We will give you ideas to take advantage of every last drop of your stimulating drink. A little coffee is enough to transform your recipes. Them you will add depth and complexity to sweet and savory dishes, without necessarily having a taste of the coffee.
Ways To Take Advantage Of Morning Coffee
Advice to preserve its flavor
If you made enough coffee that you won’t drink everything right away, do not let it sit at room temperature. It is best to cool quickly to retain its flavor. Cover and refrigerate this will prevent processed oils from rusting and turning sour.
Refrigerate or freeze
It will keep the quality of its flavor between three and five days, later it will start to get lost. If you will not consume it within that period, it is better to freeze it previously. Freeze it diced is an excellent idea.
Here are ideas to take advantage of it in your food and drinks:
Coffee is great for marinating when combined with ingredients that are a little sweet, like balsamic vinegar.
In the stew
Coffee adds depth and complements the earthy flavor of meat in stews and other slow cookers. It will highlight the flavor of your dish, but you will not distinguish its taste. Pour a little coffee into your finished brew or between one and two cubes per plate.
Baked Chocolate Desserts
Don’t be afraid to add a little coffee to your chocolate desserts, just they will taste more like chocolate because you amplify its flavor. Start with the classic chocolate cake.
In your sauces
Add coffee to your marinades, mole, and barbecue. The acidity of the coffee is perfect for sauces that you will serve alone or that are the base of a stew or soup.
Also, try recipes where the taste of the coffee will be the protagonist:
