12 Days of Coffee: Madcap Coffee Company - Holiday Fusion
Parents - they're hard to trust when it comes to gift giving. Sure they mean well, but if you get one more pair of Long Johns and weird argyle socks this Christmas you may just lose your mind (UGH! Stop embarrassing mom and dad!). Keep it to the classics - killer vinyl, a new skateboard, and Madcap's Holiday Fusion! The pinnacle of cool, this delicious Holiday Blend of Kenyan and Guatemalan coffees is best enjoyed while jamming out to your favorite record or in between kick flips in your driveway.
We're excited to spend twelve days of the month highlighting delicious coffees coming from roasters near and far. All of which are available in the holiday blends section of our website! Reach for a mug and pour yourself a little holiday cheer with your coffee!
Madcap Coffee Company:
A little background on the blend from the Madcap team...
Holiday Fusion is 50% Karinga, Kenya and 50% Agua Dulce, Guatemala. The Karinga imparts lots of sweetness and vibrant cranberry acidity and the Agua Dulce adds some nice berry qualities and even more structure, making the cup very full and deep. This coffee is very versatile and can be enjoyed in any brew method. If you are making a pourover, try a 17:1 water to coffee ratio and and shoot for 3-4 minute brew time. If you are making a v60, that time should be closer to 2 1⁄2 - 3 minutes.

Madcap Coffee's big plans for 2018...
As always, we will be releasing new and exciting coffees from all over the globe. Some will be old friends as well, but the coffees never get old. We love seeing crops change and improve year after year. Look for us to highlight our partners in new ways and also look out for some very special offerings toward the end of the holiday season and at the new year.
