Adding coffee to perk up your favorite recipes may seem like uncharted territory, so remember these tips before diving in. For starters, most coffees pair well with cloves, cinnamon, allspice, garlic, salt, and citrus. Secondly, warming coffee beans in a pan before grinding enhances the flavor. Last but not least, if you are using coffee in a recipe that is not going to be cooked, like a sauce or syrup, use brewed coffee to avoid the grainy texture of ground coffee beans.
