Spring is in the air, and Easter is just around the corner. As the days get longer and warmer, many of us are looking for refreshing and invigorating ways to start our days. That is why we are excited to introduce a new coffee drink that is perfect for the season: the Double Espresso and Ginger Beer. This unique combination of bold espresso and spicy ginger beer is sure to wake up your taste buds.
The combination of coffee and ginger beer may sound unusual, but the flavors actually complement each other quite well. The ginger beer adds a layer of complexity and depth to the drink, while the coffee provides a rich and robust base. The result is a drink that is both refreshing and invigorating, with a satisfying blend of sweet, spicy, and bitter flavors.
Overall, this drink is a great way to experiment with different flavors and textures, and it is perfect for those looking for a unique and flavorful way to enjoy their coffee.
In this post, we will show you how to make this new drink at home. So, grab a glass, and let's get brewing, shall we?
Note: If you prefer a sweeter drink, you can add a splash of syrup or honey to the espresso. And if you don't have ginger beer on hand, you can substitute it with sparkling water mixed with ginger syrup. The key is to balance the bold coffee flavor with the spicy kick of ginger for a truly refreshing and unique drink.
Tips and tricks
If you want to brew strong coffee instead of using espresso shots, we recommend grinding your beans just before brewing. This is essential for getting the best flavor from your coffee beans, as they begin to lose flavor as soon as they are ground. Investing in a good quality grinder can make all the difference. There are different types of grinders available, but a burr grinder is recommended for a consistent grind size.
And remember, the temperature of the water you use for brewing coffee can also have a significant impact on the taste of your coffee. Ideally, you should aim for a water temperature between 90°C and 96°C. Using water that is too hot can result in a bitter brew, while water that is too cold can lead to under-extraction and a weak cup of coffee.
By taking these steps, you will be able to enjoy a rich and flavorful coffee base for your Double Espresso and Ginger Beer drink, or as we call it Espresso Ginger.
And great news, we will be adding the Double Espresso and Ginger Beer to our menu very soon! This delicious and refreshing drink has already become a fan favorite in our taste tests, and we can't wait to share it with all of our customers. Starting next week, you will be able to order this unique combination of bold espresso and spicy ginger beer in all of our roasteries. Whether you are a fan of espresso drinks, ginger beer, or just looking for a new way to enjoy your coffee, we think you will love this drink as much as we do. So be sure to stop by and try it out for yourself – we can't wait to hear what you think!
