This beverage customization joins other plant-based offerings such as Caribou’s signature Crafted Press made with Oatmilk and topped with Oatmilk Cold Foam, the JUST Egg Roasted Tomato & Pesto Flatbread and no added charge for non-dairy milk options when ordering ahead via the Caribou Coffee app.

With spring also comes the return of Caribou Coffee’s Amy’s Blend. Each year the release of Amy’s Blend is celebrated by both employees and guests to pay tribute to Caribou’s original roastmaster, Amy Erickson.

Amy’s Blend features both a light and dark roast whole bean blend. Amy’s Blend light roast includes bright, citrus flavors and a hint of melon with a smooth, harmonious silkiness to it. It is also available in decaf. Amy’s Blend dark roast features a lush chocolate and burgundy tone with a silk smooth body and sweet smoky finish.

For 2024, Caribou Coffee will be supporting the International Women’s Coffee Alliance (IWCA) with a portion proceeds from Amy’s Blend to strengthen the commitment both organizations have to encourage, recognize and uplift women in coffee. These proceeds will go directly to chapters in Guatemala, Costa Rica. Kenya and Ethiopia, empowering these chapters to develop and execute programs that will achieve meaningful change for the women throughout the coffee industry in the countries where Amy’s Blend is sourced from.
