APPLE PIE SPICE
Hand blended with korintje cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, ginger root and cardamom.
Delicious and rich in spicy cinnamon flavor, the allspice provides a warm, gentle flavor, the nutmeg adds a savory note, the ginger casts hints of lemony pungency and then it's all married together with a sophisticated complexity from the cardamom.
GINGERBREAD SPICE BLEND
Hand blended from ginger, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, black pepper and allspice.
Our Gingerbread Spice is warm, earthy, and slightly peppery. Add a teaspoon or two to your coffee grounds for a spiced coffee or toss into a home-brewed beer during the last 10 minutes of the boil for a chai spiced brew. Home-brew ideas include a gingerbread spiced brown ale or a gingerbread spiced imperial stout.
Hand blended from cacao powder, demerara sugar, almonds, ancho, Ceylon cinnamon, allspice and cloves.
Chocolate has a long and storied history in Mesoamerica (this area extends from central Mexico south into Belize, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, and northern Costa Rica). The world's first chocolate drink comes from this region. The Mayan word Ka'kau' comes from the language of the Olmec who are widely considered to be one of the earliest cultures of ancient Mesoamerica. This would mean that more than 2,500 years ago the Olmec had developed a sophisticated taste for this rich beverage. In addition to early writings describing consumption of this drink archeologists have performed chemical analysis of ceramic pots discovered in a Mayan tomb in Belize that date back to 600 BCE that show residue of a cacao liquid.
