4- French Toast
Spice up your coffee time by having French toast on the side. Partnering well with sweet and savory ingredients like parmesan cheese and spinach, peanut butter and banana, or smoked salmon and sour cream; pair your French toast with a fresh brewed iced Mocha or hot white Americano to make your meal taste even better.
It may come as a surprise to many, but the fruit and coffee duo blend well together. If you are looking for a healthier and light snack with your morning cup of coffee, we recommend pairing it with some fruits like berries, plums, apricots, or peaches, as they add some citric-sweet flavor that perfectly balances off the bitterness in coffee.
6- Cookies and Muffins
Coffee makes it possible to get out of bed; muffins and cookies make it worthwhile. The sweetness of these baked treats pair perfectly well with any coffee. Be it chocolate chips, oats cookies, zucchini, and carrots juicy muffins; you will enjoy all the fluffiness and flavor with this pair.
There is no reason why two of the greatest things in life shouldn’t go together. While they may not be your usual go-to pair, coffee brings out the pizza flavor. For every pizza topping, there is the perfect cup of coffee that complements its overall taste. Iced and sweetened coffee pairs well with hot and spicy pizzas, while a pizza with chicken toppings and mild sauce matches well with dark roast.
8- Ice Cream
It may sound a little unusual, but the famous Italian dessert, Affogato Al Caffe, is all about mixing the best of both worlds – espresso and ice cream – into one delicious treat. This mix of hot and cold is addictive with an extra level of sweetness. Any ice cream that has flavors like vanilla, cinnamon, caramel, and chocolate can pair well with your cup of coffee.
