Ugly Mug has started a new process of flavoring coffee. The old way to do it is to spray the beans with flavor, let them soak for several days, and (in a nutshell) you have flavored coffee!
The problem with this process is that the entire bean never really absorbs all of the flavor. Which means you're not getting the full expirience that you're intended to have.
The new process we have developed involves taking the grounds instead of the actual beans, and flavoring them completely. This way everything is coated evenly. When the grounds are evenly coated you get the full flavor profile you're intended to have.
This is why we've decided to discontinue the whole bean option in our flavored coffees. Don't be alarmed! You can still get universal drip ground in a 12 oz bag, adn you can still get whole bean in a 5lb bag. However whole bean option in 12oz bags of flavored coffee is no longer available.
Thank you for understanding and being a loyal fan and supporter of Ugly Mug Coffee! :-)
