2012 Holiday Celebration Blend
$18; 12 oz.
This year’s Holiday Celebration Blend is a memorable blend of two Honduran coffees: Juan Evangelista’s La Maravilla and Miguel Enamorado’s Los Robles. The blend exhibits an intense fragrance of chocolate and cloves, a clean and juicy mouthfeel, with flavours of dried apricot and ginger snaps. Small enough to fit in a stocking, and large enough to share, a bag of Holiday Celebration Blend will not just brighten Christmas morning but plenty of mornings after that as well. Available online from November 30, and available at cafes serving 49th Parallel shortly after.
From $170; available in 3, 6 or 12-month versions
For the serious coffee lover, the 49th Parallel coffee subscription ensures a regular supply of quality beans. At the beginning of every month, they’ll receive three bags of coffee, with the first shipment arriving in a cedar box with the 49th Parallel logo, similar in style to a wine crate. Subscriptions are available for single origin filter coffees and espresso. The new Complete Espresso Subscription covers a bag each of Epic Espresso, Epic Organic and a Single Origin Espresso. Available for order online.
Looking for a no-fuss gift option? Various gift sets combining 49th Parallel coffee along with the company’s iconic mint blue ceramics are available both online and in limited quantities at 49th Parallel’s own Vancouver cafes as of the end of November. They come beautifully packaged and ready for giving.
