Winter Offerings Include New Single-Origin Whole Bean, Cookie Iced Blended & Guilt-Free Options
Santa Fe Springs, CA (RestaurantNews.com) It’s A Grind Coffee House, a neighborhood destination serving premium signature coffees in a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere, is kicking off 2019 in a big way by introducing a premium whole bean from El Salvador, and bringing back popular coffee creations from years’ past. It’s A Grind is now brewing its new Comasagua El Tranquilo whole beans, a single country-of-origin selection that hails from a small co-op located in an ocean-influenced part of El Salvador. To satisfy fans with a sweet tooth, It’s A Grind has brought back the Cookie Gnar-Gnar Iced Blended, Nutty Cookie Gnar-Gnar Iced Blended and Guilt-Free Nutty Gnar-Gnar Latte Over Ice.
“Our lineup of Gnar-Gnar beverages, inspired by the word ‘gnarly,’ meaning to go beyond the radical and the extreme, are intensely delicious and will make you smile with every sip,” said Sam Ferreira, President of It’s A Grind Coffee House. “You can go super indulgent with our Gnar-Gnar Cookie Iced Blended beverages while the guilt-free option allow guests to splurge while sticking to their New Year’s resolutions.”
Hailing from a fully sustainable co-op of coffee farmers in Comasagua, La Libertad, El Salvador, a region known for its mineral rich soil and microclimate that create a distinctive sabor, or “taste,” the new Comasagua El Tranquilo whole beans offer a bright, distinctive citrus flavor with subtle chocolate notes. The Comasagua El Tranquilo will be offered as a hot drip coffee and a cold brew Toddy®, and the whole beans are for purchase in-store for home brewing.
Ferreira continued, “we’re constantly on the hunt for unique premium whole beans to introduce on our menu. At It’s A Grind, we take exceptional beans from around the world and roast them to perfection in our very own roasting facility to achieve the optimal flavor. We are very proud of our Comasagua El Tranquilo beans and are confident guests will love it!”
