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!
Rubs & Sauces: What is grilling season without a delicious steak? We have a few options for sauces and rubs, including a fan-favorite Jamaican Me Crazy Grilling Sauce which is perfect for chicken! Our Java Steak Rub is another great recipe to use on steaks or shrimp skewers!
Side Dishes: The Rugged Rancher BBQ Salad is a fun salad bursting with flavor, perfect as a side with your grilled burgers! We also have a great coffee-infused Baked Beans recipe, a true American classic, perfect for any cookout!
Dessert: What is more American than Cherry Pie? With our best-selling Cherry Pie Filling from Seaquist Orchards right here in Door County, Cherry Pie is a Door County and a cookout staple! Another fun recipe, perfect for a hot summer day is our Chocolate Caramel Truffle Coffee Gelato!
The last grilling staple that you have got to have to ensure the perfect cookout is a nice big glass of Door County Coffee Cold Brew Coffee! A summertime flavor favorite is our Coconut Cupcake – the perfect flavor for the season! You can also add a splash of your favorite rum to make it an adult cold brew, just make sure the kids don’t take it!
A final fun touch is festive dinnerware or serving dishes because Summer is all about fun, right?! Memorial Day is the perfect time to break out the stars and stripes! We got some fun trays and napkins from Target, and they make it nice and easy for everyone to grab exactly what they want! We love summer in Door County, and we love all the fun ways to use our coffee in our cooking, and we hope you do too! Cheers!
