Specialist coffee supplier Cherizena has launched a Christmas cracker with this year’s festive flavour.

Available to café, restaurant, pub, retail and food service trade customers now, and later in the year by mail order to consumers, the Christmas Coffee has an aroma reminiscent of Christmas pudding.

The limited edition Christmas Coffee has been created by flavouring the Colombian Excelsior medium bean with a delicious combination of rum, hazelnut, cinnamon, vanilla, orange and pecan nut flavours.

Last year, the Leicestershire-based company sold around three quarters of a tonne of its Christmas Coffee to food service customers, to retailers and to its customers in the UK and abroad.

“Last year’s blend was so popular that we’ve kept to a similar recipe for the Cherizena Christmas Coffee 2011, but have just added a little bit of hazelnut and a touch of pecan nut,” said Kate Jones, who runs Cherizena, based at Wartnaby, near Melton Mowbray.

Offering up to 30 single origin coffees and blends, and 20 different flavoured varieties, Cherizena has coffees to suit all tastes. It is a leading UK specialist producer of coffee, and sources premium, rare and speciality coffees, as well as creating its own range of superb flavoured coffees.

The Christmas Coffee is one of its limited edition flavours. It can be branded for trade customers, and is available in packs up to a kilo in size. It can also be teamed up with Cherizena’s “snip and pour” packs for filter machines, which are available in boxes of 50, including filter papers.

Orders are now being taken for trade customers, with a 10% discount given on trade orders placed before the end of September 2011.

The Christmas Coffee will be available on its own or as part of festive gift sets online to consumers from the end of September 2011 at www.cherizena.co.uk
