Elphaba’s Brew (Organic Mint Coffee)

We’d known we wanted to make a chocolate mint coffee – in part because Mister Tea loves the combination of chocolate and mint so much – and in part because it just seemed like a thing that should exist. A coffee with mint only was something that had been suggested, Continue Reading →

Snickerdoodle Joe (Organic Cinnamon Vanilla Coffee)

One of the benefits/drawbacks to using a Keurig for our coffee drinking is that sometimes the flavour from a cup of coffee will carry over just a smidge into the next cup. Due to Mister Tea’s habit of alternating his Malabar and his Paris, we came to the conclusion that Continue Reading →

Moctezuma’s Mocha (Organic Cinnamon Chocolate Chili Coffee)

‘Moctezuma’s Mocha’ was a natural outgrowth of living in a place where chocolate and chili are considered a completely normal combination, and having a mad blending day where we created a ridiculous amount of new coffees. It took me a while to warm to the concept of chili with chocolate, Continue Reading →

Taste of Tenochtitlan (Organic Cinnamon Chocolate Coffee)

When we are making things, often a bunch of ideas in a similar theme, either taste or connection pile up.  Other times they just string together one after another, things we feel must be made. ‘Taste of Tenochtitlan’ was one of a series of coffees made on a madcap Blend Continue Reading →

Malabar Brew (Organic Cinnamon Coffee)

Cinnamon is a taste I dearly love. We’d blended a cinnamon tea, and the taste of it made Mister Tea and I decide we needed a cinnamon coffee, as well. That was a hectic day of blending, as one idea for coffee spawned another, until we’d finished four flavours for Continue Reading →

Paris Lights (Organic Vanilla Coffee)

‘Paris Lights’ was a coffee I think Mister Tea had been hoping I’d set my mind to the moment we decided to work with coffee. It finally happened because I had a very frustrating cup of pseudo-vanilla coffee, and it made me want a REAL cup of vanilla coffee. And Continue Reading →

Sleepy Hollow Spice (Pumpkin Spice Coffee)

When the Pumpkin Spice season began this year, Mister Tea and I realized that while we had a pumpkin cocoa and a couple of pumpkin spice teas, we hadn’t gotten around to a pumpkin spice coffee as yet. This seemed in error, and we moved swiftly to fix it. We’ve Continue Reading →

Istanbul, Not Constantinople (Organic Cardamom Coffee)

“Istanbul, No Constantinople” was one of the two coffee ideas we had leap to mind initially, when we decided to let ourselves consider the idea of blending coffees. The inspiration for it was relatively simple, but relatively intense.  A good friend and I used to spend time talking and drinking Continue Reading →

Big Easy Mocha (Chocolate Chicory Coffee) (Fair Trade and Organic)

Starting to make coffees was an accident. As with the cocoas, coffee had not been a part of “The Plan.”  Admittedly, neither had tasty teas, and those have been a spectacularly good idea. We’d been given a gift for Christmas.  It was a small tin of a chocolate mint coffee. Continue Reading →
