Happy Father’s Day Weekend everyone, and welcome to our first ever “Weekly Grind,” a new blog series to help keep you up to date with what’s going on here at Armeno!
This Week At Armeno...
Been missing our Maui Mokka? Good news! Fresh beans have arrived and been roasted to perfection for you to take home. Nice to see our island shelves looking less lonely again!
Our Double Bourbon Barrel Blend is also back in stock! This new addition has a lot of you intrigued and coming back for more, which is exciting for us since John, our Head Roaster, has been wanting to try this out for a while.
Haven’t heard of it? Essentially, John takes green sumatra beans, ages them in a former Four Roses bourbon barrel for a month, roasts the beans in small batches, and then ages them in another barrel for four more days before they’re ready for bagging. Though a bit too desserty to serve as an everyday morning blend, the oaky, vanilla notes and heavenly bourbon aroma make for a delectable afternoon cup or tasty cold brew.
Want to try it? We’ve been brewing it fresh and hot on the weekends for you to sample!
Notice some new faces milling around?
The Armeno Team has had quite the week of hellos and goodbyes.
Our phenomenal digital marketer and long-time employee, Emily Novak, has headed off toward exciting new opportunities in the Big Apple. Emily’s efforts were instrumental in our rebranding efforts last year, and her creative vision, upbeat energy, and stellar work ethic have been invaluable and a joy. We’re wishing her all the best in this new chapter of her career. Thanks so much, Emily!
We’ve also welcomed some new employees to the Armeno team. Feel free to say hello to Jacquie (a.k.a. me, hi there!) who has taken the torch from Emily to manage Armeno’s online presence, and Abby, our newest retail assistant, as we get to know the coffee and all of you!
Looking for last minute Father’s Day gifts? We’ve got you covered!
Know a dad that loves trying new coffees? Our Coffees Around the World box features a half pound of coffee from each of our four regions. It’s a great way to sample what different parts of the world have to offer, and perfect for first timers who may not know yet what they’ll enjoy most.
Also, we love Anna Banana’s handcrafted chocolates and are stocked with some special new creations specifically themed for Father’s Day! Seriously, how cool (and delicious looking) are these chocolate ties, toolboxes and mustaches? Such a neat idea!
(Sidenote: we still have some teacher appreciation boxes left if you’re looking for a scrumptious end-of-the-school-year treat to give an awesome educator in your life!)
This Week's Toasty Tidbit:
Did you know that our Maui Mokka beans are the smallest beans we carry? This smooth, fruity island coffee has a lovely milk chocolate finish and is one of owner John Park’s favorites!
