Well folks, Christmas is over and the new year is around the corner. I didn’t do much of the holiday blends this year. I really wanted to but in the end I was just happy enjoying the coffee that I had. I’ll finish the holidays off with the last holiday coffee I purchased.
Introducing, It’s the Most Wonderful Blend of the Year from Ceremony Coffee. Ceremony Coffee is making a big statement saying this coffee is the most wonderful blend of the year. Let’s hope that’s true.
This blends features a mixture of Mexico Santa Teresa, Ethiopia Yirgacheffe, and Ethiopia Sidamo.

Cinnamon, spice, and everything nice. Holy holiday! This coffee already from just the aroma alone showcases spice like cinnamon, sugar cookie aromatics, juicy red plums, chocolate, and a wave of wine sprouting on all sides of the cup.
The Kalita really packs a punch. I was worried it wouldn’t do this coffee justice after taking a few whiffs while brewing, but thankfully the finished cup is more than I could have wished for.
The taste is not your average holiday heavy bodied coffee layered with spice, chocolate, and pungent aftertaste. Instead this coffee does in fact carry a nice weight on your tongue, but brings a nice balance of cinnamon and brown sugar to your palate along with a nice light wave of dark chocolate and wine in the finish. As the cup cools I can taste some juicy plums and figs coming through.
This coffee tastes like its described. So good!
We’re getting splashes of big red wine and dark chocolate in the nose. Really the brown sugar, plum, and fig from the label descriptors appear in the aromatics and in the cup. The finish is light and smacks of Pinot Noir. ~ Ceremony Coffee
Well, this really is the most wonderful blend of the year. It carries just the right amount of sweetness and spice, but the wine and fruit notes really pulls this coffee together making it quite memorable.
I wasn’t expecting the to taste and smell what I did with the coffees that were used to make this blend. I was thinking more fruity with a nice spice in the background, but this blend took a turn and brought something amazing.
Well done guys!
