Wild Foods: An Excellent Role Model for Business
Do you want food companies to create high quality products that also value every aspect of sustainability? If not, maybe you’re not sure what that means. Take a look at some of the philosophy and values behind Wild Foods.
“Knowing where our ingredients come from, how they were made, and the impact they have on the world, is of paramount importance because we believe that food is the most important aspect of health, body composition, performance and longevity.
We also believe that the current food system is broken and want to do our part in helping fix it.
Our products are made from the highest quality ingredients and in a way that maintains the Real Food nutrition of each product while respecting the environment and the laborers that produce the ingredients.”

I’ve been taste-testing cups of Wild Coffee (from heaven) all week long! I reviewed Wild Foods’ Wild Sidamo medium roast coffee made from a single-origin blend of Ethiopian beans grown at 5,000-7,200 feet in vertisol soil. It’s fruity and floral with hints of blueberry.
Do I love it?
Of course! I typically drink medium roast coffee blends and I find the Sidamo blend tastes quite superior to what I’m used to drinking. I tend to buy premium coffee blends but occasionally drop down to cheaper store brands every so often.
Wild Coffee offers a rich and full flavor unlike many larger brands and essentially any office coffee you’ve tasted. It’s strong and it gives me my much needed morning kick to get the day going! My favorite part is that it is produced by a company that clearly cares about the effects of their business on everyone involved in the production process to customer satisfaction.

Homemade Maple Biscoff
The best way to enjoy high Wild Coffee is to sip it in between bites of deliciously spiced homemade gourmet cookies. I created a mock Biscoff cookie recipe using pure maple syrup, cinnamon and ground cloves.
It’s easy and perfect for the Fall season.
- 2 c flour
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp ground cloves
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 c unsalted butter (vegan is great)
- 1/3 c pure maple syrup
- 1/4 c firmly packed brown sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- Preheat oven to 350F.
- Mix flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
- In a separate bowl, mix butter, maple syrup, brown sugar and vanilla.
- Gradually blend flour into butter mixture until well combined.
- Place dough between two pieces of parchment paper and use a rolling pin to create a large sheet, 1/2cm thick.
- Bake on cookie sheet for 20-25 minutes. (22 minutes was perfect for me.)
- Cool on cooling rack before serving with Wild Coffee.
