Coffee for Christmas

christmas-791118_640We love to build time for coffee into every part of our day, and that’s especially true at Christmas. Here are our top ‘coffees for Christmas’ to help you enjoy your day.

First thing on Christmas Day morning

Getting up late, opening presents…the perfect accompaniment to Christmas Day morning is a long, indulgent coffee. Make a big pot of your favourite coffee, and pour it into heated mugs. Top with whipped cream, a sprinkle of cinnamon and chocolate powder and maybe a mince pie on the side.

Mid morning on Christmas Day

Food to prepare, late minute preparations to make…it’s time for something a little stronger. Team a shot of rich, dark espresso with a drizzle of our lovely festive gingerbread flavoured coffee syrup¬†for a caffeine kick that’ll get you though the next part of the day.

After lunch on Christmas Day

You’ve just eaten your own body weight in turkey and stuffing, and all you want to do is lie around on the sofa waiting for the Queen’s Speech. Try a milky latte made with skimmed milk – this is gentle on your digestion, but will give you the caffeine boost needed to encourage you out for a post-lunch walk.

Christmas Day evening

The day’s done, the food’s eaten, all the presents are distributed and it’s time to relax. Indulge yourself with a traditional Irish coffee. Pour hot black coffee into a heatproof glass until it’s 2/3 full. Stir in 1 teaspoon of sugar, and add a single measure (around 25ml) of whisky (or whiskey, if you’re being purist!). Hold a tablespoon over the top of the glass, and pour double cream over it until the cream floats on top of the drink in a thick layer. Drink, with the last of the mince pies.

We’d like to wish all our customers a very merry Christmas, and to say thank you for all your support during 2015.
