What's Happening Around Higher Grounds this Holiday Season?

We recently had the pleasure of hosting our friends Sarah and Stephanie from 9&10 News at the Coffee Bar and Roastery. Below is a recap from their early morning visit. We look forward to spreading the word on what's happening around Higher Grounds this holiday season!

“For us it’s important to give back to our community both globally and locally all along the supply chain,” says our founder, Chris Treter, who shared some seasonal updates including some details of our holiday blend “Revel” and how we chose our other holiday gift packages

Coffee Bar barista Stefen Holtrey revealed a new holiday drink on his segment. Do you have a clever name idea for our new Cinnamon Roll Latte? Check out the full video below and make sure you visit the Coffee Bar to taste test these delicious drinks.

How can you perfect your cup of coffee? Coffee Bar Manager Tim Nance shared some brewing tips. If you are interested in learning more, we’ve got more information listed on this section of our website.  

Director of Coffee Jennifer Yeatts enjoyed teaching Sarah more about a “cupping experience.” Free tours and complimentary tastings are offered every Friday afternoon. Visit this page to learn more.  

Roasted to perfection! Revel is a “post-roast” blend, perfect for the winter holiday. Watch Head Roaster Karin Thompson multi-task and share the roasting process with Sarah from 9&10. Revel is available for the holiday season and can be purchased in our Coffee Bar or online here.

What else can you do with coffee? Josh Brandt, our Director of Strategic Initiatives, revealed his chef skills and made two delicious recipes with our coffee. We loved Sarah’s reaction! Check out the full recipe on our other blog post

Finally, what's on the horizon for Higher Grounds? Chris shared the scoop including details on a new location opening up in Traverse City.
