24th ANNUAL CHRISTMAS BLEND

It's BACK!  For twenty four years, we've been touting our beloved Christmas Blend as the perfect complement to wintery early mornings and a lingering weekend brunch and this year is no exception.  The folks at the Roastery have revisited the union of Ethiopia, Guatemala and Timor to deliver a cup that has depth, body, smoke and fruit.
