 Holiday Coffee Blends

We’ve got a special treat for you this holiday season. Joebella Coffee Roasters has the following wonderful seasonal coffee flavors they’re sharing with us: Pumpkin Spice, Winter Cherry, Winter Spice, Vanilla Nut, and Caramel Macchiato. Each of these flavors has the most inviting aroma that’ll have you reveling in the winter season as you cozy up by the fire with a warm, snugly blanket and your festive cup of Joe.

The flavors that Joebella uses are not tasted, but are instead made enjoyable by their enticing fragrance. This method of flavoring allows the coffee connoisseur to savor the true essence of coffee along with a subtle hint of holiday flavors. 

Flavorings – Each is a blend of organic coffee with natural, organic flavors

Winter Spice: Cinnamon flavor
Vanilla Nut: Blend of Vanilla and Hazelnut flavorings
Winter Cherry: Blend of Vanilla and Amaretto flavorings
Caramel Macchiato: Blend of Vanilla and Caramel flavorings
Pumpkin Spice: Blend of cinnamon, ground cloves, nutmeg, allspice, and ginger 

We are now taking orders for seasonal coffees.
First deliveries will be going out the week of November 11th.

Fresh Local Catch:
Monday – Friday:
Local Fresh Frozen Wild King Salmon 

When you’re at the fish counter looking for a fillet of wild salmon, you can bet the fish sitting on a bed of ice labeled as “fresh” is in fact a thawed, frozen fish. Believe it or not, that’s a good thing.

However, if your fishmonger insists that you’re looking at a piece of fresh salmon that has never been frozen, be very skeptical. Unless that fillet of “fresh” salmon was airlifted overnight from the fisherman as a special offering (in which case, it’s likely going to cost you way more than you’re used to paying for salmon), it ought to have been frozen shortly after being harvested from its waters to preserve it at the peak of its freshness.  We hope you enjoy the salmon!
