April Topic

Tips for the Best coffee & Best dessert choices :

#1- Pair more acidic, lighter roast coffees with berry and fruit dishes. Light Roasts such as a snappy but balanced Mocha Java or a medium light Kenyan AA with Fruit torte, Fruit plate, or Blueberry pie

#2- Medium bodied coffees, with a reduced acidity and lesser roast time work well with similarly textured desserts. Medium Roasts, such as a Costa Rican, Guatemalan, or Vienna blends go with Lemon tarts, Custards, Tiramisu, Cheesecake or Cheese plates.

#3- Heavy, full-bodied coffees are best with decadent chocolate or heavy cream desserts. Dark roasts, including French and Italian roasts/blends work with Tortes, Dark chocolate, Vanilla & chocolate ice creams, Rich chocolate cakes, and Mousses.
