Oslo’s Spring 2014 Seasonal Coffees

Spring is such a vibrant and incredible season of the year. With that in mind, for our Spring 2014 Single Origin Seasonal Coffee Menu we took on the task of selecting a line of rich and exceptional coffees.  See below for descriptions of these current Spring Seasonal Coffees.

We also want to announce that we are regularly bagging ‘The Golden Tree 10th Anniversary Blend, Mokha Java’ held over from last season, in-stores. ‘The Golden Tree 10th Anniversary Blend, Mokha Java’ was a big hit so we’re keeping it around.  Try it while it lasts!  As with all of these coffees, they are limited offerings.
