Mother’s Day: Treat Mum to an Afternoon Coffee

This Mother's Day why not swap your Afternoon Tea for an Afternoon Coffee. Discover our exclusive recipes and blends from Michelin starred chef Ashley Palmer-Watts that will transform your afternoon brew.

Your mum has enjoyed her fair share of afternoon teas, but has she ever sampled the delights of an afternoon coffee?


Mother's Day is the one day of the year dedicated to celebrating the incredible women in our lives who have raised, loved, and supported us over the years. It's a day to show our appreciation and gratitude for all the sacrifices, hard work, and unconditional love they have given us. And what better way to do that than by treating our mums to a Mother's Day afternoon coffee?



An afternoon coffee is our take on an afternoon tea (obviously!). It’s more original, more delicious and is the perfect opportunity to spend some quality time with your mum, sharing stories and enjoying fresh coffee and indulgent treats. Whether you decide to host the tea at your home or set up shop at hers, this is your chance to show mum how much she means to you and how much you appreciate everything she has done for you.


So, if you're looking for a special – and somewhat different – way to celebrate Mother's Day this year, consider treating your mum to a delightful afternoon coffee. Read on for some recipes, tips and ideas for hosting the perfect Mother's Day coffee this year:



Treat Mum to The Libra - Our New Half-Caf Blend


The Libra is our favourite new coffee! With a perfect 50/50 balance between caffeinated and decaf coffee, it’ll give you a boost without the jitters, and with less caffeine than a cup of tea but just enough to give you a lift, it’s the perfect afternoon brew. But, to be honest, The Libra is a blend so delicious you’ll want to drink it all day long.


Our new creation shares the unmistakable intensity and complexity of our iconic signature blends, but thanks to our finely tuned ‘Swiss water’ decaffeination technique, it comes with half the caffeine. Win-win!

Bake A Michelin-Starred Banana Bread


Ashley’s banana bread with caramelised banana and Chantilly cream is the ultimate indulgence. It’s hands-down the best banana bread we’ve ever tried (and, well, we lived through two lockdowns, so we consider ourselves pretty well versed!). A winning bake if ever there was one from our very own Michelin-starred Ashley Palmer-Watts.


Begin your day rushed, stressed, and in a flap and you’ll likely have a rushed, stressful and unproductive day. Start the day feeling strong and centred, and your day is much more likely to be calm, productive and stress-free.

Throw a Curveball and Rustle up Ashley's French Toast


Tucking into French toast doesn’t have to be confined to the breakfast table! It’s easy, a crowd-pleaser, and is easy on the eye too (we’re looking at you, Instagrammers!). But have you ever added coffee to your French Toast? We hadn’t either, but trust is this is the secret ingredient to making the most delicious and indulgent French Toast on the planet. It’s secret Ashley discovered whilst visiting The Fat Duck for the first time with friends and tasting their vanilla ice cream and now he’s sharing it with you!

Got a Chocoholic for a Mother? Make Her Day with a Rich and Gooey Chocolate Fudge Brownie


The Big Shot Chocolate Brownie is just too yummy to resist. Oozing with heavenly fudgy chocolate, the touch of coffee in these to-die-for brownies makes all the difference to their depth of flavour. Plus, they are so easy to make! Guaranteed to impress, these deliciously moreish cocoa squares will have everyone racing back for more.
