On February 2, Punxsutawney Phil climbed out of his burrow, took a look around, and did NOT see his shadow. Given the evidence from Phil and the crocuses and daffodils pushing up in our backyard, Spring seems destined to arrive early.
And with that in mind, we have decided to help it along with our Say Goodbye to Winter Song Sale.
This week only, all bags of Winter Song are $11.
Let's take a page from the 1993 script of the movie Groundhog Day and join Bill Murray in guzzling some of this seasonal blend before it's gone. And if Bill doesn't present enough motivation for you, we recently we had the chance to have Chris Schooley of the Roasters Guild give us some feedback on this coffee. In describing the Winter Song he says:
"I think what you did with this blend is creative in terms of matching the earthy qualities of both the coffees... This has like a porter or stout kind of quality to it, winter warmer kind of blend, so I can appreciate that. This had so much herbaceousness and root beer/sarsparilla quality on the fragrance, licorice and finished with a bit of that berry but was really chewy and textural."
Did he really say "Herbaceousness?" Well, whether or not you are able to taste herbaceousness, sarsparilla or licorice, this remains a blend worth grabbing a few bag of before it gets filed away in the Carabello Coffee vault.
Next week we say hello to an early Spring with two new offerings: Colombian Pedregal Lot 172 and our Coffee of the Month March 2013 offering from Yemen. And there will be more coming on their heels. So get your taste buds ready!
Carabello Coffee Now Served at The Bridge NKY
This week, The Bridge Community Church in Wilder, KY began serving Carabello Coffee during its Sunday services.

This is a great time to give a shout out to Aaron Morgan and Duane & Gina Dugger and say thank you for helping to make this partnership a reality. It is wonderful to have people like you advocating for our coffee and our mission. We hope to expand our church partnerships in NKY and OH.
