5 - Cooking with Coffee

Heading into the final weeks of summer, I began feeling a bit bored with my backyard barbecues. So this past weekend I decided to spice things up a little. Add some zest to my salads. Spice up my beans. Reinvent my chili. Searching the Internet for new recipes, I came across what seemed like millions of recipes using, off all things, coffee!--My favorite morning drink; heck, my favorite any-time-of-day drink. So I immediately went to work in the kitchen to see if I could actually create a new masterpiece...

1 - Product Spotlight: Dalla Corte Mini

Dalla Corte MiniBy Nicole Jones -

The Dalla Corte delivers everything you’re longing for in an espresso machine and more. The Mini features unbelievable temperature stability, dual boilers that run independently of each other and an almost endless supply of steam. That being said, the Dalla Corte Mini is not limited to at-home use. In fact, it can be used in a variety of locations like a small café, restaurant, country club or anyplace you’d serve coffee lovers on a regular basis.

When I asked our commercial division what made the Dalla Corte Mini so special, they responded with two words – double boiler. The manufacturers of Dalla Corte utilized a dual or double boiler construction, which allows the boilers to run independently of each other at various temperatures. That means there's never a wait time for the boiler to cool off or heat up to brew. And, with the double boiler system, you can have two baristas working in unison, because it's possible to brew and steam simultaneously.

2 - Iced Coffee Cooling the World Over

Iced Coffee World GraphicBy Nicole Jones -

Whether you’re in Germany, Greece, Australia or America, iced coffee has become commonplace in almost every coffee shop where hot coffee once reigned king. Traditional drinks that were once served hot are now poured over ice, blended or shaken-up to make sweet, thirst-quenching drinks we’ve all grown to love.

But in some parts of the United States, as we learned last summer, the long-standing method of brewing iced coffee hasn't changed. Cold brewed iced coffee is a tried and true method, according to Louisiana natives. “It's part of our culture,” according to Brandon Hebert who went on to explain that iced coffee has been an integral part of his life for decades.

Remember way back when. –the good old days? Your grandparents walked a mile to school. And then a mile back. Uphill. Both ways. In the snow. With no shoes.
