‘Tis the season for celebrating meaningful collaborations between small Maine businesses, so we have partnered with Rwanda Bean Company, LLC to bring you a cocktail that gives back. Our updated Espresso Martini packs a punch of caffeine with a smooth blend of flavors that are sure to perk you up on a dark winter day in Maine. Beyond how delicious it tastes, this little martini is helping to improve the lives of families more than 6 Thousand miles away!

The Business of Giving Back
Rwanda Bean is making a real difference in Rwanda, where 50% of their profits are reinvested in the country’s coffee farmers and their communities. Their inspiring mission is only reinforced by their commitment to roasting the Grade A Bourbon Arabica coffee beans from Rwanda right here in Maine. By partnering with Rwanda Bean to create a cocktail that our customers will love, we’re hoping to help spread the word about the work they’re doing in Rwanda, while giving our community a taste of the fantastic coffee they roast and sell locally.

A Local Favorite with a Global Reach
Rwanda Bean is our treasured neighbor at both Elsmere locations, and they play a big role in both the South Portland and Deering Center communities. We are thrilled for the opportunity to incorporate their popular espresso cold brew in a winter cocktail, and we know that it is bound to become a customer favorite. Our espresso martini is made with Rwanda Bean espresso cold brew, vodka, kahlua, vanilla, mint; giving it a rich and refreshing flavor that’s perfect as an after dinner treat.
