For the season, I've put together something new for Southern Skies - Holiday Blend. When I created this blend, I envisioned a coffee with earthy, chocolate tones that would contrast harmoniously with the more delicate top notes… something to warm the soul. With the economy in the shape that it’s in, we need as much soul-warming as we can stand!
Speaking of the economy, lots of folks are throttling back on their spending this Christmas, with good reason. Now that the pie is smaller and the pieces are slimmer, where you spend your dollars has a greater impact. Something you might want to think about is patronizing small businesses in your community. If they aren’t already, they are probably going to have a tough go at it this coming year. Your purchase may mean the difference between the continuance of a family business or seeing another Mega-Lo-Mart popping up down the road.
Have a wonderful holiday season and remember, coffee makes a great gift!
