Kick Off 4th of July Celebrations with Don Francisco's Coffee

June 25th, 2020

Happy 4th of July from Don Francisco's Coffee

Fourth of July – it’s the peak summer holiday that so many look forward to! From fireworks to beach bonfires and hot dogs on the grill, July 4th is the quintessential summer holiday celebrating all things America!

This year, Independence Day celebrations will look a little different but that doesn’t mean you have to skip on the fun and relaxing activities entirely. Whether you had plans to go to a firework show or you loved heading out to celebrate 4th of July, this year the festivities will be closer to home and just as fun – we promise!   

Coffee in American History

Did you know that drinking coffee in America dates all the way back to the Revolutionary War era in our country’s history? In fact, most colonists drank tea two to three times each day – until they got fed up with the taxation from England and decided to make a stand with the Boston Tea Party. This famous demonstration led by the Sons of Liberty took tea from docked ships and dumped it straight into the Boston Harbor to protest the tax on tea.

Colonists who wanted to show support for the Sons of Liberty did what they could at home – instead of drinking tea they switched to another beverage, coffee! Today coffee is still the most popular choice over tea and it can all be traced back to the early days in American history.

Celebrate the fourth with coffee!

How do you bring the mid-summer fun home? Here are some fun ways to keep spirits up as you commemorate America’s birthday!

A delicious assortment of summer foods are always a hit on 4th of July and this year is no exception! Break out the grill and fire it up for all of your favorites – whether you prefer good old fashioned hot dogs and hamburgers or you look to Independence Day as the perfect opportunity to grill up a steak, anything goes when it comes to summer grilling. Want a delicious rub recipe for your protein? Visit our recipe guides to snag a coffee BBQ rub recipe you won't want to miss.

When the temperatures outside start to peak, there’s nothing better than a refreshing glass of cold coffee. Since vacation time is probably on hold, bring the tropics home instead! Using Don Francisco’s Coffee, brew up a pitcher (or two!) of Organic Cold Brew and use it as a base for this yummy Coconut Cold Brew recipe – the entire family will love it.

Ice cream is a must-have for any 4th of July celebration, so use some of that cold brew to create homemade popsicles! Combine your desired amount of heavy cream and favorite syrup flavor with the cold brew, then pour into a popsicle mold and freeze until they’re solid. This is one refreshing treat you’ll want to enjoy all summer long!

No matter what’s on your 4th of July itinerary, kick the day off on the right foot with a perfect patriotic breakfast spread. Need some easy but flavorful ideas? 

  • Patriotic Parfait – Layer yogurt with fresh layers of strawberries and blueberries, then top with granola for a light breakfast or afternoon snack.
  • Cheesecake Bites – Cut strawberries down the middle, then pipe pre-made cheesecake filling over the cut half and top with fresh blueberries. Everyone will love these bite-sized treats!
  • Patriotic Parfait – Layer yogurt with fresh layers of strawberries and blueberries, then top with granola for a light breakfast or afternoon snack.
  • Each of these yummy breakfast ideas pair exceptionally well with any flavor of Don Francisco’s Coffee – especially if you want to use Double French Single Serve as a way to complement the sweeter ingredients. If flavored coffee is more your preference, Hawaiian Hazelnut offers all that nutty goodness you want while pairing with afternoon treats (or just enjoy a chilled glass of coffee as a refreshment).
