Not sure of the statistics but our sales sure show a bump when the weather gets cold and and the celebrations begin. I remember years ago when we got our first espresso machine for Christmas many latte's were imbibed. Sometimes it seems like tropical sunshine is concentrated in the beans and sent north to where it is needed. On a cold dark December morning that hot cup of fresh local and delicious coffee is like a cup of summer. Winter season is also party season from Thanksgiving through New Years people put a lot of effort into their meals. That first cup of coffee on Christmas morning or that post turkey stimulant after Thanksgiving dinner that just adds that little something special that can make a good time great. Coffee is also a great gift perhaps instead of a bottle of wine at the party or if you want the gift that keeps on giving consider the coffee of the month program for that hard to please coffee drinker on your list.
