Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) October 25, 2006 -–
Believe it or not, the holiday season is just around the corner. Before you know it, the streets will be bustling with shoppers, malls will be donned with holiday décor, and the sounds of the season will be echoing through your ears – bringing with them the anticipation of seeing family and friends once again for a season filled with good times, good memories, and great holiday foods.
To help start the holiday season on the right foot, Millstone Coffee, a division of Procter & Gamble (NYSE:PG), is continuing its time-honored tradition of rolling out this year's seasonal line-up of tasty holiday-flavored coffees. Millstone Pumpkin Spice, Holiday Peppermint, and new Cinnamon Gingerbread invoke the flavor and aroma of America's favorite holiday treats and provide consumers with a taste of the season without having to slave over a hot stove.
Available at grocery stores nationwide, Millstone Cinnamon Gingerbread combines the distinct flavors of cinnamon and baked gingerbread to recreate the warm, familiar taste of holiday cookies. Millstone Holiday Peppermint offers a splash of mint and a smooth vanilla finish, and Millstone Pumpkin Spice indulges with a flavor reminiscent of freshly baked pumpkin pie. Joining the more than 40 roasts and flavors available year-round, these seasonal flavors are available between October and late December at grocery stores, club stores, by phone at 1-800-SAY-JAVA, and online at http://www.millstone.com.
"With something as simple as a cup of coffee, you can transform an ordinary holiday gathering into something extraordinary," said Laurin Sydney, lifestyle expert and author of 'Little Things Make a Big Difference.' "Many times, the holiday hostess is so busy trying to create the perfect environment that she isn't able to enjoy the company of her family and friends. This year, instead of stressing over appetizer and dinner menus, offer your guests a delicious dessert bar and a variety of Millstone holiday flavors that evoke the aromas of some of your favorite childhood treats – peppermint, pumpkin pie, and gingerbread cookies."
"At Millstone, we are dedicated to bringing consumers a wide variety of premium Arabica coffees that satisfy their many moods, tastes, and desires," said Sonny Jandial, Brand Manager for Millstone.

Millstone Coffee also makes a perfect gift. Whether you're shopping for a party hostess, co-worker, child's teacher, or even an anonymous gift exchange, Millstone Coffee is a gourmet treat that's perfect for almost everyone. And by following these holiday gift-giving tips from Laurin Sydney, you're sure to leave a lasting impression this holiday season:
1. Show that special loved one that you were truly thinking of them this holiday season by preparing a gift basket full of their favorite food items like exotic wines and premium coffees in different flavors and varieties. For an extra special flare, include a wide assortment of products that will last throughout the year. With more than 40 varieties, Millstone Coffee makes it easy to extend the holiday cheer into the new year.
2. The next time you are invited to a holiday soiree, think ahead and offer your hostess a creative gift like a mini massage or pedicure at your local salon or day spa.
3. To easily create a gift wrap that is super special, add a little something extra to the gift box. For those new red cashmere gloves, attach a brand new matching red lipstick to your ribbon! If you are wrapping the "hottest new cookbook," attach some new cool measuring spoons. And for those adorable hand-painted coffee mugs, pour a variety of festive flavored holiday coffees, like Millstone Cinnamon Gingerbread and Pumpkin Spice into each cup before wrapping.
Like all coffees in the Millstone line-up, Millstone Pumpkin Spice, Holiday Peppermint, and new Cinnamon Gingerbread are selected from only premium Arabica beans and are carefully roasted to give prominence to the flavor of the bean and overall cup taste. Available in 12-ounce pre-packaged bags, these holiday flavors will be priced in line with other pre-packed Millstone coffees. For more information, log on to http://www.millstone.com.
