4 Remarkable and Impressive Coffee Recipes: Espresso Martini, Mocha Margarita, Mint Mojito and Horchata Coffee Cocktail

Gone are the days when a simple cup of hot coffee was served after the meals just like Classic Mexican Coffee, Spanish Coffee and Irish One. People are still fond of them but the new generation is more attracted over cocktails. Cocktails are special kind of Alchemy which creates a smooth and magical effect when coffee and alcohol get engaged over ice. Coffee does the work of adding a bitter yet chocolaty effect to the iced-alcohol. This refreshing drink is responsible for the resurgence of coffee cocktails in the coffee market. Initially, cocktail was used by college students for late study nights but now this trend has turned into an entirely new genre of libations which ranges from cold brew concoctions to spiked espresso shots.

I will share with you three cocktail recipes and one Iced Coffee Drink. Horchata Coffee, Espresso Martini and Mocha margarita are shaken Cocktails while Mint Mojito is a perfect iced coffee for non-alcohol drinkers.

Shaker

Before moving ahead I would like to tell about equipment used for shaking. You can use a cocktail shaker or a sturdy jar. I prefer using cobbler-style shaker set as suggested by Mixologist website. As the shaker is made from stainless steel, there is no risk of breaking the glass and above all, steel helps to chill the drink incredibly fast.

Coffee

Regarding which coffee to use, I would recommend using an espresso or extremely strong coffee. It is indeed the quality and flavor of coffee which can drastically enhance the flavor and taste of final product.

So, Let’s Begin exploring the delicacy of coffee.

3.     Espresso Martini: Fell in love with this classic combination of coffee and vodka topped with java with a touch of sweetness.

This classic recipe is well known in creating a refreshing impact on the drinker. Espresso Martini requires a perfect blend of vodka, espresso and coffee liqueur. People on diet or who are saving calories can even enjoy this with or without sugar. This cocktail serves as a base for various variations of cocktail recipes made by adding different flavor syrups or chocolates or ice-creams.

I fact, if you are not having a simple syrup, you can easily prepare it at home. Quickly mix hot water with equal parts of sugar and allow it to cool. Syrup is ready!!!

Crushed Ice
½ ounce simple syrup

4.     Mint Mojito: A perfect cup of iced coffee for non cocktail drinkers

Well I use some specific tools for making this magical drink. These are:

Equipments:

Chemex 6 cup
Pour over coffee maker
Water kettle
Coffee filter
Muddler
Gram scale (to get the precision of ingredients)
Ingredients:

60 grams medium roasted freshly ground coffee
2 cups of ice
500 ml water
Fresh mint leaves
4 tsp sugar
Milk
Procedure:

yogurt-cofffee-with-crushed-ice

Add ice to your mug
Add coffee to the filter and shake the coffee dripper for even settling of coffee
Pre-infuse the coffee and finish off the brewing process.
Muddle together mint leaves (say 10 leaves) and raw sugar until they are crushed and fragrant.
Add coffee into a pitcher and then add sugar and mint concoction and stir it continuously.
Add ice and top it with a creamy layer of milk and few mint leaves.
Serve Chilled.
To make it tastier you have to be a little patient then. The more the coffee stays in the mug, the more delicious it turned out to be. In fact, keeping the sugar and mint concoction for few minutes in the refrigerator is worth a try.

I hope you enjoyed all the four recopies and Let me know in the comment section below.

FUNDAMENTALS TO OPEN A COFFEE SHOP

The idea of starting a business is a wonderful one.  If the decision is taken with confidence, it is the stepping stone of one’s success.  Mere having confidence is not enough.  There are some basic fundamentals to be followed to open a coffee shop.

coffeeshop

You want to open a coffee shop, you should first like the taste of coffee.  It is not that someone wanting to do business for instance, liquor should have the habit of drinking it.  No….. I feel Coffee is one such beverage that can be had by anyone (of course avoid giving it to children).

Being a coffee lover myself, I feel coffee is a good refreshing beverage. Coffee can be bifurcated as caffeine and decaffeine. Normally, Coffee consists of a substance called caffeine which is not good for people with health complications.  On the other hand, decaffeine coffee comes without the caffeine content. Nowadays, decaffeine coffee is available in market.  This sort of coffee is suitable for people who are health conscious.

You want to open a coffee shop, there are some basic fundamentals you need to study and take appropriate action.

 

  • Open a coffee shop of your own: Opening your own coffee shop means you are the boss. You need to work from the scratch i.e., investing, developing the business etc. As long as the business is legal, you are not bound to any obligations.

decaf__Cat__prod__pg_

  • Become a Coffee Shop Franchisee: Becoming a Coffee Shop Franchisee means you are the boss but you will working for a coffee brand as the company will provide you the raw material, knowhow and other support. Your only job is to manage the show. You will become part of the brand progress and hence will be bound to follow the rules and regulations of the parent unit.

 

  • Certifications from concerned Health Departments: This is very important point to the taken care of. No matter you open your own shop or take a franchise, proper and appropriate certification from health department is a must.

