Super Blend: Fulphilmint

ful·phil·mint /fʊlˈfɪlmint/[fool-fil-mint]
–noun
1. A new medium-light coffee blend at Philz Coffee.
2. Specially formulated for those folks at Google by Phil with love.

This new blend was formulated with those folks over at Google in mind. Google employees get stocked with this blend in their offices…what a treat! We, here at Philz, are always looking to fulfill your coffee cravings — as hokey as that might sound, we really do! We enjoy making great coffee…it can be so fulfilling to drink.

Fulphilmint is a medium-light roast (so it gets you some caffeine…) but with full-bodied flavor! It’s also smooth to drink and won’t upset your stomach because of its low acidity! We’ve brought this special blend to our stores so next time you’re in, you should definitely check it out!

Super Blend: Code 33

Code 33 is our special blend made for the San Francisco Police Department to keep them alert while keeping our great city safe, now available for the world to enjoy.

“Code 33″ in police radio talk, means that there’s an emergency situation – emergency radio traffic only. Maybe it’s only a caffeine emergency…at least, we can hope, right?

This blend is great for those morning emergencies — you know, those mornings where your alarm clock doesn’t go off (or it’s mysteriously snoozed for an extra hour!) Or where everything else is just going pear-shaped and you want to get a handle on it.

A cup of Code 33 with its strong, rich dark roast with the spicy aroma, full body, and smooth finish is just what is needed in an emergency.

Super Drink Feature: New Manhattan

Are you still searching for your favorite coffee? Have you worked your way through all the blends yet? Do you feel like you are a Philz connoisseur and you want to try a great new blend? Well, this is definitely one blend you should explore a little further! Let’s go to New York City…or more specifically, the island of Manhattan. A cup of the New Manhattan is a cheap alternative to a plane ticket to the East Coast!

The New Manhattan blend is distinctive in many ways. It’s a medium/light roast that is filled with busy, energetic flavors that mimic the hustle and bustle of Times Square. It has flavors of wine, oak, nuts and fruit…so every sip is delicious.

And for you people watching the acidity in the coffee you drink, you’re in luck — this blend has a low acidity and is medium bodied for great flavor!

Also, try this blend mixed with the Julie’s Ultimate blend for a special treat!

Oh, and did I mention that our New Manhattan blend is on sale during the month of May?? From May 1-31st, buy a pound of New Manhattan, and it’ll only cost you $11. That’s a 31% discount off the regular price…not bad for savings!

Super duper special blends in the house!

If you frequent Philz enough, you’ve probably run across some great mixtures of our blends. Experimenting baristas and our lovely regulars are due credit for these tasty creations!

Here are some of the standbys — Philtered Soul/Greater Alarm, Julie’s Ultimate/New Manhattan, the “PET” (Philtered Soul/Tesora with a dash of Ether thrown in)…and that’s just to name a few.

Turns out there is a new blend out there named the RUBY! It’s a great mix of 1/4 Julie’s Ultimate and 3/4 Red Sea that Katie, our 24th Street store manager, created!! I’ve heard from @rubyfuerza on Twitter about it and she’s a definite fan! She even tweeted this picture this morning:

So don’t be afraid to mix things up a bit at Philz Coffee…Ask the baristas if they’ve got something to share with you!

Super Drink Feature: Canopy of Heaven

In the mood to try a new blend? According to Phil, you’ll likely discover the collection of beans for this glorious cup of coffee under the canopy of heaven.

Canopy of Heaven is a light roast and if you like your coffee light and smooth, this is one to try! This blend is bursting with lively complex flavors and sweet beans from across the globe to produce a delicious caffeinated blend.

As always, try it with our special cream, some sugar and a sprig of mint to make it just right!

Super Drink Feature: 7 Stars

Have you spied the 7 Stars name on the menu board but wondered where it was on our descriptive blend list? It’s listed under our Specialty Coffees because it truly is a special coffee. Using more premium beans than the regular blends, it’s definitely worth a try and your money.

This particular medium roast is delicious. The flavor: earthy, clean, and chocolaty and it smells of pure sweetness!

Shoot yourself to the stars!! Come check it out today and try a cup.

SUPER DRINK FEATURE: ISTANBUL TREAT

I think it’s time again for a SUPER DRINK feature…it’s been a little while since the last one and I’m sure you are looking for something great to try. This time I’m going with a tea that you can’t get anywhere else. The other coffee places have black teas and green teas but nothing close to the Istanbul Treat! This tea is a combination of black and green teas along with some spices and a little bit of mint. It’s a balanced harmony of flavors.

Istanbul Treat

Do it up our special way and you’ve got a scrumdiddlyumptious drink to perk you up…in a nice way, of course.

SUPER DRINK FEATURE: PHIL’Z MOCHA TESORA

Attention: All Chocoholics!!

Mmm,mmm, our Phil’z Mocha Tesora is so deliciously chocolately….It’s the perfect combination of cocoa and dark roasted coffee flavors that make your mouth happy. It comes lightly sweetened but we can make it any degree of sweetness you like — I like mine sweet because it tastes like I’m drinking a liquid dessert! A treat for your tastebuds!

When looking for something sweet with a bit of that good Philz coffee flavor, you should order up a Phil’z Mocha Tesora. You won’t be sorry!

(…and we do them decaffeinated too!)

SUPER DRINK FEATURE – PHILTERED SOUL

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!

SUPER DRINK FEATURE: ECSTATIC ICED COFFEE

philz11

THE ECSTATIC ICED COFFEE!!!! Working at Philz I’ve had the pleasure of trying about a million different roasts, blends of roasts, teas, decafs, smart waters – there’s even a liquor store right next door to us – but the one drink that I keep getting pulled back to is the Ecstatic Iced Coffee. Look at it, just chilling right there in front of your face, playing it ice cold. Crazy refreshing and delicious, who needs wacky syrup pumps and artificial flavors blended like some baby’s-first-coffee drink. The Ecstatic Iced keeps it real with with natural flavors and quality coffee beans that will blow other iced drinks out of the water. Plus on hot days it cuts through the heat like an expertly wielded machete while you and Indiana Jones go treasure hunting in the wilds of the Amazon (caffeine stimulates my imagination).  POW!!!
