BREWING TIPS

BREW COFFEE LIKE A PROFESSIONAL

BREWING TIPS

Award

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! It certainly is for me as I have just been crowned Champion of the SCAE UK Coffee in Good Spirits 2016. I also enjoy the festive period because I am encouraged by friends and family to drin…sample lots of booze. All in a professional capacity, of course. Which gets me out of washing dishes or carving turkeys. And who wouldn’t enjoy creating something delicious that also happens to contain alcohol?

So, my friends, I’m sharing with you my three favourite coffee cocktail recipes for the festive season. I’ve ordered these from easiest to make to hardest. The first two are pretty simple and at this time of the year you should pretty much have all you need in the cupboard to make them. The third is one of my signature cocktails from the CIGS Competition. It takes at least 24 hours to prepare, so be warned. But it does make for a great excuse to avoid another round of charades. Best of luck and do share with me how you got on in the comments section.

All my recipes serve one. I’ll leave you to figure out why. Multiply all the measures by the number of people you want to serve.

I had the pleasure of meeting Rosemary Trent, director of Pueblo a Pueblo at the Specialty Coffee Conference of America (SCAA) back in 2014. She is one of those amazing women in coffee; kind, bright and dedicated to making a positive change to the lives of farmers. That’s why it’s so exciting to be working with her on a new project we’re supporting in Guatemala.

It’s all about bees. Yes, those buzzing “pests” we once took for granted. We’ve all now finally realised that unless we preserve them and other pollinators, food production can’t keep up with worldwide food demand. We can only hope that realisation is not too late.

COLD_BREW

It’s hard to tell how the weather is going to go this summer, as I write this it’s overcast, muggy and humid. Even though the sun might not be out, I need something to cool me down. Luckily for me I have just the thing, Cold Brew Coffee.

Cold brew is simple to make and makes the perfect long drink to enjoy in the sun. It’s the ideal accompaniment to lazy afternoons spent with friends and a barbecue. Cold Brewed Coffee keeps you cool without the need to resort to something stronger. Chilled on the inside, chilled on the outside.
