Forget $4 iced coffees. Here’s the ultimate Cold Brew Coffee recipe you can easily make at home!
Instead of brewing the coffee hot, you brew it cold. Hence the name. Dur.
It makes your coffee creamier and richer. There is less acidity and more flavor. And it’s way cheaper than getting iced coffee at your local coffee shop.
So today, I’ve got an easy peasy method to make cold brew coffee at home. All you need is water, coarsely ground coffee, and a cheese cloth to strain everything once it’s brewed.

Ground coffee, a potent source of caffeine, is a natural hair care ingredient that can be used to promote fast hair growth. It even adds a natural softness and gloss to your hair, and more than anything else, serves as a natural dye which helps cover all your greys in the finest possible way. Coffee nourishes your hair roots by making your hair follicles strong, boosts blood circulation to the scalp, and improves its texture.

I’ll have a medium coffee with cream, sugar, and salt.
Wait, what? You read that right: Putting salt in your coffee is now a thing. We know it sounds totally strange, but adding salt to your coffee might actually make it better. Here’s why.
Putting salt into coffee, whether it’s adding it to the grounds before brewing or throwing it into a cup of already brewed stuff, will take the bitter edge off of an over-brewed pot of joe. While one should, of course, always aspire to the perfect grounds-to-water ratio to begin with, sometimes it’s just too late to go back. Plus, think of all the times you find yourself at an establishment with terrible coffee. That’s where the salt trick really comes in handy.

While I absolutely love the flavor combo of coffee and chocolate (mocha coconut anyone?!), it’s super difficult for me to enjoy almond milk or coconut milk in my coffee. It’s practically like adding water to it. I like adding cream or daily milk because it gives the coffee a creamy consistency. The almond and coconut milk don’t change the consistency and I’m just like… UGH. GIVE ME ALL THE CREAM.
So sometimes if I don’t want to do dairy in my coffee, I’ll throw it in a smoothie. So coffee in cold, frosty beverages is somewhat of a staple in my life.

Good news, Americans who love starting the day with hand tremors: Black Insomnia Coffee, a bag of caffeine that debuted in South Africa last year under the guise of being coffee, arrived Stateside recently. To make sure people grasp what they’re reckoning with here, the company has come armed with lab tests scientifically backing its “world’s strongest coffee” claim. Creator Sean Kristafor says he worked with Gerald Charles, a top South African roaster and barista, to reach a borderline-dangerous caffeine level — 702 milligrams for 12 ounces — through painstakingly sourcing robusta beans. Also, 16-ounce bags are Amazon Prime eligible, making them, for better or worse, “instantly available to the American public.”

"Cà phê trúng," or egg coffee, a Hanoi specialty in which a creamy soft, meringue-like egg white foam is perched on dense Vietnamese coffee.
There are hot and cold versions.
The former is served as a a yellow concoction in a small glass. It's consumed with a spoon and tastes almost like a coffee flavored ice cream -- more like a dessert than coffee.
The hot version comes resting in a small dish of hot water to maintain its temperature. The strong coffee taste at the bottom of the cup seeps through the egg -- the yellow layer on top -- and is quite thick and sweet, though not sickly.

Among all the other great benefits of caffeine, scientists at Indiana University have identified 24 compounds, including caffeine, with the potential to boost an enzyme in the brain—nicotinamide mononucleotide adenylyl transferase 2, or NMNAT2—shown to protect against dementia. The new study, "Screening with an NMNAT2-MSD Platform Identifies Small Molecules That Modulate NMNAT2 Levels in Cortical Neurons," appears in Scientific Reports.

I found a lovely recipe in Elizabeth David’s Italian Food for slightly sweet ricotta with a splash of rum and a spoonful of fine coffee grounds stirred through it. However, I prefer it with espresso rather than the coffee grounds. It’s a subtler coffee flavor and doesn’t seem to make your head spin as the straight grounds do. Together with the booziness from the rum and the hit of caffeine, it’s rather like a lazy idea for a tiramisu. Served well chilled in little glasses, it is a refreshing, elegant and surprisingly light way to end a meal.

Whether you down a quick shot of espresso at home, or suck on a quad latte for half your commute, you're one of millions who have come to rely on coffee's jolt of caffeine. Then, when work is done and you can unwind again, you head to the bar and order a glass of wine.
But hey, why not both?
Espresso with a shot of grappa has been around for a long time; Italians call it caffè corretto, "corrected coffee." The volatile grappa transports the essential aromas of the espresso straight into your nostrils, just enough to make you sit up and take notice.

Do you know the difference? Which one has more caffeine? There are a lot of factors that will affect the amount of caffeine in a cup of coffee, including the size of the drink and the strength of the brew. How much caffeine is in your coffee also depends on the type of roast you're drinking. There's a real difference between light roast and dark roast coffee when it comes to caffeine content as well as taste, and the way your coffee is roasted can also have an effect on how much caffeine it has.
But in order to understand the difference between dark roast and light roast, you need to understand how and why coffee beans are roasted in the first place. Click here to find out more: http://www.extracrispy.com/drinks/2196/whats-the-difference-between-light-and-dark-roast-coffee

The new product, called “Snow Brand Coffee Soft” (butter-like spreads are often branded with the word “soft” in Japan), is set to make its debut at supermarkets around the country from March 1. According to the company, the new spread will contain all the flavor and fragrance of the original coffee drink, including its sweet and mellow milky undertones, making it the perfect addition to plain bread, toast, croissants and pancakes. The soft spread can even be used to dress up sweet snacks and sponge cakes with a hint of coffee flavor.
