Coffee & Cheesecake

The combination of a slice of cheesecake with a steaming hot cup of your favourite coffee is quite delightful. People all over the world have benefited from this perfect match. However, how did this apparently ideal combination come to be?
I think we just start by discussing the flavours, it would seem that cheesecake’s creamy, decadent texture is enhanced by the strong, rich flavour of coffee. Also, the sweetness of the cheesecake and the bitterness of the coffee combine to create a deliciously harmonious balance, entices the palate and gets our taste buds doing the happy dance.
But it’s not just about the tastes. Coffee and cheesecake come from similar cultural backgrounds. For centuries, coffee has been a widely consumed beverage in numerous cultures, coming in a range of forms and flavours. In contrast, cheesecake has a long and distinguished history that dates back to the times of ancient Greece and Rome.
Furthermore, there seems to be a global movement among people to enjoy cheesecake with coffee. There are more and more bakeries and cafes serving these two treats side by side. Specialty coffee shops often double as cheesecake restaurants, allowing customers to satiate both their caffeine fix and sweet tooth desires.
With the above in mind, enjoying cheesecake and coffee together seems to be two things that were designed to be together, forever. Whether it’s a cherry cheesecake paired with a smooth latte or a passion fruit cheesecake paired with a strong espresso, it certainly is a delightful way to combine the best of both worlds.
The next time you’re looking for the perfect treat, consider treating yourself to a cup of your favourite coffee and a slice of your favourite cheesecake. You can be sure that this blend will satisfy your cravings and make you happy.
