Coffee Recipes - One Coffee Cup At A Time

For the coffee lover one advantage of traveling abroad is the opportunity to sample the delightful international varieties of coffee recipes as well as the different ways of savoring coffee.
The possibilities of coffee recipes could be endless but just to mention a few (Caribbean, Mexican mocha, Cuban cubano and Grog) bring about a nostalgic feeling in my palate.
Lets take a look at some of these recipes.
The first is one is one of the more unusual. Be a little daring when making this one. First, start by baking a coconut for thirty minutes at 300F (134C). At the end of the thirty minutes, remove the coconut and set it to the side to allow it to cool. Once cooled break open the shell and remove the inner flesh and grate. Mix the meat, coconut milk and a half-cup of cow's milk in a pan and heat until it thickens. Then strain the mixture to remove the coconut granules. Mix the mixture with a cup of coffee and sip. Savor the coconut milk taste mixed with the coffee. Yummy
Next lets make a mocha Mexican style. This is a delicious blend of coffee and chocolate - two natural partners. To start with take a teaspoon of your favorite chocolate syrup and add a quarter teaspoon of cinnamon and nutmeg. Wow, this is starting off good. Making me a little hungry.. Next, pour in one cup of coffee and add white or organic sugar to your taste. To top it off you can mix with whipping cream, or top with whipped cream. You can't go wrong with this recipe.
Cubano is drunk like tequila, straight and like a shot. For the Americano, you might want to dilute with rum or hot milk. Add rum to taste, but any more than a tablespoonful of milk will really spoil the effect. Be adventurous!
Grog, a traditional English holiday treat is sweet and sour mixed into one. Carefully peel a large orange and separate into slices. Do the same with a lemon. Put a peel about the size of one orange slice into the bottom of the cup. Mix in one-third tablespoon of butter, a tablespoon of brown sugar, a pinch each of ground cloves and nutmeg. Then throw in a pinch of cinnamon. Pour in a half-cup of coffee and stir. Add heavy cream to taste. Happy holidays.
How about these international delights, such as Viennese, Turkish and Vietnamese?
For the Viennese, melt one-eighth cup dark chocolate into a sauce pan and stir in one tablespoon of light cream. Slowly add a half-cup of coffee and whip until frothy, then let settle. Sprinkle cinnamon and cocoa across the surface and taste with pinky raised. Now you're an aristocrat.
The Turkish is very simple. It would be to your advantage to obtain one of the special "dzezva" pots used to boil the coffee. Yes, boil! Turkish coffee is strong. This coffee is not for the weak at heart. Start with finely ground Turkish coffee. Pour a cup of water into the pot, then add a half teaspoon of sugar and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and add a teaspoon of the coffee, then stir and replace onto the heat. Remove after a layer of foam appears, then allow to settle and cool.
The iced coffee drink of Vietnam is not to be missed. Acquire a Vietnamese coffee press. The hard part is now over. Put the ground coffee in the press, and then pour a tablespoon of condensed milk into the bottom of a cup. Pour boiling water over the press and let drip. Stir and add ice. Wow!
Once again, taking an international world tour will reveal even more recipes that I did not mention in this article. This is not a bad idea if your interested in find new and exotic recipes.

