Do you have leftover coffee?

 

Have you ever made coffee and then didn’t have time to drink it? It has definitely happened to me.

As you can read on “our values page”, https://thebrown-e.com/ourvalues/ we absolutely hate food waste and we are always thinking of ways to recycle leftovers. We encourage you to do the same. It is respectful, gratifying and delicious!

You can use leftover coffee in plenty of different ways: you can make iced coffee, coffee ice cubes and you can also add it to other recipes: for example, adding some coffee to chocolate will intensify the final flavour.

We wanted to start using leftover coffee in a simple and fun way. After sharing our caramel sauce recipe, we wanted you to practice it again adding a different flavour and what’s better than coffee?

Ingredients

  • 50 ml ready to drink coffee
  • 125 g sugar
  • 100 ml cream
  • 30 g butter
  • 1 pinch of salt

Instructions

  1. Weigh your ingredients. Prepare a saucepan and a wooden spoon.

  2. Pour the coffee into the saucepan. Add the sugar and heat both ingredients over medium heat. Stir until some bubbles come up on the surface.

  3. It is more difficult to see when the sugar becomes caramel, as the colour is darker from the beggining. Don't stop stirring and trust your senses. The smell and the consistency will tell you when sugar becomes caramel. It has taken me 5 minutes.

  4. Remove it from the fire. Add the cream and stir carefully. Put it back on the stove for a minute and continue stirring.

  5. Add the butter, mixing with your wooden spoon. 

    VoilĂ ! You have just made coffee sauce!
