‘Super Coffee’ One Of 2018’s Top Food Trends
When it comes to the food and drink industry, it is important to keep abreast of the latest trends. And with 2018 just around the corner, cafes and restaurants will be interested to hear that the ‘super coffee’ has been highlighted as one of the most popular crazes of next year.
‘Super coffees’ have been designed specifically for the health-conscious who want to increase their vitamin and mineral intake while enjoying their favourite hot beverage.
This is because a ‘super coffee’ is a traditional private label coffee with the addition of spices, seeds and flavours that are intended to boost the drinker’s health and vitality.
Consumers are jumping on this new trend, according to Pinterest, with more people wanting to transform their usual pick-me-up drink with the addition of these superfoods, so it includes some great health benefits.
There are several things that can be added to a coffee to make it ‘super’, including chia seeds, protein powder, maca, turmeric, oats, coconut sugar, almond milk, coconut oil, ginger, and even banana.
These will alter the flavour, texture and consistency of a coffee, with some combinations being thick and soup-like, and others very milky or spicy.
However, Pinterest has reported a 218 per cent rise in the number of ‘healthy coffee’ recipes that have been looked up and pinned on its site in 2017 already, with this figure expected to increase even more next year.
Other trends to look out for in 2018, according to the picture-led social media site, include recipes using edible essential oils and dairy-free desserts.
