If you’re a coffee enthusiast, then you’ll agree that the aroma of freshly ground coffee electrifies the senses. And if you’re luckily enough to have a local roaster then you’ll recall that the aromatics from freshly roasted beans can be mesmerising. With wafts of caramel to cocoa, from the enzymatic fruity properties to toasted nuts, the complexities of freshly roasted beans is simply hypnotising.
What is an LQR Espresso?
It’s Liqueurious (LQR) Coffea Coffee Liqueur mixed with a fresh shot of espresso on ice, essentially an invigorating double espresso with a warming alcoholic smile. Which in some ways is the best way to enjoy it, unadulterated, pure and simplistic. Allowing the full flavoured punch of pure speciality espresso lift your spirit as the gentle lapping waves of vanilla and caramel syrupy sweetness end in a brief slice of coffee, date and walnut cake. It’s a perfect way to relax when sipping on your own or better still indulging guests as an after dinner digestif.
