TGIF: Coffee Lovin' Edition


Today I kind of literally have a treat for you. A treat in the form of a guest post about something that makes me happy: coffee! And a treat in the form of a yummy coffee recipe from the Coffee Lovin' Mom herself!

Amy is a sweetie from the Chicago area who is passionate about coffee. Every Friday she hosts Coffee Chronicles where she, with the help of former Starbucks store manager, the robot mommy, highlights all things yummy about coffee. And I'm so happy Amy agreed to bring the Coffee Chronicles to my place for this week's...

So excited to be able to bring our usual Friday coffee chronicles to Just Jennifer!  Besides that, it's my blogoversary today (2 years) and I'm taking the day off!


There was one drink we tried back when we did The Coffee Party back in December that was never featured because sadly it got lost in the vault.  So today I dug it out for Jennifer as she requested a coffee recipe for her coffee lovin' readers. I hope you all enjoy - this was really an easy recipe and of course the coffee depends on your taste.  We used espresso, leaving out the orange peel.  I never got the orange chocolate attraction in the first place, some people love it so try it both ways.  With coffee it never hurts to experiment....

Cafe Borgia (hot)

1/2 cups strong Italian coffee
1/2 cups hot chocolate
Whipped cream
Mix coffee and hot chocolate
Top with whipped cream and orange peel


Thanks for having me Jen!!

Mmmm... Easy-peasy, right? I actually mix coffee and hot chocolate all the time and call it a "homemade mocha"!

Thanks for sharing, Amy!

Coffee is something that makes me HAPPY, but what makes YOU happy?

  1. Yummy!!! I was in highschool when I discovered the joys of combining hot chocolate with coffee (which I did not drink at the time . . . oh how things change). Hum, now I wonder if there is any hot chocolate here at work so that I can make something like this . . . off to check!

  6. Ohhhhh....you know you had me at coffee :)

    and the only thing better than coffee, is coffee and chocolate together. I think the orange sounds like a nice twist - will definitely have to try this!
