New Offering: The Tripel Seasonal Blend


We have a fantastic new offering for autumn!

It’s a new seasonal blend named the “The Tripel”.  Before I talk about the coffee I’d like to explain the name because the first question we’ve been getting is, “Did you misspell ‘triple’ intentionally or is your spell check broken?”  The answer is neither.

Through out our travels, one of our favorite things to enjoy is local artisan beers.  We’ve really appreciated not just the beer, but the way in which the beer is served in other countries, which is typically in a large bottle with 2 glasses.  We have fondly dubbed these large bottles ‘share beers’.

This has led us into seeking out ‘share beers’ to partake of here in Dallas.  And in my opinion, the pinnacle of these beers is the Belgian-style ‘Tripel’.  A beer that demands to be savored, shared and enjoyed.  It symbolizes not simply a brew that contains alcohol but exudes conviviality.

So, the phonetic connection of the Tripel represents the three-bean blend that it is, but the meaning of the name is much more  significant.   It is a brew of conviviality, not simply caffeine, meant to be savored and shared.  So don’t brew this blend by the cup, brew enough for two!

Enough about the name, now to the coffee itself… This  is the inaugural edition of our seasonal craft “Tripels”. The Tripel is a 3-bean blend in which the beans are connected by a common thread.  That thread will change each season.  In this case, it is the 3 great growing regions of the bean’s motherland, Ethiopia. It’s a fantastic and attention grabbing cup… heady with fruity sweetness complemented with subtle jasmine and spice notes, and chocolate undertones.  Cheers!
