It's heating up in the roasting room here at Coffee Fresh, Inc. To help beat the heat, we've created a sweet, full-bodied blend as refreshing as a trip to the seaside. With dark chocolate notes and a hint of spice, Seaside Blend is lively enough to brighten a vacation breakfast and rich enough to compliment the most decadent late night dessert. Great hot, wonderful iced, and amazing poured over vanilla ice cream, at only $10.99 for a full roast* (around 18 oz.), Seaside Blend is a very special coffee at a very special price. Please drop by Coffee by the Roast and order some today.
