The Fresh Market’s new line of flavored coffees have arrived just in time for cooler temperatures. The specialty grocer recently launched all natural and spiced coffees guaranteed to intrigue true coffee lovers. With unique medleys of spices visible in the blends, each private-label coffee is a complex, decadent treat that makes every day a special occasion.
Roasted medium-dark for bright acidity and a smooth, full bodied taste, the naturally flavored, gluten-free coffee blends use 100 percent Arabica beans from Central and South America and Africa. Each blend can be enjoyed alone or decadently served with milk, whipped cream and a drizzle of chocolate.

With culinary inspirations, The Fresh Market has created four distinctive blends available year round.. The Epic Day Blend promises a great start to the day with its cinnamon, clove and berry notes. For the more sensitive coffee connoisseurs, the Low Acid Vanilla Almond blend features a darker, nutty roast. The Salted Caramel is perfect for those who wake up with a sweet tooth, while the Chocolate Coconut Macaroon offers decadence with just a touch of chocolate.
New seasonal blends will be introduced every eight to ten weeks. During the fall, The Fresh Market will debut Cocoa Chili Spice, Panettone and Pumpkin Pie.
