Orange Zest Is The Secret Weapon For Combating Flavorless Coffee
By Natasha Brooks
Some heavy coffee drinkers and busy households drink too much coffee to maintain purchasing fancy stuff all the time and often settle for subpar coffee. Coffee fans who want to jazz up their cup of joe without breaking the bank will be happy to know they can create better-tasting coffee at home using items from their kitchen.
One favorite way people amplify their coffee is with orange zest, as coffee's flavor profile overlaps with chocolate's flavor profile, and who can resist the combination of chocolate and orange? If you do not have an orange to zest, another citrus fruit like a tangerine or clementine can be a tasty substitute.
In addition to orange zest, warm spices are perfect for even the best coffee recipes — think cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, turmeric, nutmeg, and cloves. You can also make your own instant mocha with a spoonful of cocoa powder, and a splash of vanilla extract will turn that into a vanilla mocha.
