So, inspired by the collision of natural awe of two of my favorite beverages, I’ve lined up four Tequila and prepared coffee pairings for your enjoyment. While I don’t know whether my home-harvested beans will end up tasting delicious, one thing for sure is that these pairings, do.
Cold brew + Wild Common Ensamble Mezcal
Wild Common’s Ensamble Mezcal is refreshing and cool on the palate with just a touch of cream to it - a perfect sip to take after an active day on the water or on the slopes. Pair a pour in a veladora with a icy cold brew and you’re set up for a well deserved rest, and the energy to get back out there!
Espresso + Lobos Reposado
Whether it is a quick pick me up during cocktail hour, or enjoyed post dinner, espresso always tastes better when it’s alongside a glass of Tequila. Lobos Reposado with its spicy sweet profile pairs well with a smoky, strong-pulled espresso, and even better if you add a twist for that citrus pop!
Latte + 123 Organic Reposado
When I think of 123 Organic Reposado, first thing that comes to mind are the prominent notes of ripe bananas, toffee, and a touch of cream that back up the full flavored cooked agave backbone, so of course when it comes to pairing with coffee, a latte is your best bet. Both are to be enjoyed leisurely, with a good book, or even better, conversation.
Komos Extra Añejo has a powerful profile full of notes of citrus, toasted nuts, while still creating a smooth and enjoyable sipping experience and full bodied mouthfeel. For this expression, a cappuccino is the right fit where the espresso is allowed to stand out and is delicately balanced by a small amount of cream, and a heaping of foam.
