1. It means Christmas has officially started
Admit it. You’re one of those people that has their head turned by the boxes of Quality Street that start to appear in shops around early November. But there’s no need to watch strangers scoff at your prominent light display as they pass by your house, not anymore. It’s time for advent calendars, so that means Christmas is really here.
2. There’s already enough C grade chocolate floating about
Sure, chocolate’s more traditional. But given those aforementioned Quality Street, the unwanted tins of Roses you’ll get, the Hotel Chocolat boxes given as gifts by people who weren’t sure what else to go for and the endless parade of Chocolate Oranges, you’re probably good in that department. Switch to coffee instead.
3. Festive chaos means you’ll need all the caffeine you can get
Never mind the presents you have to get for people you actually like – the most tiring part of Christmas is hitting that perfect balance between ‘you’re a literal stranger’ and ‘we’ve worked together for eight years’ for your office’s secret santa. Combine that mental exhaustion with a solid day of running up and down the high street, and you’ll need that daily pick-me-up.
4. Work dos, ‘friendsmas’ and “screw it, it’s Christmas” drinks
And if the frantic present shopping wasn’t bad enough, you’re probably going to have to do it all mildly hungover. Whether it’s the dark, long evenings, the ill-advised craving for a cozy night in with a bottle of Baileys or the endless parade of parties, it’s not hard to overdo it. Take the edge off, with a no fuss filter coffee every ‘morning after’.
5. You’ll try 25 incredible coffees, simple as
Eight different origins, ten coffees from our Micro-Lot range, one sachet of the awarding-winning Mohlon Casa, and one of our first (customer chosen!) Kenyan coffees, Karinga Peaberry. That’s just a little taster of the utterly delicious, and incredibly varied, cups of coffee you have in store – not to mention a beautifully designed box and coffee cards, complete with cracker-worthy jokes and facts about Christmas around the world. Buy yours now, to get it before 1st December!
