Amp up your coffee with one of these creative household hacks
· Make it minty: If you want a natural flavour for your mocha or hot chocolate, brew mint tea (or mint leaves) and use this beautifully brewed water to make your hot chocolate or mocha
· A dash of cinnamon makes all the difference: Spice up your French Press by adding a pinch of cinnamon to the grounds before plunging for a spicy kick to your morning coffee
· Add cheese! Yes, really… Serve bold dark Asian coffees with a cheese board pairing – this is where dreams come true! If you are open to getting your mind blown, grind the coffee very fine, cut up some cubes of medium cheddar, dip into honey and then dip into the ground coffee and eat… honestly this is a game changer!
Make that iced coffee even better
· Make Cold Brew at home by steeping coffee in a French Press for 20 hours and letting it cool. Add slices of orange if using an African coffee as it highlights the juicy acidic notes.
· Make coffee ice cubes with VIA sachets and add to already iced coffee so the flavour doesn’t dilute
· Add honey to hot or cold coffee for a calming natural sweetness
· Let a French Press of Kenyan coffee cool to room temperature, mix equal parts coffee and lemonade in a glass, add ice and enjoy a refreshing afternoon beverage
· Add a vanilla pod to your French press for a subtle hint of vanilla as the coffee infuses.
