Get your festivity on by making the perfect and most deliciously electrifying Easter cocktail. It may be cute, but trust us when we say it's strong af.

 

You'll need: 

 ✧ 1 shot of Black Insomnia Espresso coffee

✧ 1.5 Oz Vodka

➣ Step 2: Carefully cut the ears off the chocolate bunny and discard, so the hollow inside is revealed. 

 

➣ Step 3: Now it's time to make the cocktail. Combine the espresso coffee, vodka, coffee liquor, cinnamon, and ice in a cocktail shaker.

 

➣ Step 4: Shake vigorously for 30 seconds until it feels ice cold. Then, strain it into a measuring glass that has a pouring lip.

 

➣ Step 5: Carefully pour the espresso martini into the hollowed out chocolate bunny and serve with festive garnishes.

The Pour Over Brewing Method

The pour over technique is one of the most convenient and straightforward ways to brew coffee. It’s been used commonly since the 1900's but recently gained popularity with the speciality coffee movement.

 

To brew up with the pour over method, simply pour hot water through coffee grounds in a pour over bag. These are individually sealed bags placed over your mug where the water will drain through the grounds creating a perfect serving of coffee. No need for grinders, filters, or presses. Simply pour hot water into the bag. The ultimate in convenience and great taste.

The French Press Brewing Method

The French Press is also known as a cafetiere or a coffee press. The machine consists of a cylinder shaped beaker with a plunger and creates a heavy and dense coffee. This method gains an advantage by allowing you to brew up according to your individual taste. The size and type of coffee grounds, the amount of time you steep the grounds, the temperature of water, and other factors can all be varied depending on your preferences. Using a French Press also retains more natural oils from the grounds, giving your coffee a finer taste. It is also small enough to be carried around if you're always on the go. It is recommended by most French Press users to buy whole beans and grind them yourself as it should not be grounded too finely with this technique.

The Nespresso Machine Brewing Method

One of the most popular and simple ways to brew up single-serve espresso coffee is with a Nespresso Machine. This machine is utilised to maximise the potential of each coffee capsule, producing a high quality, rich, flavourful, and smooth brew. It is by far one of the most convenient and efficient brewing methods for anyone with a fast-paced lifestyle. If you just can't wait for your morning brew, you'll get it almost instantly using this brewing method.

 

To brew up, simply place a mug beneath your Nespresso machine, insert your favourite coffee capsule, press and hold the brewing button, and let go once the perfect amount of coffee has been produced. It's that easy. 

 

We highly recommend using our Nespresso compatible coffee capsules which are completely plastic free, plant-based coffee, and 100% home compostable certified, allowing you to love your coffee, and the planet. These coffee capsules provide smooth yet strong caramel, hazelnut, and macadamia aromas. A luxurious robust dark chocolate flavour with a velvety body and crema. It is low in acidity and all-natural.
