Holiday Gifts and Giveaway w/ Path Coffee and Cathy’s Biscotti and Sweet Treats

18 Nov


You’ve probably passed by it a hundred times.   It’s just a big brick building in Port Chester.   But, as you get closer the amazing aroma of roasted coffee beans assaults you.   This is where Empire Coffee and Path Coffee roasters (a division of Empire)  roasts and packs up different varieties of coffee.   Head brewers Johnny Steverson and Jason Richter are roasting up small artisan batches of coffee there at a seemingly endless pace.

Where the magic happens at Path!

And, just a few miles down 95 in White Plains is Cathy’s Biscotti and Sweet Treats.  Owned by Cathy Schauber, Cathy’s Biscotti and Sweet Treats has been creating yummy biscotti cookies and more since 2006.  And, guess what?   They’ve come together in a perfect pairing and marriage with Path Coffee for the holidays.  Yes, you can get 6 biscotti and a 12 oz bag of Path Coffee for just 22.58.  

But, our readers have a chance to get this package for free!   We’ll be giving away a pack of Path Coffee and Cathy’s Biscotti and Sweet Treats to four lucky winners.   To enter, show us your mug with your mug.   :)   Yes, we want to see you with favorite coffee mug.   You can be as funny, silly, witty, or tired-looking as you’d like.   All you need to do is post a pic on our Facebook wall and you’ll be entered.   The contest starts at 10 am on 11/18 and will go until end of day on 11/27. At that time we’ll randomly pick four winners.

Winners will get to pick their favorite brew and biscotti.  Here are your options:

Path Coffee Brews

SAN JUANILLO, COSTA RICA:  Our micro-lot San Juanillo, Costa Rica comes from the Naranjo region and is carefully produced by Carlos Haug and his family. Agricola San Juanillo is located in the San Juan region of Naranjo where the climate is perfect for producing coffee with an intense, sweet cup. There are notes of sweet balanced lemon, toasted pretzel and cocoa.

KONGA, ETHIOPIA YIRGACHEFFE:  Konga is a micro-region of Yirgacheffe. This is an heirloom varietal, naturally existing and changing through cross-pollination. Our Konga is grown around 2200m, this makes the fruit ripen more quickly and develop earthy, round tasting notes. The beans are left to dry inside the fruit, giving it a strong citrus flavor.  This is a coffee that is delicate in flavor, with a soft, luscious mouth feel.
CROSSHATCH:  Crosshatch is a distinct blend of Central American and African coffees. This unique but approachable blend is well balanced with flavors of salted caramel and fruit compote.
LA CAMISETA, PANAMA:  Our newest coffee from Central America, La Camiseta and is balanced and geographically interesting.  It is from a group of farms called the Baru Indian Highland Estates, located along and up a mountain towards the peak of the Baru volcano.  What we find most endearing about this coffee is its wonderful lingering aftertaste. Light-medium body, sweet floral, toasted almond and caramel notes with balanced acidity.
KORGUA, PAPUA NEW GUINEA:  From a small collection of farmers located near the Koruga Mill. This coffee is processed using a wet method- the beans are then arranged in the sun to dry. Full body and delicate hints of cinnamon bark really show just what an interesting and advanced growing region Papua New Guinea has become. Salted toffee, baking spices with balanced acidity.
FEATHER IN CAP ESPRESSO:  Feather in Cap is an espresso we spent a lot of time developing in order to create a roast that was not only tasty, but surprisingly unique. This espresso will jump out at you and make you question your idea of what an espresso should taste like. The flavors are most closely associated with buttered toast, brown sugar and currant.
SYNCHRONIC DECAF:  We wanted to source a clean tasting, rich decaf that came across as a true caffeinated coffee. We landed on a wonderfully smooth Colombian Mountain Water Processed decaf that does exactly that. For decaf coffee drinkers, this is definitely the one to try.
