Written by Debra C. Argen   
Java Love Coffee roasting Co.
We love excellent quality coffee to start our day, an espresso or iced coffee in the afternoon, as well as used in cocktail and culinary recipes. We recently "discovered" Java Love Coffee Roasting Co., and while new to us, they celebrated their 10-year anniversary on May 1, 2021. With their widely diverse selection of high-quality coffees, you can break out from your usual coffee routine and take your palate on a trip around the world with their exotic coffees from Brazil, Columbia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Ethiopia, Papua New Guinea, and Sumatra, as well as enjoy one of their domestic blends. In addition to their coffee, they also carry an extensive line of teas available online and at their 4 locations in New York and New Jersey. 

 

Java Love Coffee - Brazil Cerrado

Coffee, good quality coffee is the element of dreams, and was the basis for the Java Love Coffee Roasting Co. founded in Bethel, New York in May 2011 by Kristine-Ellis Petrik and Jodie Dawson. Ten years later their dream has now expanded to include 4 stores: 2 locations in New York (Suffern and White Lake), and 2 locations in New Jersey (Upper Montclair and Montclair Center).  Combined with a strong passion for coffees that "are either organically and/or sustainably farmed, fair trade and/or rainforest alliance certified," as well as a commitment to community and exceptional products, Java Love Coffee Roasting Co. has continued to grow, while staying strong to their roots.  

Java Love Coffee - Papua new Guinea

Their exceptional line of coffee includes Brazil Cerrado, Columbia Jardin Excelso, Costa Rica Rio Negro, Guatemala La Flor Del Café Antigua, Ethiopia Sidama, Papua New Guinea, Sumatra Mutu Batak, and many more. One of the things that distinguish Java Love is that they sell their coffee either as Whole Bean or various grinds including French Press/Cold Brew, Single Filter Pour Over, Automatic Drip Paper Filter, Automatic Drip Metal Filter, Espresso Grind, and Keurig Grind, to ensure that customers get the best coffee experience for their preferred method of making coffee.  

Java Love Coffee - Guatemal La Flor Del Cafe

We tried three of their coffees Papua New Guinea, Brazil Cerrado, and Guatemala La Flor Del Café Antigua, all medium roasts, and packaged in 12-ounce bags, and had them shipped as whole bean so that we could grind as needed to match our various coffee makers. Each coffee we sampled was a standout with their own distinctive flavors.  

The Papua New Guinea was described on the bag as being organically grown with complex notes, sweet acidity, and spice, crisp and mildly spicy with nutty chocolate and fruits. Brazil Cerrado listed notes of granola and cashew with sweet tangerines, graham crackers and sweet cocoa. The Guatemala La Flor Del Café Antigua was delectably smooth and listed chocolate and caramel notes, floral, aromatics, vanilla-caramel undertones, and rich chocolate finish.  

Java Love Coffee - Citrus Ginger Tea
Citrus Ginger Tea

Although their name is Java Love Coffee Roasting Co., they also have a lovely selection of teas under the name Java Love Tea & Co., which are ethically sources loose leaf teas. We sampled their Citrus Ginger Tea, an organic blend of hibiscus flower, rosehips, ginger root, orange, and tangerine, which arrived in a sleek black tin 4-ounce box. This beautiful and very tasty tea should be steeped for 3-5 minutes in 175-degree Fahrenheit water to elicit all the flavor and gorgeous color. For maximum visual enjoyment and a "wow" factor if serving to guests, make the tea in a clear teapot or clear mug to capture its beauty. 

In addition to drinking the coffee and tea the usual way, black, no sugar, no cream, Luxury Experience was "In the kitchen and behind the bar®" creating some incredibly special handcrafted cocktails and a culinary recipe to tempt your palate and inspire your own creations using Java Love Coffee Roasting Co. coffees and Java Love Tea & Co. teas.

The Culinary Recipe

Luxury Experience - Spirited Vodka Coffee Charlotte is an easy to make, easy to love dessert that will win lots of compliments. The recipe uses store-bought lady fingers, and delectable homemade easy to make vodka coffee pastry cream that is perfect for summertime entertaining. As the Papua New Guinea coffee has chocolate notes, it was a delectable addition to this dessert.  

Pastry Cream Ingredients:
 

1.25
Cups
Whole Milk
0.50
Cup
Half & Half (or Light Cream)
0.25
Cup
2
Large
Egg Yolks
0.50
Cup
Cornstarch
1
Pinch
Salt
1
Ounce

Method: Use a food processor or standing mixer. Add the yolks and sugar and process until very creamy, then add cornstarch and salt to create a slurry. Keep the food processor running to create a smooth consistency.  

In a saucepan, heat the milk, Half & Half, and coffee until scalding.  Slowly add 1 small ladle of hot milk mixture to the egg mixture with the food processer running. This is to temper the eggs so they will not curdle. Continue adding 1 ladle at a time of the hot milk mixture to the egg mixture, until all the milk has been added to the eggs. Return mixture to the saucepan and cook over medium heat for about 2 minutes to thicken. Remove from heat and stir in the organic Rime Vodka to flavor the pastry cream. Let cool in a bowl, then cover and refrigerate until ready to use. Can be made 1 day ahead. 

Lady Finger Ingredients:
 

24
 
Lady Fingers (1 package)
1
Ounce
2
Ounces
1
Teaspoon
Sugar

Method: Dissolve sugar in hot coffee. Set aside to cool, then add the Rime Vodka.  

Method to Assemble the Charlotte: Line a mold with plastic wrap. Quickly dip lady fingers one at a time into the vodka-coffee mixture and place against the sides and bottom of your mold. Gently fill with your prepared pastry cream. Cover the pastry cream with the remaining lady fingers dipped in the vodka coffee mixture. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for several hours.  

Presentation: Invert Charlotte onto a plate. Remove plastic wrap. Lightly dust with 1-tablespoon cocoa powder and a few coffee beans in the corners of your plate.
