Ho ho ho! It’s Christmas time, and we at Fidalgo Coffee Roasters are excited to share a mug of cheer with you this holiday season!

Do you like dark roast coffee? Fidalgo Coffee does this one right—Yuletide Roast. It’s our annual tradition from our family to yours. When it’s cold outside, there’s almost nothing better than a mug of Yuletide Roast. We know Yule love it!

We make this coffee using just-arrived, fresh, new-crop, single-origin, organic coffee that was grown in the Amazon rainforest of Peru. We roast it slow and dark. You can enjoy this coffee with cream, sugar, milk or even eggnog. We’ve heard tales of Santa doing just that.

May your home be filled with the warmth of family and friends this holiday season. May your spirit sparkle with moments of love and laughter. May your days be filled with the magic of Christmas. Wishing you a season of togetherness and happiness with loved ones.

Welcome back the cherished warmth of the holidays with Fidalgo Coffee’s beloved Yuletide Roast – a sesonal tradition that’s eagerly anticipated each year. As the winter winds herald the return of festive times, there’s no better companion than a cup of this rich, full-bodied coffee.

Our Yuletide Roast, a harmonious blend from the high-altitude terrains of San Ignacio, Cajamarca in Peru, is an ode to the craftsmanship of deeply-roasted coffee. Each sip offers a symphony of flavors, with undertones of toasted nuts, that’s both smooth and robust – a testament to the organic, fair trade, and kosher beans that make up its composition.

With a lineage of coffee varieties like bourbon, catimore, cattura, mundo novo, pache, and typica, the Yuletide Roast paints a palette of flavors – deep tones from bourbon, nuttiness from catimore, sweetness from cattura, woodiness from mundo novo, silky smoothness from pache, and a hint of smokiness from typica. And rest assured, these are the bean’s natural profiles, skillfully uncovered through our precise roasting methods without a whisper of artificial flavoring.

Drinking a cup of our Yuletide Roast is akin to wrapping yourself in the cozy embrace of a winter cottage, where the air is scented with the allure of freshly baked pies, and the fireplace’s gentle warmth is a steadfast presence.

Yuletide Roast

The perfect gift for the Holiday season – even if it’s just a gift to yourself. 😉

Our partnership with CENFROCAFE, a co-op of over 3,000 farming families, ensures that every bean enriches not just your cup but also the lives of those who cultivate them. With each purchase, you support sustainable wages, environmental care, and safe working conditions.

As the beans journey from harvest to roast, they’re fully washed and sun-dried, ensuring clarity in flavor. And it’s in our roasters in Burlington, Washington, where the magic culminates – a dark roast that’s rich and smooth, never burnt or bitter.

The Yuletide Roast isn’t just a coffee; it’s a festive ritual, a yearly delight that’s become a part of the holiday fabric. So, gather around, share stories, and savor the season with Fidalgo’s Yuletide Roast. And if you’re curious to explore more, take our Coffee Finder Quiz to discover a roast that’s just right for you.

Autumn brings a touch of nostalgia — from the crackling bonfires and crisp mornings to the kaleidoscope of foliage and pumpkins adorning porches. It’s the season of warmth and reconnection, a perfect time to cherish our friends and family. The best connections are forged in quiet moments, away from life’s hustle. These authentic encounters often happen during a peaceful drive through the countryside, a relaxing afternoon on the couch, or gathering for a jam session after a busy week. It’s in these shared experiences that we find joy.

At Fidalgo, we’re dedicated to enriching your connections in a truly genuine and lasting manner. In contrast to the fast-paced world of mass-produced coffee, we offer a crafted experience. Our handpicked coffees don’t just promise a delightful cup but also enhance those special moments with a richer, more authentic taste — a satisfying coffee experience.

Great coffee has the power to connect us on a profound level. Fidalgo Coffee is committed to fostering those bonds with our meticulously roasted coffee. We believe in the magic of simple ingredients, carefully roasted to showcase their full potential. Our aim is to transform these quality beans into a cup that mirrors the purity of its origins, crafting a coffee that brings people together, not just for occasions, but as part of everyday life.

The artistry in roasting exceptional coffee lies in two elements: the quality of the beans and the roasting technique. At Fidalgo, we’re passionate about selecting only the finest beans and perfecting the roast to craft a cup of coffee that deepens the moments you share with loved ones.

