Baileys cappucino
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • 4 tbsp Baileys (or other whisky liqueur)
  • 2 espresso shots
  • a pinch of cinnamon
Warm up the sugar and Baileys then brew the espressos and pour the sugar and Baileys on top. Sprinkle the cinnamon on top then serve a warming festive treat.
Gingerbread latte
  • 1 espresso shot
  • 2 shots of gingerbread syrup
  • steamed milk
  • a pinch of cinnamon
Brew the espresso and add the syrup and steamed milk. Sprinkle the cinnamon on top and enjoy with a ginger biscuit.
Spelt coffee biscuits
  • 200 g softened butter
  • 100 g brown sugar
  • 50 ml coffee or espresso
  • 200 g spelt flour
  • 30 g cocoa powder
  • 100 g plain coating chocolate
First, prepare a strong coffee or espresso and let it cool. Preheat the oven to 180 °C (top/bottom heat). Then cream the softened butter with the sugar for about five minutes and then mix in the flour and cocoa powder. Next, add the coffee/espresso and work everything into a smooth dough. Spoon the mixture into a piping bag with a fluted tip and pipe 30 to 40 cookies directly onto the baking paper. Bake for 12 minutes and then cool on a cooling rack. Heat the coating chocolate over a water bath and use to dip one end of the cookies.
