Posted by Gina Pennington on


Welcome, coffee enthusiasts! While a great cup of coffee can stand alone, pairing it with the right food can take your experience to new heights. In today's blog post, we're exploring the art of coffee pairing, offering delicious suggestions to complement your favourite Penningtons brew. Whether you're enjoying a leisurely breakfast, indulging in a midday snack, or treating yourself to dessert, we've got you covered with the perfect food pairings for every occasion.

Pastries and Baked Goods: Picture this: a freshly brewed cup of coffee accompanied by a warm, flaky pastry. Is there anything more inviting? From buttery croissants to fruity danishes and crumbly scones, pastries and baked goods are a match made in heaven for your morning coffee ritual. Indulge in these delightful treats as you savour the rich flavours of your favourite brew.

Chocolate: For those with a sweet tooth, chocolate and coffee make an irresistible pairing. Dark chocolate, with its deep, complex flavours, compliments the boldness of coffee perfectly. Whether you're nibbling on a piece of dark chocolate on its own or enjoying a slice of decadent chocolate cake, this pairing is sure to satisfy your cravings for something sweet.

Nuts and Dried Fruits: Looking for a snack that's both nutritious and delicious? Look no further than nuts and dried fruits. The crunchy texture of almonds, walnuts, or pecans pairs beautifully with the smoothness of coffee, while the sweetness of dried apricots, figs, or cranberries provides a delightful contrast. It's the perfect balance of flavours and textures in every bite.

Cheese: Cheese lovers, rejoice! Cheese and coffee may seem like an unlikely pairing, but trust us, it works wonders. Whether you prefer hard cheeses like aged cheddar or Gouda, or soft cheeses like brie or camembert, there's a cheese out there to suit every coffee lover's palate. Create a cheese board with an assortment of cheeses, crackers, and fruits, and let the flavour journey begin.

Savory Snacks: Who says coffee pairings are limited to sweet treats? Savoury snacks like toasted baguette with olive oil or a charcuterie board with cured meats and pickles can be just as satisfying. The richness of the coffee balances the saltiness of the snacks, creating a harmonious combination of flavours that will leave you wanting more.

Fruit: For a refreshing and light pairing, look no further than fresh fruit. Whether you're enjoying the sweetness of berries or the zesty flavours of citrus fruits, fruit and coffee make a delightful duo. Add a splash of colour and freshness to your coffee break with a side of your favourite fruits.

The perfect coffee pairing is all about balance and harmony. Whether you're indulging in sweet treats, savoury snacks, or fresh fruits, there's a pairing out there to suit every taste and preference. So go ahead, experiment with different flavour combinations, and elevate your coffee experience to new heights.
