural Lake Abaya. Luckily, we were able to find another that we like even better. At a Full City roast level, the coffee is intense and complex, with a silky mouth feel, full body and a flavor that combines soft, lemon blossom brightness, ripe persimmon and spice sweetness and a lingering cocoa finish. Yum! To make things even better, the coffee is organically certified! To learn more about this amazing coffee, check out our next Spotlight blog!

Do you enjoy coffee with your Halloween treats? If you do, we’d love to hear about your favorite Halloween coffee. Please join the conversation and share it on the Facebook thread or in a comment on this blog. Or, if you'd like to share your thoughts with the wider world, leave us a coffee review on Google or on your favorite review site. Not only do we value your opinions, but reviews help more people find us. Help us connect coffee lovers to fresh, quality coffee!


Finally, to thank the readers of this blog, we’re offering a free 1/2 roast of coffee with your first order of the month. Just write, “October,” in the box for Additional Instructions, and we’ll add a 1/2 roast bag of Black Magic to your order at no extra charge. Sharing coffee is our favorite way to enjoy our favorite season!
