The problem with ordering a "Macchiato" is that it's only half of the name of a traditional coffee drink. "Macchiato" means "stained" or "flecked" and not more. In Italy, you have either Latte macchiato: *Milk "stained" with coffee (more precisely caffè or espresso) or Espresso macchiato: Espresso (or caffè) "stained" with a spoonful of milk foam. If ...

You may find similar discussion mostly on the health tag. The most relevant question was previously closed on Coffee SE site as it was opinion-based. What's the minimum recommended age for drinking a coffee? Let me add my opinion here: my 2.5 years old niece drinks regular (not decaf) Turkish coffee together with us during her daily routine. Caffeine's ...

What is Navy coffee? No one really knows for sure. Some naval vessels used to put salt in the coffee either to kill the bitterness (or to help stay hydrated), but it was neither a universal or permanent practice. William Ewing, QM1(SW) USN (ret), Quartermaster E-6 has this to about the subject: When navy coffee was 50% chicory, 50% cheap coffee (most of ...

While I never heard of rice as coffee-substitute, people have used roasted malted barley, spelt, chicory or dandelion roots or even acorns (and other foods) to make a dark, aromatic brew that was used either separately or mixed with coffee, especially in times of scant resources. I suppose the rice would not be burnt1 (because that would taste horrible), ...

Cold brew, SUPER simple version. A.K.A. my college days version. One tbsp of any coffee per cup of water. Let it sit in the fridge for about 12 hrs. Pour and drink. In my college days I got a half gallon milk jug. Washed it out of course. Which is about 8 cups. I would put 8 tbsp of any coffee I could get my hands on and put it in the fridge over night. ...

It is true, that Kopi Luwak is one of the most expensive coffee bean. The process to achieve specialised coffee is long and they are risks of failing is very high. Thus, it makes it more expensive. Read ref below to understand more. There are some beans that are produced in Penang,Malayasia are very expensive but they taste out world(honestly). When enquired ...

I am South Indian and a coffee fanatic; and each time I order an espresso, the coffee shop staff member will be sure to say, there is no milk in it. They don't say 'no sugar' in my town because it's probably assumed that we will add sugar separately anyway. This happened again recently in a new coffee shop in the neighborhood, so I asked the employee ...

A "pour over coffee cone and paper filter" will make excellent coffee. You'll only need to get good ground coffee and hot water to enjoy coffee aroma and taste. Hope this is helpful

A story often shared as the origin of coffee consumption is that of Kaldi and The Dancing Goats, which comes out of Ethiopia, the birthplace of coffee. Kaldi was a herder who discovered his goats would become rambunctious after eating the berries and leaves of a plant. That plant turned out to be the coffee plant. Upon observing this, Kaldi also partook of ...

I think caffeine can´t make you lean if you eat well & health food, and of course doing some exercises, gym, jogging etc. Caffeine is most consumed psychoactive drug, legal of course(more at wiki). Also, I like to start day with warm cup of coffee. :) Btw, about year ago I use caffeine pills (200mg pure caffeine per pill , it really have effect, ...

Because they are low brow, that is lower quality and much less desirable. Robusta beans are generally regarded as inferior to Arabica and command about half the price. Many coffee producers will proudly proclaim that their coffee is 100% Arabica as a hallmark of quality. Arabica beans produce a richer taste and have a better balance of sweet acidity. Sugar,...

Another interesting one is the story of the first coffee house in Vienna. It starts with the siege of Vienna by the Ottomans in the end of the 16th century. Jerzy Franciszek Kulczycki is a Polish/Ukranian man who is now regarded as a hero and known as the owner of the first coffee house of Vienna. Probably, the inventor of cappuccino. He was a very fluent ...

One interesting story is Ottoman Sultan Murat IV banned coffee consumption in Istanbul in between 1632 to 1640. The reason is simple, the people were sitting in "kahvehane"s (the coffeehouses) of Istanbul and discussing politics. He wants to stop people discussing himself, easiest way to stop discussions were getting rid of social areas at all which was ...

You were most likely right in saying 'no' straight out. Coffee is considered organic if no chemical substances were used for its production. This includes herbicides, pesticides, and I believe some fertilizers too. Wikipedia agrees with this. But even if you're a coffee producer and you're sure you don't use chemical substances and there are no residues in ...

