January Sandwich at Zingerman’s Deli

The Deli Sandwich of the Month is the Bowker Brothers Bean Trilogy! This month we wanted to feature the delightfully crisp, pickled green beans from Rick’s Picks, which pack a spicy cayenne punch. They’re well seasoned with a hint of dill, which we instantly realized would be a great companion with our chicken salad. Then we spread American Spoon’s whole seed mustard – which also provides a little heat and a lot of texture  – on toasted Rustic Italian bread. All together they make a snappy, bright & comforting combination.


guatemalan-cobanJanuary Roaster’s Pick at Zingerman’s Coffee Company

Our selection this month is Guatemalan Coban. In 1988 in Guatemala, Horst Spitzke started planting coffee at his beautiful farm, Flor del Rosario. His large farm of 550 hectares (1,400 acres) celebrates the biodiversity of the region. It is a natural wonder of flora and fauna where he also raises orchids, cardamoms and Monja Blanca, Guatemala’s national flower. Our coffee, La Cascada (“The Waterfall”) is named for the 100-meter natural spring waterfall located on the farm. The tropical rain forest environment seems to produce a coffee with citrus brightness that is striking for the region. This coffee is superbly well balanced with a nice sweetness. It has light floral blossom aromas, cocoa and citrus flavors and a lovely finish. It is a staff favorite brewed in a Chemex or an Aeropress and the syphon pot really brings out the fruit and soft herbal notes.

January Cake at Zingerman’s Bakehouse

This month’s cake is Raspberry White Chocolate Chiffon. Layers of fluffy yellow chiffon cake, filled with our own vanilla bean pastry cream and raspberry preserves, covered in vanilla butter cream and white chocolate shavings. A perfect winter cake and with all white chocolate chiffon cakes and slices 20% off this month, it’s the perfect time to try it!
