If you’re still searching for a holiday gift (or a ski trip souvenir) for your javaphile, pick up a bag of Chris Anthony’s Youth Project Blend, now available at the Bookworm of Edwards ($18, A portion of the sales of each bag of beans—custom-roasted by Hunter Bay Coffee Roasters in Arvada—benefits the Youth Initiative Project, a nonprofit outreach program founded by Avon local/2018 Colorado Snowsports Hall of Famer/Warren Miller athlete Chris Anthony that includes the Glide Project, an avalanche education course for high school-age skiers. Coffee connoisseurs can expect a full-bodied dark roast, with tasting notes of chocolate, brown sugar, and caramel. “It’s not quite a French roast,” says Hunter Bay’s general manager, AJ Payne. “But French press is definitely the way to prepare it; you can really taste the dark chocolate, and it comes out nice and thick.” Buy it, brew it, and help Chris Anthony send it.
