You’re adding WHAT to your coffee?

 

Now Brewing Cayenne Coffee!

The purists will say don’t add a thing to that cup. We believe that our coffee should stand on its own with no added ingredients and it does. But who would add Cayenne???

 

That said, we won’t judge you for adding nutrition to your brew. We have always promoted blending fats for nutrient density and hormone control. So how can you use what you have in your kitchen to increase the power of your morning pick me up?

 

Our favorite secret ingredient combination comes from the crew at the Caveman Coffee Cave  in Santa Fe, NM. They are adding fats, cinnamon and cayenne pepper to a drink they call the Lencho. Sounds crazy but it’s  crazy good!  It tastes exactly like a dark chocolate bar with some spice at the end smooth and rich with a little kick.

What you need:

10 oz Americano or Brewed Coffee  –  1 Tablespoon unsalted butter  -1 Tablespoon MCT or coconut oil -1 Teaspoon Cacao Butter– 1 Dash Cinnamon – 1 Dash Cayenne Pepper 

Add all ingredients to a blender and blend for 20 seconds.

So why these ingredients?

First, 3  of these  are fats. We just can’t get enough fat. Fat fuels your body. Fat powers your brain. Fat controls hunger cravings. Fat powers your muscles.

Do we need to say more? Benefits of MCT oil range from increased energy, better digestive function, and even bacteria and infection prevention. Cacao is an antioxidant-rich superfood. It’s also a stimulant so adding it to a caffeinated beverage will keep you alert, long past a regular cup of joe. Best of all, adding fats to your cup helps control the insulin spike that occurs when drinking black coffee. Essentially, you’re mitigating the caffeine crash and maintaining your energy in a sustainable way.

 

The next two ingredients bring the HEAT, flavor, and a variety of other benefits.

Cinnamon is delicious, comforting, has a ton of health benefits. It has strong anti-inflammatory properties and has been used to help fight infections for hundreds of years.  It has recently been discovered to help improve sensitivity to the insulin hormone. It also lowers blood sugar by interacting with  enzymes that slow the breakdown of carbohydrates in the digestive tract. Cinnamon has also been found to have anti-cancer and anti-viral qualities.

Cayenne pepper has been used as a medicine for over 9,000 years. It stimulates circulation, aids in digestion and neutralizes acid. It’s even used to lower cholesterol, stop headaches and target blood clotting. It contains vitamin A, C, B6, K and E. A little goes a long way and its anti-inflammatory qualities can be helpful towards a number of autoimmune diseases caused by inflammation. Read more here

How should you grind?

There are so many exciting and delicious ways to brew coffee. Grind is very important for extractability and texture so here is a great little infographic we found from Moon Doggies Cafe.  As you can see you need a finer grind for drip and espresso making it easier for pressure and hot water to mix with the coffee grounds and draw out the good stuff. A coarser grind is required for french press, siphon and cold brew (not shown here) so you don’t have a ton of muddy water at the end.

Cold Brew at Home with White Gold Roast

Want to make your own overnight cold brew at home? It only takes 2 steps and it’s ready to jump start your day in 12-16 hours. Our White Gold roast is perfect for a cold extraction and delivers a refreshing liquid with a sweet tasting finish. The citrus flavor from this light roast is undeniable when it’s cold brewed. We can’t wait for you to try it.

Cold Brew Dreams

Cold brewing your coffee is a great way to decrease the acid in your cup because the process does not extract acid the same way that hot brewing does. Eliminating acid leads to a smoother and less bitter taste. It also preserves more caffeine and nutrients that are killed with heat. That’s why you feel that extra BUZZ with cold brew!

You will need:

1 Cup Coarsely Ground White Gold Coffee Beans

24-32 oz Frech Press

14 oz filtered water (or enough to fill within 1.5 inch of the top of your french press.)

Step 1 –Place coffee grounds in fresh press.

Step 2 – Add Water and cover then place in the refrigerator for 12-16 hours.

Press and serve!

To prevent over extraction empty the liquid into a pitcher or mason jar without the grounds.  Dump the grounds in your garden or plants to add nutrients in your soil.

The unique flavor, color, and quality of this bean are achieved through a one of a kind roasting process, never used before. The result is a coffee that’s almost white. It’s light, creamy, nutty and perfect for mixing with your favorite fats (butter/coconut cream/ MCT).

White Gold also has the added benefit of chlorogenic acid, characteristic of green coffee, which includes anti-inflammatory properties as well as promoting fat loss by regulating the glucose levels in your system.

The overall process, from growing to roasting, ensures the highest level of quality and sustainability, earning this coffee the UTZ and Rainforest Certification. The roasters are also part of the highly-selective Specialty Coffee Association.

Is Cacao Butter really butter?

NOPE! It looks white and creamy just like butter. It is actually tCacao Butter in Podhe inside of the Cocao pod that looks like a giant seed. The “butter” aka Theobroma Oil, is the essence of chocolate. It has the delicious aroma we know as the chocolate smell, minus the sweet smell of sugar that is added to make what we call chocolate.

Adding just a little bit of this to your drink will make it creamy and flavorful. Enjoy!
