  • Zack Bruell Announces “Zack’s Brews” Custom Coffee Line

    In partnership with Caruso’s Coffee, Bruell introduces six unique, mouth-watering blends, available exclusively at Heinen’s

    Cleveland - Zack Bruell, chef and restaurateur of five Cleveland restaurants – Parallax, Table 45, Chinato, L’Albatros and Cowell & Hubbard – introduces Zack’s Brews, a line of signature Zack Bruell coffees available at area Heinen’s stores.

    The six blends – one for each restaurant, plus Bruell’s signature “Hot Lips” flavor – are custom-roasted and packaged locally by Caruso’s Coffee in Brecksville, Ohio, ensuring maximum freshness and flavor.

    The coffees are now on the shelves of all Heinen’s stores in Northeast Ohio. Each 12-ounce bag of ground Zack’s Brews coffee is available for $8.99 plus tax. The custom-designed packaging includes the blend description, as well as suggested pairings.

    “We approached the creation of and pairings for Zack’s Brews just as we do a fine wine,” said Bruell. “We’re taking bold flavors, like dark chocolate, citrus, floral, berry and smoke – and creating coffees to complement anything on your table – from cheese to dessert – and even chicken. This is not your mother’s coffee.”

    Parallax Blend: This is a blend of Sumatra Viennese and Costa Rican Tarrazu. The Sumatra Viennese has a subtle smokiness reminiscent of dark chocolate and the Costa Rican Tarrazu balances that with citrus flavors, floral and berry aromas.

    Table 45 Blend: This blend has an international flair utilizing beans from each of the world’s major coffee growing regions. French Roast and Sumatra Viennese give hints of chocolate. Beans from Nicaragua and Tanzania provide balance with a fresh hint of citrus in the finish.

    L’Albatros Blend:  This is a blend of two different dark roasts. It is smoky and rich with dark chocolate notes, caramelized sugars and a deep lingering finish.

    Chinato Blend: This is a classic European style blend and the heaviest of Zack’s six coffees. It is bold and full bodied with a rich deep finish and a lot of smokiness. This blend is perfect for a full bodied drip coffee or used to brew espresso.

    Cowell & Hubbard Blend: This is a blend of Brazilian coffee with a dark, Italian roast and Monsoon Malabar. The Brazilian coffee imparts a smoky flavor and dark berry fruit notes. The naturally low acid Monsoon Malabar beans from India provide a smooth sweet finish.

    Hot Lips Flavored Coffee: Venezuelan Dark Chocolate combined with intense French Black Cherry flavor. The chocolate is sweet and nutty while the cherry is bright and aromatic. These flavors are enhanced by a lingering heat that intensifies the sensory experience.

    The five restaurant-inspired Zack’s Brews are also poured at their namesake restaurant.  Stop in to taste a cup– or pick up all six varieties at Heinen’s today!
