Each locally roasted coffee will be for sale by the package and will make a fabulous hostess gift for the holidays. Come pick the perfect brew for you. We'll also some recommendations for books to cozy up with, and unveil some of our new sinful hot coffee drinks, including a toasty version of our popular Mint Mocha Escape.
