Coffee specialist Cherizena has created its first batch of Christmas Coffee ready for the festive season.
Last year the family-run firm sold 2.5 tonnes of its Christmas Coffee to cafés, delis, farm shops and other outlets.
This year’s limited edition Christmas Coffee has been created using a very similar recipe by flavouring the Colombian Exselsior medium bean with a combination of Jamaican rum, toasted pecan nuts, nutmeg, cinnamon spices and a hint of orange.
With an aroma designed to be reminiscent of Christmas pudding, the Cherizena Christmas Coffee hopes to appeal to food service operators and retailers looking to add a seasonal twist to their coffee menus.
Available in both regular and decaffeinated versions, the Christmas Coffee can be teamed up with Cherizena’s ‘snip and pour’ packs for filter machines, which are available in boxes of fifty, including filter papers.
Cherizena’s coffee, which is available as beans or ground for easy use, is packaged in a range of different formats for food service operators up to a kilo in size, and in branded or own-brand packaging for retailers.
Kate Jones who runs the Leicestershire-based firm with husband Tom said:
“The sun might be shining but our thoughts have already turned to Christmas, and we’re delighted with our first batch of Christmas Coffee. We’re now taking orders from trade customers, and will expect to start dispatching from August onwards.
Adding a Christmas coffee to menus and shelves gives customers something seasonal and festive to try. The feedback from our trade customers who had Cherizena’s Christmas Coffee last year has been very positive.”
Offering up to thirty single origin coffees and blends, and twenty different flavoured varieties, Cherizena hopes to offer consumers flavours to suit all tastes.
The Christmas Coffee is one of Cherizena’s limited edition flavours and will be will on shelves in time for the start of the festive period.
