Coffee & Cheese High in the Alps

With the cowbells hanging in the eaves of the huts, I could tell the cows were up high in the mountains. The other, more obvious clue was the cows themselves blocking the trail. Either way, lucky for me this meant fresh alpine cheese!

On a recent hike from Mürren, Switzerland, I stopped at a little hut to enjoy the view and check out the tasty signature cheese. 6,384 feet up, I had great coffee (Starbucks VIA® Ready Brew Italian Roast) paired with alpine cheese in a truly unforgettable setting.

The sky was clear, the mountain air was clean and crisp, the cowbells were ringing in the distance, and the aromas of grass, earth and (somewhat unfortunately) cows were wafting through the air. Just as memorable as the setting: the bold flavor and sweetness of Italian Roast colliding with the sharp but balanced and nutty cheese to create pure perfection.

While my favorite food-and-coffee pairing – Double Chocolate Brownie and Caffè Verona® – is still totally amazing, this experience will be hard to top, literally.
