Because of its popularity, red velvet had become a big hit in coffee shops where the red velvet latte became a commercial beverage.

The red velvet latte from the coffee shop The Local MBassy that is based in Sydney is said to be one of the best red velvet lattes because of its foamy, creamy texture that tastes like a warm marshmallow cupcake.

Why Chicory Coffee is the Best Coffee Substitute

Chicory coffee the best coffee substitute

If you are looking for a healthier coffee alternative or you are trying to decrease your caffeine intake, the chicory coffee is the best coffee substitute that you can try that tastes like coffee, but healthier than coffee.

Coffee has become part of our culture whether it is a courtesy for our guest or a daily caffeine kick for an energy boost coffee has already part of our everyday life. However, drinking coffee for the long term can cause adverse effects in our body that may develop acid reflux, jittering, sleep disorder, and more especially when we drink more than the prescribed dose of coffee per day. That is why it is good to take your body for a break from caffeine and find a good coffee substitute that can give the satisfaction you needed.

One of the conventional coffee substitutes is chicory coffee where it is a traditional beverage of the New Orleans native.

What Happens To Our Body After A Cup Of Coffee

What is Chicory Coffee?

Chicory coffee is a caffeine-free herb that is a popular coffee alternative, which has distinct characteristics to coffee. Chicory is from the plant species Chicorium Intybus, subspecies Sativum which is roasted and grounded for drinking purposes.

Chicory plant is found in multiple countries like France and South Africa which are the largest producers of the plant, and now in the U.S, in the state of Nebraska. The plant is a hardy perennial with purplish-blue flowers that open and close at the exact same time each day. It is best t describe that chicory is like the sugar beet bulbs.

Both the flower and leaves can be foods, but the chicory root is used to make chicory coffee.

Chicory coffee is better than your coffee.

High concentrations of the carbohydrate inulin are caramelized through roasting and converted into d-fructose (fruit sugar). It also contains between 4 and 6 percent protein and a tiny quantity of fiber. The caramelized fruit-sugar gives chicory its unique dark brown color while boosting sweetness and decreasing the bitterness that is characteristic of the raw root. Roasted chicory contains none of the volatile oils and aroma that is present in roasted coffee. It also contains no caffeine. It does, however, yield 45 to 65% of soluble extractive matter, while coffee yields only 20 to 25%. This difference explains why less coffee and chicory can be brewed while still resulting in a beverage that looks (and tastes) quite strong. – Orleans Coffee

Chicory is a healthier coffee substitute because it is naturally caffeine-free, so if you are looking for a coffee alternative chicory is the best option for you because it tastes like coffee, but it is healthier than coffee, and making chicory as your coffee substitute can be a good way to reduce caffeine intake or eliminate it to your diet.

The best morning coffee alternatives

Health benefits of drinking Chicory

It is said that chicory increases bile production, moderates a rapid heart rate, lowers cholesterol and destroy bacteria which can be used to kill intestinal parasites (or act as a vermifuge), cleanse the blood, and improve liver health.

Alaska settled in the northwest of Canada is known to be one of the coldest State in the U.S territory where it is one of the U.S largest and most sparsely populated State.

Aside from its diverse terrain of open spaces, mountains, and forests, with abundant wildlife which makes it a tourist destination for outdoor activities, Alaska is also known for their love of coffee. Of course, who would not want a hot cup of coffee in a cold icy place?

In fact, according to NBC News Alaska was ranked second with the most caffeinated city in the U.S. The report is not a surprise since the city weather is always cold that is why Alaskan people take their coffee seriously.

So whenever you are planning to visit the city don’t worry because the place is copious in coffee shops where you can easily spot a coffee shack and coffee shops to get cozy throughout the day.

If you are in the city, or you are planning to go on a trip to Alaska the Boheme Coffee Lounge located in the alley off Northern Lights Blvd, Anchorage, is a must visit coffee place in the area.

Have you heard about Keto coffee? Well, probably yes because Keto Coffee is a trending topic right now, and since it’s the weekend we will be making a Coffee Lovers: Easy Keto Coffee Recipe. But before we jump into making the recipe let’s take a look first on what is keto coffee?

