by in News, June 30th, 2017

Citrus Coffee Soda Promises Everything You Love in One SipIt’s a hot summer afternoon and you’re trying decide whether you want the boost of an iced coffee, the fizz of a carbonated beverage or the quench of a citrus drink. You actually don’t have to make a choice. A new citrus coffee soda called Keepers is blending all three into one reputedly refreshing drink. (Grub Street just called it quite possibly “the drink of the season.”)

A citrus coffee soda? The sparkling beverage blends “fresh lemon and lime juice with whole tangerines,” adds that to “freshly roasted single origin Ethiopian coffee beans” and brews it using “a Japanese flash brewing method” (boiled water plus ice) that gives it an especially “bright, refreshing flavor,” the Brooklyn-based startup explains on its website. The citrus-coffee brew is then cooled and carbonated.

People Swear Charcoal Lattes Are DeliciousRemember when charcoal was just a thing you used to heat your backyard grill? Then it became a trendy cocktail ingredient, rendering boozy beverages fashionably black. Soon your local barista may be handing it to you in your morning coffee cup.

Charcoal Lattes, using activated charcoal, are a thing in Europe and Asia, the New York Daily News reports. The images of the drink have been burning up social media, which had prompted speculation that America’s time will come.

by in News, May 23rd, 2017

What Do You Get When You Cross a Latte and an Avocado?What’s more on trend with millennials than artfully poured lattes and avocados? How about — hold onto your knit caps, cuffed jeans, ironic t-shirts, bushy beards and fixed-gear bicycles! — an artfully poured latte in an avocado.

by in News, April 28th, 2017

Clear, Colorless Coffee That Looks Like Water Now ExistsRemember when clear cola was a thing? Crystal Pepsi, Tab Clear — they were supposed to seem healthy and pure. Ah, the ‘90s. Now someone’s trying something similar with coffee.

A London-based company founded by two brothers is making see-through coffee it claims is “the first colorless coffee in the world!” CLR CFF (apparently the creators are as averse to vowels as they are to the color brown) looks, but doesn’t taste, like regular water. What it does taste like is a strong cup of joe, but — and this is apparently the point, in case you were wondering — it won’t stain your teeth.

by in News, March 2nd, 2017

Would You Pay $18 for a Cup of Coffee?Get this: A new coffee spot in Brooklyn (where else?) is banking that some people will shell out a full $18 for its premium bespoke brew.

Brooklyn Extraction Lab’s sticker-shock-inducing java is, Eater recently pointed out, the “most expensive coffee in the U.S.” It nudges into second place a $16 cup sold by a high-end San Francisco coffee purveyor, Blue Bottle, Gothamist notes. And that in turn unseated the $15 pour-over at Berkeley, California-based coffee joint Equator, which we’re sure unseated some $14 cup of coffee … somewhere.