Thai Coffee Recipe Using an Automatic Espresso Machine

If you love an espresso with a twist, you will love this Thai Coffee Recipe. And, if you own a Super Automatic Espresso Machine, you can make this hot beverage quickly and easily.
Now, my coffee recipes are not an exact science. Just as certain individuals prefer their coffee black and others like their coffee with a lot of Heavy Whipping Cream; we will not be specific with the amount of ingredients, we will let you adjust the ingredients to your taste.
These flexible recipes will give you an opportunity to experiment and have fun with the new ingredients. Here is what you will need for this recipe:
  • Fresh Roast Coffee Beans, a citrus variety such as Celebes blend is nice for Thai Coffee.
  • An espresso maker. An Automatic Espresso Machine, Semi Automatic or other.
  • Heated large Clear Glass Coffee or Cappuccino Mugs, or a to-go coffee cup, large.
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk dispensed into a plastic squirt bottle
  • Half n Half or Milk (whole, 2%, or skim)
  • Vanilla Syrup or Coconut Syrup or both
  • Coconut Milk
Dispense your Sweetened Condensed Milk from the can into a plastic squirt bottle. The purpose is to make the dispensing easier, more controlled, and helps you to decorate the glass coffee mug. Also, the container can be easily refrigerated. Once chilled, the sweetened condensed milk becomes viscous and slow to dispense. The squeeze bottle makes it easier to dispense the chilled, thick condensed milk.
OK, Lets make Thai Espresso Coffee
1. Start by warming your Large Clear Glass Coffee Mug
2. Squeeze the desired amount of Sweetened Condensed Milk on to the inside walls of the clear glass coffee mug. Also, dispense some onto the bottom of the cup. (The creamy white milk will contrast the espresso coffee mixture making an impressive display.)
3. Now it is time to make your espresso. If you are fortunate enough to own a Super Automatic Espresso Machine a touch of a button and within seconds you will be dispensing your espresso coffee directly into the condensed milk decorated cup.
If you are using a semi automatic or other espresso maker, you will want to have your beans ground, tamped, and ready to go before you start the recipe.
4. Dispense the desired amount of Espresso Coffee. I use a double shot of espresso and 6 oz. of regular coffee. I use a Super Automatic, but you can do the same combination using any available Espresso Coffee Maker.
5. Add the desired amount of Half n Half or milk, your preference. The heavier the fat content the richer your Thai Coffee.
6. Add Vanilla Coffee Syrup or Coconut Coffee Syrup. This will add more sweet flavor. You can use sugar free syrup if you choose.
Another variation, going with the Thai tradition is the use of Coconut milk.
The first time I worked with this creation I used decaf coffee beans so I could try a few cups and varieties without getting over caffeinated.
Experiment with this recipe and tell me what you find to be the perfect mix.
If you like specialty coffee beverages like this one, you can make this coffee treat in a fraction of the time by using an Automatic Espresso Machine. These machines are fabulous for entertaining and convenient for the pleasure of every day coffee and espresso at home, on the go, or at the office.

Low Carb Iced Coffee Recipe

Low Carb Diet's Won't Always Appease Sugary Cravings
The hardest thing with following low-carb diets is facing the terrible cravings for "sweet" tastes. Being forced to focus on meats and vegetables isn't always a bad thing, but it's hard to satisfy sugar cravings from these foods.
Thus, I've devised an excellent recipe to follow that will create a low carb iced coffee drink that won't make your belly grow wider a few inches. It's high in protein and low in carbs. The greatest thing about it is you can drink it without any guilt - satisfying the sweet tooth without ruining your diet.
Ingredients Required to Create The Low Carb Iced Coffee
You will require:
  • Shaker bottle
  • Ice cubes
  • 2 tbsp Whipping cream (37%)
  • ~2 cups of freshly brewed coffee
  • 1 - 2 scoops of vanilla or chocolate whey protein
  • 2 Stevia packets (it's a natural sweetener derived from plants, with no carbs)
  • Optional: Starbuck's carb-free caramel syrup (I don't usually use it, but it'll make it taste more Frap-like)
"Cooking" Directions
Step 1: Fill your shaker bottle almost to the top with ice cubes.
Step 2: Pour coffee into the shaker bottle until it is an inch or two from the top, and then put 2 table spoons of whipping cream
Step 3: Add 1 - 2 scoops of protein powder, and then 2 packets of Stevia.
Step 4: Mix up the concoction with your trusty shaker bottle, and let it sit for 3 - 5 minutes (the whey protein will taste better after a few minutes). Add caramel syrup if you want to.
Compare to a Starbuck's Frap
Nate's Iced Frap (1 scoop protein powder): 240 calories, 2g carbs, 25g protein
Starbuck's Regular (Grande) Caramel Frap: 270 calories, 53g carbs (Eek!), 3g protein
Avoid Regular Starbuck's Frap's
As you can see, this is a much better alternative to a regular Starbuck's Frappuccino. You won't get a huge insulin spike, and you'll get a healthy dose of protein to feed your muscles.
To those of you that aren't aware, the "insulin spike" that I speak of is what causes most people's fat gain. This is why it is imperative that one doesn't consume too many carbs unless they know they can work it off through physical activity. Thus, I am definitely going to be using this recipe quite often in order to smash the craving, while keeping off the pounds.
