What java jives best with your favorite Girl Scout Cookies? We’re glad you asked! In celebration of everyone’s favorite seasonal sweets, our coffee bar pros have put together four fantastic cookie and coffee pairings you’re sure to enjoy.
Thin Mints + Equator Blend: The Girl Scouts’ top-selling cookie hardly needs an introduction, but it could use a smooth cup of coffee! Pair the chocolate mint magic of these wonderful wafers with a mellow medium roast like Equator Blend, which features complementary accents of cedar, almond, berry and nutmeg.
Caramel deLites + French Roast Fair Trade Organic: Clocking in at #2 fan favorite, Caramel deLites feature vanilla cookies topped with caramel, toasted coconut and chocolaty stripes. Highlight the sweet, nutty flavors with the rich, earthy tones of this robust dark roast, reminiscent of smoky tropical wood.
S’mores + Peru Cajamarca Fair Trade Organic: This fireside classic is the newest addition to the Girl Scout lineup and features graham cookies with marshmallow crème icing and a chocolaty coating. Complete the experience with this medium-light roast coffee featuring flavors of cocoa powder, dried fig and honeydew melon.
Shortbread + Brazil Santa Luzia: As classic as classic can be, these sensational shortbread cookies bear the traditional Girl Scout trefoil shape. The simple richness and sweetness of these iconic cookies pair well with the flavors of milk chocolate, nuts and blueberry found in this seasonal, single-origin light roast.