Sure, Cafe Carajillo is a well-known recipe to consume whisky and coffee together. It is black coffee, some whisky and herbs mixed together. I'm sure professional bartenders probably know or invent more.

There's an interesting article from Whisky Advocate about aging of coffee and whiskey with some history and current offerings. Specifically, it talks about using a whiskey barrel, after the whiskey was removed, to age coffee (either green or already roasted). Also it discusses the outcome of the other way around: aging coffee in a barrel, then removing the ...

This is actually called black ivory coffee. Cambodia is not actually where you get this coffee originally. The company that creates this coffee is actually based in Thailand and uses coffee beans and elephants in Thailand to make this weird sounding coffee. As said by Wikipedia: Black Ivory Coffee is a brand of coffee produced by the Black Ivory Coffee ...

The problem doesn't seem to be in your brewing practices but in the way you store your coffee. Roasted coffee starts to stale soon after the resting/degassing period ends. Ideally you ought to store your coffee in a vacuum-sealed container that won’t impart unwanted flavors to your coffee. Placing your coffee into the fridge, as many people do, isn't ...

Disclaimer: The great article of Reginald Smith's "A History of Coffee" is a must read for everybody who has interest. One of the stories of coffee's discovery, which is more common than others is as follows: Kaldi, a monk and a goatherd, sees his goats gets excited after eating some berries. Then, prepares the coffee from the beans of the berries. The ...

If you have access to an electric outlet, small coffee machines are cheap. If you have access to hot water or a way to create hot water (a gas burner in a communal kitchen, perhaps) there are tons of options; a few examples would be a French press, moka pot, a 'pour-over', and single-serve coffee bags (just like tea bags, only with coffee). If you have ...

Well, when there is no grinder, plunger, filter machine, or espresso machine, and even no cone filter papers, you still can make a great cup of coffee. I used to do this method when my coffee machine had been broken: Get any grounded coffee pour some hot water give it a good stir for one minute or so leave it to brew for a couple of minutes ...

Correct. It (caffeine) can make you lean. But just a bit. It increases the overall speed of the metabolism, thus the body burns more fats. However, I don't think its effect is overwhelming. Also, think of other ingredients in coffee. Each cup of coffee includes its own fat and hydrocarbons from the beans even if you don't add any cream and sugar into it. ...

It was in Vienna, by a Capuchin Monk who is a friend of the owner of the first coffee shop of the city. Please see this previous answer.

I also agree that "The World Atlas of Coffee" by James Hoffman is a good book. It covers a lot of things including the history of coffee, growing and production as well as roasting and brewing. A big section of the book is indeed an atlas, showing various countries and where the coffees are grown. Nice maps and plenty of good photo's too. If you are already ...

Since i was a child my mother always cooked roasted rice or we call that SARA SARA,I feel better everytime we drink it as replacement of coffee,but i suggest not to burn too much coz it taste bitter😋 As on our experienced i noticed there's no side effect,it's just my opinion😊 Just try it sometimes but don't take it everyday 👍

I'm going to isolate this response to only drip brewing machines since if we start talking about espresso, all my assumptions fly out the window. Really you pay for the following on a machine: Looks Water Temperature Control Proper design of brewing (water shower, pump rate, cone / basket design) Brand Older drip brewers lacked a few things. The brewing ...

I don't know that this is a standard time period.. Honestly, the more coffee you drink, the less you are going to get the 'buzz' going. A lot of this depends on your body type, activity level, and genes. You have to think of caffeine like a drug, because that is what it essentially is. When you take your first sip of coffee, it takes about 45 minutes for ...

There are chocolate covered coffee bean candies. They look something like that: We may build an equation such as: one cup of espresso includes around 7 grams of coffee, 7 grams of coffee could be grounded around 50 mid-sized beans. So, if you eat 50 of these drops, it will be roughly equal to a cup of coffee. (Plus fibers, potassium and many others that I ...

Based on the wording of your question; I believe there is no current classification for this denomination in the coffee market. When you compare this with the electronics market; there are devices developed for the "prosumer" market which are targeted at professional consumers (average Joe that can make it rain), but are not used to their full capacity. ...
