We have gathered here the best coffee recipes, classic or revisited, for great moments of sharing and greed in the spirit of a Love of Coffee.
Why should coffee stop after breakfast or coffee break, and stay in its cup? Let’s invite it to our tables and let us be carried away by its aromas with these unique desserts, dishes, and drinks.
PREPARE YOUR COFFEE WITH AN ITALIAN COFFEE MAKER
- Pour hot water into the base.
- Add the ground coffee to the funnel, leveling it without tamping.
- Place the funnel on top of the base.
- Screw the coffee pot onto the base. Make sure everything is tight.
- Leave the bottom lid open and heat on the stovetop.
- Enjoy, it’s ready!
PREPARE YOUR COFFEE USING A PLUNGER COFFEE MAKER
- Grind your coffee using a manual coffee grinder
- Pour one measuring spoon (about 7.5g) per cup
- Heat the water in the kettle (between 88 and 92°C depending on the roast of your coffee)
- Pour in the hot water: 90 ml per cup
- Let the coffee brew for 3 min 30 / 4 minutes
- Squeeze evenly down
- Taste it!
- Grind the coffee coarsely and place it in an airtight container or a plunger coffee maker.
- Stir in the water. This will cause bubbles.
- Close the container and let it brew for 12 hours at room temperature.
- Filter the coffee in a strainer or press the plunger if you used a plunger coffee maker.
Admit it’s pretty simple, right? The hard part is waiting 12 hours for the brewing process to be completed.
All that’s left to do is add a few ice cubes and flavor your coffee to your liking (milk, sugar, etc.).
Don’t forget to keep the cold-brewed coffee in the refrigerator!
TO MAKE YOUR ICED COFFEE
1. In a glass, add ice cubes, one-part cold brew coffee, and one-part cold water.
2. Flavor your beverage as you prefer (milk, vegetable drink, sugar, maple syrup, etc.).
3. For a less intense flavor, simply dilute the COLD BREW concentrate further by adding more cold water to your beverage. Enjoy!
