Finishing Touches

Take the time to be thankful this holiday season. Don’t get so caught up in planning that you forget to enjoy your holiday. You’re supposed to be celebrating with friends and family, so keep it simple.

  • Calculate the time of your guests’ arrival so your food is done and you can enjoy the party. The last thing you want to be is running around stirring pots and heating up rolls when you could and should be welcoming guests and catching up.
  • Choose appetizers that are easy to restock and to eat. You want people to mix and mingle, and overly complicated and drippy foods can hinder conversations.MyFirstCup_GS_83857_lrg
  • Add a touch of elegance. How about a table-side coffee preparation in a French Press? The French Press is a more elegant way to brew your coffee. It relies on the “steeping method,” in which the coffee grounds are completely infused with hot water, extracting the flavor. You simply add hot water, let it steep and press down the plunger. This method results in a heavier-bodied coffee. Also, consider sippable holiday treats like the new Community Bread Pudding , or traditional seasonal favorites like Community Bananas Foster and Pecan Praline flavored coffees.
  • Think about a fun remembrance. It could be as simple as custom wrapping cookies or snapping instant Polaroid photos for guests to take with them. You want to not only enjoy your party but be able to have a memento to remember it.

Overall simplify and keep it fun.infinity

Brew Up Your Own Holiday Cheer

Tart DessertsCoffee and dessert pairings are very similar to choosing the right wine for a meal. Coffee grown in various parts of the world and roasted at different levels will produce subtly different flavors. These flavors are the perfect accent for various types of desserts – whether they’re tart, fruited, creamy, chocolate or spiced. The trick is to use coffee made with the highest quality Arabica beans and one that supports the flavor notes in the dessert.

Here are a few desserts that are commonly served in homes and restaurants, along with each dessert’s complementary coffee:

  • Pecan pie (caramel flavor) – Café Special®, Breakfast Blend (smooth and mellow)
  • Cheesecake (creamy dessert) – Café Special® (fragrant and slightly nutty)
  • Fruit pie (tangy) – Medium Roast (fruity flavor)
  • Chocolate cake (strong and rich) – Dark Roast, Breakfast Blend. You’ll need a dark roast to stand up to the flavor!

RichCakesA general rule of thumb: the richer the dessert (i.e. chocolate, praline or peanut butter flavoring), the darker the roast.

Another option is to make the coffee the dessert.
Who would have thought to combine the rich Southern dessert of bread pudding with the best tasting coffee? We did. We’ve highlighted the flavors of the season with our new Bread Pudding variety. No heavy syrups, just the coffee customer’s love roasted with the right touch of caramel and brown sugar flavoring.
