7 Perfect Treats To Enjoy With Espresso

When we work hard, it is such a pleasure to sit back and enjoy the perfect coffee along with a treat! I have put together some recipies for enjoying espresso at home.

1. Perfect Cheese Platter  

An ideal taste sensation goes well with either wine or espresso. I love to have a tasting cheese plate with coffee after a meal or just for a snack. It’s a special treat when you select a variety for cheeses with different flavors and textures. Each bit is a surprise delight and your favorite espresso drink just caps the experience. See some tips on putting together a good selection of cheeses and how to store them below this cheese board.

2. Chocolate Treats

Brownies are the perfect treat to have with your espresso. They usually taste better, the day after baking. This makes them good to keep stored in an airtight container ready for when you have a coffee break.

7. Coffee & Reading Treat


Reading it doesn’t matter if you enjoy your favorite local newspaper, pc tablet, magazine, or or novel it’s always a relaxing treat with a well made espresso.

There have been a host of studies about reading and several years ago a bibliotherapist (one who encourages us to read). To find out more about the therapeutic benefits of reading and how it can be good for clearer thinking and relationships see:-
