Coffee Round Up

FEATURED ITEM: Coffee Round Up

From locally roasted New England Coffee and Wicked Joe to organic Full Circle and Gevalia from Sweden, the grocery aisles are filled with a wide array of coffee choices to suit your preference.

Wake up to a cup of Joe from New England Coffee, which has been roasting 100% Arabica beans locally for 100 years. Enjoy the flavor in Tim Hortons Premium Blend, created using 100% Arabica beans from the world’s most renowned coffee growing regions.

Brew the Fair Trade, organic coffee from Wicked Joe. A family-owned company in Topsham, Maine that focuses on sustainable practices from crop to cup, Wicked Joe’s certified organic roaster is state-of-the art and energy efficient. Try single blends such as Sumatra or Guatemala, or blends such as Wicked Italian or Jamaican Me Crazy.

Or take home single serve cups so you can enjoy Starbucks, Peet’s, Wide Awake or many other coffee varieties easily in the comfort of your own home.

If you like iced coffee, no matter how icy it is outside, check out our guide to making a great cup of iced coffee at home.

Make your caffeine-fix more exciting morning, noon or night with new ways to use ground coffee.

Shake in some cocoa powder or melt coconut oil and dark chocolate for a richer flavor and stir it in. Make it creamy by adding coconut milk, and sweeten it with a drizzle of maple syrup. Add earthy vanilla extract and a scoop of ice cream and serve it for dessert.

Or turn your Maxwell House or Folgers into a main course! From pork tenderloin to ribeye, meat gets a boost when ground coffee is the basis of a rub. Mix ground coffee with paprika, dried rosemary and basil, hot smoked Spanish paprika and crushed red pepper flakes in our Spiced-Up Coffee Rub.  Give your meat an Asian flair with ground coffee, sesame seeds and Chinese five-spice powder. Or pair a spicy rub with cayenne, cumin and coriander with a smooth and tangy romesco sauce in our recipe for Coffee-Rubbed Sirloin with Tomato Romesco.

Coffee also makes a rich addition to sauces. Add a half cup of Wide Awake Coffee to give deep flavor to a sweet-with-a-kick barbecue sauce to marinate meats or use for dipping.
