Liqueur coffees are a great way to round off a good meal. Whether you’re looking to offer liqueur coffees in your restaurant or would like to provide them to guests at a dinner party, we have some great recipes to choose from. The Calypso coffee featured below is a wonderful fusion of aromatic Americano coffee and Tia Maria liqueur. Any of our bean to cup coffee machines will create superb Americano for this recipe at the touch of a button.
1 Freshly brewed Americano coffee
25ml of Tia Maria liqueur
1 teaspoon of Demerara sugar
25ml fresh pouring cream
Take a latte glass from your cup warmer. If you don’t have a cup warmer then place a spoon into the glass and fill with boiling water, the spoon will absorb the heat from the water to prevent the glass cracking. NEVER use a cold glass as adding hot liquid may cause it to crack.
Pour the shot of Tia Maria liqueur into the bottom of the latte glass
Brew the Americano coffee from your bean to cup coffee machine. Pour the Americano into the latte glass leaving a 15mm gap at the top.
Add the teaspoon of Demerara sugar and stir until thoroughly dissolved, it is important the sugar dissolves completely as this ensures the cream floats.
Place a teaspoon face up into the coffee so that the curved part of the teaspoon is just touching the surface. Pour the cream from a small jug onto the spoon, the cream will flow off the sides of the spoon and float on top of the coffee. Serve immediately.
