The 12 Coffees of Christmas

Is there anything better than a hot cup of Roasterie coffee on a cold winter day?  We didn’t think so!  Let’s face it—winter, and Christmastime in particular, is the best season to drink coffee.  Coffee can warm you up after a long day of outdoor light hanging or can be served as a dessert after your big ham feast.  However you take your coffee, it’s always the most delicious during Christmas.  So why not celebrate your holidays with the 12 coffees of Christmas?

Leading up to Christmas Day, we encourage you try a different Roasterie blend every single day!  Each coffee is sure to warm your heart and taste just as delicious as the next.  So starting on December 14th, give each one of these Christmas coffees a try (and end with a bang on December 25!).

DAY 1: December 14, 2012— Autumn Harvest Blend

Say goodbye to fall and hello to winter by enjoying your last cup of Autumn Harvest Blend on December 14th!  As the weather begins to get chillier and chillier, your Autumn Harvest beans may dwindle down further and further.  Finish up that bag of Autumn Harvest and try the next 11 blends this winter.

DAY 2: December 15, 2012— Christopher Elbow Chocolate Blend

On the second day of Christmas, Roasterie gives to you the Christopher Elbow Blend.  Instead of craving hot chocolate after a day of sledding, ice skating or snowball fights, you might start wanting the Christopher Elbow Chocolate Flavored Coffee instead.  This truly is the world’s greatest true dark chocolate coffee—and you’ve gotta try it!

DAY 3: December 16, 2012— American Restaurant Blend

On the third day of Christmas, Roasterie gives to you our American Restaurant Blend (it’s a popular one!).  This sweet and soothing blend, with hints of warm buttermilk and fruit, has a mild acidity and a mesquite smoky finish.  With apple cinnamon after-tones, it’s the perfect blend to kick off your holiday season.

DAY 4: December 17, 2012— 40 Sardines Blend

Forget four calling birds!  Go for 40 Sardines instead!  The 40 Sardines Blend is one of our most popular roasts.  With earthy and exotic aromas of dark ripe cherry and bittersweet cocoa, 40 Sardines will always be a top-seller and one of our favorite and most accessible blends.

DAY 5: December 18, 2012— Stormin’ Norman Blend

A winter storm is a’brewin!  It’s the perfect time to drink Stormin’ Norman Blend, the signature coffee blend named for The Roasterie’s beloved master roaster who developed it.  Look out!  This coffee has a slightly spicy finish, a heavier body and hints of sweet earth.

DAY 6: December 19, 2012— Full Vengeance Dark Blend

On the sixth day of Christmas, Roasterie gives you a dark blend—Full Vengeance!  Remember the charred, bitter coffee beans sold to you as a “dark roast”?  Take revenge by throwing those dry black beans in the trash and give your palate the exquisite dark roast it deserves!

DAY 7: December 20, 2012— Kansas City Blend

With only 5 days left until Christmas Day, it’s time to finish wrapping the presents!  Make sure you include the Kansas City Blend on your list of gifts this holiday season—it’s the perfect present for out-of-town loved ones.  Give them a real taste of Kansas City!
