The Shenandoah Valley Battlefields Foundation has a knack for creatively raising preservation funds. Following in the footsteps of last year’s Civil War themed wines, the foundation is offering a way to commemorate the Civil War Sesquicentennial, but this time with a cup of Joe.
Stonewall’s Sunrise is a combination of 100% Arabica coffees grown in Guatemala and Tanzania. The blend evokes ripe cherries in balance with chocolate and spices that produces a mild, balanced coffee with nice body, and excellent floral tones and fruitiness. This is an excellent morning coffee.
Jubal’s Jolt is a combination of 100% Arabica coffees grown in Ethiopia and Tanzania. The distinct and unique flavor of this blend is softened by wine and fruit overtones that produce a bold taste with a heavy body and high acidity. This is an excellent evening coffee.
Daughter of the Stars Decaf, a coffee as rich as the Shenandoah Valley’s history, is 100% Arabica coffee grown in Columbia. It has a bold taste that is not soft or subtle, it’s direct; a broad-shouldered, solid chunk of rich aroma and flavor that finishes with a very distinctive, piquantly oily note of English walnuts. Its dependability makes it a great “all day” coffee.
Whether on your way to a reenactment, a visit to the Shenandoah National Historic District or simply waking up at your desk, these specialty coffees are a great addition to every history buff’s morning. You can read more at the Northern Virginia Daily.
