Baking & Cooking with Coffee: 24 Must-try Coffee Recipes
At Crush, we’re crazy about coffee – not only do we love to drink it, we love baking and cooking with it too. There’s something about the earthy flavour that adds lovely toasted notes to a dish. Now, coffee is often used in desserts, but we think they belong in savoury dishes too… here are a couple of our favourite coffee recipes.
