Caffeinate Your Christmas With Holiday Coffees From Onyx

NWA Daily

We tried Onyx Coffee Lab's holiday coffees and found them positively delightful. Whether you're new to the brew game or a full-on coffee snob, it's hard not to love having one of the nation's most respected coffee roasters here in Northwest Arkansas. 

  • Kith & KinFramily is a medium roast Ethiopian out of the Hambela district with notes of cocoa and sweet berry cobbler. As the name suggests, it's sure to be a heartwarming favorite for friends and family. 
  • Wicked good: On the darker-roasted side is Krampus, a deeply developed Kenyan coffee with notes of sweet tobacco, caramelized sugar, and fire-roasted citrus. It's as rich as it is sinister.  

It's hard to pick a favorite, so order them both and more HERE.
