SOUND THE ALARM! IT’S FIRE DEPT. COFFEE!

FROM THE WIRES…
ROCKFORD, Illinois — You don’t have to be Irish to celebrate St. Paddy’s Day. That’s no
secret. It’s also no secret that a lot of St. Paddy’s Day celebrations are centered around alcohol — from green beer to dark Irish stouts and a full range of concoctions made with Irish spirits. Fire Dept. Coffee now has a great option for anyone who wants a non-alcoholic alternative while still enjoying the festivities in true Irish style.
The veteran-owned and firefighter-run company’s Irish Whiskey Infused Coffee is the headlining ingredient in its popular recipe for non-alcoholic Irish Coffee.
“We look forward to St. Patrick’s Day every year,” Fire Dept. Coffee founder Luke Schneider
said. “For anyone who loves the taste of Irish coffee, this recipe lets you enjoy it all day long.
Once people try it, they’re actually going to enjoy it all year long.”
The recipe calls for just three ingredients: Irish Whiskey Infused Coffee, brown sugar and lightly whipped cream. It couldn’t be easier.
Irish Whiskey Infused Coffee is one of the most popular selections in Fire Dept. Coffee’s line of signature Spirit-Infused Coffee roasts. Each one features a rich, bold coffee accented by the distinct flavors of fine spirits. The company uses a signature infusion process to create the ideal blend of tasting notes, even as the alcohol content of the spirits is removed during the roasting process.
