Valentines Tiramisu

Valentines Tiramisu

Nothing says love ❤️ more than an after dinner coffee with a classic Italian dessert! After all Italian food and romance go together like you and Mara Coffee ☕️

Here’s how to make a wonderful Tiramisu for the big day that just keeps you wanting to come back for more.


  • 600ml double cream
  • 250g mascarpone
  • 50ml marsala
  • 3 tbsp caster sugar
  • 300ml strong coffee - ideally African speciality coffee
  • 175g sponge fingers or chocolate biscotti
  • 25g dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids or more if you like it super dark. Divine chocolate is excellent for this recipe)


  1. Mix together the cream, mascarpone, marsala and sugar in a large bowl. Be sure to whisk until the mixture is thick and leaves a heavy trail
  2. Dip each of the sponge fingers into the coffee. Just a quick soak will do, no super soggy fingers here!
  3. Layer half the sponge fingers with your cream mix and top with half of your grated chocolate
  4. Now repeat step 3 creating another final layer
  5. Chill in the fridge for a good few hours or ideally overnight.


Serve to that special someone with a Mara coffee espresso and give the gift of coffee ☕️ 😘 ❤️

Happy Valentines!
