Copper is one of the strongest trends to emerge out of the 2016 International Housewares Show. It is elegant and rich, and is a beautiful material found in many common household items.
Another important trend in the coffee world is the use of the French press, and brewing craft coffee. So, when I came across the Bodum Coffee Press featuring the gorgeous copper outside housing, I just had to bring these items in for our coffee-loving customers!
We are proud to offer the Bodum French press, tea press, creamer, sugar, and storage jars all in the copper line. This is a truly beautiful and timeless grouping, and absolutely lovely to serve your favorite cup of brew for you and guests.
Bodum’s history dates back to 1944, when Peter Bodum launched the company in Copenhagen, Denmark. Renowned for its iconic French Press coffeemaker and signature Scandinavian design aesthetic, Bodum has grown into a global housewares brand with distribution in more than 55 countries.

Chai, from India, is a spiced milk tea that has become increasingly popular throughout the world. Chai in India is generally made up of rich black tea, heavy milk, a combination of various spices, and a sweetener.
This drink is so sweet and satisfying, it’s almost completely perfect just as it is. But if you are like me and prefer the flavor of coffee, add a little dirty to your Chai and this drink will be just perfect.
The dirty that I am referring to is espresso. Espresso gives a Chai Latte a supreme balance of flavor and a little kick of caffeine. It’s really fun to order a Dirty Chai, especially if you add all your preferences to your order; you sound like a coffee expert: “I would like a soy, dirty chai, extra hot please!” If you ever order your drink from a novice and they look at you funny, just tell them you would like an added shot of espresso.
If the weather is a little too warm for hot drinks, we recommend trying our Dirty Chai Latte over ice. Believe me, it’s… Read More
I find most coffee drinkers are passionate about their favorite cup of brew, even down to the brewing method. There are so many great ways to prepare coffee, but my personal favorite is the French press method. It can sometimes be a pain in the rear brewing ahead and pouring into a separate cup, so I was elated when I found the Presse by Bobble. This is one of the most amazing inventions! I am now able to prepare my fresh pressed coffee and enjoy it right from the same cup! You can literally press and go!
The Presse by Bobble is a clever one-cup-at-a-time coffee brewer that combines immersion brewing and reverse flow filtration. It's as easy as 1,2,3:
Add medium to coarse ground coffee and hot water to the tumbler and let it brew for 3 minutes.
Press. Put the lid on inner press and push down.
Go. Enjoy! Coffee stays hot for hours. I go back and forth to meetings and out to the stores and come back to coffee that is still hot and delicious! I also purchased one for my daughter and… Read More
Whether you like it brewed, dripped, pressed, or perked (if you are like me), coffee in the morning is a must. I recently read this on Pinterest and felt it completely captured my feelings about coffee: “Don’t let anyone tell you that fairy tales are not real. I drink a potion made from magic beans every day, and it brings me back to life.” What started as an action - in my late teens - to help me feel more “adult” has now turned into a morning ritual that I don’t like to interrupt. I don’t think there’s anything better to arm yourself against a dark, cool morning than a hot cup of coffee.
We're excited to launch a new signature medium roast blend from Peet’s Coffee that is appropriately named Big Bang. In honor of Alfred Peet, who is considered by some to have started the whole craft coffee movement, Big Bang boasts a vibrant complexity with supernatural citrus. It’s absolutely delish! If you are a black coffee drinker, like me, you will totally fall for this… Read More
We've long awaited the arrival of what some refer to as "one of the best iced-coffee drinks in America", and the "holy grail of coffee connoisseurs." Established in 2002, Blue Bottle Coffee opened its first location in New York, and is now a US coffee roaster and retailer headquartered in Oakland, California; and considered one of the major players in the Third Wave of Coffee, which refers to a movement to produce high-quality coffee, considering it an artisanal foodstuff, like wine, rather than a commodity. With a disdain toward the popularity of flavored coffee drinks and a passion for the taste of actual fresh roasted coffee, the mastermind behind Blue Bottle Coffee has vowed to "..only sell coffee less than 48 hours out of the roaster to my customers, so they may enjoy coffee at its peak of flavor. I will only use the finest, most delicious and responsibly sourced beans.” As simple as it is, the creation of Blue Bottle Coffee is brilliant, delicious, and a must-have for coffee… Read More

Each holiday, Peet's blends the best beans from some of their favorite regions to create the perfect celebratory coffee to share with your loved ones during the holidays. The 2014 blends have made their way to all Bristol Farms stores and are available in pre-packaged ground, whole bean, decaf, and kcups. Below are the regions and tasting notes of this year's selection:
Guatemala! One of Alfred Peet's favorite origins. Peets went into the coffee growing paradise of Antigua, where three dramatic volcanoes encircle the coffee growing microclimate. Their mission to find the tastiest beans took us to San Sebastian where they have been buying beans for decades. Here they were greeted by the tastiest crop in memory - a perfect cup bursting with superbly refined & bright flavor.
Ethiopia! The birthplace of Arabica Coffee and the greatest source of genetic (and flavor) diversity on the coffee globe. Most sought-after are the sweet, citric, and elegantly perfumed coffees… Read More
Every year, Peet’s creates a special annual blend to commemorate Alfred Peet’s start of the specialty coffee revolution, started in Berkeley in 1966, changing the way that Americans experienced the taste and quality of their coffee...48 years ago.
This year's Anniversary Blend features deep, syrupy coffee from Uganda’s Mt. Elgon, and is brightened with an extraordinary Ethiopian natural coffee and finished with sweet, washed coffees from the Pacific and South America.
Tasting notes: “Rich, vibrant and aromatic” Full-bodied and intriguingly savory with bright with exotic layers of tropical fruits.
Like every year, Peet's Anniversary Blend is only available for a limited time; through May 11th. Stop by a Bristol Farms today to pick up a bag of this wonderful coffee.
We celebrate 48 years with a great cup that gives back to our communities at origin; this year, to the St. Antonios Orphanage in Uganda. $.25 of every purchase is… Read More
