"I love adding coffee to main dishes as it instantly adds a new flavor dimension and transports me to a place where coffee is in charge of my life and makes me feel safe. The Raspberry Almond coffee is so versatile and lends itself easily to desserts and main dishes alike. In this pulled chicken dish the raspberry coffee, fresh raspberries and dark chocolate transform simple pulled chicken into something pretty amazing."
