Schmidt’s And Stauf’s Team Up For A Delicious Coffee Inspired Cream Puff

Schmidt’s and Stauf’s Coffee Roasters have combined forces to create a truly irresistible Cream Puff of the Month – Latte Cream.

The cream puff flavor will be available through the end of January at Schmidt’s Restaurant in German Village and all three of Schmidt’s Sausage Trucks, which you can find throughout the city.

“Our latest cream puff creation pairs Schmidt’s famous filling and pastry shell with Stauf’s Coffee Roaster’s Cerrado Espresso blend. Early feedback from our guests is off-the-charts and we love an opportunity to partner with another beloved Columbus institution – especially during these times,” said Matt Schmidt, Schmidt’s Brand Ambassador and a fifth-generation member of the Schmidt family.

The Latte Cream Puff filling is made by adding fresh cold brew made from Cerrado Espresso beans to its vanilla cream base. The final touch is a dusting of Turkish ground coffee on top of the filled pastry.

You may remember the last ultra-successful collaboration for Schmidt’s, a Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip cream puff that they made with Graeter’s back in September.

“People absolutely loved the Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip cream puffs and that got us thinking of other incredible local brands we could partner with and that’s when we reached out to Stauf’s,” said Schmidt. “We are looking forward to many other local partnerships in the future.”

“When Matt approached us about using one of our coffees for a Schmidt’s cream puff filling, our Cerrado Espresso blend immediately came to mind,” said Lili Soldaini of Stauf’s Coffee Roasters. “Add this sweet, nutty espresso blend to Schmidt’s vanilla cream base, and the result is an amazing flavor that even non-coffee drinkers will love.”

If you think you’re the only one madly in love with these cream puffs, think again. Schmidt’s sells roughly 10,000 cream puffs each month, and I’m sure this new one will be a huge success. Schmidt’s Latte Cream Puff is available at Schmidt’s Restaurant at 240 E. Kossuth St. and at the Schmidt’s Sausage Trucks around Central Ohio. The restaurant is open 11 a.m. – 9 p.m. daily.
