25 Oct COFFEE TRENDS YOU PROBABLY DON’T KNOW ABOUT
It’s tough keeping up with names and trends in the coffee world, Flat White, Long Black, Red Eye, Doppio…
While many of us stick with our favourite version of our daily brew, to keep you in the loop, we’ve compiled some trends that you probably haven’t heard or seen yet just in case you’re feeling adventurous!
Who doesn’t love the art created in the froth of a cappuccino? We “oooh and aaah” at dogs, leaves and various other frothy artwork. We see you and we raise you coffee RAINBOW ART! Beautifully eye- catching and will no doubt cheer you up! (Created with food dye).

You wouldn’t need to ask us twice!

Not technically a coffee because although it’s latte by name, there isn’t any caffeine in this blue Instagram-worthy beverage.
Popular not only because it’s photogenic, the blue algae powder is said to be a powerful antioxidant amongst the other health-beneficial ingredients.
Made up of ginger, lemon, coconut milk, agave and blue algae powder, we haven’t tried this one but it is apparently a bit sour initially. Perhaps good for a mid-morning perk up!

VIETNAMESE EGG COFFEE
Don’t be put off, it may sound like an odd combination but it’s pretty delicious!
It’s probably sweeter than what you’re used to, making it an ideal dessert alternative.
Whisked egg yolks are mixed with condensed milk and poured over espresso.
We tried our hand at making this last year and adapting it slightly so that anyone could make it at home:
To make the original version, you will need authentic Vietnamese coffee and an espresso maker. Because we don’t have all that fancy stuff, we adjusted the recipe so that absolutely anyone can make it.
A dark roast coffee with chocolate notes works best for this recipe.
Serving: 2 cups of coffee with a 50/50 coffee & cream ratio
3 Pasteurized Egg
3 Tablespoons Condensed Milk
1 – 2 Cups Strong Filter Coffee
¾ Teaspoon Vanilla Essence
1.Crack open the eggs and discard the whites.
2.Add 3 tablespoons of condensed milk to the egg yolks.
3.Whisk the egg, condensed milk and vanilla essence together vigorously until the mixture becomes frothy and fluffy.
4.Pour your freshly brewed filter coffee into a (preferably clear for aesthetic purposes) cup until about half full. Gently top it up with the egg mixture. Drizzle a few drops of coffee on top of the froth.
5.Voila! Beautiful, delicious egg coffee.
