Tiramisu and Coffee Recipes

Now instead of having to go buy that six-dollar slice of tiramisu cake from your local Italian restaurant, you can make tiramisu from your kitchen at a fraction of a cost with even better ingredients from the tiramisu recipe. This is a highly recommended tiramisu recipe by Valerie Bertinelli who is a Food Network Star. 



1 1/4 cups brewed espresso coffee

1/3 cup coffee liqueur 

1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar 

1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon dry Marsala 

16 ounces mascarpone 

2 cups heavy cream 

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 

About 40 crisp ladyfinger cookies (12 ounces) 

Unsweetened cocoa powder, for dusting 


  1. Combine the espresso, coffee liqueur, 2 tablespoons sugar, 1/4 cup Marsala and 1/4 cup water in a medium bowl and whisk until the sugar dissolves.
  2. Beat the mascarpone in a bowl to loosen it up, then set aside.
  3. Beat the cream, vanilla, remaining 1/4 cup sugar and remaining tablespoon Marsala together in a clean bowl with an electric mixer until it just holds stiff peaks. Fold the mascarpone into the whipped cream mixture.
  4. Working one at a time, briefly dunk half of the ladyfingers in the espresso mixture and use them to line the bottom of a 9-by-13-inch baking dish, breaking or trimming the cookies as necessary. Spread half of the mascarpone mixture evenly on top. Dunk and arrange the remaining ladyfingers on top of the mascarpone, then spread with the remaining mascarpone.
  5. Cover the tiramisu and refrigerate until the ladyfingers have softened and the flavors have blended, at least 5 hours and preferably overnight. Dust with cocoa powder before serving.


Coffee is the second largest commodity in the world behind oil. Presently, we have chefs that use our coffee and tea in ice cream, sorbets, chocolates and even in rubs when cooking meats, thank you Chef Sean Andrade for this delicious rub recipe.  Take a closer look at our blog on the history of tea (which is noticeably quite similar to the history of coffee). The blog Tea Throughout Time explains the origins of both coffee and tea and its journeys along the Silk Road in the 1400’s to it being delivered to your front door in 2019. The changes in the consumption of coffee and tea continue to this day.

For instance, you might be used to having coffee in your ice cream or a classic tiramisu, but did you know coffee uses expand to an even broader palate?  In our blog 4 Energy Bites with Coffee,we take a look at four different delicious energy bite recipes.  These coffee packed snacks will get your day going.  Incorporating oats and rich nutty flavors these caffeinated treats work perfectly for a person on a busy schedule, whether you are trying to get to work or just getting ready to go for a run. If you’re like me sometimes it's difficult to make a full breakfast before work or school, but these energy bites are easy to make and store well in the fridge. I make a large batch for the entire week and have a ready to go as a healthy snack. Coffee and its caffeine properties mix with the protein make the energy bites a mini-meal or a precursor to a bigger meal to follow. 

If the energy bites don’t fuel you with enough caffeine add a delicious cup of Weaver’s Coffee to go along with your protein-filled snack. If you’re looking for a hardier meal you could try incorporating coffee grounds into a dry rub at your next family barbecue. The distinct flavor of coffee can be brought out, expanded upon, and rediscovered through the various forms in the kitchen or on the grill. Next time you want to change up your cooking with a little more flavor try using Weaver’s Coffee or Weaver's Tea in your cooking.
