This year's Holiday Blend was created with the pastries of Hungary in mind, focusing on the deployment of nuts and citrus. The roast is not too dark, a blend of coffee beans from Brazil, Indonesia, and El Salvador that creates a tart, well-balanced flavor that reminds me of cranberry or candied citrus. This morning I drank some as I nibbled on a slice of stollen, which emphasized the bright fruitiness of the coffee and was a heck of a way to start my day.
Available through Christmas, then it's gone till next year.
Tasting Notes: approachable, tart like cranberries, dried fruit notes, with a very clean finish
Facts: roasted fresh by Zingerman's Coffee Company. Shipped whole bean.
