How to Bring How You Brewin to Your Thanksgiving Table: A Feast of Flavor
Thanksgiving is a time to gather, give thanks, and indulge in the rich and comforting flavors of the season. It's also the perfect occasion to extend the warm, inviting atmosphere of our coffeehouse, How You Brewin, to your holiday table. This year, we're excited to show you how to incorporate our signature and seasonal flavored coffee beans into your Thanksgiving celebrations, subtly infusing the coffeehouse charm into every cup and dish.
Setting the Scene
Thanksgiving is about creating an inviting and cozy atmosphere. Begin by adorning your table with earthy, autumnal decor. Think warm-toned tablecloths, rustic centerpieces, and perhaps a scattering of fallen leaves. The idea is to bring the outdoors inside, symbolizing the bountiful harvest season.
To welcome your guests, you can never go wrong with creating a "coffee corner." Place a tray with your favorite coffee mugs and whatever coffee making method you have (Keurigs included too) on a side table. Ensure that your coffee beans are prominently displayed for guests to see and let the rich aroma of freshly ground coffee fill the room.
Of course, the star of your coffee corner will be the coffee itself. Our Apple Cider Donut flavored coffee is an autumn classic. Infused with the essence of apple cider and a hint of cinnamon, it's like taking a sip of this seasonal dessert. On the other hand, our Gingerbread flavored coffee evokes memories of freshly baked gingerbread cookies. It's a heartwarming blend that combines the spice of ginger with a touch of molasses sweetness.
For Your Thanksgiving Table: Consider serving both these delightful flavors in an elegant coffee carafe. The Apple Cider Donut coffee can be the perfect welcome drink, reminiscent of the season's apple harvest. After the meal, offer Gingerbread coffee to accompany dessert or as a cozy, post-feast drink.
To brew the perfect pot, grind your coffee beans just before brewing (if possible). The aroma of freshly ground beans will build anticipation for the feast ahead.
Appetizers & Coffee
Now, let's talk about appetizers. A Thanksgiving spread typically starts with a light course to tease the palate. In keeping with the theme, start with a roasted butternut squash soup with a swirl of cream for an elegant beginning.
For Your Thanksgiving Table: Serve this delightful soup in small espresso cups, offering a taste of comforting warmth with an aesthetic that lets your guests know just how passionate you are about your coffee.
When it comes to the main course, Thanksgiving is synonymous with turkey. Whether roasted, fried, or smoked, the turkey is the crown jewel of the feast. For a twist, consider a turkey rub featuring a hint of gingerbread spice.
For Your Thanksgiving Table: Incorporate this gingerbread rub as part of your turkey preparation. The warmth of the spices, combined with the coffee notes, will create a rich, aromatic crust on the turkey. It's a subtle nod to our Gingerbread flavored coffee and adds an extra layer of complexity to your Thanksgiving meal.
Sides & Coffee
Sides are the unsung heroes of a Thanksgiving feast. Dishes like sweet potato casserole, stuffing, and cranberry sauce are staples of the holiday.
For Your Thanksgiving Table: We think these sides are perfect the way they are, so dig in and enjoy!
Dessert & Coffee
Dessert is where the subtle infusion of our coffeehouse charm truly shines. Instead of the usual pumpkin pie, why not try a twist on a classic like a Coffee Tiramisu?
For Your Thanksgiving Table: Create a Gingerbread Coffee Tiramisu. Soak your ladyfingers in a mixture of brewed Gingerbread coffee and a touch of brandy or rum. The coffee's warm, comforting flavors pair beautifully with the mascarpone cheese and cocoa. Your guests will be treated to a dessert that's like a hug in a dish, reminiscent of the best moments spent in our coffeehouse.
Thanksgiving is a time for reflection, gratitude, and connection. It's about creating an atmosphere of warmth and sharing in the joys of good company and delicious food. By subtly incorporating the flavors of our Apple Cider Donut and Gingerbread coffee beans into your Thanksgiving feast, you're not just bringing How You Brewin to your table; you're inviting the essence of our coffeehouse into your cherished moments.
And remember, when you order three bags of our 12 oz coffee beans, you qualify for free shipping on orders over $50. So, why not make your Thanksgiving table even more special by sharing the love of How You Brewin with friends and family?
As you gather with loved ones and savor the rich, comforting flavors of your Thanksgiving meal, remember that the coffee has played its part in creating this special atmosphere. It's a reminder of the joy of shared moments, the art of slow sipping, and the power of coffee to enhance the beauty of life's simplest pleasures.
Cheers to a season of warmth, family, and coffeehouse-inspired delights.
