  • Holiday Drink Ideas!

    We've all heard of the egg nog latte or the peppermint mocha, but what about some other flavors fit for holiday cheer?

    Lots of Lattes!

    Lattes are one of the easiest drinks to influence the flavor of. By choosing the right coffee and the right syrup, there's no end to the combinations. Try frosted mint syrup for a peppermint kick in an eggnog latte or traditional mocha! Looking for something a little more rich and nutty? Monin's peanut butter syrup offers just that.

    Beyond syrups, there's loads of spices that you can add to bring your latte up a notch. Try some brown sugar and cardamom for an aromatic, delicious touch. Nutmeg, cinnamon, and simple syrup also make for a delectable addition to any holiday cup of coffee.

     

    No Espresso? No Problem!

    Maybe espresso just isn't your jam. Fear not! With a hint of heavy cream, spice, and fruity syrup or concentrate, you can add some holiday cheer to your favorite pourover or press brew as well. To really wow your family and friends, try experimenting with fruit and spice combinations that match up with the tasting notes on the coffee roasts you're using.

    Another fun way to bring a cooler twist to your holiday coffee offering is to stock up on cold brew! Cold brew mixes great with everything mentioned above, especially with some milk. Try cold frothing in a Breville Milk Café for an extra tasty holiday "notte!"

    We'll be back Monday with another batch of great holiday roasts to check out!

  • Recipe Spotlight: Fat Americano

    This week we're diving into a quirky drink popularized in Seoul, South Korea, the Fat Americano!

    The Fat Americano is simple to make. First, you'll need a double shot of espresso, brewed over ice. Next, add the espresso to an iced glass of your favorite cola!

    This drink combines the sweetness of an ice cold cola with the chocolatey complexity of espresso. It won't be to everyone's taste, but it's also a great way to kick the caffeine content of your cola up too.

    If you want to add even more sweet decadence to this drink, consider adding a small amount of sweetened condensed milk! This will really round out the flavor profile and make for a cool, tasty treat!

  • Fresca Coffee Recipe

    Are you as ready for summer as we are? We thought we’d start off the week with a tall glass of—Fresca coffee? Trust us, you have to try it before you write it off. We’re using Fresca but our coffee pal Ricardo sent in the original recipe using Sprite, which he called the “AeroSprite.” Has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?

    As Ricardo’s recipe name suggests, we’re brewing our coffee in the AeroPress. We picked up a fresh bag of 49th Parallel’s Longitude 123 W for those sweet, dried fruit notes to complement the lime and Fresca—oh, by the way, there’s some lime in this recipe. We thought that might get your attention. We turned to our trusty Breville Smart Grinder Pro to grind our coffee into consistent table salt-sized grounds.

    Equipment:

    Brew Method: Inverted AeroPress

    Ingredients

    • 30 grams coffee
    • 200 grams Fresca or Sprite
    • 100 grams ice
    • 100 grams water
    • 2 lime wedges
    1. Heat water to 195 degrees Fahrenheit.
    2. Grind coffee into table salt-sized or medium fine grounds. Turn the AeroPress upside down with the plunger in and add 30 grams of coffee.
    3. Add water to AeroPress and brew for one minute.
    4. While you’re brewing, add 100 grams of ice to your glass and then pour cold Fresca on top.
    5. Squeeze two lime wedges into the glass and if you’re feeling fancy, stick a couple of wedges to the side of the glass.
    6. Plunge the AeroPress over the glass with Fresca—don’t miss the show! The coffee creates beautiful swirls.
    7. Stir the coffee into the Fresca and take a big sip—I told you to trust us! It’s perfect for summer.
  • Adult Mexican Coffee Affogato

    Once in a while you need a little extra humph with your coffee. What’s better than a little tequila and coffee liquor to get the engines revving? Quick answer: Adding ice cream to your booze! Drink up this deliciously creamy Adult Mexican Coffee Affogato that’s just in time for Cinco de Mayo. Thank you, Jane for taking all of our favorite things into one yummy drink!

    We used the trusty Breville Barista Express so we could grind and brew our espresso in one go. The easy programmability is nice after a couple of espresso shots, too, and you can be sure you’ll have a line out the door for this drink! We picked Victrola’s Streamline Espresso for the smooth chocolate and fruit flavor that's robust in an espresso.

    Pro Tip: We recommend a robust coffee blend for this drink, but it's not necessary with the coffee liquor to get a well-rounded flavor.

    Equipment

    Ingredients

    • 16 grams coffee
    • 1/2 ounce tequila
    • 1/2 ounce coffee liquor
    • 1 BIG scoop vanilla ice cream
    1. Prep your espresso machine ahead of time. (If you're using the Breville Barista Express, we clocked it at 70 seconds)
    2. Add one big scoop of ice cream, tequila and coffee liquor into your glass.
    3. Grind 16-ounces of coffee to make two shots of espresso. Brew straight onto your glass!
    4. Stir it up and take a big bite of your Mexican Coffee Affogato. ¡Delicioso!
