Last fall, we brought in Desert Sun Coffee, a product that was very popular with our staff. Now, to help kickstart you into the new school year, we're reintroducing Desert Sun Coffee by bringing in some new origins and blends at a great discount!


Desert Sun Coffee is a company based out of Durango, Colorado. All of their beans are certified organic and they practice a unique small-scale fair trade. They work with Cooperative Coffees, a green coffee importing cooperative that works directly with farmers encouraging fair and sustainable trade relationships. Desert Sun also wants you to know that you can also trace your beans back using their, a website that allows you to see where a company's product really comes from and learn about their relationship with each lot.

First this week, we'd like to share Desert Sun's Blends we will be carrying in the store!  

Black Velvet: Desert Sun's darkest blend is one of the more popular blends with our Pegro customers. It's a full-bodied dark Italian roast. Its bold flavor has woody, spicy and smokey notes. 

Dark Canyon: Desert Sun's French Roast Blend is the perfect coffee for a dark coffee lovers. While it's robust and a little nutty, it still incredibly rich and smooth. 

Southwest Morning: Desert Sun's most popular blend is a great breakfast blend. This medium roast is just the right amount of darkness and nuttiness with notes of citrus and bright finish. 

Mountain Decaf: Desert Sun's decaf is swiss water processed, meaning that the caffeine is removed in the most natural way using no chemicals. Even though there's no caffeine, it's definitely still full of flavor and richness.
