Bakery and Java Jim’s Pairings.

If you’re hosting a brunch for your unsung hero aka Mom or inviting family and friends to your Communion or Graduation Parties, here are a few simple principles for pairing from our Bakery and Java Jim’s Experts:

  • Fruit Tarts pair well with subtle flavors of a cabernet wine, citrus flavors and acidity of grapefruit with a soft rose petal finish.
    – try Tanzanian Peaberry
  • Our Blueberry Muffins go very well with a sweet, snappy, robust blend with mild body and a smooth finish.
    – try Breakfast Blend
  • Top our Angel Food Cake with fresh berries from our produce department and accompany with one of our Flavored Coffees of the Day.
    – try Very Vanilla
  • Our Brioche Bread – great for French Toast – is ideally suited to be accompanied by notes of rich chocolate, honeydew and a hint of toasted coconut with a distinctive mellow sweet finish.
    – try Jamaican Blue Mountain
  • Our Pound Cakes may be complemented by our MajaTei Premium Loose Leaf Flavored Teas.
    – try Plum Ginger Green Tea
  • Our Mini Brownies are a brilliant combination with flavors of tropical nuts, dark chocolate and citrus fruits.
    – try LaMinita Costa Rican El Indio
You can buy any of the above coffee selections as whole beans and give as a gift or serve at your next gathering. We would be more than happy to grind it for you. Just ask! Talk to our Baristas and Bakery Associates at all of our locations for more great pairing ideas!
