Place one on a co-worker’s desk to brighten their day. Pop one in a mailbox to summon neighborly smiles. Toss a bunch in a basket by the front door to treat family and guests or give them as cute party favors.
Jennie Skinner of Apropos Roasters knows just the way to warm us on cold winter days. She’s created cheerful and delicious hot chocolate, chai tea and coffee packets to gift and enjoy.
Shown is a charming cocoa set wrapped up in a hand-stamped muslin bag with a little wooden spoon. The packs are $20 for a set of five one-cup portions.
As owner of Sefton Coffee Company on 24 N. 8th St., Skinner knows coffee, too. The shop roasts fresh gourmet coffee every day, and it’s these top-notch, freshly ground grounds that fill her darling one-pot packages tied up with string (three for $14).
With sweet winter greetings — a snowman smiling “Baby it’s cold outside” to a buck in the woods proclaiming “Hey Dear” — Apropos Roasters’ custom caffeinated, decorated treats won’t disappoint.
