The taste of coffee with the magic of cooking. This week coffee brand L´OR Espresso is launching a campaign in collaboration with star chef Joris Bijdendijk. In this campaign Joris takes you along on a sensory journey. Together with L’OR Espresso he dives into the world of coffee; we will get to know a palette of flavors, aromas and matching dishes. The campaign consists of a video series of three episodes that show the versatile and sensory qualities of L´OR Espresso, in which seduction of the senses is the main focus. According to Joris and L´OR Espresso, coffee is so much more than a quick caffeine boost. It is great to drink, but just as much fun to cook with. In the videos, viewers learn how to really taste coffee, how to recognize different flavor profiles and how to incorporate coffee into dishes.
