During the hectic holidays, we call coffee our “jingle-all-the-way juice.”
Keeps our motor running. Keeps our powder dry.
And this is our java of choice: Meru Coffee, from Tanzania, available stateside for a limited time.
Meru Farms is delectable small-batch, direct-trade coffee sourced from farm families near the volcanic slopes of Mt. Meru, about 40 miles from Kilimanjaro.
Most of the year you can’t buy it direct.
There’s even a trendy coffee beans subscription model.
But you’ll want to focus on Peaberry Select. Peaberries are oval beans that roast better, but only account for 5% of all coffee beans harvested. They're a limited offering, with medium body, no bitterness and tangible citrus notes.
You will be doing yourself a considerable disservice if you don’t use a French press.
Be warned: “Once it runs out, it’s gone until next year.” Order now, or you’ll have to wait until “mid-summer 2014.”
A long time to wait for a good cup of coffee.
Nota bene: Use HOOK10 at checkout for 10% off of your order.
