21-Dec-2018 13:37:04 by WMF Marketing Team


Now that Christmas is only a few days away it’s time to get that festive menu all prepared and ready to treat your loved ones to the best day possible. Adding coffee to the menu is a great way to minimise the post dinner sleepiness, and they also work great as a pre-night-out pick me up! Here are a few of the recipes we’re hoping to try out this year.


Peppermint Mocha Cocktail

Recipe from Country Living


  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup whole organic coffee beans
  • 1 1/2 stick cinnamon sticks
  • 4 whole green cardamom pods
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tbsp dark rum


  1. Place the milk and crushed coffee beans in a saucepan. Heat the mixture to a simmer over medium-high heat, about 7 minutes. Immediately remove from the heat and let the beans steep in the milk for 15 minutes. 
  1. Strain the coffee mixture and transfer to the jar of a blender. Discard the crushed coffee beans. Add the cinnamon sticks, cardamom, and honey to the steeped milk and blend on high speed until the spices are coarsely ground, about 30 seconds.
