Seasonal Offerings from Big Bang Coffee Roasters: The Peekskill store will have a booth at three holiday markets this month.

Big Bang Coffee Roasters is ready for the holidays with a full calendar of December events as well as the return of one of its most popular seasonal coffees.

The Peekskill store will have a booth at three holiday markets this month, says owner and roaster Elina Dart. On December 2, 9 and 16, Big Bang will have a booth at the Chappaqua farmers’ market, outside at the train station (weather permitting). It will have indoor booths on December 16 at the Hastings farmers’ market and on December 23 at the Irvington market, located at 101 Main Street.

The store also runs a subscription-based service. “We offer many options for monthly coffee home deliveries, including coffee flight packages with several sample-size bags so customers can taste the wide range of coffees we offer,” Dart says.

Currently Big Bang is offering a special coffee that’s only available in the winter holiday months. “This coffee is a medium-dark roast with vanilla notes in a rich, syrupy body,” Dart says. “It’s been a favorite for all types of coffee drinkers.”

As slow-cooked meats are a winter staple in many households, Dart suggests a dark coffee rub—she uses Big Bang’s Dark Matter Espresso—to bring out the best in the meat. “This rub is delicious on pork tenderloin, and I use it all summer on burgers too,” she says.
