UTICA, N.Y. ---- Anyone that walks into Utica Coffee will quickly find out that when it comes to a tasty brew, there's no shortage of choices. Now the Coffee shop is adding a new flavor to its long list of choices. The Utica Fire House Blend officially hit the shelves Friday.
One of Its creators is Anthony Zumpano, a Utica firefighter that tells NEWSCHannel 2 is a recipe unlike any other.
"I had a recipe that I wanted to put together and I discussed with Frank and we made one small change.
It has 50% percent Columbia supremo in, 25 percent Brazil Cerrado, and 25 percent Mexico Organic." said Zumpano.
Utica Coffee owner Heather Delia said its a lot of flavor that ultimately benefits a great cause.
"We like to tie things in our community, so we decided to pick a charity so every bag that's purchased a dollar will go towards the Believe 271 fund," said Delia.
Believe 271 helps firefighters that are suffering from cancer cover costs associated with recovery. Delia said Utica Coffee will donate $1 to Believe 271 for every bag purchased.
"What really makes it special is that it honors the past present men and women that have worked for the Utica Fire Department. Because its the Utica Firehouse blend," said Zumpano
Each bag costs 10 dollars and is currently on sale at Utica Coffee located on Genesee St. In Utica.
