Velton's Coffee Roasting Company Story

We put a lot of time and attention into creating our Holiday Blend. This year’s coffee is a 50/50 mix of Java Sunda Hejo Badak and Kenya Kagumo AA, for drinkable cup that’s bright yet approachable. Notes of sweet toffee, melted chocolate, candied boysenberry, and currant.

"I love this awesome Holiday Blend! Truly a great coffee this time of year! You will love the sweet spice to it without it being overwhelming. Enjoy this one! "

"We received two bags of this, and we really enjoyed it. It's a bright holiday mix with a hint of fruit and toffee flavors."

"I absolutely love holiday flavors and blends, so this was right up my alley. Holiday spices and a hint of sweetness."

"Brewed with toddy ~12 hours and also brewed a couple of espresso shots. Delicious either way, loved the holiday smell and the sweet balanced taste. Pairs well with warm or cold milk."

"Bold and spicy. Notes of cardamom and clove. Screams the holidays so be ready!"

"This was an ok coffee. A bit darker tasting than I was expecting it to be since it was a light roast and not very sweet. "

"This is an AMAZING holiday brew. Dark and robust with a mellow aftertaste. The currant is the star of this show! Highly recommend!"

"Brewed as a pour over in my chemex, this is a perfectly fine coffee. Overall, however, there is nothing terribly remarkable about it. No tasting note really stands out against the others. A good "nothing special, everyday" coffee to drink. "

"The balance and body of this coffee are nice, aroma and flavor notes aren't strong. Brewed best in a french press where I could taste some fruity & cocoa notes when hot and the coffee was richer. Finer grind helped the flavor. Aftertaste was pleasant and it finished sweet."

"I prepared this as a pour over using a v60. I wasn't able to pick out the champagne or red currant notes and it didn't come off as overly fruity. Overall a good cup, just not one that I would seek out. "

"Just received the Holiday Blend from Bean Box. I brewed the coffee in my drip coffee maker. I couldn't really discern the chocolate syrup, toffee, boysenberry or red current. It smells good but I don't really taste anything listed in the taste notes."

"Loving the brightness of this holiday blend. The berry flavor has come out very well with my v60 for a great pick-me-up on cold mornings, but with warm chocolate notes that effect a soothing finish. So glad the Kenya AA is in this year's blend."

"Nice balanced bean holds up well to both espressos and macchiatos. "
