Coffee: Beyond the Mug and into the Kitchen! ☕️

Get ready to rewrite your coffee routine!

In this episode, we ditch the mug and venture into the delicious possibilities of coffee-infused cuisine. Inspired by Lisa’s recent trip to Hawaii, we’ll taste test unique treats like coffee-infused granola and decadent white chocolate-covered pea berries.

But that’s just the beginning! Our culinary adventure then explodes with Ashley sharing her mouthwatering repertoire of coffee-inspired desserts. (Lisa learns what an affogato is!) You will be surprised at the versatility of coffee, and its ability to transform both desserts and savory dishes with its unique depth and aroma.
