Every year, Raleigh-based Counter Culture Coffee releases a special, limited edition blend just for the holidays. Counter Culture’s roasters aim for an accessible, crowd-pleasing flavor profile that’s easy to love, and eminently gift-able. This is the coffee to serve family and friends after your holiday meal, or to have with pancakes on snowy mornings! Packaged in a specially designed, holiday-themed gift box, it’s also the perfect gift for a coffee loving host.
2014’s Holiday Coffee is a blend of two beans — 85% Peruvian from the Cenfrocafe co-op, and 15% Idido washed Yirgacheff from Ethiopia. In keeping with the giving spirit of the season, a nickel from the sale of every pound will be donated to fund community initiatives in coffee-growing regions. If you aren’t yet a specialty coffee fan, this is your perfect gateway blend. With notes of brown sugar, baking spices, bittersweet chocolate, and pecan, we think this year’s Holiday Coffee is truly excellent!