Keto Coffee is also popularly known as the bulletproof coffee, was introduce to the mainstream by Dave Asprey under the brand name Bulletproof Coffee. This coffee trend had become a big hit in the fitness world since it was debut in the market.

Why Keto coffee became a trendsetter?

Well, keto coffee has become a trendsetter because this is a recipe for fat burning and dieting baby! There are thousands of people across the globe who are looking for their perfect diet, and Keto Coffee seems like a perfect fit for everybody because one of the main ingredients is coffee.

Keto coffee helps boost your ketones, energize your body, and fully caffienates you throughout the day. It said that Keto coffee helps to suppress hunger, helps in losing weight, helps your brain to think fast, and gives you a lot of energy.

The Bulletproof Coffee Recipe

The most important ingredient of Keto coffee is grass-fed butter. So you need to ditch all your sugar and creamers, and all your lalaland stuffs for your coffee if you want to try and commit yourself into Keto Coffee.

Why grass-fed butter?

Instead of using creamers or milk in your coffee, the grass-fed butter will be your new icing on top for your coffee. Grass-fed butter is rich in essential fatty acids and other nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids, beta-carotene, fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K, CLA (a fatty acid with powerful fat-loss benefits), and antioxidants.

Another ingredient is the MCT oil thought this is optional but if you are trying to lose some weight adding MCT oil to your coffee is a good help in burning some calories.

Making Keto Coffee is super easy, it is like making your everyday coffee the only difference is no more sugar and creamer, instead we will use grass-fed butter, and MCT oil for our coffee.

So let’s get started in making our Keto Coffee for our weekend coffee treat.


Homemade keto Coffee recipe with coffee beans, butter, and coconut oil


  • Coffee
  • Grass-fed butter
  • MCT oil
  • Vanilla extract


  1. Brew two cups worth of coffee using your favorite method. You can use the drip method, pour over, use your espresso machine, and even your Keurig to make your coffee. However, if you wish to use your k-pods capsules make sure that your coffee doesn’t have any flavor, sweetener or creamer added into it, because we don’t want to ruin the health benefits of our Keto Coffee.
  2. . Now get your grass-fed butter, MCT oil, and an immersion blender or any deep mixing bowl or mug where you can put all your ingredients, and mix them all. When mixing all the ingredients, you can use a hand mixer, electric hand mixer, or to our preference better to use a blender where you can immerse all the ingredients.
  3. Add two .tablespoon of grass-fed butter to your coffee.
  4. Add two teaspoon of MCT oil or coconut oil. (depending on your preferences) Coconut oil works the same as the MCT oil.
  5. You can add one teaspoon vanilla extract to your mixture for additional garnish (optional only)
  6. Push on your blenders button usually between 45-60 seconds, wait until you see a frothy texture.
  7. Serve and enjoy!

Why does coffee mate is the number one coffee creamer?

Coffee Mate Coffee Creamers in Original, vanilla, Hazelnut, Italian Sweet Creme and Caramel latte

There are several coffee creamer brands in the market, but why does coffee mate is the number one coffee creamer?

Most of us admire our brewed coffee, but there is no denying that many of us love the taste of creamer added to our cup of coffee. The sinful taste of how creamers bring out a different flavor of coffee is addictive in the palate. It’s like coffee creamers are the sodium glutamate or “MSG” of coffee where when it added to our java it gives a smoother, milkier taste, that perfectly resonates, with the bitterly, chocolaty flavor of coffee.

One of the well-known brands of coffee creamers is the Coffee Mate. This bad boy has been standing long in line for many years, and it is known all over the world. The brand has manufactured by Nestle and had been debuted by Carnation in 1961. Since the product had released in the market coffee lovers fell in love with how it gives their coffee a different taste.

Coffee Mate is a milk substitute for coffee that is lactose-free. The first ever brand was first released in February 1961, followed by Coffee-Mate Lite and Coffee-Mate Liquid in 1989.

Does coffee mate is the perfect creamer for coffee?

We like to agree and to disagree about that because we think that there are better brands available in the market, but sadly most of these brands are only limited to some countries. That is why the brand Coffee mate is the king of all the coffee creamers because the brand is not only available in the 50 State of the US, but all over the globe.

