Illy’s Espresso Macaroons

I was at the beverage exhibition at KLCC Convention Centre recently and had a chance to taste a variety of illy coffee….. I am really into coffee as I enjoy the aroma and taste but I always feel that a cuppa a coffee must be accompanied with something, if not, it will be very boring and lonely……I am sure you will agree with me,…. am I right?

A piece of big chewy cookies is something I always dream off to accompany my coffee but not many places will store them except my own cookie jar……lol! I also notice that huge coffee places like starbucks or coffeebean do not provide any cookie when you order an expensive cup of coffee. I guess it is time they should. On the other hand, whenever I have my coffee at the 5* hotel in Kuala Lumpur I get to have a cookie, bravo.

Anyway…. I really adore illy coffee, and I am sure you know why and can be found at some many eateries in Kuala Lumpur. So I decided to use illy espresso coffee and add them into my macaroons. Oh! they are so lovely……as they can divorce their cuppa of coffee……funny? I had them with white chocolate ganache so that the aroma of the espresso will explodes in your mouth when you eat it.

Espresso macaroons are available for sale, please get in touch with us.

Love Sunny Yaw

    that’s a fantastic match. I think the white choc will go really well with the bitter sweet coffee taste. YUM!!!

    Coffee macaroons taste better less sweet and full of coffee aroma even better with chocolate ganache.
