What is Mystic Monk Coffee Mystic Monk Coffees As consumers, we have the ability to make our purchases count for something or support a cause bigger than ourselves. As Catholics, we have the moral obligation to do our best to support the right causes with our purchases. When you buy Mystic Monk Coffee, you not only get only get rich, delicious coffee, you also support a Carmelite monastery in the Rocky Mountains of Wyoming. This coffee, roasted to perfection by the monks in a cloistered community, will delight even the most discriminating palette. With several smooth and aromatic varieties, there is something to suit every taste. All Catholic monasteries must work to somehow sustain themselves. Most create and sell gifts to maintain their monastic community; these Carmelite monks support their monastery by providing the world with a fine cup of coffee. Labor is part of the monks’ daily lives: after rising each day just after 4 a.m. the Carmelite Monks of Wyoming spend their days in prayer, contemplation, and laboring to earn their bread – including the careful and even roasting of finest coffee beans. You can help to support them with your purchase of this simply exquisite coffee. The ideal way to enjoy the rich flavor of these incredible coffees is to grind the beans just before brewing a pot of coffee. For this reason, your bag of Mystic Monk coffee will be filled with whole beans – only the best blends of beans and roasted and packaged to arrive to you as fresh as possible. The Breakfast Blend is a cheerful blend of the finest South American coffee beans, perfect to wake up your taste buds and get your day started. Or if you prefer a nutty taste, there is the classic Hazelnut and the intoxicating Royal Rum Pecan. If you prefer a very dark roast, the Espresso Blend is for you. The great thing about buying these whole beans is that you can grind them at home as coarse or as fine as you want, to use in either an espresso machine or a standard drip coffeemaker. Classic favorites like the Mystic Monk House Blend and French Vanilla are also available. Love the taste of coffee but not caffeine? Or want an after dinner coffee that won’t keep you up late?
