Coffee lovers! Are you missing going out to your favourite cute cafe and spending hours sipping on your cuppa? I do too! And only a true blue coffee lover will understand the pain of not being able to do so. But don’t worry, because here are four simple ways to have different variations of your favourite beverage!
1. Dalgona coffee
If you haven’t heard about this then you’re probably living under a shell! This coffee created a ‘stir’ on social media and pretty much had us all whisking away this creamy coffee! All it requires is 3 ingredients and a lot of patience. You need 2 tbsp instant coffee, 2 tbsp sugar and 2 tbsp hot water. Just whisk all of these together until it forms a creamy texture or even soft peaks and voila! Your coffee clouds are ready to be poured over hot or cold milk.
Who doesn’t like a frothy cafe-type cappuccino? And guess what… you’re just one step away from it! The coffee cream made for Dalgona coffee can be used to mix with hot milk and there you go! Hot frothy and creamy cappuccino is ready!
3. Creamy Cold Coffee
A tall glass of creamy cold coffee is a soothing beverage on a hot sunny day! It’s easy to make and tastes just like you get at cafes. All you need is milk (measured according to your glass), instant coffee and sugar (according to your taste), and marshmallow/ caramel/ chocolate pieces to top it up. Blend it all together into a nice creamy consistency. You can even add crushed ice and then blend if you make it thicker like a coffee smoothie. Pour it out in your tall glass, top it up with your favourite add on!
4. Filter Coffee
There’s no way any concoction can beat a strong cup of filter coffee. It works miracles for those looking stay afresh and is the ultimate drink for any coffee lover. For this, you will be needing the French Press though. Along with that 1/3 rd cup coffee powder (not instant coffee), 1 tsp sugar and 2/3rd cup of hot water. Bring the water to boil and pour it over the pressed coffee powder from the French Press. Let it sit for 15-20 mins or even longer based on how strong you would like your brew to be. Once the concoction is ready, pour it in a glass with some hot milk and sugar; and mix well.
The thing about coffee is that it’s so versatile, it can be had in any form and at any temperature; and it’ll be enough to make you fall in love with it!
