Dare To Pair - Cherry Cheesecake & Kona Coffee


Today is National Cherry Cheesecake Day, and what better pairing could there be than our newly released, premium Kona Blend OneCup Coffee.

Nothing, that's what.


Supposedly, cheesecake can be dated back to an ancient Greek cookbook where two recipes were identified for religious uses.

That's some old cake. 

Modern day cheesecake, your creamy, cookie crusted fav, is an American invention and that all important cream cheese ingredient is a the result of a happy accident by, William Lawrence, from Chester, New York.

In 1872, while looking for a way to recreate the soft, French cheese Neufchâtel, he accidentally came up with a way of making an "unripened cheese" that is heavier and creamier. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cheesecake)

Thanks to some clever folks, happy accidents and sweet toothed chefs, we now have wonderful desserts like, Cherry Cheesecake. (recipe)

It can be argued that the subtleties of an epic dessert can be pronounced with a perfectly paired beverage.


Kona coffee, one of the most coveted coffee varieties on the planet, is only grown on the slopes of Hualalai and Mauna Loa in the North and South Kona Districts on the Big Island of Hawaii. The volcanic soil and ideal weather create the perfect conditions for this special coffee to thrive. Brewing our Kona Coffee will fill your home with the aromas of almonds and macadamia, and the long caramel finish will remind you why Kona Coffee is so exceptional.
