Staff Picks: Tastes Like Chocolate

Staff Picks: Tastes Like Chocolate

Leave the box at the store this Valentine's Day.

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.

While I’m not always into the commodified giant-box-of-chocolates-a-dozen-roses-and-white-linen-table-cloth-dinner vibe that often overtakes Valentine’s Day, it's still a great time to celebrate the adoration that you have for yourself, your partner, and your loved ones in the midst of the cold, dark winter.

Here are a few of my favorite cozy blends that are perfect to treat yourself or to share. You can buy coffee online with Trade to try out our staff picks and more!

Okay, okay so I know I just said I’m not into the hallmark card flavor of Valentine’s Day but who can resist a coffee that tastes like chocolate-covered strawberries and cherry bonbons like this one from Sterling? This coffee's jammy, berry sweetness and rich notes of cocoa make it downright irresistible.

Romantic outdoor activities, inside jokes, and chocolaty-orange sweetness - what’s not to love about Atomic's Loud Pow? Even better, $2.00 of every bag sold will be donated to Elevate Youth, a Boston non-profit whose mission is to empower youth to explore the outdoors alongside mentors, sharing awe and the richness of our natural world.

Reliable, tried-and-true, and perfect for snuggling up with – Wonderstate's Organic Driftless is everything I could hope to be as a partner. And its rich, chocolaty body makes it a great daily drinker.

During the winter there’s nothing I love more than to curl up by the fire with a cozy beverage. And this delicious Swiss Water Processed decaf from PT’s is rich, luxurious, and perfect with (or as) dessert.
