Celebrate National Dog Day Over A Fresh Cup of Coffee

Spend your lazy Saturday morning celebrating your little (or big) pup with a quick session of tug-o-war or belly rubs over a fresh brew of Grounds & Hounds coffee.

Grounds & Hounds Coffee Co. is a fair trade and organic coffee company that donates 20% of purchases towards local dog recuses. The company looks at the zip code of purchased items and donates the proceeds to the closest charity partner so you can see an impact within your own community.

If you buy online save 15% by using the code DogDay2017.

Take a look at some at-home coffee recipe below so you can create while never having to leave your pup’s side!

 

Cafe de Olla
8 cups of distilled water
1/3 cup Brown Sugar (or 3 Piloncillo cones)
1 Cinnamon Stick
1 Clove
2 Whole Allspice Berry
3 Whole Black Peppercorns
4 Strips Orange Zest with no white pulp remaining
6-8 Tablespoons of Fresh Ground Single-Origin Mexican Chiapas (Or Grounds & Hounds coffee of your choice)

Directions
Pour 8 cups of water into a large saucepan (or olla), then add the brown sugar (or piloncillo), cinnamon stick, clove, all spice berries, black pepper, and orange zest to the water.

After adding all ingredients to the pan, bring the water to a boil.

While the water prepares to boil, coarsely grind 8 tablespoons of your favorite Grounds & Hounds coffee to prepare for the next step. (we recommend our Mexican Chiapas for this brew)

After the water begins to boil, the brown sugar has fully dissolved, and the mixture becomes fragrant, remove the saucepan from the heat, add the fresh ground coffee, and let the grounds steep for 8-10 minutes.

Let the coffee grounds settle on the bottom of the pan (about 7-10 minutes), and then begin to ladle the Café de Olla into individual cups (we suggest our Diner Mugs, but we may be biased).
