Coffee is a pretty serious business in our house. We don't have just any old beans in the cupboard. I love trying out different varieties, different countries and roasters but I don't always have time to go and find something I haven't tried before. So when the guys from Blue Coffee Box got in touch to see if I'd like to try out their coffee it sounded right up my street!
Each month you get three different coffees delivered through your letterbox
It's #befair fortnight until 12th October which is all about asking the question, "Are we really as fair as we think?". The Fairtrade Foundation is working to make us aware of small acts of fairness that can make a big change; like switching your morning coffee to a fair trade coffee. The people at the Fairtrade Foundation sent me a variety of coffees to try and I set about making a fair bake. This recipe for chocolate and coffee shortbread uses
Although more of a tea drinker I do enjoy a good coffee. It has to be 'my' perfect coffee though; strong, not too bitter and creamy. It's surprisingly hard to find my ideal coffee so I tend to create something reasonable at home. So when Puro coffee got in touch to see if I wanted to sample some of their coffee I thought it was a great excuse to hone my coffee making skills.
I have to admit that I had never heard of Puro until they got in touch.
I have been meaning to make some shortbread for a while but things just seem to get in the way and before I know it I'm tucked up in bed thinking, "Tomorrow. Tomorrow will be shortbread day", it seemed to be a never ending cycle. However many things happen I always try to make time to bake a biscuit; there's nothing else that can fill the void like making a homemade treat. To bring about my biscuit making I set about creating a coffee chocolate shortbread.
