This thread has some good info. Anyone else have any more? We've got a coffee pairing dinner coming up and I'd like to hear some people's experiences. I was thinking of doing 4 coffees (Africa, Central and South America and Indonesia) using 3 or 4 different brewing methods to pair with the different courses. We'll cup and taste the food before the event but I'm wondering if pairing an earthy coffee with, say, beets would be a good match or would it be better to pair a clean, snappy coffee with something earthy. I'm thinking the latter. I'm super excited about the event and would just like to revive a discussion here. Thanks guys!
As long as the food does not overpower the flavor of the coffee, then it's good! I usually prefer sweet snacks and unsweetened coffee as they complement each other.
