I am addicted to coffee and I love eating Meringues so this is the perfect dessert and sweet treat for me.
And I’m guessing as you’re here it sounds pretty delicious to you too.
I’m a straight up Espresso kinda gal though I’ll happily drink a Lungo and a Cortado or Picollo on occasion but…
…anything beyond that becomes too much like a milk based drink than a coffee based one for me, I want to taste the dark, bitter, fruity goodness of the coffee.
How about you, do you have a preference?
Anyway, enough about my coffee addiction for now and let’s get onto this coffee meringues recipe…
Cooking Equipment That You’ll Need
