Thank you as always for continuing to support Huckleberry- without you, we wouldn't be here roasting and brewing coffee.
It's hard to believe it's December already, but in light of the holiday season, we'd like to introduce Sister Winter, a holiday blend that celebrates coffee's seasonal transition at the end of the year, and the holiday spirit of sharing with friends and giving to those in need.
Sister Winter will benefit a new initiative from Grounds for Health to provide better cervical cancer treatment and screening for women in Ethiopia, a country that is not only the birthplace of coffee, but also has the highest cervical cancer mortality rate in the world. We'll be donating a portion of each bag sold to this incredible initiative.
In the spirit of sharing and seasonal transition, we sought to create a blend that pleases everyone around the holiday table. Sister Winter has an approachable caramel flavor and rich body, with dried cranberry sweetness and subtle florals. To celebrate the seasonal shift from Northern to Southern Hemisphere coffees, the blend is a combination of our first Southern Hemisphere offering, Piña from Colombia, with two of our favorites from East Africa, Gondo and YirgZ. It's a great-tasting coffee, and we think it's also a great way to give back a bit to the global coffee community.
