New menu recommends foods to pair with afternoon coffees

NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto has launched the first-ever ‘Afternoon Coffee’ menu in partnership with the London School of Coffee, following research revealing that coffee is becoming an increasingly popular afternoon drink of choice. Dolce Gusto has created a bespoke menu that people can recreate at home based on food pairing ideas

76% of Britons like to eat something while enjoying their afternoon coffee and the aim of this menu is to inspire consumers on what to accompany a cup of freshly brewed coffee. Briony May Williams, host of Food Unwrapped on Channel 4 and former Great British Bake-Off finalist, teamed up with Dolce Gusto to recreate the menu in her own kitchen.

The Afternoon Coffee menu, created by coffee expert and trainer Antonia Godward, includes:

  • Chocolate Tart – paired with NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Flat White or NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Café Au Lait pods
  • Honey, Pistachio Rose Cake – combined with the NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Americano pod
  • Chocolate Courtesan – paired with the NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Americano pod
  • Choux Buns with Cream Cheese, Concumber, Thyme & Honey – paired with the NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Americano pod
  • Whole Cheese Scones – paired with NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Flat White or NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Café Au Lait pods
  • Cardamom shortbread – combined with the NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Chococino pod

Yasmin Kadan, Social Media and Community Manager at Dolce Gusto, said: “We are extremely excited to partner with such a respected institution as the London School of Coffee to create this one-of-a-kind menu. The coffee market has seen significant growth in the UK in recent years, so we thought this would be a great opportunity to flip the classic ‘Afternoon Tea’ tradition, turning it into ‘Coffee the afternoon”. We hope consumers will be inspired by the delicious menu options. »

Antonia Godward, trainer at the London School of Coffee, said: “We were delighted to be able to partner with NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto to create the first-ever Afternoon Coffee menu. I’ve always had a passion for good quality coffee and have extensive experience in wine pairing, having been a pastry chef in a previous life, so I was looking forward to getting my teeth into it. We’ve seen that over the past few years the British have increasingly transformed into a nation of coffee drinkers, so hopefully people will see the menu and want to recreate it at home to go with their brew!

Briony Williams said: “Obviously I’m a foodie at heart, but also a bit of a coffee addict. Not only do I love an afternoon cup of coffee, but I also love the versatility of coffee as an ingredient. The Afternoon Coffee menu is unique and delicious, yet very accessible to recreate at home.

With coffee becoming more and more popular over the years, NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto is excited to bring something new to continue expanding the coffee experience at home.
