For fans of local coffee roasters, Sana Cruz Coffee Roasting Company now offers a blend specifically tailored to mid-county tastes, and the visitors who frequent Aptos, a diminutive seaside community approximately eight miles south of Santa Cruz. Aptos is home to the Forest of Nisene Marks State Park, Seacliff State Beach, “The Cement Ship” and boutique wineries. The Aptosia blend boasts a smoky, nutty flavor and will appeal to coffee drinkers who like the taste of dark roast. For each bag sold, Santa Cruz Coffee Roasting Company will make a donation to the Live Like Coco Foundation, which protects Santa Cruz County’s natural space. The coffee is available in local stores and online at www.santacruzcoffee.com.
