My two favorite beverages have something in common: they’re better with vanilla. Coffee and craft beer can both benefit from a bit of the rich, floral sweetness provided by the addition of vanilla beans. Death Wish Vanilla Coffee Cups (Save 10% sitewide with code DWCAFF10) are a delicious and convenient way to enjoy the indulgent flavor of vanilla in your morning coffee. You can also find many craft beer options to bookend your day with vanilla. I love starting out my day with a Vanilla Death Cup and ending it with a malty stout with hints of vanilla in the evening.
Vanilla is a versatile flavor that can be used in a wide variety of culinary applications, from sweet to savory. In Death Wish Vanilla Coffee Cups, the vanilla provides a subtle sweetness that is balanced by the bold and robust flavor of Death Wish Coffee. Similarly, in craft beer made with vanilla, the vanilla serves to enhance the malt and hop flavors of the beer, creating a unique and complex flavor profile.
Death Wish Vanilla Coffee Cups are compatible with my Keurig, and many other coffee machines. Within minutes of waking up in the morning, my kitchen smells like roasted coffee beans and fragrant vanilla, and I’m sipping on a balanced, rich medium-roast vanilla coffee made with no artificial ingredients. A blend of arabica and robusta beans pairs perfectly with vanilla for a bold, smooth taste and a subtly sweet finish. As you take your first sip, the robust flavor of Death Wish Coffee comes through, with a smooth and creamy texture that is perfectly complemented by the floral sweetness of the vanilla. As you continue to sip you may notice subtle hints of caramel and chocolate, which add depth and complexity to the flavor profile of the coffee. These notes of caramel and chocolate are especially pronounced in the finish, lingering on the palate long after the last sip has been taken.
If I still need more of a pick-me-up I’ll pour a Vanilla Death Cup over ice with some cream and sugar on my way out the door for the day. A Vanilla Death Cup or two in the morning gets my day started just right. At the end of the day, when it’s time to relax the blend of roasted malts of a dark stout is the perfect way to settle in, and the addition of balanced by the subtle sweetness of vanilla brings my favorite craft beers to the next level. Another similarity between coffee and craft beer is the level of craftsmanship required to create them well. Both beverages require a careful selection of high-quality ingredients and a skilled hand to produce a high-quality final product. Death Wish Vanilla Coffee Cups and beer from my favorite craft breweries share an expert level of artisanship. Whether you are brewing a batch of vanilla beer in a craft brewery or brewing a cup of Death Wish Vanilla Coffee in your home kitchen, attention to detail and a passion for the craft are essential to creating a delicious and satisfying beverage. Both require a high level of craftsmanship to create and utilize vanilla as a key flavor component.
