Like Starsky and Hutch, Batman and Robin, Chandler Bing and Joey Tribianni, good food deserves good, quality, coffee to pair with and further complement —and even bring out–its flavors. But you don’t need to drive down to your local coffee shop every time you need a fix; we have an array of quality barista-style coffee in pods that you can conveniently make at home.

You can create your own sensory heaven and match your favorite foods with our Ese Pods depending on the aroma, intensity, and size that you prefer. Tazzulella is my favorite because it is reminiscent of good ol’ home-style brew, and goes well with almost anything.

Nevertheless, here are some other awesome coffee and food combos that you can try with your cup of Joe:

1. Beignets

Beignets, New Orleans beignets to be more specific, are commonly eaten for breakfast, but could also be served for dessert. This pastry starts off with chunks of dough filled with plantains or berry jams, and then deep fried until golden brown. It is usually served with powdered sugar on top and is perfect with our VIVACE. Its rich and robust flavor plus intense aroma goes well with the berry filling of the beignets and the sweetness of the powdered sugar.

2. Coffee Cake

This dessert item practically couldn’t do without coffee, but no other beverage goes well with it other than coffee. Pair it with our KENYA and it becomes the holy grail of coffee lovers. The coffee cake’s flavor, its not too flakey texture, and not so sweet taste highlight KENYA’s rich aroma and intense fruity notes. This cake would also work with VANIGLIA; its vanilla flavor and delicately sweet aftertaste will add another flavor profile to the coffee cake.

3. Chocolate Hazelnut Crepes

Here’s a treat for your sweet tooth! Choco Hazelnut Crepes go best with our COLOMBIA; its average acidity and fragrant aroma strikes a perfect balance with the sweetness and creaminess of the chocolate hazelnut filling. Have it as a coffee break snack or as a dessert to cleanse the palate after a light meal.

4. Scones

Who would have thought that scones are made for anything else other than tea, right? Yup, we did. You learnt it here. No, just kidding! Of course, the acidity of the fruit fillings tastes perfect with a sweet and aromatic coffee, like our GRIGNA. Gentle, slow roasting has allowed this light-bodied Espresso to preserve its aromatic notes and to obtain a long-lasting creaminess in the cup. Grigna naturally contains a low amount of caffeine, so you can enjoy it anytime of the day.

5. Reuben Sandwich

Oh, man! Slabs of pastrami, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, peppery watercress, hot chillies, and tangy Thousand Island dressing between slices of warm rye bread: can Reuben Sandwich get any more perfect? Why yes. Yes it can—with a cup of our JAMM’JA. The rich and aromatic yet never overpowering taste of this coffee offers a refreshing palate cleanse after such a hefty meal.

6. Granola Bars

Granola bars are convenient grab-and-go snacks that could give you a much needed energy boost when it’s a hectic day in the office. Need a stronger buzz for that report you need to finish in under an hour? Pair your granola bars with a cup of our CAFFE’ GUARANA. Guarana berries contain 4 times the caffeine content of a coffee bean. This granola bar-Caffe Guarana combo is also ideal for physically fit people as saponins and tannins in Guarana provide extra stimulant effects.

If you want to try high-quality Italian coffee that you can make at home, 101CAFFE’ is your best bet. We provide a wide selection of products including coffee beans, coffee capsules, and coffee pods. Check out our online shop for a wide selection of coffee brands.

Go on. Get snacking. You deserve it. 😉
