It's Time For Tea
We're not ready for pumpkin season so, here's some herbal tea from Haiti instead.
We've known our friends at Mel'Ange Tea in Port-au-Prince, Haiti for over seven years and truly love what they do.
For a limited time we've paired some of their teas with our Cassiopeia coffee blend to keep the summer vibes rolling.
Now Available: Our Ethiopian Queen
When we launched Bearings, we figured that naming a couple of coffee blends after alluring characters might be a more fun way for you to enjoy coffee. In this era of 'speciality coffee,' what the hell does 'speciality' even mean?
During a visit to Bryce Canyon, Utah, a designated Dark Sky Place, a ranger showed us Cassiopeia's constellation during what's called a night sky tour. After learning about her distinctive 'W' star pattern, the ranger described Cassiopeia as the 'Ethiopian Queen who lives in the stars.' We thought her name would be a great one for an Ethiopian coffee blend.
We hope that Cassiopeia encourages you to look up from your coffee for a moment and up at the night sky. It's big and bright, full of mystery and totally free. It's said that Cassiopeia was boastful about beauty; cheers to that and to taking some time later tonight to look up at the sky and enjoying the experience.
Ireland's Warrior Queen (Fall Return)
Queen Maeve was our first coffee and is our signature product. She was first launched as a blend of Colombia, Sumatra and Ethiopia. To celebrate our first anniversary in March 2018, she returned as a limited edition single origin.
Traditionally, the 'Irish Coffee' has been associated with booze, yet the drink itself has far more coffee in it. We concentrated on the coffee and named it after an Irish cultural icon named Maeve, Ireland's warrior Queen.
Enjoy reading about Maeve and embrace Ireland's cultural heritage. To reimagine what being Irish means is good for you.
