Limited-Release Winter Blend
Each year as the holidays approach, we create a special, limited-edition winter blend dedicated to celebration and good cheer. We earmark $1 from each pound of Iridescent sold for a special project fund. The themes of those projects vary year-to-year, but the overall concept stays the same—a focus on increasing the resilience of coffee farmers and their communities.

Iridescent offers an approachable flavor profile that is still complex with sweet notes of chocolate and berry.
