Nice Package: Counter Culture Coffee, Durham, NC @counter_culture

Early last summer, as we were beginning to think about our 2014 Holiday Coffee, coffee buyer Tim Hill came to the marketing department wanting to start a series of limited-release seasonal coffees analogous to small-run seasonal beers. We did a trial run of that concept last summer—not in a box, but in our then-standard foil-lined bags—with a coffee called Equilibrium that combined coffees from Kenya, Ethiopia, and Guatemala in equal amounts for an intensely complex coffee. Equilibrium as a concept went extremely well, so, building upon that, we brought the concept together with the box package and somewhat-officially launched our limited-release series with our 2014 Holiday Coffee. Each coffee in the series is available for a couple of months at a time, and we try to make sure that we always have one available—though there are occasionally short lapses between them.
