Introducing The Coffee of the Month Club

Introducing The Coffee of the Month Club

September 30, 2019 1 Comment

There is only one thing better than receiving a new box of FDC on your doorstep every month, a different flavor of FDC every month. Introducing our newest subscription service: The Coffee of the Month Club. Beginning October 2019, FDC will be sending our “Coffee of the Month” club members a different, great-tasting flavor every month to keep up the spice in your relationship with coffee. These various flavors, including those exclusive to the Club, are sure to rock your taste buds and give you that much-needed jolt in the morning.


So, what’s on the menu for October?

The first order of business will be the Ethiopia Natural Yirgacheffe from the Gelana and Abaya region of Ethiopia. A bit of a mouthful, we know. So, we’re going to call it “Ethiopian Coffee” because that’s exactly what it is. The Ethiopian Coffee is a fruity, medium-roasted coffee with hints of blueberry, cream, raspberry, and peach. In other words, you can claim you’re getting your daily servings of fruit ... maybe.


But seriously, this is why coffee that is natural/dry processed (read below) can be bright and fruity with hints of berry. That said, the Ethiopian Coffee is the perfect balance of fruity flavors and the caffeine that you need to get through your busy day.


Right. So, how is this coffee made?

The Ethiopian Coffee goes through a “natural milling process,” which basically means that after harvesting the ripe coffee cherries, they are then laid out for the sun to bake them dry. This is quite a strenuous task as the farmers who harvest these cherries must keep them on their drying beds for 18-21 days. Additionally, they must make sure to periodically rake these cherries to ensure a consistent drying process and keep them covered for a certain amount of time during the day to protect them from the harsh UV rays of the sun and, of course, the rain. Not to mention all the roasting that goes on once imported.

All of this to ensure a lot of easy-drinking coffee.


So, what do you say? Joining FDC’s Coffee of the Month Club comes with the respect and sense of sophistication you’ll receive when you’re talking to your in-laws about the type of coffee you prefer. And who knows? They might want to try it, too!

At FDC, we are dedicated to serving coffees that are socially and environmentally sourced and only the best quality that you won't find in grocery stores. Our coffee is roasted to order and delivered fast and fresh. 

If you haven't yet subscribed, do yourself a favor or even someone else a favor and subscribe to The Coffee of the Month Club from FDC.

Memorial Day is truly observed at Arlington and at cemeteries from coast to coast. It’s observed at small town Main Street parades and at elaborate ceremonies in our largest cities. It’s an opportunity to reflect and remember the military men and women who gave their lives in service of our nation.
