Deep Fried Coffee: A Very Disturbing Discovery

Deep fried cof­fee. Yes, it’s a thing, and cof­fee con­nois­seur James Hoff­mann decid­ed to give it a go. How did it turn out? We won’t spoil it for you–other than to say, don’t be sur­prised if deep fried cof­fee makes its way into a future edi­tion of Hoff­man­n’s book, The World Atlas of Cof­fee.

    Thank you, This was love­ly to watch!
    I am always inter­est­ed in food and love cof­fee. At the moment I am “camp­ing” in cold weath­er fol­low­ing quite some adven­tur­ous delays in a house pur­chase — and the one thing I look for­ward to is my break­fast cup of cof­fee! Step­ping out of the warmth of the duvet is hard and your video made me laugh and spurred me on this morn­ing!
    Keep exper­i­ment­ing and shar­ing!
