You might be a coffee drinker who likes it served the same way every time. Whether you drink it black, or with cream and sugar, coffee can become the best part of your morning routine when you find one you enjoy. There is something special about making your own coffee brew. The delightful aromas that fill the kitchen are an added bonus! Coffee is popular for its delicious flavor, but also its profound benefits. It can help improve your energy level and concentration due to its caffeine content. Coffee is also known to contain antioxidants and essential compounds that greatly benefit your health. Let’s look at 3 creative ways to switch up your morning cup of joe.
Add Some Spices
You don’t have to rely on the coffee beans to give you the taste you desire. If you want to add a burst of flavor to your average coffee, simply add a teaspoon of cinnamon, nutmeg, or cayenne to coffee grounds before you brew it. These spices are flavor-enhancing rather than flavor-masking, so you can still enjoy the original flavor but with a fresh kick. Voila!
Use Alternative Creamers
The variety of creamers available today is arguably the best part about living in the year 2021. Each creamer will take your tastebuds on a journey unlike that same old cup of joe you are used to. Depending on the month of the year, you can switch up your creamers and enjoy seasonal flavors! Change your routine on a regular basis by using alternative creamers such as soy, almond, hemp, coconut, or oat milk. Adding fats from milk can change the texture of coffee, making it thick and velvety when blended well. The proteins present in milk may soften coffee's bitterness by binding to polyphenolic compounds.
Sweeten it Up
You know what makes the perfect pair? Chocolate and coffee, but you probably already knew that. Avoid the syrupy, sweet drinks you will find at Starbucks and make this tasty combination at home! There are so many ways to add chocolate to your morning cup of coffee. Here are some ideas, just to name a few: Java chips, unsweetened cocoa powder, cacao nibs and chocolate squares. Chocolate is known to soften the rich, bold bitterness of coffee beans, and is easy to grind or blend into any form of coffee. Most chocolate is rich in antioxidants, which also helps reduce to inflammation and promote overall wellness.
