3 coffee recipes made with Krups Intuition

I like coffee and I like intuitive devices that do their job, so it was & # 8222a match made in heaven & # 8221 between me and Krups Intuition from the beginning!

The year that changed so much, one thing remained unchanged: my passion for coffee! I obviously miss the coffee outings, the escapades to discover new coffee shops, in Bucharest, but also in other lands & # 8230

But I made a discovery that alleviated the longing for walks and coffee in the city. In fact, he successfully replaced them! It's about the automatic espresso machine Krups Intuition.

I don't have patience in general and I don't want to spend my free time studying user guides, so it was "love at first use" with Krups Intuition. Because its use is really intuitive & # 8230 no button or non-essential command, nothing complicated, all processes "in sight".

Restricted, espresso, cappuccino, milk or tea?

And the coffee made, whether it was a restricted or espresso short after a meal, for digestion, a cappuccino or a latte for an energizing treat, instead of dessert, was absolutely delicious, at the level and with the aroma of the one enjoyed in my favorite cafes. Obviously, I used the freshly roasted specialty coffee that they also use.

I also liked the idea of ​​replacing several devices with one, compact and very good looking! Krups Intuition can prepare coffee-based drinks, longer or shorter, with milk, thanks to the special nozzle that gives you the fluffiest and velvety milk foam. Of course, it can be used to quickly prepare teas.

And that's how a precious place was created in the kitchen. Which I will handle quickly, I know for sure, but for now I'm glad I have my favorite hot drinks.

Coming back to Krups Intuition, I took full advantage of the holidays, experimenting at home with coffee recipes. I had "tested" some of them in a professional environment, ie in cafes or other places, prepared by a real barista.

But I am also very happy with the results obtained at home! So here are the 3 coffee recipes prepared with Krups Intuition, in 2 strokes and 3 movements & # 8230 seriously, the pictures took me longer than preparing the drinks.

Irish cappuccino

Ingredient: 1 espresso shot, 130 ml milk, 14 ml condensed milk with Irish Cream flavor

Preparation: Prepare espresso at Krups Intuition - you don't have much to do, just open the appliance, select the Espresso option, the amount of water (40, 50 or 60 ml), the coffee intensity (I set it to maximum from the beginning ) and Start!

Foam the milk, including condensed milk. It is as simple an operation as making any drink at Krups Intuition. At the end, the milk foam is added over the espresso, and for a delicious final touch, I sprinkled a little flavored hot chocolate powder, but you can fill it with chocolate flakes, almonds, pieces of soft meringues.

For a more sophisticated version, with alcohol, you can replace condensed milk with 10 ml of Irish Cream.

White chocolate mocha

Ingredient: 1 long, 130 ml milk, 4-6 cubes of white chocolate

Preparation: Bake at Krups Intuition, directly over the white chocolate cubes, to melt them. Again, very simple: select the Long Coffee option, the amount of water, the coffee intensity (if not already set) and Start!

Froth the milk and add it over the coffee. At this point, the chocolate is already melted and contributes to the aroma of the coffee.

Tiramisu espresso martini

Ingredient: 1 shot espresso, 15 ml vodka, 30 ml liqueur tiramisu

Preparation: Mix well in an espresso shaker, vodka, liqueur and 4 ice cubes. Strain and pour into a martini glass. Decorate with 2 coffee beans.

There are a variety of options for this coffee cocktail. You can use a classic coffee liqueur (Kahlua) or different variations (cappuccino liqueur, latte macchiato liqueur & # 8230)

How to store coffee and tea: only in places without light!

Storing coffee or tea - this can't be that complicated! Of course this is true, but here too some details must be observed. This way you make sure that the hot drinks will have a flavor when they are prepared.

Coffee: dark and dry places

Coffee is definitely a popular drink in Romania. Many people invest to enjoy a good coffee and buy more and more high-performance coffee espresso, coffee capsules with different flavors or premium coffee brought from Brazil. However, one point must not be forgotten: how to store coffee correctly. Ground coffee and coffee beans they lose their aroma over time. Therefore, the ground version must be consumed within two weeks after the packaging has been opened, and the grain retains its aroma for about two months.

Coffee should be stored in spaces as protected as possible from the influence of the external environment: light, humidity, excessive heat. Dark, dry and cool - these are the three basic requirements that the place where you store coffee must meet. Two conditions are met in the refrigerator, but it is not dry and therefore not a suitable place. You will most likely find an ideal place in the pantry or closet.

The material of the container in which you store the coffee is also very important. It does not have to have its own smell and, therefore, they are ideal ceramic jars with watertight lids.

Special containers for tea

The shelf life of tea depends on its type. Green and black teas can be stored for up to three years, while exotic fruit-flavored teas are usually stored for 1-2 years.

uses metal boxes or jars of glass, ceramic or cherry wood. It is recommended that the tea has as little contact with oxygen as possible so as not to continue its oxidation process, so the closure of the container must be tight.

As with coffee, store tea in places away from light and cool, to make sure you have a quality product for a long time. The container in which you keep the tea is indicated to be dark in color, not to allow light to pass through. Do not leave tea in damp places. Once the tea leaves absorb water, they will lose their flavor.

Tea must protected from strong odors. Do not store tea with other spices, spices, because tea leaves will absorb odors.


