2. Espresso coffee and vanilla ice cream

Pairing is ultimately testing which combination is the one you like the most. Would you like a vanilla ice cream with coffee? This combination was born in Italy, but in Costa Rica they strive so that it has nothing to envy.

In that European country, this mixture is known as Affogato and it is a dessert for them, however, the preparation is the same as that we savor as Ticos. A good espresso accompanied with a portion of vanilla ice cream.

3. Cold Brew

The Cold Brew is a combination of coffee and nuts, whether they are walnuts, peanuts, almonds or cocoa beans. This mixture is perfect if you are talking about pairing your cold coffee, since it offers the possibility of enjoying the pure flavor of the bean, without neglecting the refreshing and natural option provided by its companions.

For its preparation, you must first know that it is totally different from traditional coffees that are made with hot water. In this, its extraction process is carried out using water at room temperature and a coarse grain, which can make this procedure last between 15 and 24 hours.
