Summer Drink Special Menu

The summer heat is here, along with Misfit Coffee's Newest line-up of drink specials! 

SASSAFRAS BLAST - The Sassafras blast is the Highlight of our summer menu. Combining some of the most popular items on our menu, we crafted an iced coffee beverage that closely resembles a nostalgic root beer float, with that special Misfit twist of course. This drink is composed by using a touch of heavy whipping cream, our homemade horchata, nitro cold brew coffee, and topped with IBC rootbeer. the Sassafras Blast is Pure creamy caffeinated goodness!


ESPRESSO TINI - Short, and straight to the point the Espresso Tini Is our smaller summer refreshment. This drink is made by throwing some ice in a martini shaker, along with some half and half, espresso, and the flavor of your choice.

GRAHAM CRACKER - Ideal for a summer evening, rich and semi-sweet with hints of vanilla, and topped with crushed graham cracker)

NILLA MINT - light and refreshing with a touch of sweetness. Made with our Homemade Vanilla, and Peppermint extract, this is the perfect drink to keep you going through a hot summer day!)


SPRO-DA-POP - The Spro-Da-Pop has been on our standard menu all year long, but we wanted to re-highlight it, as it is a perfect cold espresso beverage on a hot day. As strange as it sounds, the Spro-Da-Pop is ultra refreshing and simple. Mexican Coca-Cola (made with cane sugar) topped with espresso.


RED WINE HOT CHOCOLATE - The red wine hot chocolate was inspired by an Izzy's Ice Cream flavor (Dark Chocolate Zin) and created with music and movies in the park in mind. Being that music and movies in the park is an evening event we wanted to offer something non-caffenated yet interesting and delicious. We think we hit those two categories perfectly with the combination of our dark chocolate sea salt from Indulgence Chocolatiers, with red wine infused steamed whole milk. This is the perfect night time beverage, and pairs great with caramel corn and a movie!

What is the Caffeine Crawl?

Caffeine Crawl was developed by The LAB to give enthusiasts of quality-driven coffee, tea, and chocolate a one-of-a-kind experience. Designed as an interactive, pub crawl style tour event, Caffeine Crawl gives individuals an opportunity to learn, share and experience what the passionate baristas, tea soms, coffee roasters, chocolatiers and other local, artisan producers in their communities bring to the table. 

These products are an intrinsic part of our daily lives - from our morning cups of coffee to the evening nightcap of tea or treat of artisan chocolate. Many of us have embraced the craft and passion behind the teams of people that help produce these products and make our communities a better place to live. Through Caffeine Crawl, fans like us are being given a chance to learn more about the quality, technique and process of the products, and get to know the artisans behind the products a little better. 

Caffeine Crawl will spread about metropolitan areas, fostering relationships between the public and local specialty shops and manufacturers.

Each Caffeine Crawl host city has anywhere from 10 to 30 locations selected for Crawl attendees to visit via their selected route. No two Crawls are the same - each one is built around the city's personality, culture, traffic structure and local event flow. Depending on the number of participating businesses, routes visit 5-6 locations on a scheduled layout program, pre-approved with participating shops to keep the fun (and caffeine!) flowing smoothly. At every stop on the tour, Crawlers engage in a presentation by the shop or a hands-on activity, and enjoy a free drink or chocolate sample provided by the shop and redeemable by attendees only. 

This innovative concept is building a community that reaches from one side of the bar to the other, and we want you to be a part of it! Visit our press page to check out the buzz that's been building around Caffeine Crawl, and see our FAQ page for more information. Cheers!

New Drink Specials Spring 2016

Now That Misfit Coffee's wheels are rolling again, we have some awesome new drinks to keep your tastebuds tingling!

Horchata Del Noche  
The Horchata Del Noche is the perfect balance of strong and smooth coffee flavors, with just the right flare of sweetness from our homemade horchata. This summer special is a combination of our nitro cold brew coffee, horchata, and a perfectly pulled shot of espresso. There is nothing better to start to a hot summer day, as it is served on the rocks.

Bourbon Brown Wood Latte

The Bourbon Brown Wood Latte is definitely a complex, yet delicious creation. To start, we soak American oak wood cubes in Wild Turkey Bourbon, blending the two flavor profiles, after we let that steep, we strain out the oak cubes putting them into a brown/raw sugar mix, along with orange peels and honey. The final touch is a few drops of the oak infused bourbon to add strong aromatics. This drink is a must try for anyone who is a fan of nature based flavors! - Try it hot or iced!

Turmeric Ginger Chai Tea Latte

Made using Rishi Tea Turmeric Ginger Chai concentrate, and paired with milk or other non-dairy alternative. The turmeric chai packs just the right kick of spice, and is a refreshing non-coffee beverage to enjoy hot or iced during the spring and summer months.

Malted Vanilla latte & Mocha

Like to keep it plain and simple? The malted vanilla latte or mocha is the perfect choice for you. The addition of malt gives the latte a bit more thickness and depth of flavor. Imagine an espresso coated malted milk ball, served through a trailer window.

We are looking to work with one, or possibly a few local, smaller bakeries.

We would love to hear back from the people who would hopefully be supporting this new addition to our menu.

  • What baked good providers would you like to see us maybe bring on board?

The Rum-Chata-Lata is made with our signature homemade horchata (mexican rice water) The addition of original spiced Captain Morgan brings the warmth and throat kick to this beverage.

Kiddie + Izzy Affogato

Our time inside of Izzy's Ice Cream gets shorter by the day, so what better way to take advantage of our awesome collaboration than an affogato. An affogato is a shot of espresso poured over ice cream. In our case, you get the choice of any 2 Izzy ice cream flavors and we will handle the espresso part of things.

