Kickapoo Coffee

Kickapoo Coffee was founded in 2005 on two simple commitments: commitment to land and commitment to farmers. Every coffee they source is a unique expression of the land where it was grown. By supporting traditional farming and sustainable agriculture, they safeguard the future of the coffees they love and the farmers who produce them. Their farmer partnerships are founded on direct relationships with small-scale growers and cooperatives. Kickapoo Coffee pays a fair price that makes their difficult work sustainable and worthwhile.

Cook boldly. Start locally.

Visit our Deli this month for Chef Leah Caplan's Summer Solstice Ribs!

Here at Metcalfe's, whether we're bringing people or flavors together, we start with local ingredients like Kickapoo Coffee.

Cook boldly at home with these three recipes from Chef Leah Caplan:

Summer Solstice Coffee Rub for Steak or Ribs
(adapted from -- thanks, Scott!)

  • 4-8 whole dried chili peppers: any combination of passilla, guajillo, ancho, arbol (stems removed)
  • 1/2 cup Kickapoo Summer Solstice coffee beans
  • 2T sweet or hot Hungarian paprika
  • 2T brown sugar
  • 1T dry mustard powder
  • 1T black peppercorns
  • 1T whole coriander
  • 1T fresh oregano leaves
  • 1t whole cumin
  • 4T coarse sea salt
  • Grass Fed beef steaks or heritage pork ribs

For best flavor, start with whole spices and grind together in a coffee mill/grinder. (To rid the machine of the spice flavors when you are done, grind some white rice and discard the rice, not the mill). Working in batches according to the size of your grinder, grind all ingredients to a powder. Then stir in 4T coarse sea salt. Thickly coat both sides of grass fed beef steaks or heritage pork ribs with the rub, then place on a metal rack over a pan. Refrigerate overnight, uncovered. Grill, pan sear or roast as you desire. This is enough rub for a couple pounds or 4-8 servings.

Tiramisu Ice Cream Sundae
Toss chunks of biscotti in strong brewed coffee or espresso (just so they soak up some). Spoon over a scoop of ice cream (nothing wrong with Sassy Cow Salted Caramel), and enjoy. To take it to the next level drizzle with chocolate sauce, and top with fresh whipped cream (or whipped mascarpone) and toasted hazelnuts.

Vietnamese Iced Coffee
Sweet, Creamy, Refreshing & Eye Opening

  • 2T sweetened condensed milk
  • 4T medium-fine coffee grounds
  • 6 oz. boiling water
  • several ice cubes
Pour sweetened condensed milk into a tall, ice-filled glass. Place the pour-over filter on top of the glass, add grounds and VERY slowly pour the boiling water over the grounds (if using a French press, infuse for 4 minutes then press and pour over ice. Or you can use really, really strong brewed coffee). After coffee has brewed, remove the brewer and stir the coffee drink. To make it a Wisconsin-French-Vietnamese-Soda-Cocktail add some club soda and a couple ounces of brandy (sweet, creamy, refreshing and equal parts eye opening and closing). Serves 1.

Enhance the chocolate flavor in your next batch of brownies by adding 1T of very finely ground Summer Solstice.