  • 200 ml whipped cream (over 30% fat)
  • 150 g household chocolate (52% cocoa)
  • a tablespoon of instant coffee (ness)

Heat the whipped cream until it boils, it should not boil. Break the chocolate into pieces or chop it, put it over the hot cream and add the ness.

Leave it for 2-3 minutes, then mix until it is well blended.

A COFFEE, PLEASE / Normal or organic coffee?

Today we propose you to close your eyes and land together across the ocean, in Mexico and the United States of America. We can confirm what I just suspected so far, & # 8230 there, coffee is drunk long, with milk, ice, sweet or very sweet. In the southern part of the continent (Latin America), the classic sugar has been replaced by piloncillo or kahlua (see below). In addition, coffee is considered a dessert whatever the time of day, and a business ends with a glass of alcohol, not a coffee. However, coffee serving habits do not differ much from those in Europe.

Coffee is a beautiful and complex creature! It has a certain importance in the life of every person, and in recent years, the way we grow, fry, buy and consume has changed a lot. I've never had better coffee! I like to receive and pamper my guests, that's why I have a real arsenal of coffee and coffee machines at home.

If you didn't know & # 8230 Bio, eco or organic means the same thing, only the areas where the term is used are different. In Romania, there is only one logo that regulates and certifies organic products, it has the shape of a circle, inside which are the letters "AE", the acronyms for organic farming.

If we arrive in Mexico, we have to ask for / taste caffe de olla

Anda Ștefănescu has been living in Mexico for 11 years, but she also often travels to the USA. He tells us that in all the cities and communities where he has lived so far, coffee is definitely the start-up of the day. The best known type of coffee, "caffe de olla" actually refers to a coffee made from a kettle (olla means pot), only that the container is made of clay. In essence, this coffee is boiled and served with piloncillo, a cane sugar, known in most other parts of Latin America as the panela, and on top of it, necessarily put cinnamon.

Other coffees, called Mexican, seem to be just recipes for Irish coffee, in which, instead of whiskey, tequila is put. More recently, some people add mezcal, a smoked alcoholic beverage, but also a little Kahlua, a sweet and delicious Mexican liqueur.

Coffee, says Anda, was brought to Mexico in the late 1700s from Cuba and the Dominican Republic, and coffee is now grown in 12 Mexican states. Most are located in the southern part of the country, where the climate is more pleasant and the delicate arabica plants thrive, the most important quantities being obtained in Oaxaca and Chiapas.

Due to its proximity to the USA, Mexico was an easy choice for investors who wanted to get involved in such crops, since the 90s, and soon this country became the world leader in organic coffee production.

In the US, in some areas, coffee is as important as the subway network

In America, the most popular types of coffee and recipes come from Seattle, San Francisco and Portland, and without question, New York, mainly due to the climate in these areas.

Everyone, says Anda Ștefănescu, seems to have a certain level of dependence on this energizer, to which is added a special level of urgency when you live in a city like New York, where the simple fact of leaving the apartment, directly in the tumult of pedestrian traffic, requires a "blow" of caffeine.

Coffee is as vital to the city's capacity as the subway system, a fuel that keeps that city's engine running.

Lower Manhattan, the coffee district

A cup of coffee is handy wherever you are in New York. "The city that never sleeps!", Is an excellent slogan for a place that prides itself on the variety, quality and accessibility of coffee. Coffee has been an accessory since the city was founded, although the estate really began to flourish in the late 18th century in Lower Manhattan. Coffee culture means a lot to New Yorkers.

For some people, cafes offer them a place to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the city. They have a minute to relax, to reflect on their birthday or simply to live the moment. They might be waiting for friends for a date or even going on a first date.

Others love to work from the cafe, whether I'm writing a novel or just taking a break on the way to work. Coffee trolleys are available for those who never have the opportunity to slow down. No matter what the coffee culture in New York means, there is an excellent range of options in Manhattan.

Some Americans drink their coffee in the car

In California, life is more relaxed, offices and businesses open after 10 a.m., and people drink their coffee from a large glass (mug) throughout the day, which is either bought from Starbucks or home-made. And, as the climate of Southern California is one of the most pleasant in the Northern Hemisphere, there is a preference especially for Iced Coffee. The exaggerated hours spent in traffic are another reason why Californians will always have a cup of coffee in the car.

They are not as picky as New Yorkers in terms of preparation. In Texas, the coffee revolution is still in its infancy. Here, most people drink coffee at home or buy from fast food. In cities like Austin or San Antonio, all sorts of coffee shops have started to appear, but this only happens because the distances traveled are long. Rarely do people meet just to have a coffee.

It matters who and where you drink coffee!

Anda concludes with information that is good to remember & # 8230 the best coffee she drank was in Peru, and in second place in an imaginary top, Turkey would put. Why? Recognize that the taste of coffee is important, but even more important is the experience itself, the secret being actually who you drink coffee with? He adds that in both countries people are natural, fascinating and warm, in addition their culture makes you feel at home and always in the spotlight.

Returning to organic coffee, it seems that choosing an organic coffee is no longer a fad or just a fad. In addition to being grown, processed and transported in special conditions, it also offers many extra vitamins and nutrients, and for those who want to live truly healthy, there are also decaffeinated variants, which already successfully replace unhealthy snacks between meals.
