Mango-lime macarons

I’m taking a short break from my Asian-inspired macaron flavors series for a while, so I’m sharing here the recipe for what is turning out to be the second most popular flavor being ordered since I started my small business—mango-lime macarons. And no, I do not consider mango here as strictly Asian since it is also found in Africa and South America 😁

Asian-inspired flavors: Kopi Luwak macarons

Finally, here’s number 5 of my Asian-inspired macaron flavors series: Kopi Luwak macarons with Kopi Luwak ganache. This one is inspired by this year’s trip to Bali, Indonesia. Besides the Ulun Danu temple (a.k.a. Bedugul temple) on Lake Bratan in Bedugul, the island is known for the very exclusive Kopi Luwak.

Kopi Luwak is a type of coffee produced from beans that have been digested by the palm civet. This unique production procedure is what makes it the most expensive coffee in the world, fetching as much as $100 per cup.* Taste-wise, Kopi Luwak is also quite unlike any cup of coffee—it is «smoother» in a sense, and has considerably less of the bitter after-taste usually associated with regular coffee.

* Needless to say, this might be my first and last attempt translating this coffee drink into macaron form. Apart from the cost, the taste might not exactly be favored by your typical coffee aficionados 😅
