Festive Pairings

The Grind is developing and taste testing many coffee and food pairings. Eventually this will be offered as a gourmet tasting event at our new shop—but right now we are in the research phase.

There’s no reason you can’t experiment this holiday with  your own pairings. Here are a couple we enjoy. Baked ham with a cardamom/nutmeg/coffee fines rub with a full-bodied bean from El Salvador or Nicaragua.  Or a sheep’s milk blue cheese with drizzled honey paired with a classic espresso or dark roasted bean.
