How Can You Make Your Coffee More Appealing and Unique?

To blend your coffee, try mixing and matching two or more types of coffee together

You don’t need any barista skill to nail those coffee drinks, and you don’t need to be dexterous.

Here are two tactics:

  • Make some flavored ice cubes with easy-to-find ingredients
  • Try to blend your own coffee

You can play around with any herbs and fruits for the ice cubes. I usually do mint, sliced strawberry, dark chocolate, vanilla bean, pineapple jam, and coconut milk. Mix them up to your liking and put them in the fridge until they are ready to be served the following day.

When the cubes melt, they release the richness, citrusy note, or nutty flavor into your coffee drink.

To blend your coffee, try mixing and matching two or more types of coffee together. For example, 40% of Arabica beans and 60% of Robusta beans for a subtle sour note at the base and a dominant, rich, and mouthful feel.

Alternatively, go for your favorite single-origin and blend it with a medium roast at different ratios. There is no specific formula for blending, so play around until you’ve found the perfect balance.
