Summer Grilling with Door County Coffee

Memorial Day weekend is known as the kickoff to Summer, and now that it’s here, before we buy the burgers and get the grill out, we need to take time to remember the fallen and those who have, and those who continue to serve. As we sip on our Heroes Blend, a perfect blend of Colombian & Costa Rican beans, roasted with pride in honor of our nation’s bravest heroes, we take the time to honor all those brave men and women. Door County Coffee donates 10% of the purchase price of every bag of Heroes Blend to Operation Not Alone and we are so proud to be a part of such a meaningful organization. With that said, we also know Memorial Day signals the start of – GRILLING SEASON! We have so many fun ways to incorporate coffee into your grilling rubs and sauces, along with some great side dishes and desserts! Enjoy some of our favorite ways to include Door County Coffee in summer cooking! Read More Here...
