Kowalski's Signature Coffee is roasted locally in the Twin Cities and delivered weekly to our markets for the freshest coffee around. Our coffee is also Fair Trade and Organic. Jim Kowalski traveled to Brazil to meet local farmers and inspect the beans that would one day become Kowalski's Signature Coffee Roasts. That's why our customers can always shop with confidence, knowing we've already hand-selected only the best! Find a variety of ground bean, whole bean and K-cup options in the Grocery Department.

Kowalski's Signature Maple Syrup

Kowalski's Signature Grade A Maple Syrup is 100% pure. It's Minnesota Grown and locally produced by a third-generation family owned and operated business that has been producing quality maple syrup for over 80 years. Continually graded for flavor, color and density to ensure that our product maintains the highest quality standard, our syrup is more fluid than many of the standard breakfast "syrups" you may find on the shelf, imitations made with sugar and/or corn syrup instead of real maple.

A natural with hotcakes, waffles or even drizzled over your oatmeal or yogurt, Kowalski's 100% Pure Maple Syrup is also great in place of other sweeteners, especially in recipes for more liquid-like foods like smoothies, sauces and dressings.
