Nothing inspires an afternoon brunch like sunny skies during the Texas summer. The mimosas are a’plenty, and the coffee can’t come any quicker to get you perked up for the day. Our cold-brew is a tasty addition to any meal, but you might be surprised to discover that it’s also an excellent compliment to cheese!
Though the pair may seem unlikely, in many ways, they’re a natural fit. Dairy and coffee have an enduring friendship, and there are endless ways to mix the varieties of this duo. We crafted a pairing guide to help you match up the best mascarpone for your Mocha and the perfect brie for your black coffee. And because all this cheese talk is practically begging for a good pun, you feta brie-lieve we’d squeeze one in. 😉
Try a medium bodied cheese, such as Marieke Gouda, paired with a Black Coffee . This buttery and slightly nutty cheese brings out the brightness of the coffee and is sure to kick-start your day after a fun night out.
Serve up the ultimate crowd pleaser by pairing the Mt. Tamp Triple Cream alongside a Vanilla Coffee for a flavorful finish. This extra-creamy combo also makes a wonderful dessert.
Light and mild coffees respond well with fresh cheese- think fresh chevre and farmer’s cheeses for a more savory treat, and mascarpone or ricotta if you have more of a sweet tooth). Pair with Mocha Coffee for an irresistibly satisfying combo.
Foodies at heart should venture towards a blue cheese, gorgonzola or parmesan reggiano paired with Chicory Coffee. The bitters from this New-Orleans style coffee tames the more pungent cheese.
