Want to make a special cake out of cranberry biscuits? That’s possible with this delicious recipe from vera thuis. Vera is zero waste chef who makes the most unique recipes. These buttercream biscuits, made with our Yirgacheffe cold drip coffee can be considered real art and are quite easy to make! Yirgacheffe is an unwashed coffee, with a portion of the flesh remaining around the bean while drying. This gives the coffee a very pronounced fruity character. These buttercream biscuits are perfect as desert or with coffee (our Batavia Dutch Coffee that is!). A true treat for when having visitors over or during a special occasion.
