Butterscotch Pudding Coffee with Cinnamon

December 2, 2012

Winter is coming.

And isn’t coffee all the better when it’s not only doing the water dance with your tastebuds, but providing you with life-saving warmth? It’s even better with rich, creamy, buttery additions, which can help provide that extra layer of blubber to protect against the biting cold and/or threats from beyond the Wall.

Looking through my chambers for such an addition, I came across some butterscotch pudding that had, sadly, expired several months ago. Good thing a true coffee warrior realizes that minor concerns such as “expiry dates” are all in the mind. Even though the brown butterscotch powder had, curiously, turned pink:

No matter! Coffee is all about revival, resurrecting expired ingredients like fearsome and delicious wights.

I used this coffee from Idealbrew.co . They were kind enough to send me a free sample of their service, which sends three coffee samples from three different roasters, every month, for about $10 per month. Delivered right to your door, so you don’t have to brave the winter air to acquire it. They didn’t even ask me to plug them, but check it out anyway.

I added cream and the bepinkened pudding powder to a drinking receptacle, then stirred it with a staff of cinnamon. It immediately began to regain its colour.

The end result was a elixir that was thick and creamy, with a hint of the warm spice of cinnamon. I could feel my arteries toughening up, bracing themselves for the coming winter. Mission accomplished.

Stay thirsty my friends, and may the odds be ever in your favour, and a Lannister always pays his debts. (?)

    I really find your blog both funny and mad. Thanks for the interesting ideas on what to do with my coffee. Anyways, if you ever went to Brisbane, Australia, visit our coffee shop named the Local Bean. We’ll see if you can put weird things in our coffees there.

    This blog is officially my new favorite thing. You had me with the title but then you won my heart with the multiple references in one closing line. Kudos.
