Each year when the temperatures start to dip and we see snow in the mountains, Huckleberry celebrates with the Sister Winter blend. Among other things, winter is a time for gathering with friends and family, sharing good food and warm drinks.
We want to help you serve up something that pleases the whole crowd, from the more traditional coffee drinkers who love milk and sugar to your 22 year old cousin who's a bigger coffee nerd than you are. And of course, we wanna rock! It's pretty important to us that each year, Sister Winter pairs well with fireside chatter and some good ol' American bourbon. We're here to help you tolerate your Aunt Glenda or Uncle Steve if you need to make a detour to the liquor cabinet after filling your mug. And when you make it with Sister Winter, it's not an Irish Coffee, it's a Twisted Sister Winter.
This year, we decided to go Guatemala, squared. Two Guatemalan coffees pairing to assist Guatemalan causes. Our washed coffees from the AProCafé Growers Association pair with a creamy black honey-processed caturra from Finca Monte de Oro to create a full, bodied, rich, and crowd-pleasing blend. We're tasting subtle dried fruit, milk chocolate, and sweet baked goods.
The holidays are also about giving for us, and each year, a portion of the proceeds from Sister Winter benefits a cause we care about. For the third year in a row, Sister Winter sales will help the AProCafé Growers Associationin its efforts to improve infrastructure and combat coffee leaf rust, a coffee disease that has wrecked havoc on Central American coffee farms for the last several years.
This year we're also donating a portion of sales to Global Giving's Guatemala Volcano Relief Fund. This past June Volcan de Fuego erupted in the Acatenango region of Guatemala, killing over 60 people, destroying hundreds of farms, and wreaking havoc on Guatemalans. Global Giving coordinates with local groups on the ground to provide relief and help rebuild.
Good coffee, helping good people continue to make a life growing good coffee.
