Tips on how to develop your coffee palate

Coffee has over 1,500 unique compounds that go into creating individual flavors and aromas. Developing the ability to distinguish and identify those unique flavors is an art anyone can learn. All it takes is time, patience, a strong love of coffee, and a sense of sensory adventure. In this entry, we'll walk you though the process and tools needed to develop a refined, expansive coffee palate.

Sweet banana coffee

I love having a banana with my morning coffee. I never considered combining the banana with the coffee until now. The result is a uniquely delicious, sweet cappuccino style latte combining homemade banana syrup, coffee, and frothed milk.

Peanut butter mocha — 2 ways

Love that peanut butter and chocolate combination? Here are two wonderful peanut butter mocha coffees, one hot, and one chilled. These recipes put a twist on the traditional mocha as they call for honey and coconut water - natural sweet alternatives to sugar. Enjoy!

Vietnamese style coffee

This recipe is a quick and easy play on traditional Vietnamese egg coffee. Often in Vietnam the coffee is quite bitter. Adding egg yolk leads to a clearer, less bitter brew, without any loss of body. When combined with condensed milk the result is a wonderfully aromatic sweet yet mild treat that I found surprisingly delicious!

Chocolate covered coffee cups

Using a chocolate covered waffle cone is a great and easy way to jazz up your dessert coffee. This is a tasty treat that can be used in multiple ways. Fill the cups with coffee for the adults, or ice cream, or pudding for the children. What a crowd pleaser!!! Best of all they are quite easy to make and customize for whomever you are serving!
