Will definitely make again. Use decent coffee. I ground up my own coffee beans and substituted brown sugar for coconut sugar. Instead of parsley and shallot, I used baby spinach and red onion for the salad. I also added toasted chopped Brazil nuts and danish feta. Yum!

So delicious and SO easy. Would be nice with a simple rocket salad and some roast potatoes.
