WITH A TWIST
We drink around 70 million cups of coffee every day in the UK, so celebrate National Coffee Day in style with our top caffeine hits
Coffee has come a long way since Ethiopian farmers first spotted their goats ‘dancing’ in the fields after munching on the coffee plant’s little red berries in around 800AD. Nowadays, qahhwat al-bun (Arabic for ‘wine of the bean’) has become an essential element of daily life. From a flat white to a cortado, everyone has their favourite caffeine hit, but to mark this year’s National Coffee Day (1 October), we’ve selected some sweet yet surprising ways to enjoy the UK’s most popular energy booster. Next time you host a dinner party, serve up a dual dose of espresso in the form of our Belgian chocolate mousse and layered sponge dessert and a rich, ready-made martini.
