ORGANIC French Press with Salted Irish Creme Topper

 

There’s nothing that puts us more in the mood for St Paddy’s Day celebrations than Bailey’s Irish cream & a strong cup of coffee. We decided to elevate this seasonal favorite with our Family Reserve Organic Black & Tan made with the Copper Bodum French Press and a homemade Bailey’s style Irish Cream Topper.

Our Organic Black & Tan serves as the perfect base. It’s a medium roast with great body, light acidity and the cocoa folded into the cream pulls out the natural notes of dark chocolate found in Central American Coffees.

Ingredients:

  • 1 rounded tbsp PapaNicholas Family Reserve Organic Black & Tan Coffee per 4 oz of water
  • 1 ½  Cups Heavy Whipping Cream 
  • 2 tsp Cocoa Powder

French Press Black & Tan 

Step 1: Using a stovetop or electric kettle, boil desired amount of water. Meanwhile, grind beans to a medium-coarse grind for best results. We used the Bodum Bistro Grinder.

Step 2: After coffee comes to the boil, let water cool for 30 seconds to prevent scorching the grounds. Spoon coffee into French Press and fill about ⅓ of the press, making sure all grounds are saturated. After 30 seconds, give the grounds a quick stir and add remaining water.

Step 3: Place lid on press with plunger pulled all the way up. We recommend letting coffee brew for 3-4 minutes.

Final Step: After coffee is finished brewing, slowly push plunger all the way down and pour into mug. Then gently top with Irish Crème & sprinkle with smoked sea salt. Is it just us or does this look (and taste) a little like a Guinness?
