By J. Caroline Carroll (NC) - The next time you are stuck not knowing what to serve for dessert, do remember that some dinner party coffees are so eye-catching they overshadow the arrival of dessert anyway. Here are two holiday specialties, from Tchibo, the No.1 coffee favorite in Europe, alongside one of their valuable coffee cuisine tips:

Tip By Tchibo:

A safe and moderate daily intake of caffeine is pegged at 400 to 450 milligrams. Here's a sample of the count in favourite food and beverages:

  • A cup of filtered coffee, or espresso: 50 mg
  • One can of energy drink: average 80 mg
  • One can of cola: average 40 mg
  • One cup of tea: 30-50 mg
  • One bar of dark chocolate: around 100 mg

Cafe Tchibo

  • 4 tbsp Tchibo classic roasted coffee
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 4 shots (3 tbsp per shot) coffee liqueur
  • Whipped cream

For 4 servings: Put coffee, cocoa and cinnamon in a coffee filter and brew 4 cups. In heat resistant glasses, or mugs, pour one shot of coffee liqueur each and add the mocha-cinnamon coffee brew. Top with whipped cream and sprinkle with cinnamon.

Santa's Irish Coffee

  • 1 cup Tchibo classic roasted coffee
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 shot (3 tbsp) Irish whiskey
  • Heavy cream, slightly whipped

For individual servings: Pour fresh brewed coffee into a pre-warmed, heat resistant glass to 3/4 full. Add brown sugar and stir until dissolved. Add Irish whiskey. Top with cream and serve immediately while hot.
