Orange and Coffee Liquer
I came across this recipe and couldn’t resist trying it out. Very straight forward; orange, coffee beans, sugar and alcohol in a jar and left for a while! No previous experience required, adjust according to taste – and i do keep tasting a sip here and there and have made a few adjustments!
Recipe taken from ‘The Flavour Thesaurus’ by Niki Segnit – great book for cookery enthusiasts.
MANCHESTER COFFEE FESTIVAL – formaly known as ‘Cup North’
We popped down to Manchester and flew back after sampling some fabulous coffees made by fellow northern coffee roasters …. and one or 2 rougue southerners had managed to book a stall too! If you have never been to a Coffee Festival then i reccommend it goes on a ‘to do list’. It’s an ideal way to sample a variety of brews,have a go at ‘Cupping’ and generally just soak up the coffee vibe. There are always lots of other coffee related products to peruse eg milks, chocolate, tea and errrr……. i came home with some peanut butter!!

Just a quick update for those of you who have been following The Coffee Plants. Positioning them on a sunny window sill has brought them on a treat, combined with regular watering! The tallest plant has grown @ 15 cms since April. The dilema now is that they need re potting and should i thin them out? And if that is the case where am i going to put all these plants!!
Ahh Christmas gifts maybe?
