September 29th, 2017
On September 29, coffee lovers across the world have a good reason to indulge in an extra cup of delight. The date marks International Coffee Day. If you have never heard of it, you are not alone. International Coffee Day officially started in 2015. The International Coffee Organization launched the trend in Milan, Italy at an expo. The day is celebrated with special events, promotions and gatherings. One of the main reasons for implementing an annual day of worldwide coffee celebration was to bring awareness to the hardships faced by coffee growers. If you are a coffee lover and prefer homemade creations, here are a few fun ideas to try for the upcoming coffee celebration.
Iced Orange Creamsicle Coffee
If you wish for the greenery to stay and are disappointed about seeing summer flavors being replaced with pumpkin spice, this coffee creation will give you a reason to drag out that beach towel one last time. Start by grating the peel of a whole orange. Put the peelings in the bottom of your coffee filter before you add your grounds. You can use a drip maker, a pour-over or a French press.
If you prefer to save time and use instant coffee, put the peelings in a fine strainer before pouring the water through and into your cup. For better flavor, use a medium roast. You should add at least a pinch of sugar or sweetener even if you normally drink your coffee without any additives. The orange peel may be too bitter without any sweetener. Add some heavy whipping cream, organic milk or almond milk. Add ice when you are done, and go bask in the sun with your delicious creamy drink.
Pumpkin Spice Coffee
For pumpkin spice lovers, there is no need to go spend upward of $5 on a specialty drink. You can buy a small jar of pumpkin spice at the store for a few dollars. If you want to keep it simple, shake the spice jar a few times over your coffee grounds before you brew them. With a pour-over or instant coffee packet, you can add a hint of pumpkin flavor. Put a slice of fresh pumpkin in the water before you heat it, and add pumpkin spice to the grounds or on top of the packet.
For a better taste, use a light roast with this recipe. Another option if you like a thicker blended drink is to dump brewed coffee into a blender, add a few shakes of pumpkin spice, add a large spoonful of pumpkin puree, blend the mixture and pour it over ice. You can add sugar and cream or a small amount of maple syrup for a robust fall flavor. If you use fresh pumpkin, you can toast the seeds with cinnamon and sugar. They are a nice snack with pumpkin spice coffee.
If you like sweet and creamy coffee on a cool day, this is a great recipe to try. You will need a hot cocoa packet or some baking cocoa with your desired sweetening ingredient. Instant coffee is also great for this recipe and makes it a quick fix. Blend the cocoa packet’s contents with the coffee after it is finished brewing. If you use baking cocoa, add a heaping spoonful or two and your desired amount of sweetener. Pour in a splash of milk, almond milk or cream. Add a drop of cinnamon oil or two squirts of cinnamon syrup. Ground cinnamon is good but will not be as good as cinnamon oil or syrup. This recipe tastes best with a dark roast.
