‘Coffee meets power food’ ☕️ 🥘
What comes to your mind, when reading about the term #coffeepairing
Coffee & chocolate? 🍫 Coffee & cheese? 🧀
What about a whole dinner 🥘🍴with a 3-course meal served not with wine 🍷 but coffee ☕️ Sounds weird? Crazy? Interesting? 🤔🤩🤪
Let me tell you this, coffee has even more aromas than wine! About 800 to be precise! 😲 because, coffee is a fruit! 🌱🍒☕️
Why coffee pairings? The flavor profile of a coffee, when matched with similar notes in food, can become the gateway to appreciating specialty coffee! ✨
But, there’s not only the way of mirroring a flavor in coffee with a certain food - to highlight a key flavor for example -, there’s also the approach of contrasting to balance out flavors. 🤓
For the exclusive dinner event @michaelhoffmannberlin
, chef 👨🍳 out of Berlin and crazy about all things healthy, fresh & local, when it comes to the ingredients he uses, and me are using both approaches: mirroring and contrasting.
The three course dinner we created for @berlincoffeefestival
uses coffee as an ingredient as well as certain coffees we’ll serve with each course provided by our friends at @coffeecircle.
