Inspired by the taste of gingersnap cookies alongside a Steampunk espresso, I had high hopes for this combination. I thought the assertive sharp and spicy qualities would peak through and add a layer of complexity. 

Our first attempt added a really nice aroma to the coffee. The smells balanced well, but I couldn't taste it at all. Brian could but he didn't look convinced. So, we added more for round two. This time the ginger taste came through strongly but overpowered most of the delicate floral aromas and tastes to the coffee. A little too competitive. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't great. Ginger is better left in the cookie.
