Ingredients
  1. 1 3/4 cups flour
  2. 2 eggs
  3. 20 ml extra-virgin olive oil
  4. A pinch of salt
  5. 3 small, cups of espresso coffee
  6. Heavy Cream (suitable for cooking) 250 ml
  7. 1/4 cup butter
  8. Small handful of chopped chives
  9. Water as needed
  10. Parmesan (to taste)
Instructions
  1. Put the flour in a large bowl and make a well in the middle
  2. Add the eggs, oil and salt and mix in with the flour, first with a fork, then with your hands
  3. Add the espresso a little at a time, kneading consistently until it comes together to an elastic dough. Add water if there is no coffee left, of it the coffee flavor is too strong.
  4. Roll out the dough very thinly, using some flour on the work surface to stop it sticking, and leave for a few minutes, then roll loosely and cut the dough into strips (as wide as you like)
  5. Boil the strips in plenty of water with a pinch of salt and while you wait for them to cook, prepare the sauce
  6. Melt the butter over a low heat and slowly add the cream to thicken into a sauce
  7. Add salt, freshly ground pepper and your favorite cheese to taste
  8. Once you have drained the tagliatelle, toss with the sauce and serve with a sprinkling of chives.

Whether you are looking to experiment with new recipes, serve something different to your guests at a dinner party, or make a fun and different mid-week meal, coffee tagliatelle is a wonderful choice. 
Serve this unusual gourmet pasta with a creamy white sauce and flavor with parmesan cheese for a subtly rich taste. The trick to preparing excellent coffee pasta is using good quality espresso: create a strong, thick brew using an automatic espresso machine to flavor your pasta and control the strength of the coffee, or use a drip coffee maker for a milder, more delicate flavor.
