Coffee is the life blood of product development in Dunedin. So much so that certain members of the office partake in a coffee bean pool so that they can enjoy true espresso from an espresso machine without the bite four cups of it would normally inflict on one’s wallet.
I personally can never take part, as straight coffee, even a delicious milky latte, sees me with stomach cramp for the rest of the day. When I worked at a café in town they had this espresso fudge that was unbelievably delicious and didn’t send me looking for paracetamol. I had a go at re-creating it and shared it with the office, everyone went back for extra helpings so that’s a sign it was well liked, right? And the great thing about it is, it’s easy to make, no baking required, and an excellent indulgence for an afternoon pick me up.
