Suspended Coffee Movement

We've been watching the suspended coffee movement closely on Facebook and are inspired at the response prompting people to get more involved with the wellbeing of their local community.  Giving back to the community plays an integral role in our vales and practices. Each of our cafes has a monthly budget to supply donations ranging from whole bean coffee to be used to raise money for various causes to supplying brewed coffee supporting charitable events. Kaldi's is on track to raise over $1 million dollars for the MS Society Gateway Chapter this year since our MS150 bike team start. We field and fulfill many donation requests each week on varying levels and donation amounts. Frequently throughout the year we supply brewed coffees to various 5k...

FEAST TV: How to cook with coffee & Kaldi's Coffee

“Coffee is not a flavor,” says Frank McGinty in the latest issue of Feast Magazine. “That would be like saying something has wine flavor. Most people know that wine is complex. The same is true for coffee.”  Throughout the year Kaldi's hosts what we call "coffee dinners." Every component from the hors d'oeuvres to dessert has a coffee component. The latest one was held in our Columbia cafe and Feast Magazine wrote a great piece on cooking with coffee and filmed a behind-the-scenes video of the dinner in action.  Feast shared our recipe featuring our Sumatra Wahana Natural and many other great dishes here: http://www.feaststl.com/dine-in/features/article_ab05c9d2-97be-11e2-b083-001a4bcf6878.html. Frank had this to share with Feast about the dish: “The inspiration for this dish was the unique...
