The Gram:

Closing out a whole year of brewing is usually pretty exciting, not just to find out what makes the yearly cut, but also considering the number of tasty holiday blends and spendy geishas that are usually available. It was a great month, especially being able to share lots of these with family, friends, and co-workers as usual. Speaking of geishas though, this month brought in a few gems from Verve, Mudhouse, PT's, Peixoto, Pilot, and Nossa Familia. See the entire list below:
