Carmel of the Immaculate Heart of Mary: Clark, Wyoming
The Carmel of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in Clark, Wyoming was founded by Father Daniel Mary of Jesus Crucified, M. Carm., in 2003. Previously novice master at the Carmelite Hermitage of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Lake Elmo, Minnesota, Father Daniel Mary felt called to found a new monastery in his native Wyoming, in a landscape as harsh and as beautiful as the life known by St. Teresa and fellow Discalced Carmelite founder St. John of the Cross. The location is isolated, surrounded by farmland, rolling prairies and the shadow of Yellowstone's Beartooth Mountains. The community strives to live the authentic, contemplative charism of Carmel as practiced in St. Teresa's strict 16th century regimen, including a revival of the eremitical tradition. They fast, wear sandals on bare feet, sleep on straw and perform up to six hours of manual work a day. Latin is used in the liturgy. The cloistered monks leave the monastery only when there is an explicit permission from the Bishop, for medical needs or other serious reasons.
The monks have been roasting and blending their flavorful coffees since 2007. Sales of coffees, teas, and of their chant CDs support the construction of their new monastery.

I purchased this for a coffee and Christmas loving coworker who said it smelled amazing and was purposely waiting for the weekend to try it because he didn't want to have to worry about going to work after enjoying it!

Delicious! Other places have " Jingle Bell" coffee, but is by far the best. I even gave a bag to a Franciscan Friar for a Christmas present!
