Philtered Soul
Imagine the sweetest, nutty flavors that envelopes your taste buds and that the first sip leaves you wanting more. This is a perfect blend for the winter months — it warms your belly with every sip, gulp, or chug.

This is the first blend I had the pleasure of trying when I first set foot in a Philz as a customer (before becoming an employee). Coming from the history of drinking mostly vanilla lattes from the other “huge coffee mega-chain that will not be named”, I knew I liked sweeter coffees. Jacob suggested this one for me to try and I loved it. (Lemme, tell you a little secret — it made me crave Philz so much I came back the next day for another one!)

I found out later that the Philtered Soul is a favorite of all those coffee drinkers who possess a sweet tooth. You can also try mixing it with our Greater Alarm blend. It’ll give you the caffeine punch you need to get you through the day, no matter what you are facing.

Come in and try it with our special cream and medium sweet and you will be in for a winter treat!

Health benefits for drinking Philz

There are health benefits to drinking coffee besides the caffeine buzz!

The NY Times (link) reported yesterday that:

“…coffee and tea drinkers are less likely to develop Type 2 diabetes than non-drinkers, with those drinking three to four cups a day at a 25% lower risk for the disease than those who drink less than two cups…”

This health benefit pertains to both caffeinated and decaffeinated coffees and teas.

They are still doing further studies to figure out what exactly it is in coffee/tea that lessens the likelihood of Type 2 diabetes.

That just give me more reason to drink LOTS of my favorite Philz Coffee blend, Silken Splendor. Mmm, mmm, good.

Tesora Holiday Special for December!

During the month of December, we’re having a special on our Tesora blend. Only $10 per pound — ground or whole bean! That’s 23% off the regular price! And only until the end of December…so that means you’ve got less than two weeks left to get a great deal on your favorite coffee.
