5 Reasons To Wake Up With Wisconsin Coffee

When you think of Wisconsin you think of cheese and bratwurst, but maybe you should think of coffee! That’s right, Wisconsin makes some awesome java and other great coffee related treats. Here are 5 of my favorites.

 

1. Berres Brothers – Berres Brothers makes flavored coffees in every variety you’ve ever heard of, and some you haven’t. Enjoy classic flavors like chocolate mint or vanilla nut, or try something new like streusel cake or my personal favorite, Highlander grogg. A Berres Brothers samples makes a fabulous gift. Shop for samplers here.

2. Kringle- Coffee and Kringle are a perfect pair. Kringles have layers of flaky pastry, a sweet filling and icing on top. They flavor resembles the Danish breakfast pastries you’re used to, but the size will impress you… a Kringle can serve 8-12 people! Kringles ship nationwide at Wisconsinmade.com.

3. Wisconsin Coffee of the Month Club- A coffee of the month club subscription makes the ultimate gift for a coffee fanatic. Each month, the lucky recipient of the coffee club will get a package shipped to their door with a different type of Wisconsin coffee. Sign up the coffee lover in your life here.

4. Door County Coffee, now in K-Cups! – Coffee drinkers love the energy boost their favorite beverage provides, so it’s not surprising that many of them are on the go and want their coffee fast! That’s where the Keurig comes in. It’s a special coffee brewer that uses pre-portioned coffee containers called K-Cups. K-cups eliminate the need to measure grounds or use filters, making the coffee brewing process easier and cleaner. One of my favorite Wisconsin coffee companies, Door County Coffee, now offers their coffee in K-cups- shop here!

5. Espresso Oreo Ice Cream – The Chocolate Shoppe in Wisconsin prides themselves on the crazy flavors they come up with, and Espresso Oreo is the perfect example. This tasty concoction has espresso flavored ice cream and “heaps of oreos”. I don’t know about you but that’s my favorite way to eat Oreos- in heaps!

Food and Coffee: Return of the Coffee Snob

Kringle and Coffee Have you ever had a bite of chocolate cake, then a sip of coffee and noticed how the coffee tastes even better than usual?  Careful pairing will make you enjoy your coffee and food even more.  Not sure which coffees go with which foods? The coffee snob is here to help! Below are a few of the coffee varieties from the Wisconsinmade.com Coffee of the Month Club and some foods to try with your cup of joe.   

Columbian – The medium acidity, strong body and hints of caramel flavor make Columbia blend a perfect pair for zuchinni breads or carrot cake.

Coasta Rican – This full bodied coffee makes a great partner for lightly flavored baked goods, so try this with a fruity muffin instead of sugary Kringle.

Guatemalan– This richly flavored, heavy bodied brew can stand up to a chocolate Kringle or even a caramel apple.

Kona- An aromatic cup of Kona coffee goes well with oatmeal, but tastes even better along side oatmeal cookies or O&H Bakery’s famous Seven Sister’s Coffee Cake.
