Re: Coffee... Now with mushrooms (?!?)

OK. We've each sipped some of this wild porcini, Pero, French Market java and here are our findings:

 

"Oooh, smells like mushrooms!"

 

"Tastes like a good French press. I can't taste the nutmeg or cinnamon, but the dried porcini flavor is there."

 

"Good stuff! I want more."

 

"Meh, just OK. Nothing really great."

 

Next time I'll break up the porcini a bit more, for I think an even stronger mushroom flavor might wow our doubter. (French press coffee isn't brewed Mr Coffee style, see, the coffee ingredients are put into the bottom of the pot, then nearly-boiling water is added, and the lid placed on the pot, the mixture allowed to brew a few minutes, and then the plunger pressed down. Smaller mushroom pieces will likely release more flavor in that scenario.)

 

So there you have it. Mushrooms add nice aroma and flavor to coffee.

 

Mad science. Smiley Happy

Heads up: I have a crew here this morning and have been barred from my kitchen, but have just managed to get started on the French press with porcini mushroom coffee. I added 6 half inch chunks of dried porcini, a bit of fresh ground nutmeg, a dash of cinnamon, some Pero and some French Market with chicory. This should result in a full bodied, rich and earthy brew.

 

We'll likely try it without sugar but with a bit of 1% milk ... I'll let you know what we all think. (This may result in me being barred from the kitchen all weekend ... Smiley Wink )

Oh yum, love mushrooms. That looks so yummy!  


I'll let you know how it goes. I might try some (the homemade version at least) this week. Say, Thursday.

@DaveMcK Yum! That looks delectable! Can you FAX one of those? (The calorie-free ediition Smiley Happy)

 

Yeah, I'm not certain imma gonna be able to tell you guys mushroom coffee is da bomb, but I'm going to work up my moxie and try a wee spot of wild porcini French press. One of these days. Not today. Right now the snow-laden mountains are whispering sweet nothings involving snowshoes...

@Epster I will save my mushrooms for things like the shrimp and mushroom stir fry I had last night. Love them on salads or with sautéed onions on my steak. Oh yes, on my pizza! Than there is Grilled Portobello Mushrooms with Tomatoes and Fresh Mozzarella.

This just crossed my Twitter feed. The comment is from a wild food chef. I don't think I'll be trying this particular mushroom coffee, though I might slip a piece of dried porcini into the next pot of French press. What do you guys think?
