December Coffee Subscription
December 11, 2017 • Elliot Reinecke
We have some great coffee coming out to everyone this month! All subscribers will get one of our favorite Ethiopians Hachira and all two bags subscribers will receive a mexican coffee Grapos as well.
Hachira is a great all around, complex coffee, which should please both your coffee snob cousin from San Fransisco as well as your akward uncle from Kansas. Grapos is the go to for those cold mornings when you feel you want a little more cream in your coffee. Both of these coffees are a great representation of their regions.
First coffee for all subscribers, Hachira
As I mentioned, this is one of our favorite Ethiopians. It has enough stone fruit in there to break through but is well rounded with notes of red apple and toasted hazelnut.

Second coffee for two bag subscribers, Grapos
Coffee from Mexico has been getting better over the past few years, and we expect to always have an offering from our neighboor in the future. Grapos does a great job at highlighting the region with some sweetness, nutty characteristics and full body. Great for mixing with some cream on colder days.
