Favorite Thanksgiving Coffee + Dessert Pairings
We love the warming foods and food traditions of the holidays, and we thought we'd recommend a few of the coffees we'll be enjoying at the Thanksgiving table next week, along with favorite holiday dessert pairings. Happy Thanksgiving!
Baroida, which just arrived from the Easter Highlands of Papua New Guinea, is a spectacular coffee with notes of spice, dried fruit, and molasses above a deeply satisfying, creamy body. There is simply no better coffee to pair with pumpkin pie.
Aida Batlle's Finca Kilimanjaro is unmistakable, offering a distinctly complex flavor combination of blackcurrant, vanilla, and caramel otherwise found only in Kenya. With its deep body and silky, plush richness, this coffee pairs beautifully with apple pie a la mode.
Our 2011 Holiday Blend, crafted with coffee from our direct relationship with the farmers of Konga, Ethiopia, is carefully roasted to bring out notes of chocolate and caramel to complement the coffee's sweet, floral aroma. The result is deliciously deep and resonant, perfect to accompany rich holiday desserts and brisk winter mornings. One dollar per pound sold of this coffee will build and fund schools in Ethiopian farming communities. An ideal accompaniment to anything chocolate, such as buckeyes, truffles, and chocolate-covered nuts.
Note: Neither UPS nor the USPS will be delivering packages Thursday, November 24, so, orders in transit at that time may experience a slight delay.
