HOW TO PERK UP YOUR COFFEE
Make barista-style brews at home with our rich and robust Brazilian single-origin beans
I’m guilty of splurging on takeaway coffees more than once a week, but our new Brazilian single-origin coffee has inspired me to make more at home. Rich yet sweet, with subtle toasty notes, it makes a velvety espresso that definitely rivals my favourite café. Better yet, it supports small, sustainable growers in Minas Gerais, a state in Brazil known for its speciality beans. I always make mine in a stovetop percolator then add hot milk, frothed with a whisk. To try latte art, blob five dots of milk on top of your espresso then use the end of a spoon to make a flower pattern. Or swirl a little cocoa powder on top of a milky coffee, finishing with edible flowers if you’re feeling fancy. To make iced coffee, pour espresso over ice in a tall glass, top up with water and finish with mint leaves – or for an indulgent twist, a scoop of vanilla ice-cream.
