Feeling hot, hot, hot? As the mercury rises here in Hong Kong, we tend to turn towards refreshingly chilled long drinks, while replacing heavy desserts with something short and sweet to round off our lighter summer meals. But forget about sickly-sweet sodas and cloying ice creams; here at Profood we’re all about chilling out like grown-ups, meaning we’re busting out the beans for some caffeinated summer treats!
We’ve put together three authentically Italian coffee recipes that are perfect for the summer months, using only the finest Mogi Caffè luxury coffee. Founded in Bergamo back in 2007 by siblings Monica and Gianluigi Forcella, Mogi Caffè offer coffee with a conscience, focusing on an ethical, small-scale supply chain. The roasting process takes place in collaboration with cooperatives working to reintegrate young people who have previously had difficulties back into society. Producing coffee gives them a valuable trade, while the accountability of working with these smaller suppliers guarantees traceability and fair working practices.
So whether you’re a bean-to-cup devotee, dig the grounds, or love the click-and-run convenience of capsules, keeping your cool has never tasted so good. Worried you’ll be up all night? Mogi Caffè’s decaffeinated coffee is every bit as aromatic and delicious as the original!
The ultimate in sophisticated simplicity, this short coffee is the ideal digestif after an alfresco dinner party or a balcony meal à deux, and will round off your meal without that sinking feeling.
This summer classic is both refreshing and deceptively simple to make, using just two ingredients to create a delicious – and quintessentially Italian – chilled drink.
The ultimate in after-dinner indulgence, this gelato and espresso-based dessert-in-a-cup is a match made in coffee heaven.Prepare your short, or single, espresso in a small cup (approximately 30ml of coffee).
So if you’re looking to beat the heat this summer, chill out with one of these refreshing coffee creations... delizioso!
