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.

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.

2012 Seasonal Coffee Blends and Flavors are ready!

This year we are keeping it simple at Stockton Graham & Co., and offering only our best seasonal blends! They are all “top sellers” with our customers! There is no seasonal blend that will not please your guests.  As well, our flavored coffees are bigger sellers in the cooler seasons. Coffee customers really love those comforting tastes as the brisker months come in. These sweet and spicy combinations have guests begging for more and Stockton Graham & Co. has all the flavors you are looking for.

For Thanksgiving and the fall months we suggest our Autumn Harvest Blend and our Thanksgiving Day Blend. In the Autumn Harvest Blend you will taste the flavors of dried apricots, chocolate and caramel in a way that doesn’t overpower the essence of the coffee.  With this blend you can invoke the fresh cornucopia of the fall harvest.  The Thanksgiving Day Blend is about joining together to celebrate the best coffees. Darkly roasted, this blend is a mixture of the major coffee-growing regions of the world: east Africa, Sumatra and Guatemala.

With so many flavors to choose from for fall, it’s hard to say which one is “the favorite” since the race for top is so close. Pumpkin Spice is obviously one of the customer favorites, because of its rich spices like nutmeg, clove and cinnamon. These spices remind the consumer of their favorite autumn foods. Bourbon Pecan Pie is another top choice. It offers up just enough sweet to enhance the nutty pecan flavor.  Who can forget Apple Cobbler? Since apples are abundant this time of year, the mix of apple and cinnamon makes this one a fall staple coffee.

With the winter and Holiday months we have some great seasonal coffees as well. Winter’s Comfort Blend is a heavy bodied coffee with, caramel and fruity hints. If you wish to have your customers heads filled with holiday delights, this is the coffee for you. Our Tis the Season Blend is popular for its berry flavor and balanced body, so popular in fact that some use this blend for much more than just a winter time coffee!

As far as winter flavors are concerned, there are some seasonal favorites also.  Who can resist the taste of gingerbread around the holidays? Our Gingerbread Spice captures it nicely. Hazelnut and cinnamon really make this flavored coffee a hit with most coffee consumers. Another cookie based option is Sugar Cookie. The buttery notes of this coffee paired with macadamia nut flavor, makes it another top coffee for the holidays.  Hazelnut, vanilla, caramel and coconut comprise the Winter Wonderland flavored coffee. Another great selection in the Stockton Graham & Co. line of seasonal flavors, this coffee is warm and inviting, and a must for the holidays.

A perennial flavored coffee favorite for Winter

You may already be familiar with Stockton Graham’s seasonal favorite, Winter Wonderland, but recently I’ve had a couple customers ask me what’s in it. While it is a flavored coffee, the blend of flavors is so harmonious, that the end result is simply cozy and delicious. The flavors in Winter Wonderland are hazelnut and caramel, “blanketed by a powdery snow of vanilla and coconut”.

I like mine with a shot of Monin Caramel syrup and a splash of cream. Last week, I took a travel mug of Winter Wonderland with me on my morning commute and I swear it helped defrost my windows, and kept me snug on the way into work!

We developed this flavor in 2000 upon the request of a local customer. The inspiration was a warm and comforting Holiday coffee reminiscent of baked goods, like a Seven Layer Bar.  You can taste it in the balance and subtlety in this blend. This warming coffee makes a delicious and satisfying decaf as well.

You might try pairing Winter Wonderland with comfy baked treats like Hazelnut biscotti, or whole wheat toast with Nutella and a half a grapefruit – for the New Years dieting crowd like myself. It’s also stellar with anything chocolate.

In honor of Winter Wonderland’s 10th anniversary, I made a Winter Wonderland inspired cake for my co-workers here at SGC. It’s a dark chocolate cake flavored with coffee, iced with a hazelnut buttercream and garnished with some Caffe D’Amore toasted coconut and Ghiradelli sweet ground cocoa powder. I used Winter Wonderland coffee (of course!) in the cake batter and I brushed the cake layers with Monin caramel syrup before icing to add flavor and seal in the crumbs. Yum!