We value responsible sourcing and maintaining a close relationship with the farmers who grow our coffee. Our goal is to create a vibrant, exciting cup of coffee that stands in stark contrast to the uninspired offerings commonly found. For those who appreciate the depth of flavor that often goes unnoticed, we’re here to deliver.

Fidalgo sources only the finest beans, ensuring excellence in every cup. Whether you prefer single origin or a blend, the secret is starting with high-quality beans. Our master blenders artfully develop each coffee’s flavor profile, ensuring consistency and quality in every batch.

Despite some criticisms, we believe a well-crafted blend can rival any single origin. Our roasters, like artists blending paints, combine beans to create complex and imaginative flavors. This craftsmanship can result in a cup that’s as delightful to share as it is to savor.

We take pride in our roasting process, which utilizes small batches and direct flame techniques to achieve the most even roast. Our roasters’ finesse brings out diverse flavor profiles that cater to every palate without any artificial enhancement.

The natural roasting process can unveil a spectrum of flavors — from caramel to fruity — creating a perfectly balanced cup that coffee enthusiasts adore. Our coffees might surprise you at first with their distinct taste but give them a chance, and you’ll come to appreciate the natural flavors of this beloved bean.

Fidalgo caters to all preferences, including white, light, medium, dark, and decaf roasts. Unsure of your favorite? Try our Yuletide Blend — a festive concoction with notes of toasted nuttiness, perfect for the holiday season.

We invite you to make Fidalgo part of your coffee ritual, whether you’re sharing a cup with a friend, enjoying a scenic drive, or simply taking in the autumn view from your porch. Trust in the simple, quality ingredients that make Fidalgo a standard-bearer for great coffee. Let this season be one of meaningful connections, with a cup of Fidalgo in hand.

Did you know you can make cold brew yourself? As an insider with the Fidalgo Coffee community, here’s a tip:  cold brew can be made with any coarse ground coffee.

Summer is a wonderful time to enjoy the sunshine with family and friends. Whether you are soaking up the rays on a beach towel at a family outing, hosting friends in your backyard for a social, or attending a public event with your besties, we invite you to keep cool with your favorite specialty coffee over ice.

If you want to keep it simple or don’t have the time to make cold brew yourself, Fidalgo offers two options you can buy, specifically roasted and ground for cold brew. You can purchase these online or in the Fidalgo store:

Ready for a new recipe idea? Introducing Cinnamon Cold Brew.

An easy way to spice up your next cold brew batch is to add a few cinnamon sticks while your batch is brewing for a cinnamon-infused coffee taste in every sip. If cinnamon isn’t your first choice, then we invite you to make your best cup by pairing cold brew with your favorite sweetener, syrup, specialty flavor, or milk. There are so many fun, creative, and tasty ideas for coffee. The sky is the limit!

We hope you’re enjoying an iced coffee this very minute! Thank you for taking the time to reconnect with us each month and the Fidalgo Coffee community. We hope our monthly conversation encourages you to find your best cup of coffee, sample our seasonal blends and live inspired.

The first half of the year is over. No matter how difficult or how great the first six months of the year were, today, we can choose a mindset to finish the year strong. Here is some motivation from us to you. July is a:

“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning. But anyone can start today and create a new ending.” A clever perspective. Interestingly, Quote Investigator doesn’t know who said these words of wisdom first! It could have been Zig Ziglar, C. S. Lewis, Carl Bard, James R. Sherman, Philadelphia Eagles Football Team, Barrie M. Tritie, Dennis Reinhart, Maria Robinson, Jessie Jones, or Michael York. So, while we are unsure who to credit this advice to, we do know 100% these are words to implement in July.

July is Summer.  Summer is sunshine. If for any reason you can’t find the sunshine, we encourage you to be the sunshine. For you and others. You can do it! And the world will applaud you.

One way to find some happiness is by adding our seasonal blend Summer Breeze to your day. Summer Breeze may just become your favorite cup of coffee, ever. The only way you will know is to give it a try. We encourage you to order today because Summer Breeze, just like summer, doesn’t last forever.

Summer Breeze. Available now for delivery to your front door. It’s a medium-light roast, smooth, and easy to drink with notes of cherry, caramel, apple cider, and pear. At Fidalgo, we especially love to brew this coffee as espresso because it naturally produces a beautiful and luscious crema and toffee mouthfeel.

Our wish for you each day in July is that you watch the sunrise, experience a refreshing summer breeze each afternoon, have cherished moments to remember from dawn until dusk, and relax to a stunning sunset. Thank you for your friendship and your business. Until next month, we wish you good health, joy, and a strong start to the rest of 2023.

