ORRVILLE, OH (Sept. 19, 2017) – The fall beverages that coffee enthusiasts long for year-round have officially made their way back onto menus. It may come as a surprise that many of these seasonal favorites do not contain the ingredients their names imply. Enter Folgers® Simply Gourmet™ Coffee a new line that maintains the perfect balance of 100 percent Arabica coffee and real, natural flavors.
Folgers Simply Gourmet coffee gives coffee lovers the opportunity to enjoy delicious, natural flavored coffee, and to recreate their favorite fall coffee recipes with no artificial flavors. One hundred percent premium Arabica beans are perfectly paired and balanced with natural flavors to create the following flavored coffees - Natural Vanilla, Natural Cinnamon, Natural Chocolate, Natural Caramel, Natural Chocolate Raspberry and Natural Mint.
To help showcase the flavors of the six, new Folgers Simply Gourmet flavored coffees, the brand enlisted esteemed Celebrity Chef and Food Network Personality, Alex Guarnaschelli, to serve as the Folgers Simply Gourmet Real Barista. Guarnaschelli will use each flavor to purposefully recraft popular coffee drinks and inspire new recipes using flavors that taste delicious.
From Cinnamon Pumpkin Pie Spice Lattes and Caramel Horchatas to Chocolate Raspberry Coffee Parfaits and Vanilla Coffee Sweet Potato Puree, Guarnaschelli’s Folgers Simply Gourmet coffee-inspired recipes could woo any coffee-obsessed heart or foodie’s soul, available on Folgers.com.
“To earn a favorable rating from me as a judge, you must understand balance and be thoughtful when it comes to choosing and pairing recipe ingredients,” says Guarnaschelli. “Folgers Simply Gourmet coffee made the conceptualization and development of these fall recipes easy for me, given how the brand prioritized natural flavors above all else. Coffee has never been trendier than it is right now, so I think it’s important that Folgers has taken the initiative to create and provide coffee drinkers with six natural flavored coffees that have a decadent taste and aroma.”
Every Fall there is a flurry of flavored coffee activity, and Folgers wanted to provide a natural flavored coffee option to satisfy consumers’ taste preferences without the use of artificial ingredients. Coffee drinkers have the opportunity to experience their favorite fall coffees in a more authentic, and balanced way with the new Folgers Simply Gourmet coffee.
