Q. Can you recommend any festive recipes for coffee? I have lots of family and friends coming this December, and would love to impress them with a delicious treat after dinner.

A. Here are a few drinks for you to try which are delicious and can be made using an authentic Italian espresso from our premium bean to cup machines.
150ml of semi-skimmed milk
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp brown sugar
Froth 150ml of semi-skimmed milk to give you hot milk with some foam on the top. Pour the milk into a large cappuccino-style cup or mug. Add the brown sugar and cinnamon, mix thoroughly. Stir in the espresso and use a spoon to add extra foam. Dust with cinnamon, or stir with a cinnamon stick.
20ml egg liqueur
Whipped cream, if desired
Pour the liqueur into a champagne glass. Very slowly, fill in the coffee to provide a sunrise effect. You can serve this coffee with whipped cream on top for an even more luxurious feel.