Blending different types of coffee beans is like cracking open the world and discovering a vast array of options to create new and exciting flavors. Unlike other industries like wine production, coffee blending offers a more global palette to producers, free from baffling regulations and inherited laws. In the Fidalgo 9 Bar, we combine two unique growing regions to create a whole new flavor.

This 50/50 blend combines the sweet and subtle chocolate notes of Guatemala coffee with the winey, fruity, and bright acidity of fully-washed process Ethiopian coffee. These vibrant characteristics shine in a lighter roast, allowing you to focus on the “terroir” of the beans in your coffee experience. Blending coffee is an art, and the combination of these two very distinct origins is a wonderful example of that magic.

The Fidalgo 9 Bar is made up of 50% Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Adame Gorbota and 50% Guatemala Huehuetenango Adiestso, both fully washed, meaning the skin of the cherry is removed from the bean, and then thoroughly washed with water, removing any remaining pulp. Additionally, both coffees are certified organic, shade-grown, and fair trade.

Yirgacheffe is located in southern Ethiopia within the mountainous region of the Gedeo zone, ranging from 5500 to 6500 feet above sea level. Some of its unique flavors can include Meyer lemon, tangerine, blueberry, vanilla, and black tea. On the other hand, Huehuetenango is located on the border with Mexico at an elevation of over 11,800 feet, making it the highest coffee-growing region of Guatemala. Known as the “Place of the Ancients,” its flavor notes resemble chocolate, plum, caramel, almond, maple syrup, subtle spice, “woodsy,” and floral notes.

Fidalgo’s 9 Bar received a 92-point rating from The Coffee Review and quickly became a staple in Fidalgo’s featured specialty labels. Combining the Ethiopia coffee profile, with its wild berry notes and tangy citrus, with the Guatemala beans produces a complex, flavorful, and aromatic experience.

After cupping several batches of 9 Bar over time, some unique descriptors consistently show up: an unexpected scent of watermelon right after the grind and dark fruit flavors like blueberry, plum, and dried figs. Other notes include dark baker’s chocolate, toast, and red wine. The color is light, but the flavors are abundant. This is a great coffee for the taster who appreciates all the nuances and uniqueness these two regions bring together. Pair it with a lemon poppyseed scone, a slice of key lime pie, or a homemade PBJ!

April 1 – 30th is the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival.

Historically, the tulip is a symbol of paradise on Earth. Your Fidalgo Coffee team invites you, your family, and your friends to visit our beautiful community during the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. Experience the breathtaking splendor nature creates in millions of blooms across acres of brilliant color.

The annual Skagit Valley Tulip Festival is the largest in Washington state. It’s the second largest tulip festival in the US by acreage of tulips, number of farms, and days of blooms. 

There isn’t one location you go to for the festival. The fields are centrally located in the valley between La Conner and Mt. Vernon. Four primary farms create the color brilliance: 

While many visitors experience “Tulip Time” as a driving tour, your Fidalgo Coffee team wants you to know the festival offers much more! All four farms offer their own unique experiences.  From teatime in the tulips to guided painting classes, photo ops, u-pick, and beyond, you can personalize your trip with advanced planning by visiting the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival website or a summary of the four farm growers.

The timing of your visit is critical. Tulips bloom according to the weather. As our friends, we want you to know that this season is running behind schedule, so you may want to wait until mid-April to visit. See this news article from The Bellingham Herald about the bloom timing:

“The 2023 Skagit Valley Tulip Festival officially starts on April 1, but local growers anticipate a late bloom that may not coincide with the festival’s start date. “It’s just been cold,” said Tulip Valley Farms CEO Andrew Miller in a telephone interview with The Bellingham Herald. “We’ve seen a lot of cloudy days, so the soil doesn’t get the warmth from the sun that it needs, and tulips are 100% temperature driven.” Read more at: https://www.bellinghamherald.com/news/local/article273564570.html#storylink=cpy

While the blooms may be late, you can order the Fidalgo seasonal Tulip Festival Blend now!

We hope you will visit our community during this year’s Tulip Festival. The grower’s expectation is this will be our most colorful spring yet. The daffodils will still be blooming in early April, followed by the tulips in mid-April. Wishing you safe travels, a magical experience, and our Tulip Festival Blend coffee in your travel tumbler.
