Refreshing Coffee Drinks For Summer

The time is now, in this summer heat, to switch to iced coffee. Whether you are looking for a quick fix or a more involved preparation, we’ve got you covered.

Let’s start with everyone’s summer drink, lemonade, and turn it into a caffeinated Arnold Palmer. Try this cold brew lemonade. You’ll need:

lemonade-coffee1-2 oz lemon juice
1 oz simple syrup (see note below)
4-5 oz water
4-5 oz cold brew coffee (you can use regular brew instead)
Ice

1. Make the lemonade by combining the juice, the syrup and water in a glass. You want to make a slightly tart lemonade, not very sweet. When it tastes the way you want…

2. Add ice to the glass, then top up with the coffee. Stir and enjoy!

NOTE: Make simple syrup by combining equal amounts of water and sugar. Bring to a boil, then allow to cool. Store in the refrigerator for best results. Simple syrup is perfect for iced drinks – no trying to dissolve sugar in a cold liquid.

Affogato-2019-EAnother favorite coffee drink this summer should be an Affogato. The word means “drowned” because the espresso is poured over a scoop of vanilla ice cream or gelato. The espresso should be hot, and be sure to use a spoon to get every drop. Is it a dessert? Is a drink? You decide. Either way, you won’t be disappointed.

Finally, let’s try a Coconut Caramel Coffee. You’ll need:
coconut-caramel-coffee
8 oz coffee
Ice
1-2 Tablespoons coconut milk
1-2 teaspoons caramel syrup

1. Start with the coffee in a mug or glass. Stir in the milk and the syrup. Add a pinch of sweetener if desired. Serve and enjoy!

Coffee In The News

Europe’s Oldest Person, Ran a Coffee Bar, Passes Away at 116

We have written before about some of the oldest people in the world who happen to live in Italy. This month, great-grandmother Giuseppina Robucci died in the southern town of Poggio Imperiale. She is officially the last European born in 1903. (A woman in Japan, 2 months older than Robucci, is the current oldest living person in the world.) Robucci had five children, nine grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren. She and her husband ran a coffee bar for much of their lives, and she was even named an honorary mayor back when she was a young 109 year old.

The Best Of Italy – It’s Closer Than You Think!

There are a handful of delicacies in the world that you immediately associate with its country of origin: Apple pie from America; white meat sausages from Germany; syrup waffle cookies from Holland; croissants from France…well, you get the idea. This week, we are looking at Italy, and its iconic foods, in particular coffee, of course, and the coffee-flavored dessert, Tiramisu.
Italian-coffee-and-Tiramisu-400pxTiramisu, literally translated as “pick me up” or “lift me up,” is a dessert made from cake dipped in coffee, layered with whipped mascarpone cheese, sugar, and eggs, sprinkled with cocoa. You might be surprised to know that the cake’s provenance has long been in question. One of the most popular beliefs has its invention during the 1960’s at a restaurant in Treviso. Another possible origin is a World War II dessert made for soldiers to pick them up with caffeine and alcohol. It may even date back to the 17th century in Tuscany, where layered desserts were popular. Regardless of where it started, traditional tiramisu is Italy’s dessert. We have included a recipe for tiramisu below – it’s really just a trifle, a layered dessert. So enjoy!

A Traditional Italian Christmas

Christmas in Italy is one big celebration from early December into January! The holidays are filled with celebrations, parades, music, food and a deep reverence for the religious aspects of the season.

In Italy, people wish each other “Buon Natale!” Christmas decorations are put up the day following the celebration of Mary’s Immaculate Conception, December 8th. Everyone displays a version of the Nativity scene, called the “Presepe.” In fact, Naples is the home to an extremely elaborate and detailed Nativity scene with more than six hundred decorations and figures. Another symbol of the season is the Poinsettia plant, displayed and sold everywhere.

Milan-Cathedral-Christmas-Banner

la-befana-300pxA unique aspect of gift-giving in Italy is the arrival of La Befana, a kindly old witch. She rides a broomstick, dressed in patched clothing, but smiling as she delivers bags of gifts for the children by way of the chimney. Good children get candy; bad children get lumps of coal.

La Befana sweeps up after herself when she leaves too. She does this the night before Epiphany, the 12th day of Christmas, in early January. A large family meal is shared on Epiphany, which officially ends the Italian holiday season.


What is served at every holiday meal in Italy? You guessed it: Delicious Italian coffee! This week, we are offering 15% off our specialty Italian roasters including Bristot, Caffe Vergnano, Hausbrandt, illy, Miscela D’Oro, Pellini, and Sant Eustachio at www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com.*

6 Current Coffee Trends + 1 Great Deal from Enjoy Better Coffee = Score!

For fun, this week we have gathered the scoop on 6 current coffee trends, including how you can recreate a few of them at home, should you feel so moved. Then, order coffee from us and we’ll give you $5 off your order of $30 or more.*

Here are the top 6 coffee trends for 2017, in no particular order:

1.  Gourmet Coffee varieties have made a big splash for coffee drinkers. Consumer consumption increased from 18 to 24 percent in just one year. More than half of all consumers, almost 60 percent, report they drank a cup of gourmet coffee in the last 24 hours.**

~At Enjoy Better Coffee, we have only premium and specialty coffees made in Europe for the European market.

2. Sparkling Coffee Soda is cold-brew coffee with lemon and tonic water, seltzer or flavored soda. Use the typical ratio of 1:1 coffee to water, replacing the water with something bubbly. Put a scoop of ice cream on top and you have a very special float.

3. Gin and Coffee Tonic, served in a glass, is made with 10ml (2 teaspoons) of cold-brew coffee added to a shot of gin. Add tonic, garnish with lemon.

4. Vietnamese Egg Coffee consists of one espresso and 3 tablespoons of condensed (not evaporated) milk that has been whisked with an egg yolk and a drop of vanilla into a meringue-like, creamy topping. Enjoy.

5. Coffee In A Cone probably won’t be available at your local café. But imagine this: A specially-made chocolate lined waffle cone that is leak-proof for 10 minutes, and is filled with a coffee latte.

6. More people than ever are drinking coffee daily, with all age groups showing an increase from last year. Up a mere 2 percent are the 18-24 year olds, while those aged 40-59 are up 11 percent from last year.**

Try one or more of our premium ground, whole bean and instant coffees. Find a great espresso roast. Bring home an assortment of pods or capsules. Whatever your choice, you’ll get $5 off your order of $30 or more at www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com.*

Please use coupon code: FIVEOFF

*Discount valid through 11:59 PM PDT on 8/22/17 with $30 minimum order before shipping costs at EnjoyBetterCoffee.com. Not valid with other coupons or discounts, special sale or case sale products.
**Per the National Coffee Association’s 2017 National Coffee Drinking Trends report

Interested in trying one or more of these trends? You’ll need this easy recipe for making cold-brew coffee. And maybe you will just create your own coffee trend!

How to Cold Brew:

1. Use a medium to coarse grind of coffee. Place the grounds in the bottom of a non-reactive container. Add cold water, using a 1:4 parts coffee-to-water ratio. Stir gently to combine.

2. Cover, then allow mixture to steep for 18-24 hours, either in or out of the refrigerator.

3. Strain the brewed coffee into a container to remove the grounds; it may take a few passes using paper towels, muslin or even a coffee machine filter. (If it remains cloudy, try using a larger grind next time.)

4. To make a coffee drink, try 1:1 parts coffee to water. You may have to adjust the ratio, up to 1:8 parts coffee to water, to get the flavor you like.

5. The concentrate should be stored in the refrigerator in a covered container.
