WEEK NINE CHALLENGE: COFFEE

Coffee – it’s not just for breakfast anymore – it’s for **DOUBLE POINTS WEEK**as well. And thanks to the stimulatory effect of its main chemical – caffeine – coffee can also be found as a common accompaniment at many other daily meals.  According to the National Coffee Association, 54% of American adults drink coffee every day and 25% drink it occasionally.  As high as this number may seem, in terms of per capita consumption America ranks only 23rd in the world (Finland is #1 with 12kg per person).  Unfortunately, the statistics are unclear as to how many American adults cook with coffee, but it’s clear that not enough people do.  The rich and robust flavors of coffee are as excellent in savory dishes as they are in ice creams and tiramisu.  Hopefully we can give you a couple of ideas to build off of in order to add coffee to your cooking repertoire.  Which one of these dishes is going to be keeping you up all night: the Chipotle-Espresso Braised Short Ribs with Jalapeno-Cheddar Grits and Red Eye Gravy or the Kona Coffee Crusted Rack of Lamb with Sweet Fig Mustard and Kona Coffee Jus
