Coffee shop, UVA player create special coffee blend
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- A Charlottesville-based coffee shop is celebrating the University of Virginia basketball program, specifically one of the players who helped the team become national champions in 2019.
Grit Coffee has teamed up with fifth-year Kihei Clark to create a limited-edition coffee called The Pass.
Clark is credited with an assist that lifted the UVA team to the final four of the 2019 NCAA tournament, which then led to the program’s first national championship win.
Grit Coffee says the special blend is a medium roast with notes of lemon candy, almond and cocoa powder.
There are 12-ounce bags available to order, and there are even some autographed bags available. The coffee shop says orders will begin to ship the week of March 1.
