Aroma carries a fruit loop goodness with a light caramel sweetness, and sparkling cranberries behind it.
The first sip greets you with a crisp, yet light body. Underneath, a tart cranberry note comes through. Each sip is perfectly mellow with just the right amount of tart cranberries, a caramel like sweetness, a fruit play reminding me of fruit loops, and hints of spice in the finish.
Expect lots of fruity notes, sparkling acidity and smooth caramel on the finish. Pair with chocolate, mixed nuts, eggnog, gingerbread cookies and your favorite seasonal goodies. ~ MadCap Coffee Company
I don’t dive into holiday blends of coffee much because they are usually the same thing year ’round — boasting big chocolaty bodies with spice and blah blah blah.
Holiday Fusion won me at first sip. Its unlike most of the Holiday Blends out there. MadCap wanted to provide coffee drinkers with a blend that provided an exotic experience rather than just another “gimmicky blend” and they did just that and more.
Featuring Helsar de Zarcero, Costa Rica and Karatina, and Kenya this coffee will brighten your palate and wow you with such yumminess.
It’s unfortunate that this coffee has sold out already, but I only hope they bring this back next year. This will be one coffee you’ll want to add to your coffee wish list.
