5 Best Ways to Drink Coffee
1. In a mug.
#1 for reals: BULLET PROOF
Butter in the coffee. Whaaaat? Yep. A tablespoon of organic, grassfed butter blended in your regular 8oz cup. The fat helps your body absorb the caffeine at the most efficient, optimal pace.
#2: COLD BREW
NOT iced coffee. Very different. The coffee brews over a longer period of time…at room temperature. This reduces the acidity and allows the coffee to absorb even more of the good stuff: caffeine. You can buy this almost anywhere now: Trader Joe’s, Whole foods, or you can make your own. We make ours in home...by the gallon! Yeah!
#3: RED EYE
A red eye is typically a dark brew coffee with a shot or two of espresso. A hearty, bold idea probably coming from the boiler maker forerunner where a shot of hardcore liquor is dropped into a beer to help it go down the pipes smoothly.
I’m the kind of gal that drinks her coffee black with extra caffeine and a dollop of espresso with extra beans and maybe some more caffeine on top. However, there are times when something sweet and spicy hits the spot. A Turkish coffee is a precise method of brewing and seasoning the coffee. Sweet, savory, with hints of cardamom, cloves, vanilla, and almond. Hard to find prepared well, but here’s a great link.
Just. Plain. Coffee. I could spend my entire life trying new coffee blends, beans, roasts, etc. Whenever I go to a new coffee house, I always try their daily roast, black, not piping hot. Do they do the simple things right? Are they so fancy they forget to have a strong base? That is the true test of any coffee establishment. Plus, the no-frills black cup of joe can be made at home…by the potful!
