Technically this isn’t a NEW coffee. We’ve been doing The King’s Daughters Inn House Blend for about a year, and launched the decaf about the same time. Many of you were more clever than me, and either bought each coffee and blended them yourself, or somewhere along the line you asked me to blend them. We’ve been selling the half caf version to those who specifically asked for it since last winter – I know this because that’s when the label was made. But due to its popularity, this product now has it’s own listing on our website, so please feel free to order away. While I was at it, I updated all The King’s Daughters Inn coffees to include larger put-ups, which are at a slight discount to the one pound put-up (2 lb is 5% off, 5 lb is 10% off).
For those of you who don’t know this coffee, some background is in order. The King’s Daughters Inn is a newly renovated bed & breakfast in Durham, North Carolina. Deanna and Colin Crossman were looking for a signature blend that matched the elegance of the property as well as their environmental sensibilities (the Inn incorporates incredible “green” technology and has won awards for being eco-friendly). Accordingly, we selected coffees grown and processed in sustainable ways, on small farms.
In the cup, these coffees are clean and elegant, with rounded flavor profiles containing soft fruits, such as white grape and pear. We blend them as melanges, meaning mix of roast levels, for added complexity and just a HINT of dark roast flavors.
If you’re ever in Durham, plan to visit the Inn. And even if you never set foot in Durham, you can now enjoy all of The King’s Daughters Inn coffees at home.
