Crafted using the best Arabica beans of the season, Christmas Blend Ground coffee has festive notes of citrus and blueberry, with a smooth malt-toned chocolate aftertaste.
Each year’s Christmas Blend is the fruit of many months of preparation and development. We roast and taste many samples of beans from all over the world, blending and re-blending until the perfect blend is achieved. For 2015, the secret is two African coffees, roasted to three different roast levels. When combined with Colombian and another South American coffee it results in a perfect balance of citrus and chocolate tones.
In a mountain valley in Wyoming, a small group of Carmelite Monks were looking for a way to support their growing community. After much discernment and prayer, the monks had the inspiration to start roasting coffee and selling the beans online. The first samples were roasted on a cast-iron skillet in the monastery kitchen and in 2007, Mystic Monk Coffee was born.
Since this humble beginning, more and more gourmet coffee drinkers have been enjoying the smooth, delicious taste of Mystic Monk Coffee. Most customers become regulars after the first delightful sip of Mystic Monk Coffee, and today around 85% of orders are from repeat customers. This is no surprise, as the Monks strive for perfection in everything they do and each coffee bean is roasted with love and prayer.
