To get you in the mood we've gathered some coffee-infused culinary creations from coffee experts, Nespresso. So, you'll have enough inspo for a whole coffee-themed three course meal. Check out the recipes below and then watch the video to find your perfect Nespesso.



Fortissio Lungo Gravlax Salmon

This appetiser is a showstopper and is a cinch to put together. For the fullest flavour allow the salmon to marinade in the coffee, sugar, salt and lemons for 10 hours before serving. It'll really add a smoky kick!
