Turmeric has been used in India for thousands of years as a spice, and it has powerful medical properties that can prevent and even cure some diseases. That is why when the turmeric latte trend buzz in the coffee scene everybody gets interested in these two superfoods mashup together.
the rising public awareness in the ingredient, along with hazy perceptions about its health benefits are what has adventurous baristas combining turmeric and coffee.
The same as coffee, turmeric is loaded with powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, most likely linked to an active ingredient called curcumin.
We did not get a chance yet to taste this turmeric coffee but according to Eat Sip Trip, “The spice smells a bit like orange peel and ginger and has an earthy taste a bit like cardamom or even cinnamon. For all of its bright showmanship when it comes to its appearance, turmeric is a fairly mild spice that generally plays well with other flavor profiles. Hence it’s newfound popularity in elixirs, golden milk, and yes, coffee.”
The turmeric coffee trend is barely new in the coffee menu so let’s say this is an experiment period for this new coffee trend, and recipes and taste varies from cafe to cafe. But if you want to get the benefits of the spice, you’re going to need a full teaspoon in your coffee. That sounds a lot of turmeric in your coffee that may leave tasting a bit too bitter in your coffee. So cafes’ offering turmeric coffee serving it with ground ginger and orange peel or zest to counteract the strong taste of the turmeric.
If you want to give it a shot to try this trend at home, you can also add a dash of pepper to your turmeric coffee. Well, don’t get anxious for the another out of the world condiments added to your coffee. Black pepper and turmeric are furiously reactive to each other. Pepper can increase the bioavailability of turmeric – the proportion of the food that enters the bloodstream upon consumption – by as much as 2,000%. So adding a little pepper to your turmeric latte won’t hurt your body, but it will help your body make the most of it.
