Coffee Mousse

We finally created a recipe for all the coffee lovers (including us), this recipe is all you could ask for in a coffee mousse. It’s full of flavor, creamy texture and really fresh. Perfect for a sunny day.

Coffee is a science, all the details put into creating these aromatic and delicious coffee beans are so meticulous and precise. For the perfect coffee dessert, you must choose the perfect coffee.

What is the perfect coffee you may ask and there is no wrong answer. The coffee you like the most is the perfect coffee for you. Some people like stronger coffees and some more subtle ones. Preference is key and you should pick what you like the most.

If you are looking for suggestions for coffees, we recommend that you try coffees from South America, especially the ones from the Amazon jungle. Peru, Brazil and Colombia are countries you should consider buying your coffee from.

We garnished the coffee mousse with chocolate and mint. Chocolate and coffee go together very well and the mint is perfect to give a little touch of freshness.
