Foods That Pair Well With Coffee

As nice as it would be to survive solely on coffee for the rest of our lives, the reality of human beings is that, well, we also have to eat to live. Fortunately, our delicious gourmet coffee beans actually pair quite well with a number of different foods. Given the relative acidity of coffee, you’re doing your stomach a favor by pairing that latte with a scone or a breakfast sandwich. And let’s not forget about coffee’s powerful yet wonderful ability to accelerate the digestion process…

Beignets and Coffee

This is a true match made in heaven - or coffee heaven, if there is such a thing. If you’re not sure what a beignet is, then you’ve probably never visited New Orleans. This deep-fried choux pastry is a longtime classic, and no one does it better than the famous Cafe Du Monde in NOLA. They say you learn something new every day, so check this out: “beignet” is French for “fritter” or “doughnut”, so go ahead and (attempt to) impress your friends with that one.

The Classic Bacon, Egg and Cheese Sandwich

It’s got bacon. It’s got eggs. It’s got cheese. Oh, and did we mention that it has bacon? What else could you really want in your breakfast experience? It’s almost a crime not to order a breakfast sandwich with your morning coffee because the two pair so well together. Of course, you can also swap the bacon out for sausage, ham, or another breakfast protein option, but where’s the fun in that? Bonus points if you’re in New York City and you order a coffee and breakfast sandwich from a no-nonsense standalone sidewalk food cart.

The Stroopwafel

Ever-popular in the Netherlands, stroopwafels pair extremely well with your favorite gourmet coffee blends. For those not in the know, stroopwafels are essentially two thin layers of baked dough with a caramel-like syrup in the middle. While stroopwafels are satisfying to eat on their own, dipping them into your piping hot cup of coffee is the true way to go.

Bagels and Cream Cheese

The sweet yet savory notes of cream cheese on a toasted bagel go very well with black coffee and specialty coffees alike. Really, is there a better way to start work on a cold and sleepy Tuesday morning? Bagels, cream cheese and coffee are nourishing for the stomach and the mind. Besides, working on an empty stomach is no fun, and no one likes dealing with a “hangry” coworker.

Granola and Yogurt

Perhaps some of the previous food combinations we’ve mentioned aren’t exactly the healthiest, but yogurt and granola is a reliable, tried-and-true healthy breakfast option. Packed with protein, whole grains and fiber, combining coffee with granola and yogurt is a surefire way to keep your energy levels up and power your way to lunchtime. If you’re eating fruit-flavored granola or yogurt, a sweeter gourmet coffee blend makes a nice flavor combination.

Avocado Toast

Is it possible to read “avocado toast” without thinking “those dang millennials and their silly avocado toast!”? Probably not, but hey, those dang millennials must be onto something. Packed with healthy fats and a satisfying consistency, avocado also a great food to balance out the acidity of coffee. If you’re sticking to black coffee, pairing it with a slice or two of avocado toast is a great choice.
