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.
We taste notes of dried fruits, citrus, vanilla and baking spices.
Eight years ago, we started a new tradition with our holiday coffee, combining two very different and complex coffees from Sumatra and Ethiopia. For this year’s blend, we have once again selected two of the finest coffees Sumatra and Ethiopia have to offer.
This year’s Ethiopian component is a dry-processed coffee grown by Tiqist Waqo, a single-producer from Idido in the world famous Yirgacheffe region.The Sumatran component comes from the famed Aceh region in northern Sumatra. Here the coffees are picked at peak ripeness and then 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.

A HOLIDAY TRADITION
Our ‘Tis the Season Roast is one of our favorite coffees of the year. It's a great opportunity for us to share our passion for sourcing and roasting the best coffees in the world. Each year, we are taken with this blend’s combination of acidity and body that seems to perfectly compliment the spirit of the season. We love sharing our passion for coffee and bringing people together for the holidays. We hope this coffee does just that. Enjoy.
*This coffee is sold standard as whole bean and the special wrap shows "whole bean". But we can grind it for you! Just make the selection that you wish.
