Updated: Great Holiday Coffee Gifts
Perfect for any coffee fan or seasonal get-together, our 2012 Holiday Blend is crafted with coffees from the Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmer Cooperative Union in Ethiopia and roasted to accentuate intensely fruity notes – suggesting blackberry and blueberry – as well as cocoa powder and spice. And, $1 per pound sold of this coffee will help to fund agricultural projects in Ethiopian farming communities.
Coffee Buyer & Quality Manager Tim Hill hand picks coffees for our Single-Origin Subscriptions, which include freshly roasted bags of two different single-origin selections in each installment – subsequent shipments every four weeks make this a great gift of fresh, seasonal coffees that keeps on giving into 2013.
Our farmhouse subscriptions are well-suited for folks who want a little more familiarity in their morning coffee. Akin to a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) box from a favorite farm, farmhouse changes subtly throughout the year to feature freshly harvested coffees at their very best.
The selection of brewing equipment we offer is ideal for small-batch, handcrafted coffee making. A Bonavita Electric Kettle provides excellent water control for pourover brewing with fast heating. The Counter Culture Pourover Brewer features one, small opening at its base, which results in a smooth, slow flow and optimal extraction. To round out your pourover brewing set up, we offer an elegant, heatproof Hario Glass Server and paper filters.
This season's single-origin selections include among them El Gavilán from Ecuador and Tairora Project from Papua New Guinea, as well as perennial favorites such as La Golondrina, Buziraguhindwa, Baroida, and the return of Valle del Santuario. From the realm of the exquisitely rare, we are proud to offer Aida's Grand Reserve, from Aida Batlle, and Variety: Gesha.
