WATCH NOW: 'TIS THE SEASON BEHIND THE BLEND
The Holidays are a Time of Nostalgia
And what better way to ring them in than with a blend composed of wistful, classic coffees. This mix of a dry-processed lot from Ethiopia and a wet-hulled offering from Sumatra calls back to the original coffee blend, Mocha Java.
This year’s Ethiopian component is a dry-processed coffee from members of the Adame Gorbota washing station in the famed Yirgacheffe region. It lends the blend its rich, deep fruitiness. For the second year in a row, the Sumatran component comes from the famed Aceh region in northern Sumatra, specifically KOKOWAGAYO, a woman owned and managed cooperative. Here the coffees are processed in the “wet hull” method that has made Sumatra famous for their flavor profile.
Together, these coffees create our version of one of the world’s original coffee blends, Mocha Java.
11 years running, this annual holiday release has become a source of nostalgia itself, and we are honored to be a part of so many traditions through the years. This year's packaging reflects that feeling, showing the many homes and places that make up our community, all being brought together by coffee.
