About Winter Solstice
Long nights and dark days have us reaching for something to keep the cold at bay. A sweet and toasty blend of fresh crop coffees from Peru and Guatemala, Winter Solstice gives us a reason to get out of bed and weather the day. Because while daylight might be dwindling, we’re not ones to hibernate.
This year’s blend features coffees from two of our favorite communities in northern Peru -- Productores de Estrella Divina and Productores de Colasay -- along with one of our bedrock Guatemalan coffees from the Rio Azul Cooperative. These coffees are all at the peak of their seasonality and make for a cozy companion to the deep freeze ahead. So bundle up and pour yourself another cup. We’re in for a long winter.
With fudgy depth, candied cherry sweetness and plum-like qualities, it's like cozying up to a fire with a hot cup of cocoa, a cherry cordial and a fresh slice of fruitcake. So let’s hunker down and commit ourselves anew to the things that bring us light in the depths of winter.
