Peppermint White Chocolate Coffee Recipe + Death Wish Coffee Gift Ideas
Death Wish Coffee is marketed as the world’s strongest coffee, and it’s fair trade + 100% organic. You can find it online or in many grocery stores – I ran across it in my local grocery store, to my excitement.
So is Death Wish Coffee strong?
Yessss! Death Wish Coffee sent me three boxes of Kcups – medium roast, dark roast, and espresso roast. My husband immediately broke into the dark roast and brewed himself a cup. His response: “This is really good. Normally I brew my coffee on ‘strong,’ but this is that strength without having to brew on strong. Meaning, I can still make it stronger!”
He then asked how long it would take me to buy more, haha. So that’s a glowing review from him.
Ideas for Gifting Death Wish Coffee
I mean, a bag of coffee in itself is a gift. A fun thing to do: buy a bunch of bags or Kcup boxes, and anonymously drop them on your friends’ doorsteps. Believe me, they’ll thank you.
But another favorite way to gift coffee is also super simple: print out a cute recipe card with a fun coffee drink, and attach it to the box with ribbon or a bow. Done and done!
Here’s my current go-to drink: a peppermint coffee with white chocolate foam on top. Holiday perfection for sure.
Peppermint White Chocolate Coffee
This is the way I make my coffee most mornings, when I’ve got a couple of minutes. I brew a cup (or 2) of coffee. I love using Death Wish Espresso Roast Coffee for this recipe, because the strength of it means it doesn’t get a watered-down taste.
Then I stir about a 1/2 tablespoon of peppermint coffee sauce into the coffee.
I use my cold foam maker to make foam to top my coffee. In the cold foam maker, I add about 1/2 cup of half-and-half or milk or cream; whatever’s on hand. Half-and-half makes the best foam in my maker; just experiment with yours. Squeeze a drizzle of white chocolate sauce in, and then press the lid on and push start.
Drizzle half of the foam on your coffee. Save the other half for a second coffee, or if you’ve got kids like me, your kids will probably beg for their own little cup of “calf-and-half.” Camden LOVES it, so I never have enough left for a second cup.
Add a candy cane or some crushed peppermint candy pieces to the coffee for a festive look. Plus, it melts into the coffee and adds an extra peppermint kick. Delish!
Here’s a handy little recipe card you can print off to include on the front of your coffee gift!
Okay, One Last Gift Idea
If you’ve got a coffee lover and you’re looking to give them a substantial gift, I recommend a Death Wish Coffee gift basket.
My favorite things to add to a Death Wish Coffee Gift Basket:
- Death Wish coffee (espresso roast, or their holiday trio)
- Death Wish Coffee mug
- cold foam machine
- white chocolate sauce or coffee syrups
- Death Wish Coffee mug warmer
- Death Wish Coffee thermal canteen
And anything else that might make their coffee drinking experience more exciting!