  • Investment: This again depends on whether you want to open your own coffee shop or become franchisee.  In case you opt for opening your own shop, then based on your financial level, you can start with a small amount and gradually improve your business.

In case of becoming franchisee, then also you will have to invest but this will be limited to shop premises and other expenses.  The basic raw materials will be supplied by the parent unit.

  • Publicity of your coffee shop: You want to succeed in coffee business, then study the market perfectly. You should be aware of the coffee related products, the promotions given by competitors, new innovations in coffee preparations etc.  I don’t say you should imply everything into your business, but awareness is always good. It always helps you to take necessary actions.  Developing a good social network is always the first priority.

6 Tips to Ensure a Perfect Cup of Coffee That Tastes Heavenly

Nobody is perfect but there can be a perfect way to kick start your day. Yes!!! An absolutely delicious and ravishing cup of perfectly brewed coffee can make your day not only refreshing but energetic too.

This article is intended to share some tips to make a perfectly brewed cup of coffee.

  1. Choosing Coffee Beans:

I usually don’t go to super market to buy coffee beans. I prefer buying them online from an online coffee shop that offers varieties to choose and the price difference indeed.  The eminence of coffee hugely depends on the quality of coffee beans. Be it green beans or roasted, but the freshness of the coffee beans is the main factor. As people are becoming more health conscious, a shift has been noticed towards green coffee. Store them properly air tight container placed at a cool and dry place.

  1. Coffee making equipment:

Before making coffee, make sure you have the right equipment for brewing.  If you don’t have, tryout some online coffee shops. Indeed they have the latest ones at best prices. Be it espresso machines, grinding machines or brewing equipment, all are available at a mouse click and are delivered right at your doorstep.

  1. Freshly grind coffee beans:

Don’t ignore this step. Different coffees require different grinding like French Press requires a coarse grind but an espresso requires a fine grind. Grinding incorrectly may spoil the taste of coffee. The taste is enhanced if you brew your coffee with freshly ground coffee beans. Instant coffees and E.S.E. (Easy serve Espresso) pods are also available in market. These are very simple and convenient to use. Buy them best at any coffee store.

  1. Measure properly:

Coffee to water ratio is something which you have to care upon. It’s purely about preference, some like strong and some mild. Make sure to use purified water, else the chlorinated one will ruin your taste of coffee. For a standard strength coffee 2 leveled tablespoons for a 6 ounce cup. The proper temperature is 200°F.  Keep in mind, reheating, boiling or holding it on warm place for longer time will make the coffee taste bitter or bad. Coffee will not hold its flavors for longer time, after it is first brewed. So brew only that amount of coffee, which will be consumed right away.

  1. Serve immediately:

Serve the coffee hot within 20 minutes of brewing else your effort would all go waste. Or add milk to make your favorite drink like cappuccino, latte or mocha. If you want to drink coffee at some other time, make sure you put in a thermo flask.

  1. Clean the equipments:

Coffee – Choose from a exotic range of 100% Pure Coffee‎

A coffee shop franchise is a business which is started with a very little investment.  Popular brands in order to expand their brand awareness and popularity, give their technology to small scale business men on payment of some fees initially.  Businessmen have to invest for the ideal location to setup his business and raw materials will be produced and supplied by the company.

 

Sometimes coffee shop franchisees don’t have to  pay any percentage-of-sales royalty or marketing fees to the main company. Franchisees simply order their coffee and other supplies from the company, which is how it makes its money. The company also works with franchisees to come up with the best layout, location, and business plan for each store.

Whenever I have visited a Coffee shop franchisee (as the main company is not located near my place), the aroma of good coffee forces me to sit down for a while and enjoy the coffee and forget everything else. There are other products such as tea, chocolates and bakery products like cakes, cookies, and biscuits available here.

Chocolates, its yummy taste makes the people consuming it forget all tensions atleast for some time. Gifting of Chocolates is a best idea as there is no age limit for consumption of good chocolates.  Only thing to remember while buying chocolates  is its quality.  A chocolate loses its taste if it is consumed after the expiry date.  Especially while buying chocolates online, this factor has to be considered.

If you are looking to order chocolates online for yourself or for your loved ones then you need to check out collection of good chocolates available on various websites.  Remember the website should be reliable. If I would have been given a chance, I would have opted Java Times Caffe https://www.javatimescaffe.com/.  It has wide collection range of chocolates, bakery products apart from beverages like tea and the very special coffee.

You can send the chocolates online to your loved ones. Place an order for required chocolate, pay the amount of chocolates and give the address where the chocolate has to be delivered and it will be done through the required medium based on the situation and distance of destination either by road, rail or air.

Buying or purchasing products like chocolates or bakery products online becomes a responsible task. Just do not blindly choose a product which is nicely printed on website.  You need to recheck the ingredients before buying any chocolate or bakery products online. Check the quality and expiry date and any negligence may result to unhygienic conditions.  You may fall ill by consuming the products ordered by you.
