Pharisäer Kaffee

Pharisäer Kaffee

This German-based coffee is like Irish Coffee but instead of whiskey, it’s replaced with rum. Similarly sweet but with less of a bite than an Irish Coffee, the German take on this drink is just as delicious, decadent, and creamy as the Irish version.

Ingredients

  • 4 oz strong coffee We recommended Barbed Wire 
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 ½ oz dark rum
  • 2 tablespoons whipped cream

Recipe

  • Combine coffee and rum
  • Top with whipped cream
  • Traditionally, you don’t mix the cream with the drink!

Irish Cream

Irish Cream

Another classic coffee-based mixed drink, the Irish coffee is a staple of St. Patrick’s Day menus all over. However, there have been similar coffee-liquor drinks throughout Europe that pre-date the Irish coffee by at least 100 years. Disregarding that, Irish Coffee is a simple, sweet, and delicious mixed drink even when it isn’t St. Patty’s Day.

Ingredients

  • 6 oz brewed Irish Elegance coffee
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 ½ oz Jameson or similar Irish whiskey
  • Sweetened whipped cream or make your own with 2 cans of evaporated milk & 1 can of sweetened condensed milk.

Recipe

  • Brew coffee using your favorite brew method
  • Add coffee to the glass, leaving about an inch for whipped cream, added sugar and whiskey stirring until sugar is dissolved
  • Add the whipped cream to the drink

Stories Over Morning Coffee

Stories Over Morning Coffee

When daddy went to heaven this year, on February 20, my husband sent me this beautiful coffee shrub. It is so special to me because of what it represents.

My daddy & I always shared our love of coffee and who had ‘the best cup’. I used to laugh at him and give him trouble, because when I was a flight attendant and he and momma would ‘winter’ in Hawaii, I would visit them often…. Every morning, I would head to Starbucks and daddy would get his coffee at McDonald’s and join me outside at Starbucks. When I wasn’t there to join him, he would do the same thing….. I said ‘you can’t buy your coffee at McDonalds and sit at Starbucks’! He said, ’Well, I guess I can, because, I do’ 😂🤣🤣. So many stories over our morning coffee ☕️ ❤️.

As many of you know, I started my own business 2 years ago, and I found my passion again, after living my dream of being a flight attendant. Daddy was so proud of me! (Which made it all the sweeter) Coffee!!!! I am roasting my own coffee ☕️. Every morning he would drink his favorite blend and say…. ‘That is THE best coffee, I have ever had’. I packaged that one in a gold bag…. Daddy called it ‘The Gold Standard’ and he loved yellow roses, so, the label reads ‘Daddy’s Gold Standard ‘ with a yellow rose.

Momma and I have since become passionate about our flowers 🌸 and plants that we were given for daddy’s funeral. A newfound passion that she & I share (who knew). She still drinks her hot tea, and tells me how good my coffee smells 😂. I’m so thankful for this time momma and I have had together and the sweet memories we have made. I’m so grateful for my husband and the sacrifices he makes to give me this precious time with her ❤️. God is so good! S

o, this morning, I lift my cup to you, daddy! Thank you for believing in me & sharing in the passion & excitement of roasting coffee to bring friends and families together and making special memories. I often think as I am roasting…. I wonder who will be drinking this coffee & making memories ❤️. Good morning friends! Hope you are enjoying your coffee with those you love! ☕️

Introducing the Champagne of Coffee

Introducing the Champagne of Coffee

What makes Jamaican Blue Mountain so special? Did you know that only 0.1% of the world’s coffee makes up Jamaican Blue Mountain?? It’s true! It is the champagne of the coffee beans! Each bean is checked for quality before being shipped to us. The growing conditions on the Blue Mountain farms also create a sought after, well-known, high quality coffee bean with the highest altitude and greater tree coverage. This tree coverage allows for the coffee beans to mature longer increasing the strength and pervasiveness of the rich flavors.

Our sun-dried Jamaican roast has many wonderful qualities, including a certain, appealing brightness to its taste. The coffee beans carry sweet, complex undertones of chocolate and fruit that are accompanied by a wonderful nuttiness and a lingering, pleasant aftertaste that will make you want to take another sip of your delicious coffee. The medium roast has a creamy, smooth texture with a lovely aroma and perfectly balanced body. It is the perfect pick-me-up at any time of the day!

I would suggest using a French Press or pour over, as both allow adequate steeping time to draw out the flavors, while not increasing the acidity. Remember to pay attention to grind size before brewing, since the wrong grind size can change your entire experience.

Quick French Press Tips:

1. Use coarse grinds.
2. Heat water until it’s just boiling.
3. 2 Tbsp. ground coffee to 8 oz. water ratio
4. Steep for 4 minutes.

Quick Pour-Over tips:

1. Use Medium- coarse grinds.
2. Heat water just until boiling.
3. Pour half of the water over the grounds in a circular motion, letting it sit for 30-45 seconds before pouring the other half.100% Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee! One of the most sought after coffees in the world!
