Feb 08, 2019 Obiaks
Coffee makes it possible to get out of bed, cupcakes make it worthwhile.
Coffee is not a substitute for energy, energy is a substitute for coffee. Coffee is let's face it far more reliable than men. Everyone knows how important coffee is to kick start our day. Being a coffee lover I have tried all kinds of coffees from all across the world be it a latte, espresso, cappuccino, ice blended, white chocolate, black coffee but the Cuban coffee has my heart. It is served in a small cup and is two times stronger than the American coffee. The coffee is brewed the same way and sweetened with sugar along with several spoons of milk.
Coffee for the west is like tea for the east. Everyone needs coffee to keep them moving. People hang out and order coffee. People are on the go they order coffee. People stay in and make coffee. With coffee comes countless eatables that go well in the taste. Coffee is a delicious drink to sip along with food. Here are a few deadly combos
    Fruits with stones; plum, apricot, peaches, avocado etc. either fresh or used in baked products
    Chocolates; white, black Belgium, Swiss etc.
    Cookies; chocolate chip and raisin oatmeal cookies are most famous
    Biscotti; almond biscotti are a classic whereas chocolate, cherry, and other flavors are also worth trying
    Chocolate dipped fruits especially cherries are considered a great treat with coffee
    Chocolate fudge brownies
    Fruit tarts taste exceptional with dark roasted Belgium coffee
    Cinnamon Buns
    Cakes; chocolate and coffee flavors are classic other flavors to try are buttercream, orange, carrot, vanilla, red velvet etc.
    Scones; commonly paired with tea are not very popular with coffees but they taste great either they are unflavored or fruit scones or maple raisin scones.
    Coffee bread
    Muffins; blueberry, classic, chocolate chunky etc.
    Crepes; apart from the sweet Nutella or berry crepes, savory crepes with meat, cheese, herbs, and vegetables are mind-blowing when paired with coffee
    Eggs and sausages
    Toasts; grainy treats like toasts and cereals also pair well with coffee

And many other possible options that must have been missing from the list. But of all the combinations there is a very deadly combo and that would be coffee with muffins.
Though every muffin in the world is perfect if you have a sweet tooth. And though it is the safest and the perfect combination to have, it might get tricky sometimes to decide which muffin to pair up with which coffee. As there are as many flavors of muffins as there are of coffee. So we bring you some of the best pairs tried and tested in the world.

The perfect pairings
    Latte with an orange and dark chocolate cupcake
    Espresso with pistachio-flavored cupcake
    Chocolate cupcake goes well with black coffee
    The classic blueberry cupcake with a macchiato
    Cappuccino tastes best with a double chocolate cupcake
    Americano and red velvet cupcakes go hand in hand
    Latte also pairs best with black forest
    Frappe can be enjoyed with a walnut cupcake
