Meringue coffee

meringue-coffee

As far as mental coffee concoctions are concerned, we haven’t had many new ‘innovations’ for what seems like an age.

With the blue algae latte, deconstructed coffee and even wasabi latte being three of our most recent favourite entries into the thanks, “but, no thanks” category in recent memory.

But the addition of the meringue coffee to the world is an experience we think we could really rally behind…

The cheapest cities in the world for a cup of coffee

The-cheapest-cities-in-the-world-for-a-cup-of-coffee

An independent study into the worldwide costs of a cup of coffee has found that Rio de Janiero and Sao Paulo have the lowest average prices per cup anywhere on the planet.

This might come as no surprise, with Brazil being one of the world’s largest importers of beans on the planet.

Unfortunately for us Britons, a 10,000 mile round-trip is not likely to be on the cards anytime soon… …continue reading The cheapest cities in the world for a cup of coffee

Coffee around the World: Rüdesheimer Kaffee

The Rüdesheimer Kaffee was created by a famous German TV chef during the 1950s, it has grown to become one of the most popular drinks in coffee hours across Germany.

You could say the Rüdesheimer Kaffee is Germany’s answer to the Irish coffee…not that the question was ever posed…

The maths of the perfect coffee

maths-of-the-perfect-coffee

Mathematicians in the United States are claiming to have found the formula for perfect drip filter coffee, via some complex calculations and of course drinking plenty of coffee.

Brewing the so-called ‘perfect coffee’ is a little subjective surely? We all have different tastes, but we’ll humour these boffins for a little bit as they’ve put a serious amount of time and effort into their research.

These findings could help us all make better drip coffee, by applying a more scientific and precise approach. …continue reading The maths of the perfect coffee

Stay well this winter: Have more hot drinks

Stay-well-this-winter---Have-more-hot-drinks

It’s no secret that it gets colder during this time of year, unfortunately we as a species – despite our best efforts with global warming – cannot control the climate or weather systems. Which is probably for the best!

Cold weather can have a major effect on the health of a nation, and if anyone is directly affected by this, it’s the NHS.

So in their infinite health-giving wisdom, the NHS have given out guidance, in which they recommend we drink more hot drinks to keep ourselves healthy this winter…we couldn’t agree more.
