Featured in: Unexpected Ways to Cook with Coffee

MAKES 8 WAFFLES
1 HOUR

Ingredients

1 cup sweetened condensed milk
14 cup strongly-brewed coffee
4 oz. dark chocolate, finely chopped
34 cup all-purpose flour
14 cup almond flour
1 tbsp. instant espresso powder
1 tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
12 tsp. kosher salt
1 cup whole milk
2 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted and cooled, plus more for greasing
3 large eggs, separated
Chopped toasted almonds, to garnish

Instructions

In a small saucepan, bring the sweetened condensed milk and coffee to a boil, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat, add the chocolate, and let stand for 2 minutes. Whisk the mocha sauce until smooth and keep warm.
In a large bowl, whisk both flours with the espresso powder, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In another bowl, whisk the milk with the butter and egg yolks until smooth. Pour over the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. In a medium bowl, whisk the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Scrape the egg whites into the batter and fold until evenly combined.
Heat a waffle iron. Using a pastry brush, lightly grease the waffle iron and then spread 13 cup of the batter over three-quarters of the surface of the iron. Close the iron and cook until the waffle is brown and crisp, 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer the waffle to a plate and repeat cooking the remaining waffles, brushing the iron with butter between each batch.
Drizzle each waffle with some of the mocha sauce and garnish with almonds before serving. (http://www.saveur.com/espresso-waffles-with-mocha-sauce-recipe)

Difference Between Coffee and Espresso

latte-and-cappuccino

For most people who are lovers of caffeine, the line between coffee and espresso can be a bit fuzzy. Both are tasty, both have caffeine and both come from beans that smell delicious. But what makes them different? Let Port City Java help clarify this burning question!

The main difference between espresso and drip coffee is the preparation method used. There is no plant that grows espresso beans or roasting style that makes espresso beans. The beans that are used to make espresso can be a blend of different coffees or one specific type of coffee bean.

good espresso

In general, espresso is prepared using a much finer grind than what would be used to prepare drip coffee. These grinds are then tamped with 30-40 pounds of pressure into a portafilter basket so they are very compact. This prevents the water from blowing a hole into the grinds and making a poorly pulled shot. The time it takes for the hot water (nearly 200 degrees!) to run through the grinds should take around 15-20 seconds every time a single or double shot is pulled. Any longer or shorter amount of time will affect the way the shot looks and tastes.

There are three main parts to the espresso shot: The heart, which is the dark part at the bottom, the body, which is the middle part and the crema, which is the frothy top layer. After about 10 seconds, the shot will die and lose the distinct three parts. Not to mention it will taste so bad you’ll forget you need the caffeine in the first place.
