Seasonal Coffee Drinks, Gift Sets Brew Holiday CheerDecember 15, 2016 (Published: December 15, 2016)
We’re ringing in the season with new coffee drinks and gift sets for the holidays!
“We developed these limited-edition drinks especially for the holidays,” said Crimson Cup Founder and President Greg Ubert. “They showcase the flavors of our favorite craft coffees, along with seasonal holiday flavors such as eggnog, orange peel, cinnamon, clove and nutmeg.”
Crimson Cup’s Cold Comfort coffee cocktail starts with a combination of cold-brewed chai and Ethiopian Kossa Kebena coffee that is kegged and infused with nitrogen.
This frothy mixture is shaken with a splash of cream and Snowville Creamery’s Spice Nog, house-made honey compound, and spiced bitters.
A 10-ounce serving of the creamy, nonalcoholic cocktail costs $4.75.
Back by popular demand, Crimson Cup’s Holiday Hopped Nitro begins by cold-brewing Guatemala Antigua Pacamara coffee. Purchased through our Friend2Farmer direct trade program, the coffee has flavor notes of jasmine, tropical fruit and brown sugar.
“We take the cold brew and dry hop it with holiday spices such as nutmeg, clove and cinnamon,” said Brandon Bir, coffee sourcing and education manager. “We then finish the brew with an infusion of sweet orange and tangerine peel. Nitrogenized and poured from our taps, it displays a creamy head with many notes of the season.” A 10-ounce serving of Holiday Hopped Nitro costs $3.75.
Maple Cinnamon Latte combines local Ohio maple syrup and fresh cinnamon with our award-winning Wayfarer espresso blend.
Wayfarer took home a silver medal at the Compak Golden Bean coffee roasting competition and was the 2016 Runner Up for America’s Best Espresso at Coffee Fest New York.
A 10-ounce serving costs $4.25.
Nutella compound forms the basis for two sensational new drink experiences.
Hazelnut Cocoa Latte mixes Nutella with Wayfarer Blend espresso and steamed milk.
A 10-ounce serving of the Latte is $4.25.
This drink is also an incredible hot chocolate when served without the espresso, available for $3.50.