Like in Asia when we say coffee creamer, coffee mate is the number one brand because it’s the only available creamers they can get in the market, and let’s be honest you can’t beat the price of coffee mate they are consumers friendly. Plus they have a variety of choices that cater to every consumer need. They have powdered and liquid coffee creamers. However, the availability of the product depends on the demand of consumers like in Europe, only the powder form of coffee mate is available in the country, and it is made without the use of hydrogenated fat, which is associated to heart disease.

What are the better creamers than the coffee mate?

Well, there are few like almond milk, soy milk, camels milk, and more. So basically they are milk creamers, but as we say most these are not available in some countries, unlike the coffee mate. And milk creamers are not that popular in most countries, especially for household coffee creamers. We can only taste those fancy frothed milk creamers when we grab our coffee to coffee shops, and they pricey, and that’s a reality.

Why does coffee mate is the number one coffee creamer?

The answer is right under our nose already, because of the availability of the product where it is available to all supermarkets worldwide and even to seven eleven and in other mini-marts, you can get a sachet or a bottle of coffee for your coffee. And the price is consumers friendly, and it’s proven by moms and dads, and coffee lovers that coffee mate gives the satisfaction they are looking for their coffee.

Cheese Coffee is the new coffee trend for Spring 2019

coffee and cheese

Have you ever tried to drink cheese coffee or have you ever heard it? Well, most of us might try and love the cheesecake paired with coffee, and the two are classic favorites by coffee lovers. Cheese coffee is the new coffee trend for Spring 2019 that buzzes social media and making headlines to coffee shop menus.

Going back three years when the bulletproof coffee makes headlines in the coffee industry, and to the health and wellness world where everyone is hooked up in adding butter into their coffee to fuse some extra-rich dairy fat into one’s diet.

Well, today adding cheese to your coffee is the new creamy topping that everybody is doing.

Percolate a Los Angeles based coffee shop known for their Instagram worthy beverages like their Melrose and Lush Vanilla drinks that are mashable worthy in dried floral toppings and vibrant, swirling colors. The coffee shop does not just have picture perfect drinks, but they specialize in brewing loose-leaf teas, craft coffees, and boba or popularly known as the bubble tea.

Coming this Spring is their new coffee concoctions the cheese coffee. This coffee blend is said like, “to be topped with a froth-like mascarpone cheese that tastes a little sweet and a little salty.” It sounds like a salted caramel drink that is rich and creamy.

According to, “the new coffee, as per its namesake, has a more bittersweet flavor. And it hits just the right balance of salty, nutty, milky goodness that will likely make Monday mornings just a little bit better.”

Percolate’s newest drink is called B.S.T or bittersweet-tiramisu. The cheese coffee is made from cold brew Guatemalan beans from Unincorporated Coffee Roasters. The B.S.T concoction is said to be a cheese coffee because the cold brew is topped with a layer of cheese, and finishes off with a little cocoa. Forbes reported that the drink is, “a mixture of very lightly sweetened cream cheese and heavy whipping cream.”

The bitter-sweet-tiramisu was not the first cheesy beverage that hits the market. Most in Asain countries like Taiwan and China where people loves to add cheese in their tea since 2010 and Percolate also release its first cheese-topped drink in 2018.

In Northern, Scandinavian cheese coffee is their traditional drink or meal in which cubes of cheese is added in their cup of coffee, and it is called “kaffeost” or “coffee cheese.”

“A traditional cup of kaffeost begins with a cube of cheese placed at the bottom of a wooden mug carved out of a birch burl (a bulbous tree growth). After pouring the boiling coffee inside, drinkers can spoon the softened chunks out as they sip, or enjoy the little cheesy dregs left at the bottom of the wide-mouthed mug.” – Atlas Obscura

Whether this cheese coffee is has been long overdue but honestly, we are excited, and we cannot wait this cheese coffee will soon to come to our local coffee shops and get to try the goodness of it. We are pretty sure there will be a twist to this coffee drink that differs from the traditional one, and what better way to welcome spring than tasting the cheesy goodness of a cheese coffee.
