Pairing food with coffees - is there such a thing?

thomas64 | Dec 5, 2011 11:23 AM

I was never a big coffee drinker, and I never drank it with the main meal - just with dessert or by itself. Now, I'm drinking more with meals and I'm discovering that some of the foods I eat are enhanced by coffee. Are there guidelines about pairing coffee with food as there are with wines and beers? Yes, I know the philosophy about drinking what you like no matter what the rules are, but I'm curious to see if anyone has guidelines. Keep in mind that I'm not a coffee guru, so any suggestions would have to be on the basic, inexpensive side of the things.
