Niles, IL: Mrs Prindables and Kribi Coffee Air Roastery announced in the last week that they teamed up to create a line of specially-designed whole bean coffees to pair with Mrs Prindables Gourmet Caramel Apples and Confections. The collaboration features Ethiopian and Colombian coffee beans, freshly air roasted in small batches at Kribi Coffee’s Chicago-area facility. Unlike traditional roasting methods, Kribi’s innovative bean roasting technique of “air roasting” prevents the coffee beans from becoming too bitter, producing a delicious, balanced brew.

Specializing in chocolate covered Gourmet Caramel Apples, the toasted sugar notes of our signature caramel, richness of our chocolate, and crisp Granny Smith apples beautifully complement the deep roasted flavor of the coffee. The Ethiopian and Colombian coffee beans as well as roast levels were carefully selected to accompany Mrs Prindables chocolate and caramel treats, specifically, our Triple Chocolate Jumbo Caramel Apples.
“A cup of fresh-brewed coffee paired with our Caramel Apples and Confections is a delicious combination our team has enjoyed for years. We wanted to share this pairing with our customers, and it became clear that we should craft our own coffee beans. We found the perfect partner in Kribi, who like Mrs Prindables, also makes it their priority to use only the finest ingredients and produce the freshest products,” says Brandon Beavers, Chief Executive Officer of Mrs Prindables.
“From the minute we began discussing a collaboration with Mrs Prindables, it was apparent to me that we had a winner. Pairing our coffee with a popular item like a Caramel Apple fits well with our vision for creating unique and exciting customer experiences for our coffee fans,” says Jacques Shalo, Founder of Kribi Coffee Air Roastery.
Beavers continues to say, “A cornerstone of the Mrs Prindables culture is supporting like-minded businesses and growers who take care to ensure that every item they put on the market is of the highest quality. We admire Kribi’s burgeoning business and model of sourcing coffee beans directly from the best growers around the world. We look forward to future collaborations in additional verticals, such as, spirits, snacks, and other beverages.”
The coffee line is comprised of individual 12 oz. bags of Ethiopian and Colombian whole bean coffee, a set of both coffee varieties, as well as a bag of each coffee variety with a Mrs Prindables Triple Chocolate Jumbo Caramel Apple.
