Ditch that sugar, and try these healthy ways to sweeten and flavor your coffee instead - so you can enjoy a healthier and fresher mug of coffee at any time of the day. Coffee has numerous health benefits. But, by adding a few spoonful’s of sugar to it, you turn that healthy drink into something more harmful. The good news is that you can use many sugar alternatives to sweeten coffee. So, what to put in coffee to make it taste good? And how to make coffee taste good without creamer?
Stevia is a natural, no-calorie sweetener extracted from the South American stevia plant. Using Stevia is one of the most common healthy ways to sweeten coffee. It does have a bit of a distinctive taste though. You can also sweeten coffee with honey. Cinnamon is natural spice that will make your coffee healthier and more flavorful. If you like gingerbread, then adding ginger to your coffee will give you a similar taste! Extracts also mix well with iced coffee. Try a few drops of pure vanilla, almond or hazelnut extract in place of sugar. If you’re looking to add sweetness without a lot of flavor, try pouring a bit of coconut milk into your cup of coffee. Almond milk also makes a delicious healthy coffee creamer. Pure maple syrup is another healthy alternative to sugar in coffee
The bloom of coffee is when all of the gases that have been trapped inside the coffee bean start leaking out. This process begins when hot water is introduced to the grind. Then the bean absorbs and expands and at the same time, pushes out all the CO2 trapped inside. Where does the CO2 come from? It happens during the roasting process. Dark roasts, for example, have more of a bloom, as they are roasted for longer and more CO2 gets trapped inside.
This is how we can tell how fresh a bean is or how freshly roasted it is. The reason it matters is that there is a bunch of flavor in those gases, as well as aromatics. The less gas in your coffee, the staler it will taste. This makes sense because if a coffee doesn’t bloom, it’s probably old.
Drinking coffee is a daily activity for many people across the world. Whether you use an electric coffee maker, a French press or any other type of coffee brewing method, you may be wondering how you can avoid throwing all those spent coffee grounds into the garbage.
Here are 6 ways to recycle your used coffee grounds
In this video, we go back to the coffee basics where we enumarate the differences between Arabica and Robusta Coffee Beans.
The two varieties differ in taste, growing conditions, price. Arabica beans tend to have a sweeter, softer taste, with tones of sugar, fruit, and berries. Their acidity is higher, with that winey taste that characterizes coffee with excellent acidity.
Robusta, however, has a stronger, harsher taste, with a grain-like overtone and peanutty aftertaste. They contain twice as much caffeine as Arabica beans, and they are generally considered to be of inferior quality compared to Arabica. Some robustas, however, are of high quality and valued especially in espressos for their deep flavor and good crema.
In this video we will explain to you the difference between automatic and semi-automatic espresso machine. We get asked this question very frequently. The answer is one simple expression - 'Shot Timing'.
So, what is 'Shot Timing'? - It is the time taken for the hot pressurised water to pass through the coffee grounds to give you your espresso shot measuring around 30 ml.
In a Semi-automatic machine, the user has to control the timing by sight. Which means you flick the switch and start the pump, let the brew pour out, watch the brew fall into the cup, and when you have estimated visually, that the brew collected in the cup is around 30ml, you flip the switch and stop the pump. This is the procedure you need to follow in a semi-automatic machine.
In a fully automatic machine, the electronics inside have a built-in timer which is programmed to stop the pump automatically after a pre-determined time. So all you have to do is press one button to get the pump started. No visual inspection required and perfect results every time.
In worthy to mention here that the industry standard of 30ml for an espresso shot is not etched in stone.
You could, depending on your personal taste or on the basis of the coffee bean characteristics like roast or origin profile choose to have your espresso shot either less or more than the 30ml suggested shot size.
This variation in the shot quantity can be achieved in both machines.
In the semi-automatic, the running of the pump is in your control anyway.
In this video I will show you the basics about the coffee drinks you've been ordering.
