Berres Brothers Coffee Roasters Café achieved a milestone in 2007. In only 365 days, their staff roasted more than one million pounds of coffee beans, or the equivalent of roughly 10 million last-minute term papers. And they continue to rack up impressive numbers on a daily basis. They consistently roast more than 100 types of singe-origin, blends, and Fair Trade-certified beans from across the world, and for some batches, they add more than 40 specialty flavors, including mint, chocolate, and cinnamon.
Some of these freshly roasted beans travel to retailers throughout the midwest, though much of the coffee stays on-site to the delight of local patrons. At the cafe, baristas serve food and pour countless cups of Berres Brothers' most popular flavor, Highlander Grogg: an indulgent blend of caramel, butterscotch, and hazelnut. Additionally, their retail shop brims with the aromas of Berres Brothers' full selection, as well as coffee gear such as grinders and french presses.
More than 50 wines at Wine Maniacs on the River stand at attention to be served by the glass or bottle. The bistro updates its food menu quarterly with dishes that celebrate the seasons and complement its complex varietals, using gourmet ingredients such as Wisconsin artisan cheeses. Small plates make creative use of such ingredients, with options that may include calamari spaghetti or duck-confit tacos ornamented, like a scarecrow's frankfurter, with corn relish.
Nice weather draws diners outdoors onto the patio overlooking the Milwaukee River, where they can sip while admiring the Water Street Bridge and views of the city from the 5th Ward. Guests can also stock up on their favorite elixirs at the establishment's retail shop, which sells wines by the case.
The Waldvogel family has been planting pumpkins without incident each fall for the past 25 years. This year, however, something peculiar happened. Their 10-acre pumpkin patch yielded pink pumpkins. Before you blame the supernatural or last spring's pink-lemonade spill, know that the Waldvogels grew the pumpkins to promote awareness of breast cancer and raise money for breast-cancer research.
Once you've taken the complimentary hayride out to the pumpkin patch and picked a pumpkin—pink or orange—there's still plenty to do around the farm. Youngsters can sample the 16 attractions, including a 6-acre corn maze, a train ride, and a miniature golf course. Older visitors can browse the market's squash and jams, the bakery's apple pies, and the apple kitchen's fixings for creating your own caramel apple.
