The Food/Coffee Pair
Why the food/coffee pair? Food, whether it be pastries or cooked foods, and coffee have always held a special pairing throughout the latest wave of specialty coffee culture. The food/coffee pairing holds certain complementary flavours that subtly pleasing to the taste buds. Beyond care and attention to detail that is put into both consumables, certain palate combinations are perfect and delicious together. This type of pairing also creates a unique coffee shop experience that goes beyond a takeaway coffee.
Coffees hold certain natural flavours that are developed during processing, roasting, and brewing. Lots of times there are sweet and fruity flavour notes that come from the acidity. Because of this coffee notes be complemented with certain foods to balance these flavours and mouthfeels. For example, coffee with berry notes can be paired well with a chewy pastry with fruits as the texture and subtle sweetness will be overwhelming but also enough to taste the sweetness.
