This month's theme for Choclette and Chele's We Should Cocoa challenge is coffee and it's being hosted by Lucy from The Kitchen Maid. I like coffee and of course like many people I love chocolate so for me this is a perfect combination. I don't drink a huge amount of coffee but I do need my morning fix when I get to my office. I have a small purple cafetiere on my desk at uni with a pack of coffee next to it because if I'm going to drink coffee I like to have the good stuff. However I rarely drink coffee at home anymore. I have an espresso pot that I bought about 8 years ago when I developed a love for proper coffee after working as a barista/waitress during my gap year and I used to make coffee in it on a
daily basis. Nowadays I don't tend to fancy coffee as often. I brewed up a pot for this cake but as the recipe only required a tablespoon of strong coffee and I was baking at around 10pm I put the rest of the coffee in a mug in the fridge and had iced coffee the next day, otherwise I would have been awake all night.
