Audio Blog: Sonya's Sweetest Things

Hi there, Kitchenistas! Can you believe it's 2015? The holidays were a blast. Lots of events, parties and inspiration for all to share. Getting in to the New Year has been a joy, and I feel confident that 2015 is full of opportunity.

Next on our holiday radar is Valentine’s Day. It’s a great time to pause and acknowledge the people and things you really love. It’s like Thanksgiving – only with chocolates and flowers instead of turkey and stuffing!

As Valentine’s Day approaches I like to start off and end my days noting the sweetest things in my life: my daughter, my wonderful family, my darling little dog and so many others that make my life better.

When I think about our coffees, Sweetheart Blend, Café Au Chocolat and Crème Brûlée are loved by fans of Barnie’s Coffee far and wide this time of year.

  • Sweetheart Blend is a cozy mix of dark chocolate, ripe cherries and a touch of brandy. It’s available as a ground coffee.
  • Cafe Au Chocolat has a melt in your mouth chocolate flavor that has been immensely popular. This comes in ground coffee and in our new CupUP single serve cups.
  • Crème Brûlée is based on the luxurious treat known around the world. It combines sweet cream and buttery caramel to create a coffee reminiscent of the wonderful classic French custard dessert we all adore. This comes in ground coffee, CupUP single serve cups and our new BREWSTICKS liquid instant coffee.

When gifting the precious ones around you this Valentine’s Day, I encourage you to put together you own gift basket. You may remember I talked about this before Christmas. If you didn’t read, please check it out because it’s full of crafty ideas. It really shows someone you care so much that you will use some creativity and ingenuity to assemble something truly unique. Not just off the shelf.

If you’d love to share a gift basket with your loved ones, but you just don’t have the time, take a look at some of the really cute gifts in our online store.

Dessert Lover's Gift Set

For example, our Dessert Lover’s Gift Set. It’s a jute bag (the same material coffee beans come in) with three 10-ounce bags of coffee: Sweetheart Blend, Café Au Chocolat and Crème Brûlée. It’s very cute and has a specially made Valentine’s themed insert. Check it out!

Bundle of Love Gift Set

Also, some of our coffees come in a special fuchsia gift bag. They are beautiful and show that coffee is your passion.

May your Valentine’s season be filled with love.

Until next time,
