The Perfect Partner for the Perfect Coffee

Ever wondered, what’s the perfect partner for your cup of coffee? The perfect accompaniment to bring out the richness of your blend?  I have. And, I’ve put together my favorite coffee pairings.

Coffee & Cookies

No coffee is complete without a cookie. From chocolate chip, double chocolate chunk, white chocolate and cherry, to the all important Oreo, the list is endless. There’s a reason why in Italy your coffee comes served with a biscotti on the side- biscuits and coffee are a match made in heaven.

Coffee & Cakes

Who doesn’t love their favourite cappuccino with a slice of cake, especially when there are so many to types choose from? With such flavors as Red Velvet, Carrot, and German Chocolate, you can’t go wrong. So go ahead and treat yourself. What better way to spend an hour than with a #cappuccino and sumptuous slice of cake?

Coffee & Cup Cakes

Speaking of whiling away the hours in a coffee shop. No visit would be complete without a coffee and a cupcake. The sweetness of the vanilla icing and softness of the sponge cake, compliment the bitterness of an Americano oh-so perfectly.
And, did you know November is National Peanut Butter Month? While a peanut butter muffin may be hard to come by, nothing beats the combination of a coffee and a peanut butter-spread toast.

I don’t know about you, but I can’t choose an ideal partner for my cup of coffee. One way to solve this tasty conundrum is to try each pairing and choose a favorite.

Luckily, I have my Nescafe Dolce Gusto coffee machine ready to go, and with one click of a button my #americano is waiting for me to choose. Which will it be- a chocolate chip cookie, a slice of red velvet, or maybe a vanilla cupcake? Time to get this study underway!
