Holiday Blend is an exciting outlet for us to simultaneously showcase our favorite seasonal offerings while creating a blend that we think best represents the flavors of the holiday season. This year's Holiday Blend calls upon three coffees from three unique growing regions that, together, create a dynamic bouquet of festivity and cheer.
Joining us from the Nariño Department of Colombia, in the central Andean mountain range, Yacuanquer provides a lovely base for this year’s blend. Dense fruit and a juicy sweetness pair wonderfully with the more complex African coffees we have selected for the blend.
Next, from Ethiopia, returning Verve favorite Halo Beriti adds its characteristic floral and spice profile giving Holiday Blend it’s festive bouquet.
Lastly, from Kenya’s Kiambu county, coffee from the Kiganjo factory lend further concentrated sweetness rendering this year’s Holiday Blend a perfect companion to holiday treats & fire-side rendezvous alike.
We believe the coffee experience is our responsibility from seed to cup. Coffee is our craft, our ritual, our passion. It drives us and inspires us. With this simple truth and responsibility we are bridging the gap from farmlevel to streetlevel. We are verve. Made in santa cruz.
