Valentine Coffee & Suzy’s Cheesecake Pairings

January 13, 2016 / Category: Cheesecake Pairing

After a delicious meal with friends and family, a warm cup of coffee can really hit the spot. But, enjoying that cup of coffee with a slice of perfectly paired cheesecake can truly be the perfect ending to a perfect night. Coffee has a few distinct flavors that pair perfectly with our cheesecakes, like toffee, nuts, caramel, cocoa and mocha.

Suzy's Cheesecake - New York Style CheesecakeWe reached out to one of our favorite local coffee roasters, Valentine Coffee Roasters, for a few choice pairings. Here are a few of the delectable ideas they came back to us with:

New York Style Cheesecake
Valentine Coffee – Bali Blue Moon
The richness and accompanying dairy notes of Suzy’s classic New York style┬ácheesecake calls out for a bold, dark chocolate flavor profile, typically associated with a cup of┬ásingle bean origin. Bali Blue Moon’s sweet, lingering finish of brandied cherry compounds completes the experience as might a heady fruit compote.


Chocolate Caramel PecanSuzy's Cheesecake - Chocolate Caramel Pecan Cheesecake

Valentine Coffee – Brazil Mogiana
The two similarities in flavor profile: Chocolate, Caramel, Pecans would harmoniously pair this cheesecake with Valentine’s Brazil Mogiana coffee. Imagine the sweet, decadent texture of a bite of cheesecake melting away on your pallet with a sip of the same intense flavors. It would immediate invite a second and third bite and sip.
