3 ways to get creative with coffee this Christmas



22 sleeps to go until Christmas Day! According to JURA Australia, now is the time to start meal prepping, sharing a cocktail amongst friends, and even getting creative with homemade gifts - all featuring coffee from their award-winning S8.

JURA Australia’s top 3 ways to use coffee this year include:
1. Homemade gifts: Make mum a coffee scrub by simply mixing,  1 JURA espresso, 2 tbsp ground coffee, 1 tbsp brown sugar, 1 tbsp coconut oil and 1 tbsp desiccated coconut. Or, be adventurous and create coffee-infused homemade candles, other than the coffee grounds you’ll need, wax, a wick, a container and a skewer.

2. New Christmas cocktail: The team at @gastrology.co have created their new JURA espresso mudslide cocktail just in time for the festive season. All you need is 2 shots of JURA espresso, 2 shots Irish cream, 3 shots of vodka and ice. Firstly, mix the ice, cooled espresso, Irish cream and vodka and shake for 10 seconds and pour into glasses, then top with coffee ice cream. Enjoy!

3. Cooking with coffee: @lisaeatworld’s latest coffee-infused recipe is the Coffee Balsamic Vinaigrette. The ingredients include 2 tbsp brewed JURA coffee (cooled), 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar, 1 tbsp Dijon mustard, 1 tsp honey, 1/2 shallot, minced and 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil. Simply whisk together all the ingredients in a small bowl and season with salt and add more oil and honey to balance according to taste.
