Description

When creating the Boas Festas blend, we had one goal in mind: to create the perfect coffee to enjoy with your loved ones throughout the holidays. We put together a natural-processed Ethiopia from the Yirgacheffe region and a natural-processed coffee from our family farm in Brazil together for an exciting flavor combination reminiscent of dried strawberry, chestnut, and hot cocoa. We love how this blend has both the round and sweet candied sweetness, and the comforting flavors of chocolate and marshmallow.
