Taking the Plunge with the New Larozza Coffee

Finding good, strong (and most importantly) proper coffee is becoming easier to find these days for your cafetiere. None of this instant coffee nonsense. Actual decent coffee. But once you've found that brand whose coffee suits your tastes, changing or trying another coffee can become a little hard. Well, at least with me it is. All the 'ifs' and 'buts' come to mind : "What if I don't like it?" "What if  love it?" "What if? What if?"

So recently, I took the plunge (pun intended * wink*). I was approached by Discount Coffee to try out their new coffee, Larozza Crema Ground Coffee, which is part of their own brand's products.

I must admit the name of the company did make it seem like the coffee would be some sort of rip-off, but I was pleasantly surprised by the coffee (lesson learnt: don't judge a book by it's cover). Larozza Cream Ground Coffee is described as a premium Italian blend that combines sweet Brazilian coffee beans and Colombian and South American Arabica coffee.

As you know, especially those following me on Twitter, I love my coffee to be like my man; strong and dark. I joke, I joke, but I do love a strong, dark coffee. I love my coffee to be flavoursome and with a robust body with a smooth aftertaste and the Larozza coffee does deliver on that. From the moment you open the pack to making the coffee, it just oozes with flavour.

If you like your coffee a little lighter, here's my recipe on making a cappucino with the Larozza Crema Cround Coffee that you can make at home.

You just need:

Larozza Crema Ground Coffee
Cafetiere (mine's from Bodum. Similar one here)
A glass of your choice
Boiled water
Heated milk
Honey or stevia.

Getting down to business:

Ok, so boil water and pour it in into your glass until it's about a third.

Put the Larozza Crema Ground Coffee into the Cafetiere and pour the boiled water into it. Wait a few minutes before you push the plunger.

Whilst you're waiting, heat up a half glass of milk until it's boiling. Once it's boiled, push the plunger in the Cafetiere and pour that coffee into the glass. Stir in the honey and/or stevia if you have a sweet tooth. Then empty the coffee beans from the Cafetiere.***

Rinse the Cafetiere (you don't want any coffee beans in the milk) and pour the hot milk into it.

Then, wait for it, this is the fun part. Take the plunge and just keep plunging the milk until it thickens in volume (about 3 minutes). A bit of arm work for you ;)

The milk should have thickened in volume and also be frothy. Pour it into your glass to the top and voila! Cappucino for you!

I make it with soya milk and really love the combination of the nuttiness from the milk with the robust coffee flavour.

***Don't throw away the coffee beans! Put them in a container and let them dry out for a few days. My next blog post will give you a recipe on what to do with those ground coffee beans!
