Christmas and Coffee: The Perfect Pairing
Christmas morning is one of the most special days of the year. As soon as you wake up, the excitement starts to bubble - what magic lies beneath the tree?! A warm, cozy room, lit with the soft twinkle of the tree lights and the scent of breakfast baking in the background. The only thing missing is your favourite holiday mug filled with a steaming, rich cup of coffee (which, if you have kids, is especially necessary!)
Such a special day calls for a special coffee.
The Perfect Breakfast Pairing
Freshly baked cinnamon buns, a Christmas morning egg-and-ham casserole, or a flaky, buttery pastry… whatever your traditional Christmas breakfast is, our French Breakfast Half-Dark Blend will perfectly compliment your meal. This crowd-pleasing blend has fruity notes along with a hint of caramel and vanilla.
Decadent and Sweet
The list of coffee-based holiday drinks is endless, but the employees from your nearest coffee shop are probably home enjoying their own Christmas morning traditions. It’s deceptively simple to make your own specialty drinks at home.
Try a peppermint mocha for your Christmas morning brew:
- Start by brewing a strong cup of Aladdin’s smooth Viennese roast
- While that is brewing, mix together your favourite hot chocolate.
- Add a dash of peppermint extract (or make it extra-special by making your own peppermint simple syrup by boiling a cup of water and mixing in a cup of sugar with some fresh mint leaves).
- Then, mix equal parts of hot chocolate and coffee, top with some fresh whipped cream, and crumble up a candy cane to add a festive garnish!
The Perfect Holiday Treat
If a fancy specialty mocha isn’t your style, you can still enjoy a delicious new flavour of coffee. Aladdin’s Crème Brulée flavoured coffee has the instantly-recognizable flavours of custard and vanilla topped with carmelized sugar. What better way to enjoy your Christmas celebrations than with a Christmas-pudding inspired brew?
You deserve a festive flavour on Christmas morning!
