Normandy Coffee Recipe

Normandy Coffee Recipe

Normandy, like Washington State in the United States of America, is known for its apple orchards, and gives it name to many dishes made with apple juice or apple sauce. This recipe blends the flavor of apples with spices for a delicious, tangy coffee drink.

Ingredients : Serves 4

475 ml / 2 cups

Strong black coffee (espresso strength, or filter/plunger brewed at 75g coffee per 1 liter of water)

475 ml / 2 cups Apple juice

30 ml / 2 tablespoons Brown sugar, to taste

3 Oranges, thinly sliced

2 Cinnamon sticks

Pinch of ground allspice

Pinch of ground cloves

Cinnamon stick, to serve

Method :

Bring all the ingredients to the boil over a moderate heat. Then reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Strain the liquid into a preheated flash or serving jug. Pour into cappuccino-style cups, adding a cinnamon stick to each, if you wish.


Tips : This recipe could be made into an alcoholic drink if one-fourth of the apple juice were replaced with Calvados, adding when the heat is reduced to simmer in the second step. Do not allow the Calvados to boil.
