Featured Holiday Flavored Coffees
Stockton Graham & Co. offers a number of holiday flavored coffees to add to your holiday cheer!

Apple Cobbler – What big holiday dinner is complete without a home-style cobbler? There’s something about seeing the cobbler sitting on the table, atop a crisp red and white tablecloth, that brings back fond memories of family gatherings past. Our favorite recipe calls for a filling of fresh apple slices topped off with a flaky pastry sprinkled with cinnamon.

Bourbon Pecan Pie – This familiar blend of flavors will warm your home during the holidays. The bourbon notes bind with warm pecans and create a wonderful match. Serve this alongside some holiday cookies, and the rich oak flavors will resonate throughout your home for hours.

SGC-GingerbreadChocolate Peppermint – Remember the old candy commercials? When you take one sip of this flavored coffee it’s like…experiencing the sensation of biting into a peppermint paddy, with our own personal twist: Great specialty coffee! Bold dark chocolate coats refreshing, glacial mint nuances, creating a cup so hot, it’s cool!

Gingerbread Spice* – The spicy-sweet confections of Eastern Europe inspired this coffee. We’ve captured the scent and flavor of warm loaves of gingerbread fresh from the oven and complemented it with our own blend of cinnamon and hazelnut for a uniquely snappy taste!

Pumpkin Cheesecake – This flavor brings out the best of two delicious holiday desserts. Pumpkin pie spices mix with fresh cheesecake in a rich and savory brew. This flavored treat will bring joy to your home throughout the season, and you can drink as much as you want without the guilt of traditional cheesecake.

Pumpkin Hazelnut – Pumpkin Hazelnut is a perfect combination of pumpkin spice and hazelnut flavors. If you are looking to expand your flavored coffee offering for the fall season, this is great to keep in mind. The blend serves as the perfect transitional offering, and the wonderful autumn character will warm the hearts of your customers.

Pumpkin Spice* – This coffee is an aromatic blend of autumn favorites, including the taste of newly harvested pumpkin accented by a mélange of spices like nutmeg, clove, cinnamon, and more. It’s sure to warm you up and get you in the spirit of the fall! It also makes for a great gift when given to your nearest and dearest. Forget the bottle of wine; bring a pound of coffee to your fall dinner party!

Sugar Cookie – Sugar cookies have been a longtime holiday favorite. Their simple, buttery goodness is hard to improve on, but we think our addition of macadamia nuts really sets our recipe apart. That classic cookie taste in our own specialty coffee is our gift to you!

SGC-WinterWonderlandToasted Macaroon – A macaroon is a cookie made with a paste of ground almonds. Our macaroon recipe comes to coffee with a lightly toasted sweetness, cream notes and just a hint of cinnamon. It’s an excellent choice for breakfast or for dunking macaroons!

Winter Wonderland – In celebration of the holiday season, we’ve put four outstanding flavors together in an enticing medley: a winter wonderland of hazelnut and caramel blanketed by a powdery snow of vanilla and coconut. It’s guaranteed to keep the cold away and warm your spirit with holiday cheer!

Yule Nog – Egg Nog has been a holiday tradition for centuries with old family recipes handed down through the generations, so each family’s tradition has its own distinctive flair.  With our Yule Nog, we start with the classic creamy egg nog and add a cinnamon and nutmeg flavor spike. Combined with a slightly sweet finish, this coffee is sure to delight your family and guests this holiday season.

Seasonal Blends
We also offer a number of seasonal holiday blends that complement the traditional rich holiday foods such as egg nog, sugar cookies, red velvet cake and more!  Our seasonal blends are available in bulk 5 lb. bags and 12 oz. (6 count cases) point-of-purchase coffees.

Organic First Noel Blend – The First Noel Blend is inspired by the joy experienced from gathering with close friends and family during the season. Whether it’s a freshly fallen winter snow or sharing a kiss from a loved one under the mistletoe, this coffee is a toast to the season of giving and all of our favorite things, past and present, from a great year gone by. This blend is comprised of a French Roast blend of organic and fairly-traded coffees to complement any winter celebration. Make The First Noel Blend your new holiday tradition today.

Thanksgiving Day Blend – Nothing beats an incredible cup of coffee while gathering with family and friends during the holiday season. Our Roastmaster created this blend to unite the major coffee-growing regions of the world. Flavors from around the globe come together to form a dark-roasted blend appealing to a wide variety of palates. The perfect complement to a big piece of pie, Thanksgiving Blend will top off your meal and please everyone at your feast.

‘Tis the Season Blend* – Just as the holiday season brings us together, this worldly blend has a sweet, berry-like flavor and nice acidity. Flavor aside, the feel of SGC-YuleNogthis coffee in the mouth is a sensual, tactile experience all its own thanks to the perfectly balanced body. Though designed for the holiday season, this blend is excellent year-round.

Winter’s Comfort Blend – Winter’s Comfort puts warmth and flavor back into the colder months. It features a heavy body with a sweet spot of caramel followed by a nuanced, fruity-tasting finish. Paired with a warm, oven-fresh treat, it’s perfect for weathering the wintry cold.

Christmas Holiday Promotions For Your Coffee Shop!

christmas coffeeWith the Christmas season rapidly approaching it is time to begin preparing your café for holiday festivities! The colder weather, family gatherings and shopping outings should all contribute to increasing business at your shop, yet there are still many things you can do to help increase foot traffic through your doors!

As this is a time of giving, many people will be in the market for gifts they can give to friends and family both locally and across the country. Be sure to create gift baskets that contain your coffee and other small merchandise from your shop. Other items can include mugs, tumblers, shirts, sweaters, gift cards or any other goods you may carry! Keep in mind that some people may be looking for smaller gift packages than others, so a couple of different sized gift baskets ranging in price could be a good idea. What’s a better gift than your delicious coffee beans?

Put on an event such as, “The 12 Beverages of Christmas” in December where you promote a different seasonal specialty beverage every day: gingerbread mocha, peppermint latte, chai-der, eggnog and more! You could also, promote seasonal specialty beverages by picking a day to offer a free seasonal flavor shot with every latte purchase. Be sure to promote the events in your store weeks in advance, as well as using social media networks like Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. This increases specialty drink sales by introducing them to customers at promotional prices early on. Guests will continue to frequent your shop for seasonal treats they can’t get enough of!

Bring in seasonal flavored coffees (such as gingerbread spice, sugar cookie, peppermint mocha, etc.) and offer tastings on specific days. This will open the doors for customers to try flavors they may not have otherwise tasted, which could in turn lead to bulk coffee sales. Retail 12 oz. and 16 oz. flavored coffees make great gifts for the office or family gatherings! Be sure to have the bulk coffee on display in areas where customers can easily see it, accompanied by descriptions to better help them understand the flavor profile!

Get in touch with your local bakery about what kind of specialty items they plan to offer over the holiday season. Baked goods can be a great way to increase sales, especially with Christmas sugar cookies, gingerbread men and other holiday sweets that people will undoubtedly be looking for! Set up a date for customers to pre-order so they have delicious treats for their holiday events!

Planning an event at your shop just to get people in to celebrate (and buy your coffee) is a fun promotion on its own. Set up Christmas movie nights, where you screen the Christmas films in your shop. Plan a tacky Christmas sweater party, offering prizes to the tackiest. Host a Christmas Carol Karaoke night for customers to share their “talents”. Anything you can do to spread the cheer and invite customers in your doors is a great idea! Encourage your staff to pick up the holiday cheer or even dress up in holiday attire! The holiday season should be fun, eventful and fruitful for your café! We at Stockton Graham & Co. wish you happy, and busy, holiday!
