Spark a little love & joy with Melitta Coffee

With Valentine’s Day coming this Friday I know it’ll be day of extra love, lots of coffee and chocolate. I’ll bake my husband brownies and make a good cup of coffee a la the pour method with our special little coffee bar featuring Melitta products then we’re going to go to Thermea Spa.  I’ll have Melitta Coffee Rubbed Slow Cooker Pork Sliders ready for him when we get back.


Melitta had sent me some really amazing new brews(and affordable!) just before Christmas that I never knew existed and I love Buzzworthy, I love a good dark roast and the Espresso makes for an excellent tasting espresso as I use that one the most for homemade cappuccinos and lattes.  I served it after Christmas dinner and guests were asking what kind of coffee I use, I kid you not my fellow coffee lovers.  I’ve even started making pour-overs which I’ve never done before.  It’s a new morning ritual that I love doing.  The house is warming up, it’s still dark outside and everyone is still asleep as I get the day started.  I absolutely love this “me-time”.  I rotate between coffee and tea and I enjoy both because it’s my quiet time.  I’m no hater. (hahaha)

The Signature Series Pour-Over™ brews handcrafted coffee in three simple steps:

  1. Place Pour-Over cone on top of the mug, insert Melitta cone coffee filter
  2. Scoop in your favourite fresh ground coffee to taste
  3. Pour hot water (just off the boil) into the cone, fully saturating all grounds

The Signature Series Pour-Over™ Coffeemaker is an elegant interpretation of the ORIGINAL Pour-Over™ Coffeemaker that their founder, Melitta Bentz, invented over 100 years ago.

And as I mentioned brownies before, I made these with Melitta coffee and they were super!

  1. 1/2 cup coconut oil
  2. 3/4 cups semi sweet chocolate chips 
  3. 1/2 cup cocoa powder 
  4. 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  5. 1/2 cup milk ( I used whole milk )
  6. 2 tablespoons Melitta brewed coffee (or hot water if you need to skip coffee)
  7. 1 cup all-purpose organic flour
  8. 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips 
  9. 1/4 tsp icing sugar to sprinkle for decoration (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. On the stove, gently heat the coconut oil, vanilla and chocolate chips until melted. 
  3. If making on the stove, turn the element off and stir in cocoa powder and sugar. Add milk and coffee (or water) and stir until well combined. Stir in flour and walnuts. Pour into a greased 8″ square pan and sprinkle with mini chips. Bake 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center and it comes out nice and smooth.

So, my friends, we’ll be kicking the weekend off with coffee and chocolate made with love.  What are your plans for V-Day? In the meantime, we’ve put a great giveaway together.  Giveaway is Canadian Only, excl. Quebec. 18+ yrs to enter, see Rules & Regulations.  Contest ends, Feb.21.2020
