Mystic Monk Coffee
~from the Carmelite Monks' website. Remember the Wyoming Carmelite Monks? Here's the latest on them.
Our Rule explains that as monks we need to earn our keep by the work of our hands. We were praying about what sort of product most people utilize on a daily basis, and it came to us that everyone needs coffee to start the day. On our side of things, roasting coffee can be very contemplative. It only takes one monk to run the roaster and bag the coffee, so it is very complimentary to our life.
All the brothers have worked together to perfect the Mystic Monk roasts, from the selection of beans, to the creation of special blends, to the final roasting. We will have many types and flavors of coffee, all available in full one-pound bags. Our selection will include Columbian, Dark Roast, Costa Rican, Guatemalan, Sumatran, Ethiopian, Mexican, Breakfast Blend, Hazelnut, French Vanilla, Irish Cream, Carmel, Chocolate Mint, Chocolate Raspberry, and Royal Rum Pecan.
The double-handed mug is our special Carmelite mug that we use in the refectory. It is an old custom in Carmel that we drink using two hands as a sign of gratitude for the gifts of food that God provides from our benefactors. Similar mugs, complete with the Mystic Monk logo, will also be available for purchase.
All items will be available the first week of June 2007. We hope that you will be interested in purchasing your coffee from us to help us establish our monastery for the glory of God and the honor of His mother. To place your pre-order, please use our printer-friendly coffee order form or call MCarm Products at 1-877-751-6377. Pre-orders placed now will be processed the first week of June 2007.
