Josh the ‘Chief Coffee Meister’

 

What: Kenya Kabingara

17481-17116-img9937-copy

Why: “I tend to always find a new roast I love, but right now I am hooked on our Kenya Kabingara. Its notes are syrupy, creamy, tart and intense with blueberry, burnt sugar, and caramel. It is one of those roasts that everyone who has tried it has come to love and appreciate. Another awesome thing about this coffee is the co-op offers incentives like school fee loans and field training to their farmers to participate in coffee growing and increase their production and quality. I definitely recommend giving this bag and keeping one for yourself this holiday season.”

Why: “The Frankenstein blend is my go to every single day. The cup pleases from start to finish with a smooth bold taste. If buying this for someone I recommend getting a few bags since it tends to go so quickly when guests are over.”

Why: “If you have the time in your routine to make the perfect brew one cup at a time, the Hario V60 series is the perfect gift. Taking the time for one cup at a time offers an exquisite extraction method and the price point of the Hario is also a bargain. For me, the Hario system never fails to bring out the richness of the different notes. In my opinion, no coffee lover should be without this stellar system.”

What: Meaningful Mug

Why: “How good my coffee tastes is directly related to the cuteness of my cup. I tend to lean towards mugs pertaining to dogs, but what makes this gift so unique is how much you can personalize it. If you know a quirky fact about a friend or family member you can find a mug that will inspire them every morning. It’s a gift that you can almost guarantee they will use daily and keep for years to come.”

 

Where: StoneFruit Coffee Co. offers a wide selection of mugs, as well as many other specialty stores. Find the one that speaks to you.

Why: “Coffee is a huge part of my life, so why not wear it too. One of my favorite apparel pieces is from StoneFruit’s ‘Coffee Is My Spirit Animal’ collection.
