Caribou Coffee (www.cariboucoffee.com) announced that for the first time ever this holiday season, it will be partnering with Faribault Woolen Mill Co., a historic mill in Minnesota established in 1865, to provide fans with luxury items that are not only perfect for holiday gifts, but are also a piece of history.
With strong regional ties and a commitment to quality and artistry, these two Minnesota-based brands are proud to offer Caribou guests this first-ever co-branded holiday collection, which naturally speaks to the companies’ shared values of community and tradition.
“For nearly 150 years, Faribault woolen products have been woven into the fabric of American life and Caribou is truly honored to partner with another Minnesota company that is equally as defined by its commitment to artisanal, premium products and the communities it serves as we are,” said Mike Tattersfield, president and CEO of Caribou Coffee. “It is our hope that these exclusive products bring warmth to our guests not just this holiday season, but for years to come.”
The collection will include a wide variety of high-quality merchandise such as coffee sleeves, phone sleeves with pocket, tablet sleeves, key chains, ceramic tumblers with sleeve and lodge style throws. With limited quantities at each Caribou location, these exclusive products are holiday “must-haves” for Caribou fans.
The Faribault Woolen Mill Company is an American manufacturing company specializing in the production of woolen and other woven-fiber goods. Established in 1865 on the banks of the Cannon River in Faribault, Minnesota, this family-owned mill has been dedicated to designing, weaving, and distributing the finest quality products from its extensive line of experienced craftsmen. It remains a living testament to the ever-fading art of American-made excellence and one of the only mills left in our country fully integrated to produce product from start to finish under one roof.
“At Faribault, we couldn’t be more excited about partnering with another iconic Minnesota brand like Caribou,” said Paul Mooty, president and CFO of Faribault Woolen Mill Co. “These co-branded warm blankets and woolen products are reflective of the cozy coffeehouse environment that Caribou provides in its coffeehouses, and we’re thrilled to share the mill’s rich history with Caribou guests this holiday season with gift offerings that are destined to become heirlooms.”
Additionally, back by popular demand and starting on November 7th, Caribou Coffee will once again feature the limited-time-only Spicy Mocha on its extensive beverage menu. Made with real chocolate chips and a kick of ancho and chipotle chilies, this rich chocolate mocha fan-favorite is a zesty and delicious way to stay warm and spice up the holidays.
Along with the launch of Spicy Mocha, Caribou will begin offering its other annual holiday favorites to kick-off the season:
— Reindeer Blend: A holiday coffee with components of spicy ginger, clove and sweet cinnamon.
— Fa La Latte: Creamy eggnog mixed with espresso, whipped cream and a dash of nutmeg.
— Ho Ho Mint Mocha: Milk, dark or white chocolate mocha with mint syrup, topped with crushed peppermint candy and whipped cream.
— Gingerbread: A moist, lightly spiced slice of traditional gingerbread topped with buttercream icing.
Caribou will also offer an array of gift sets, ornaments, seasonal treats, drinkware and more – all of which help fans to bring the merriment and coziness of Caribou to the comfort of their own homes.
And for the first time starting this holiday season, Caribou guests can conveniently give an electronic gift card. Beginning this week, guests who visit www.cariboucoffee.com will be able to select a gift amount and create a customizable eGift card that can be shared instantly to friends and family.
