Although at BostonBeaN we believe every day is coffee day, the official National Coffee Day is Sept. 29. As a routine part of many people’s mornings, we salute our favorite energizing berry in its glorious liquid form.
The commonly known origin story of coffee begins in Ethiopia with a goat herder named Kaldi. He observed goats eating berries that made them energetic and kept them from sleeping at night. Fast forward to today, and coffee is a global favorite.
National Coffee Day was first celebrated in Japan in 1893. It initially aimed to promote fair trade and bring awareness to the needs of coffee farmers. What better way to celebrate the rich history of coffee than trying something new?
Everyone has their own preferences when it comes to a superb cup of coffee. However, coffee enthusiasts and experts agree that there are four essential components to the perfect cup: acidity, aroma, body and flavor. That is all they can agree on, though, as everyone has different taste interests.
Switch It Up Before You Brew
Your new favorite flavor combination can begin before you even add water. Elevate the entire pot by mixing different dry ingredients and thoroughly incorporating them into your coffee grounds. Some great and possibly lesser-known ingredients include:
- Unsweetened cocoa powder
These additions can influence the depth, warmth, tone and texture of your coffee, and all before you personalize your cup!
Make a Truly Unique Cup of Coffee
There are a variety of ways to add more dimension to an existing cup of coffee. The most obvious way might be to add cream and sugar, but the possibilities of what you can add are limitless. You can change things up by trying different types of sugar or experimenting with different flavors or types of creamers. You can even add flavored syrup or ice cream for a sweet drink! If you are more adventurous, you can opt for coffee additions popular in niche groups and international crowds. For example, give egg or butter a try in your coffee this National Coffee Day!
