What Coffee Goes Best With Your Breakfast?
Don’t laugh, but I have found, that the right coffee can change your breakfast. Much like the right wine, pairs best with certain dinners, coffees pair well with different meals. Eggs, pastries, or oatmeal all have their own best fit first thing in the morning.
Oatmeal is a classic way to start the day – simple, filling and hearty. Topped with some fresh fruit and almonds or walnuts and honey, its flavor goes from bland to grand. This mild-flavored breakfast food goes well with a lightly roasted coffee like Eight O’Clock Coffee’s French Vanilla or Hazelnut. Eight O’Clock Coffee Roaster Brewing Tip: Mix half a serving of Ground Hazelnut and Ground French Vanilla to deliver a Sweet and Nutty flavor.
Sweet breakfasts cooked on the griddle, like pancakes, waffles and French toast, are usually topped with syrups, jams or whipped cream. To offset all that sweetness, go with the bold flavor of an espresso or dark-roasted coffee. Eight O’Clock’s Dark Italian Roast hits the mark and is perfect for espresso aficionados. Eight O’Clock Coffee Roaster Brewing Tip: Add a dollop of Whipped Cream in place of Milk or Cream and savor the European experience.
The traditional American-style breakfast of Eggs, Bacon, Sausage, or a hearty Ham steak is a match for Eight O’Clock Coffee’s Original Roast. Whether you like your eggs fried, scrambled or sunny side up, this medium roast coffee is an ideal choice to balance the savory flavor of egg dishes. Eight O’Clock Coffee Roaster Brewing Tip: Set aside a ½ cup of coffee to create a toast mopping red eye gravy to garnish the Ham Steak. Full recipe provided (Foodnetwork.com).
