French Press Coffee Tray With Chocolate & Whipped Cream Toppings

When one goes to a fancy schmancy place, one feels fancy schmancy… that is, unless one doesn’t realize the appropriate attire for the Nutcracker at the Pacific Northwest Ballet is semi-formal and one arrives in jeans. Then one does not feel so fancy shmancy. But, that is a story for another day. Or, you know, never.


One such fancy shmancy restaurant I’ve enjoyed serves their coffee with cream, and sugar… and chocolate, and white chocolate, and (as I like to call it) whoop cream.

For a girl who has always enjoyed her cheap, bitter coffee with a dose of hot water and her pricey, bold coffee black, I was overjoyed at the new, fanciful options.


Shaved semi-sweet or Belgian chocolate .


Chocolate Striped Mikado Sticks. You know, just because you can.


Glorious whoop cream enhanced with a little powdered sugar and almond emulsion. Or, if you prefer, vanilla . Or maple. Or mint. Brunch for a crowd? Offer some of each.

White chocolate curls? Yes, please!

Fancy shmancy places eat your heart out.


If anyone needs me, I’ll be right here. Feeling fancy shmancy. In my jeans.
