Winter Wonderland

This time every year, we start the journey of developing our winter blend. The name of last year’s blend, Nor’easter, was quite fitting for the winter we had. Since we didn’t want to jinx it this year, we are offering up our Winter Wonderland blend to help make your New Year magical. 

We sampled a variety of single origins before choosing beans that make up this blend. The two that make up this year’s winter blend are Nicaragua Segovia Prodecoop and Peruvian Aprocassi, both Fair Trade and organically grown.

A little about each of these coffee farms – Nicaragua Segovia Prodecoop brings together 38 primary cooperatives composed of 2,300 small farmers, 30% of which are women. The co-op provides services to its members such as marketing, technical assistance, training, credit, co-op development, enhancement of coffee quality, and other social projects.

The Peruvian Aprocassi co-op was founded in 2005 and started its own financing arm to co-op members in 2009 called Aprocredi. Through Aprocredi, they have been able to provide solar dryers for each producer, nurseries for new plants, pre-harvest financing, health services, and education for children.

The Nicaragua contributes flavors of toasted nuts, caramel and a hint of marshmallow, while the Peru brings dense body and chocolate toned sweetness.  The profile is rounded out with a touch of bittersweet roast flavor in the finish. So whether you are building a snowman in the meadow or conspiring by the fire, make sure you cozy up with a freshly brewed cup of Winter Wonderland.

We're Getting a New Look

We are so excited to announce that we will be launching a new look in December. With this reveal, One Village Coffee will be getting a new logo, product design, and website. We took the time to sit down with our new General Manager, Andrea Hackman, and asked her about what you should expect.

Q: Why the new look?

A: One of the things we pride ourselves in is that our coffees are handcrafted & meticulously sourced, taking into consideration the harvest season and the farmers who worked hard to produce a quality crop. One Village Coffee is fairly simple… we are a community of growers, roasters, and faithful coffee drinkers working together to better our families, the world, and ourselves.  The new look and packaging was designed to show this message in a simple way.

Q: What can we expect with the new look?

A: I don’t want to give away too much! But, you can expect the look to be simple & hand-crafted, providing a connection to the land in which the coffee was grown.

Q: Will the look of your bags change?

A: Yes! Our bags will be updated to match our new look. One of the biggest things we are proud of is the fact that our 12oz bags will be compostable. After 60-90 days in your compost bin, only a small thin layer will remain. That layer can be removed and thrown away (it will decompose in the landfill over time). This is paramount for us, as one of our values is to be environmental stewards.

In addition to it being compostable, you will be able to re-seal the new bag. It has a “zipper” feature, which allows you to pull off a tab and re-seal the bag for easy use and storage. Lastly, the structure of the bag will change. It will now have a flat bottom so it will easily sit on your shelf, and it will be wider and shorter than our current bag.

For our wholesale customers, our 5lb bulk bags will match the new 12oz bags!

Q: When will the new look roll out?

A: We will be giving sneak peeks of our new look over the next several weeks. The official reveal of our new logo and website will be December 1st. The bags will follow in mid-December.
