Perfect Coffee Day at the Fair

SimplyKansasBannerFairSaturday found us at the Kansas Department of Commerce’s Simply Kansas Showcase at the Kansas State Fair.

What a great day to do a sampling at the fair!  The weather was cool and dry and chilly enough to make a warm cup of coffee sound really good!

We met a lot of great Kansans and introduced many to Blacksmith Coffee for the first time.  It was fun because the Simply Kansas Showcase is in the Bluestem Building along with the Kansas Wineries display and Microbrewed beer.

Matching Blacksmith Coffee with Beer


Speaking of beer and wine, beer and coffee pairings have intrigued me for awhile.  We just haven’t had time to experiment with them too much yet.  However, I did find one ideal Kansas beer/coffee pairing:  Free State Brewing Company’s Ad Astra Ale paired with Blacksmith Coffee Roastery’s Guatemala Antigua.

If you have a favorite Blacksmith Coffee beer pairing let us know.  We’ll probably take a more organized approach to this experiment in the future.