Peanut Butter Cup Latte

Our Peanut Butter Cup Latte is pretty self explanatory, chocolate and peanut butter served in the form of a latte, with a mini peanut butter cup on the side!

Pour-Over Coffee Sampler (Serves 2)

Often times a group of people come in, wanting to try and compare different coffee's. We decided to not only make this more simple, but more fun too! Choose any 4 of our coffee offerings in a 6oz or 8oz size. Served on a beer flight board, we will provide a fun tasting note sheet to help you better understand what you are tasting, and how they are different.

Join us this Valentines Day For A Sweet Treat!

Valentines day is stupid, over-rated, and just a pointless holiday...right? We say no, not when your local specialty coffee shop is offering a great "date" experience for two! 

So this is a cheesy couples only deal...again, no! This is a great opportunity to get together with a friend or loved one, while being catered to an indulgent, sweet time. We know there are three things people really love: great coffee, rich chocolate, and premium ice cream, which is why we are giving you exactly that!

Join us this Sunday on Valentines day February 14th, at Izzy's Ice Cream located at 1100 2nd St. S. Minneapolis, 55415 from 7am-5pm to get in on this sweet deal.

$40.00 gets you all of this!

(2) "Misfit date for 2 exclusive latte" Dark Chocolate Covered Strawberry Latte, Poured over A Single Scoop of your choice of Izzy's Ice Cream (although we will recommend a few that work better than others) Both the latte, and Ice cream are made with all natural ingredients.

(4) Assorted Abdallah Truffles - Local Company Started in Minneapolis, Currently in Burnsville MN. http://www.abdallahcandies.com/

(2) Assorted Apples Of Eden meltaways in dark and or milk chocolate. Apples Of Eden is a candy store in the Greendale Village, Wisconsin. Owned and operated by Marcus' Mother and father. http://www.applesofeden.com/index2.html

(2) 6oz Whole Bean bags of...wait for it... VALENTINE COFFEE, out of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Choose between nine different origin offerings, listed lightest to darkest: Costa Rica, Ethiopia, Guatemala, Peru, Papua New Guinea, Brazil, Bali, Sumatra, Mexican Decaf.                                  (can be ground upon request) http://valentinecoffeeco.com/

What is a Chocolate Meltaway? Meltaway centers are made by mixing chocolate and a lauric fat (like coconut or palm oil) with some flavoring and letting it set, kind of a dairyless ganache. What makes them unique is the way they, well, melt away in your mouth. The combined melting point is well below both that of chocolate (94 °F) and coconut oil (76 °F), and both of those are below body temperature.


For those accompanying themselves we will have new offerings of Drink Specials, replacing our winter specials. These will certainly spark the interest of all types! Rum-Chata-Lata, chocolate peanut butter latte, pour over coffee sampler (4 different coffees meant to serve 2) as well as Kiddi + Izzy affogato (choose between (2) different Izzy Ice Cream flavors, and we will top it with a shot of espresso!

Kid friendly Coffee Free drinks available as well, such as a strawberry hot coco, and others.

2015/2016 Winter Drink Specials

2015/2016 Winter Drink Specials

The Drink menu in Izzy's consists of our entire previous menu, full of fun and traditional offerings one would expect to see at any third wave style brew bar. We still offer strictly manual methods for brewed coffee such as: pour-over, Chemex, Aeropress, Clever Dripper, Kalita Wave, Siphon and nitro cold brew. We currently offer 8 different single origin coffees, roasted by our great friends in Milwaukee - Valentine Coffee Roasters. Still tied to our creative seasonal offerings, we have what I believe is a killer winter drink list. When creating our seasonal winter offerings I had intentions to bring light to two drinks that are not as commonly known by the average coffee consumer, leading to the creation of the coco-mint con panna, and holiday cortado.

This version of a Con Panna is comprised of espresso poured over dark chocolate sea salt, provided by Indulgence Chocolatiers out of Milwaukee, which is then melted down by mixing, The drink is topped with a homemade: spearmint, peppermint and rosemary whip cream, and finally garnished with sprig of fresh mint.

The Holiday Cortado starts with the base being a real homemade brown sugar butter. The butter and spices are all mixed together, melted down, and caramelized to make for a burnt brown sugar underlying flavor, followed by the more distinguishable spices that make up the gingerbread profile. The espresso shot pours directly into the vessel with the butter, causing it to melt, and becomes ready to pair with the remaining 3oz of steamed whole milk.

Humpty Dumpty - The humpty Dumpty is our most savory beverage on the winter menu, given that the eggnog/milk mixture makes for a more viscous texture. Then coffee flavors are subtle and well rounded with the profile of the butter-rum and eggnog. The Humpty Dumpty is seasonal and wont be around long after the holidays, as eggnog becomes hard to source, so get it while it's here!

Nilla-Mint Latte - The Nilla-Mint Latte is the perfect balance of warm reminders of the winter season. scents of fresh peppermint, sweetness of vanilla and the flavors of dried spearmint, paired with the sensation of "warmth" obtained with the addition of rosemary. As complex as it may sound, it is a simple, and well balanced beverage that can be enjoyed by all types of coffee lovers!

Mayan Chata-Lata – The Mayan Chata-Lata is an addition to our already signature Chata-Lata beverage. The Mayan version of the Chata-Lata uses Indulgence Chocolatiers Mayan Spice Coco, then paired with our homemade horchata, which is steamed to the consistency of a latte. If you enjoy spicy chocolate, this special is a must!

Aside from all the fun "warm" drinks, we plan to eventually "cool" things down a bit. We have intentions, and are excited to be able to experiment on some fun new recipes involving ice cream, from non-other than the super premium ice cream retailer, Izzy's Ice Cream. Working on a ice cream infused coffee or espresso beverage may take some time, but I want this to be the best affogato-like experience around, regardless of the actual composition of the final beverage.
