Staff Picks: Crowd-Pleasing Blends

Staff Picks: Crowd-Pleasing Blends

A little something for everyone.
by Amanda Abene | November 09, 2021

We love discovering new coffees at home as much as you do! So, we’re letting you in on Team Trade’s current favorites with our weekly series, Staff Picks.

Blends make the coffee world go round and we’re blend lovers here at Trade. The time and effort our roasters put into perfecting the balance between two coffees is truly awe-inspiring.

They also offer a little something for everyone, making them true crowd-pleasers. As the weather gets cooler and we move into the holiday season, these coffees will keep you and your family cozy by the fireplace (or faux TV flames)!

How could I not add one of our first holiday blends of the season?! It’s the perfect coffee to transition from fall vibes to total twinkle lights. Candied citrus and baking spices make this brew shine with a sweet fudge finish that feels like a blast of heat coming in from the cold.

You’ve heard of a holiday blend, but have you ever heard of a Thanksgiving blend? Thanksgiving can sometimes get swept under the holiday rug but Red Rooster wants to remind you that there’s always something to be grateful for. Coffee is a must in my family’s post-turkey dinner and this blend keeps everyone happy. Drink it black or with creamer, hot or iced, or any way in between — this coffee can do it all. One dollar from each bag of this coffee sold will also benefit Educare Haiti.

Mornings are typically rushed so there’s little room for enjoying family time while sipping coffee. By the evening though, we're craving something warm that won’t keep us up at night. Bella Luna to the rescue. This is a decaf that my whole family loves. You would never guess it’s decaf and you’ll adore this bold and dark classic coffee with a smooth and chocolaty body.

Despite the name, this Airship coffee is for movers and shakers at all times of the day. This dark roast keeps everyone satisfied, even my light roast-loving self because it’s one of the most balanced dark blends I’ve had in a long time. My family loves the classic taste and body that holds up to milk and sugar. Drinking it black, I love the bittersweet chocolate notes and a hint of orange zest at the finish rounds out the flavors beautifully.
